Wingerworth Rat Catchers and Pest Experts

Wingerworth Rat Catchers (S42): Though it's not so commonplace at present, observing rats in your house or garden in Wingerworth is not really a nice thing to experience. Just one sighting of a rat shouldn't be that much of a cause for concern, but, if you witness the presence of rats more frequently or see more than one you could soon be in trouble since they tend to breed so rapidly.

Pest Control Quotes

There are actually two species of rat that you might spot in Wingerworth, brown (common) rats and black rats. It's pretty improbable that you'll ever see a black rat, and if you've seen a rat recently its likely to have been the more common brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were once common and were responsible for the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they're relatively rare nowadays, but where they are found they have an acute sense of hearing, are terrific climbers, and can produce between twenty and one hundred baby rats every twelve months.

The black rat at 5 to 7 inches, is smaller than the brown variety, which attains lengths of up to about 9" and weighs around 500g. A great deal of the damage and destruction attributable to brown rats is because to prevent their teeth from getting too much, they must continuously gnaw stuff. Items made of timber are especially vulnerable to this interest.

Rat infestations cause a number of issues for home or business owners throughout Wingerworth, they'll leave behind droppings, spread disease, gnaw through insulation, wires, woodwork and pipes, and get up to all sorts of mischief. Any frequent sightings of rats should be reported to the local council. Or even go HERE to report pest problems and rat sightings on the .gov website online.

Wingerworth Pest Control

You won't necessarily have to witness rats to confirm their existence, due to the fact that there are a few telltale signs which may warn you of their activity. Perhaps you may hear scratching noises coming from a loft, floor or wall, you might encounter rat holes chewed into floorboards or skirting boards, you may start seeing droppings on floors or in cupboards or you could stumble upon a rat's nest hidden away somewhere.

To take care of this issue there are various routes that you could consider. You could lay down poison or traps yourself, you could retain the services of a pest removal specialist or you could get in touch with your local Wingerworth authority or council. There are no longer so many folks nowadays who just specialise in rat problems, you are also able to bring them in if you have a problem with a wasps nest in your walls or perhaps moles digging up your lawn.

Rat Bites

While not that commonplace in the British Isles, rat bites do happen periodically, and in some instances they can be dangerous. When rats are cornered or feel stressed, they can attack and bite humans, thus should you find yourself in a situation like that, leave a clear exit route and stay well out of the way.

These types of bites occasionally occur when rats are being kept as pets, and you could be chancing it somewhat if you shove your hand inside a rat's cage, regardless how tame it seems. While rat bites aren't serious in all instances, they must be avoided if possible, and can become infected or be life threatening if they turn into "rat bite fever". "Rat bite fever" (RBF), if it is left untreated, has a 10% mortality rate.

Signs of Rat Bite Fever - Some of the symptoms of "rat bite fever" are:

  • Joint Pain or Swelling
  • Headache
  • Rashes
  • Vomiting
  • Fever
  • Swelling or Redness
  • Muscle Pain

If you are ever bitten by a rat you should wash the wound immediately, apply an antibiotic ointment, and cover it up with a clean bandage or gauze. Even if you do not consider that it is too severe, you should have it looked at by your nearest A&E unit, or make an appointment to see your doctor or GP. It is also recommended to get a tetanus vaccination, particularly if you have not received one in the last 5 years or so.

Wingerworth Mole Catching

While no longer such a common issue nowadays moles are sometimes dealt with by rat catchers. In no way such disliked creatures, moles cause different problems to rats. Lawns and gardens are mainly vulnerable when you've got a mole problem. Evidence of their destructive activity can plainly be spotted in the form of scattered piles of earth on neatly trimmed lawns. Moles are often caught in traps and rereleased elsewhere, if you prefer a more humane method. (Tags: Mole Trapping Wingerworth, Mole Catchers Wingerworth)

What Attracts Rats?

With their twitchy whiskers, pointy faces and furry bodies, some people may find mice and rats to be quite cute, however they're not the type of animals that you want to have living in your house or garden in Wingerworth, and can actually be more dangerous than you would suppose. Mice and rats can cause damage to your house by gnawing through electric wires, skirting boards, plastic and insulation materials, and are quite often the cause of fires and other accidents. Between them mice and rats can spread over 30 forms of diseases including things like bubonic plague, listeria, Weil's disease, trichinosis, tularemia, salmonella, toxoplasmosis, rat bite fever and typhus. Amongst the things around your garden and home that will be attractive to rats and mice are:

  • WATER - Busy little mice and rats have to drink, therefore sources of water such as birdbaths, leaking pipes, seeping sprinkler systems and pet bowls are a big temptation for these unwanted pests.
  • PET WASTE/COMPOST - Remarkably pet waste and even heaps of compost can attract rodents - there are likely to be a few tasty morsels hidden in there!
  • CLUTTER - General clutter and jumble in an outbuilding, cellar or loft will be particularly attractive to rats and mice, particularly if there's a food source nearby.
  • FOOD - Food left lying around or discarded is one of the primary attractions for mice and rats.
  • TRASH - Accumulations of trash and garden rubbish piled up on your property (particularly in the garden) will attract mice and rats.
  • HOLES AND ENTRY POINTS - Mice and rats can squeeze through the tiniest of holes, so keep an eye out for spaces around doorways, air vents, pipework and crawl spaces.

Do You Have Rats?

There are a few ways that you can find out when you've got rats. When you've got an idea that there could be rats in your business or property you should try to find signs of tail trails or footprints in dusty areas or on loose soil, pay attention to gnawing in wood, cables and wires, especially in lofts, watch for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on walls and skirtings, listen closely for scratching noises coming from walls and lofts, particularly during the night, look out for burrows or holes next to solid objects, keep your eyes open for rat droppings, they look much like large grains of rice and are dark brown.
