Pest Control Quotes

There are 2 sorts of rat which you may encounter in Yatton, black rats and brown (or common) rats. It is relatively improbable that you will ever come across a black rat, and if you've spotted a rat fairly recently the chances are it'll have been one of the more commonplace brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (also known as ship rats) were at one time common and were blamed for the Great Plague, they are pretty rare nowadays, but where they are seen they are amazing climbers, have good hearing, and the females can give birth to between twenty and one hundred offspring each year.

Brown rats are typically larger than black rats (Rattus Rattus) and weigh up to 500g, with a length of about nine inches. A lot of the damage and destruction attributable to brown rats is down to the fact that to keep their incisor teeth from growing too long, they have to constantly gnaw stuff. Timber is particularly prone to their interest.

Kinds of Rat

You're only going to encounter 2 breeds of rat in Yatton, Somerset and throughout Britain. The Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus) and the Black Rat (Rattus Rattus).

The Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)

The brown rat (common rat, sewer rat, street rat or Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)) is the most commonly found rat in the United Kingdom and throughout Europe (also North America). The colouring of this rodent ranges between brown and grey, it grows to about 4" to 9" (with a similar length of tail) and has a weight range of between 140 and 500 grammes. This species was given its name Rattus Norvegicus (Norway Rat) since it was believed to have come to Great Britain by ships from Norway. It is nowadays thought to have originated from China or Central Asia. Brown rats have an acute sense of hearing but poor eyesight, they burrow extensively and climb well, they're omnivores but have a preference for grain cereals, the females will reproduce 5 litters of as many as Fourteen a year.

The Black Rat (Ship Rat)

The black rat, roof rat or ship rat (Rattus Rattus) is also not a native of the United Kingdom, originally coming from Southeast Asia (India). Quite likely traveling in shipments of spices for the Roman Empire, the black rat subsequently spread through Europe. Pretty rare now in Britain, the black rat was for the most part replaced by the larger brown (common) rat. Growing to lengths of 5-7 inches, this rat weighs in at just 75-230g. Black rats are renowned for spreading many different diseases, particularly listeria, rat bite fever, tularemia, bubonic plague, typhus, salmonella, toxoplasmosis, Weil's disease and trichinosis.

Spotting Rats

When you've got a notion that you may have rats in your property or business, there are a variety of means by which you could find out. You should be on the lookout for burrows or tunnels near to solid objects, listen closely for continual scratching noises emanating from lofts and walls, particularly at night, search for signs of tail trails or footprints in dusty areas, pay attention to gnaw marks in wood, cables and wires, particularly in lofts, keep your eyes open for faeces, they look like large grains of rice and are dark brown, watch out for rub marks on walls and skirting boards where greasy fur has left marks.

Rat Traps

Rat Cage

One technique which you might use to tackle rat problems is by the use of rat traps. Nowadays there are various different types of rat trap readily available, providing you with a selection of capture solutions. The capture type are the best alternative for folks who don't like to see creatures being hurt in any way whatsoever, even pests. If you look around you'll get a lot of different patterns such as: electronic rat traps, enclosed poison traps, spring loaded bait traps and cage traps.

Rat Poison

Using poison is one of the more nasty ways to eliminate rats and rodents. This is achieved by carefully positioning a bait laced with poison, that is then eaten by the rat resulting in death within a few days. When its placed in the appropriate location in or near a rat infested area, the poison can fairly quickly exterminate a large number of rats. Normally difenacoum, brodifacoum or bromadioline are the poisons used. Pets may also be harmed by ingesting such rat poisons, so be careful. Brands of rat poison made in Yatton include the likes of: Rentokil, Pest Expert, Propest, Elixir Gardens, RatKil and Roshield.

Problems With Mice

Whilst not so distressing as uncovering rats scampering around garden or house, having mice may be equally as much of an issue. The same as rats, mice breed rapidly, contaminate foodstuffs, leave droppings, gnaw at stuff and are basically a nuisance. Also, just like rats, trapping and poisoning are the favoured techniques for resolving mouse infestations in Yatton. Yatton rat catchers will also be happy to help you solve mice infestations, so call one up or pay a visit to BARK and get the problem sorted.

Rat Burrows

Digging is one thing that rats really love to do and it's alongside solid objects or structures such as patios, garages, shed bases and walkways where they predominantly like to dig. Useful for shelter, food storage and nesting, burrows are dug into extensive networks which could even cause damage to buildings if allowed to continue. Look out for holes having smooth edges, which have been rubbed by the continuous coming and going of these busy little creatures. Commonly about two to four inches across, entrance holes to rat burrows are normally fairly easy to spot. A simple way to learn if rats still live in that particular burrow is to throw a bit of rubbish into the burrow and see if it's been cleared away the following day.

To Summarise

Having a rat problem in Yatton is something that everyone dreads, and when this happens to you, you may have the urge to try to solve it on your own. Rat traps, rat poisons and similar products are easily obtainable in supermarkets, hardware stores and shops in and around Yatton, so the things that you need can be easily purchased.
