Rat in the chimney

Rat Control Wirral, Chester and Ellesmere Port

A late call out came in for a rat that had been seen running back into a kitchen. I started the inspection in the kitchen. Removal of the kitchen units sills reveled rat tracks and tail swipes in the dust. No droppings were found.

The customer also reported that there had been noises in the walls in their daughters room. Looking round the room I found an orange behind a bedside table that had been chewed. The rat had accessed the room from the fireplace. A hole in the top corner had been widened by the rat. The rat had used the chimney flue to climb to the unused fire and into the room.


 

An inspection of the roof void reveled droppings and nesting material. The rat had climbed down the chimney flue from its nesting place in the roof space to eat the orange. It has been using the internal spaces of the house to move about relatively unnoticed.


Baits have been left under the kitchen units, in the roof void, in the bathroom cupboards and in external areas to control the rats. A follow up will be carried out.

29th December 2012

The couple had been seeing the mouse run out of the hall way and in to the lounge late at night. A few droppings were found in the hall way. A gap by the radiator looked to be the mouses entry point from the fabric of the house into the living spaces. Mouse droppings were quickly found under floorboards. Baits have been left in multiple places including under the floors to control the mouse problem.
 

 
The droppings can be seen in the photo above. The photo below shows how under floor areas often look. The shavings are from when the joiners put the floors in. They make an ideal start for mouse nesting. Mice will use many materials for nests. They can include tissues, gloves or any other soft materials.

Whilst up in a roof void I noticed a previously treated wasp nest. You can see where the lance entered the nest to apply the insecticide.

Also you can see the rather apt Christmas decoration (...and no it wasn't a plant!!).

Happy Christmas everyone.

This photo shows mouse smear marks running over the metal bar. The smears are made from grease and dirt on the mouses fur.


This photo was taken in a roof void. The hole in the block leads into a cavity wall. It shows the mice use both the cavity wall and the roof space. In this particular call a mouse nest was removed from under the insulation in the roof space.

Rat takes roof space

21st December

Rat takes in a roof space yesterday. The baits were left out over 2 weeks ago after the customer had heard noises in the roof. An inspection reveled both rat and mouse droppings. The noises had ceased after 7 days of the bait being laid up there. The bait is a chronic poison so works over a few days.

Dead mouse and flea
12/19/2012 3:52:55 PM
19th December 2012

A call out for flies in a living room. The customer had walked into his lounge to find 20 flies bouncing off the windows. The flies were bluebottles indicating that something had died in the house. Bluebottles are attracted to dead animals to lay their eggs. The eggs then hatch and become maggots that consume the dead animal. After the maggots have eaten their fill they crawl off to pupate. They then hatch and become adult flies. It is this stage that people often become aware of the problem.

A quick look around the living room indicated that the problem would be under the floor. After pulling back the carpet and unscrewing an inspection hatch in the next room a dead mouse was found. Luckily it had died just under the hatch. 


It was fully eaten. Flies were walking around in the void. A couple flying up when the hatch was opened.


On close inspection of the mouse before it was picked up I noticed a flea crawling on it. I managed to catch it on a sticky insect pad to get a photo. Its a good reminder to always wear gloves and tie disposal bags tightly when handling dead animals. It also shows a suprisingly common way a house can become infested with fleas.

The underfloor void was fumigated to rid the customer of the flies and fleas. Proofing the house against further mouse ingress is the next step.
