Wednesfield Rat Catchers (WV11): Whilst its not that common these days, seeing a rat in your garden or house in Wednesfield is not really a great experience to go through. One rat sighting should not be too much of a problem, nevertheless, if you spot rats more frequently or spot more than one rat you could soon be in for trouble as they reproduce so quickly.

There are actually 2 kinds of rat which you might come across in Wednesfield, black rats and common (brown) rats. It is rather improbable that you will ever see black rats, and if you've stumbled upon a rat just recently the chances are it will have been one of the more commonplace brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (also known as ship rats) were once common and were blamed for the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they're rather scarce now, but where they are seen they are amazing climbers, have an acute sense of hearing, and the females can produce between 20 and 100 offspring each year.

The black rat at 5" to 7" long, is smaller than the brown variety, which reaches lengths of up to about 9" and weighs in at about 500g. Brown rats cause destruction because they've got to continually gnaw at things to stop their teeth from growing too much. Wooden items are especially susceptible to their attention.

An infestation of rats may cause all sorts of problems for business owners and householders in and around Wednesfield, they'll transmit disease, leave droppings, gnaw their way through wires, pipes, woodwork and insulation, and get up to all sorts of mischief. The local authorities ought to be informed whenever rats are spotted. Or otherwise head HERE to report incidences of rats and pests on the .gov website.

Pest Control in Wednesfield

It is not always by sight alone that you'll become aware of the existence of rats, their behaviour is sometimes enough to give warning. It is possible you may hear scratching noises coming from a floor, wall or loft, you may start seeing droppings on floors or in cupboards, you may uncover a rat's nest hidden away somewhere or you could observe rat holes gnawed into skirtings or floorboards.

Unless you wish to wait for environmental health to remedy your problem it's also possible to bring in local Wednesfield rat catcher or pest controller who will be competent in the art of pest removal. In the old days, rat catchers were exactly that, but at present they tend to be known as pest control experts and will not only be able to help with rat problems but also solving problems with moles, cockroaches, mice, ants, wasps and more.

Rat Prevention Wednesfield: The best way to avoid problems with rodents is not to encourage them to start with. So, even if you do not actually have a problem with rats, rat prevention has to be extremely high on your priority list. One of the principal reasons behind rat and rodent infestations is domestic rubbish in gardens. Supplying them with both the materials and location for nests will only attract them. If there's also an abundance of food on offer these rats think they're in paradise, so be warned that many bird seed feeders attract rats, particularly when they're prone to spilling over, and household waste food shouldn't be left lying around.

Rat Traps: One of the ways that you can deal with a rat infestation is to use rat traps. You will find various different kinds of rat traps nowadays, some which actually kill rats and some which imprison the rat for later release. If you're opposed to the harming of animals, perhaps the capture style traps are the optimum solution. The available styles of rat traps include the likes of: electronic rat traps, spring loaded bait traps, cage traps and enclosed poison traps.

Rat Poisons: Using poison is one of the more unpleasant methods by which to get rid of rat infestations. This is normally done by setting a bait laced with poison, that's then ingested by the rat leading to its death several days later. A considerable accumulation of rats can be killed by this process as long as the poison is set correctly. The poisonous components that are used in making rat poisons include: difenacoum, brodifacoum or bromadioline. Cats and dogs might also be killed by ingesting rat poison, so be mindful. Rat poison brands available in the British Isles include the likes of: RatKil, Rentokil, Pest Expert, Roshield, Propest and Elixir Gardens.

Spotting Rats: There are plenty of ways by which you can tell if you have rats. If you have suspicions that there might be rats in your home or business you could pay attention to gnaw marks in cables, wires and wood, particularly in lofts, search for tail trails or footprints in dusty areas or on loose soil, keep an eye out for droppings, they are dark brown in colour and look just like large grains of rice, watch for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on walls and skirtings, be on the lookout for burrows or holes next to solid surfaces, listen closely for scratching noises coming from rooves and walls, in particular during the night.

Burrowing: When you have rats running around your garden, the likelihood is that there will be a burrow somewhere. Rats like to burrow and they commonly excavate them near to solid objects or structures such as garden sheds, garages, patios and walkways. These are the best locations to check if you think there are rats in the area. These are not just straightforward holes, but rather substantial networks of burrows, intended to provide shelter, food storage and nesting places. A sure sign of a rat burrow is a smooth sided hole adjacent to a solid structure, where the coming and going of furry bodies have polished and rubbed the burrow entrance. The burrow entrances are generally approximately two to four inches in diameter. A simple way to determine if rats are still in the burrow is to throw a bit of stuff into the burrow entrance and check if it has been cleared away the following day.

Rat Sightings - Reporting: This is more detail on a subject that we discussed earlier in this article. It is always a great idea to report it to the local authorities if you spot rats in a neighbours garden, in your own garden or in a public area. Certain local councils provide a free service for dealing with rats but payment is normally needed for most unwelcome pests like wasps, cockroaches and bed bugs. Rat infestations may also be reported by visiting the Government (.gov) webpage HERE. To get the issue sorted immediately book a rat catcher HERE.
