Nottingham rat problems
Rats are a common problem in Nottingham. They live and travel in much of the areas sewers, occasionally breaking out into people’s properties or businesses. Rats are also commonly found above ground living in various structures, gardens and fields. They can carry and transmit many different diseases including Weil’s disease, E-coli, Leptospirosis and Salmonella, contaminating food and drinking water. They can also carry fleas, ticks and mites.
Rats also cause a lot of damage to property by chewing through pipes, cables, timber and even concrete. The damage to cables can create a serious fire risk.
Rat problems in Nottingham will almost certainly be caused by the Brown rat. Otherwise known as the Norway or sewer rat. These rats can breed at a tremendous rate with a litter of 8-10 young and 3-6 litters per year. A new born rat reaches sexual maturity at just 2-3 months of age. So; as you can see, it’s imperative to deal with a rat problem at the earliest opportunity.
Rats will gnaw on pretty much anything. That’s because their teeth never stop growing so they will chew on anything hard to wear them down.
Rat droppings are very distinct from mouse droppings. Whereas mouse droppings are very small (like grains of rice), a rat dropping will be ¼ to ¾ of an inch in length.
