Pest Control Quotes

Although neither of the two rat types presently seen in Great Britain are native to these islands, they've clearly made themselves at home. The brown rat is especially widespread whilst the ship (black) rat is not so much so these days. Both species fled from Asia and got to the British Isles aboard ships.

The brown rat is larger than the black rat (Rattus Rattus) and can weigh nearly half a kilogram, with a length of roughly 9". A great deal of the damage and destruction attributable to brown rats is down to the fact that to prevent their incisor teeth from getting too long, they have to continuously chew on things. Wooden items are particularly susceptible to this attention.

Rat Bite Wounds

Although not all that common in Great Britain, rat bites certainly do occur on occasion, and in certain circumstances they can be dangerous. Rats can bite humans when they feel scared or cornered, so in a confined space it's advisable to stay out of their way, and leave them an easy exit route.

Rat bites have been known to occur in properties where rats are being kept as pets, and poking your hand into a rat's cage is certainly a manoeuvre you should avoid. Rat bites aren't necessarily dangerous, but must be avoided wherever possible, and they can become infected or be life threatening if they turn into "rat bite fever". "Rat bite fever" (RBF), if left untreated, can cause death, and has has a 10% mortality rate.

Signs of Rat Bite Fever (RBF) - A number of symptoms can be experienced by someone with "rat bite fever" (streptobacillary RBF) including:

  • Vomiting
  • Rash
  • Muscle Pain
  • Fever
  • Swelling or Redness
  • Headaches
  • Joint Pain

If you are unfortunate enough to get bitten by a rat, carefully wash the wound in warm water, apply some antibiotic cream, and bandage the affected area. You need to book an appointment to see your doctor, or head straight to the closest A&E, even if you feel it isn't that severe. Having a tetanus vaccine is also recommended, in particular if it's more than five years since your last one.

Species of Rat

There are two sorts of rat that it's possible to run into in Wednesfield or anywhere else in Britain for that matter. The Brown Rat and the Black Rat.

The Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)

In Wednesfield, the rest of the United Kingdom and Continental Europe the most widespread type of rat is the brown rat (Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus), common rat, street rat or sewer rat), this is what you will sometimes discover in your garden or home. The brown rat (it can sometimes be grey) is commonly 4" to 9" in length (not including the tail) and weighs in at 140 - 500 grammes. It almost always lives wherever people are living. Whilst once thought to have originated from Norway (hence its name), it's now known to have first come from China/Central Asia. Brown rats burrow a lot and climb well, they have bad eyesight but good hearing, the females can give birth to 5 litters a year, they will eat virtually any foodstuffs (omnivores) but have a preference for grains and cereals.

The Black Rat (Ship Rat)

Originating in India and Southeast Asia the black rat, ship rat or roof rat (Rattus Rattus) is also not native to Great Britain or Europe. Possibly traveling in spice shipments in the times of the Romans, the black rat subsequently spread throughout Europe. The black rat was once a common sight in the British Isles but was essentially ousted by the larger brown rat and is now fairly uncommon. Weighing just 75-230g, the black rat reaches a length of five to seven inches. Black rats have a reputation for spreading many diseases, particularly trichinosis, rat bite fever, typhus, bubonic plague, tularemia, listeria, salmonella, Weil's disease and toxoplasmosis.

Problems With Mice in Wednesfield

While not as unsettling as uncovering rats scurrying around garden or house, mice could be as much of a problem. While a lot smaller, mice still contaminate foodstuffs, gnaw at stuff, leave droppings and breed quickly. Also, much like rats, poisoning and setting traps are the favourite techniques for dealing with mouse problems in Wednesfield.
