Why are rats such a problem?
Rats infest over one million homes in the United Kingdom annually; and wherever you live in Reading, Tilehurst, Woodley, Wokingham, Maidenhead and Bracknell, rat problems are on the increase with more and more reports to local pest control companies and the local authority Environmental Health every year. Rats are natural opportunists and take advantage of dropped food, poorly maintained buildings and in general mankind; rats and mice are known as 'comensul rodents' which is taken from the Latin for sharing a meal - they eat from the table of man.
If you run a business the presence of rats in your property affects your customers' perception and is especially harmful to food or retail businesses and could lead to the business being shut down by the Environmental Health Department. Rats affect public health whether in commercial buildings or even within domestic homes by the transmission of infectious diseases and bacteria, such as salmonella and Weils Disease.
What damage do rats cause?
Rats whether living in the garage, outbuildings or your shed can cause serious damage and financial loss by constantly gnawing through live electrical wiring, resulting in fires and failure of freezers and household appliances. Rats will also contaminate stored food stuffs with their urine and feces which again increases financial losses and presents a risk to human health.
Rat eradication including prevention How do you spot a rat infestation? Tell tale signs of rats:
Rats teeth keep on growing and they gnaw to keep them sharp and worn down, they leave will gnaw marks on hard plastic and items such as wooden or aluminium door frames. They have really greasy fur which leaves a tell-tale mark so look for smear marks on surfaces where they travel, you may also see strands of rat hair caught on rough or sharp edges. Rat infestations are not confined to the ground floor as they are adept climbers able to scale vertical walls, they will often use cavity walls as a route to the loft and in the winter months they are commonly found living in the loft.
Another noticeable sign that there are rats in your house are their droppings which are around 12mm in length and taper to a point at both ends, these give off a noticeably stale odour and rats leave around 40 droppings a day. In confined places like lofts, sheds, under floorboards and outbuildings rat urine gives off a strong sharp odour and this can be overpowering.
Good housekeeping and hygiene will successfully limit the number of rats that can live in and around the area. Outdoor pest control will eradicate a rat problem and combined with regular pest inspections that form a monitoring plan coupled with physical proofing, these actions will prevent further infestations and problems with rats.
