Wem Rat Catchers (SY4): Seeing a rat in your garden or even inside your house could be quite an alarming experience even though it's not so common an occurrence in Wem nowadays, its definitely not unheard of. Rats tend to breed quickly and will likely cause issues, particularly when they are seen in numbers. An individual incidence of a solitary rat probably won't be all that much of a concern, however if you are seeing them on a regular basis it's best to do something.
There are two sorts of rat which you might run into in Wem, brown (or common) rats and black rats. It's relatively unlikely that you will ever come across a black rat, and if you've stumbled upon a rat recently chances are it'll have been the more commonplace brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were once common and were responsible for the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they are pretty scarce now, though when they are found they are superb climbers, have good hearing, and the females can produce between 20 and 100 baby rats in a single year.
The longest of the two rat varieties is the common brown at around nine inches, whilst the black rat (Rattus Rattus) only grows to between 5" and 7". Most of the damage attributable to brown rats is down to the fact that to prevent their incisor teeth from growing too long, they have to continuously gnaw stuff. Their interest is usually focused on items made from timber.
Rats may cause many issues in homes and businesses around Wem and they spread disease, leave droppings, gnaw through wires, insulation, woodwork and pipes, and generally cause a nuisance. Any sightings of rats should always be reported to the local authority. Or otherwise post a report to record pest and rat sightings on the .gov website HERE, which should be forwarded to the relevant local authorities.
It is not only by sight that you'll become aware of the presence of rats, their behaviour is oftentimes enough to enlighten you. It could be that you may hear scratching coming from a wall, floor or loft, you could notice droppings on the floor or in cupboards, you could come across a rat's nest hidden away somewhere or you could spot holes chewed into skirting boards or floorboards.
If you don't want to wait around for environmental health to address your rat issues you can also speak to a local Wem rat catcher or pest controller who'll be an expert in the world of pest removal. In the world today rat catchers usually come under the umbrella of pest control, and pest control experts not only deal with rats but in addition bedbugs, fleas, cockroaches, moles, mice, wasps and many other kinds of garden and household pests.

Rat Prevention Wem
The easiest way to prevent problems with rats is to discourage them from the beginning. For this reason, deterring rats and mice must be a thing to look at even though you don't currently have a rat problem. Domestic rubbish littered around your garden is amongst the primary reasons for rat infestations. Supplying both the location and materials for nests will only encourage them. If there's also lots of food available your rats will be in paradise, so be warned that bird seed feeders often attract rats, particularly when they're liable to spilling over, and domestic waste food should never be easily accessible.

Have You Got Rats?
There are plenty of ways that you can tell if you have rats. When you've got some suspicions that there may be rats in your home or business you should be on the lookout for tunnels or burrows alongside solid surfaces, try to find footprints or tail trails in dusty areas or on loose soil, check for gnawing in wires, wood and cables, particularly in lofts, watch for rub marks on skirtings and walls where greasy fur has left marks, listen for constant scratching noises emanating from walls and attics, in particular during the night, keep an eye out for rat droppings, they're dark brown in colour and look just like large grains of rice.
A thing which rats love to do is dig and burrow, and the area that they predominantly prefer to dig is close to solid objects or structures such as garden sheds, paths, terraces and garage foundations. These are not often just straightforward holes in the ground, but substantial networks of burrows, created to use as a nesting place, shelter and food storage. A certain sign of a rat burrow is a smooth sided hole near to a solid structure, where the motion of hairy critters have rubbed and polished the entrance. Generally around 2-4 inches across, burrow entrances are not hard to identify. A smart way to discover if rats are still living in the burrow is to toss some rubbish into the entrance hole and find out if it's been cleared away the following day.
Mouse Problems Wem
Whilst not so upsetting as discovering rats in your house or garden, mice can be nearly as much of an issue. While not so big, mice are still going to breed rapidly, leave droppings, gnaw at stuff and contaminate foodstuffs. Also, much like rats, poisoning and setting traps are the favoured methods for resolving mouse problems in Wem. Wem rat catchers will also be willing to help you with mice infestations, so get on the phone or go to BARK to get the problem sorted.
Problems With Moles
A few rat catchers in Wem can also help with moles. Moles cause issues in a different way to rats and aren't quite so despised. It's outside in your garden where you are likely to have problems with moles, and lawns especially are at risk. Beautifully clipped lawns spoiled by unsightly piles of freshly dug dirt are a sure sign of mole activity. Moles are often caught in traps and re-released somewhere else, if you prefer a humane solution.
Having a problem with rats in Wem is a situation that everyone fears, and when this happens to you, you might be tempted to try to solve it yourself. Rat traps, rat poisons and other similar merchandise is available in hardware stores, shops and supermarkets in and around Wem, so the items that you need can easily be bought.
