If you notice rats in Canvey Island, the chances are that they are going to be common brown rats, even though there are in fact two breeds of rat currently found in the UK; black (or ship) rats and brown (or common) rats. As you might be aware ship rats were blamed for the Great Plague (17th C) during which period they were extremely widespread. Black rats are relatively scarce now and in fact neither species is native to the British Isles, both of them hailing from from Asia.

The longest of the two rat varieties is the common brown rat at around nine inches, whilst the black rat (Rattus Rattus) only measures 5 to 7 inches. To stop their incisor teeth from growing too long, common brown rats must keep on gnawing at stuff, which explains why they cause such a lot of damage. Their gnawing is often concentrated on things that's made out of wood.

Rats may cause various kinds of problems in homes and businesses throughout Canvey Island and they transmit diseases, leave behind droppings, gnaw their way through woodwork, insulation, pipes and wires, and are basically troublesome. Property holders should report incidences of rats to their relevant local authority. Additionally you can report problems with rats on the .gov website online HERE.

Spotting Rats: If you have a notion that you may have rats in your business or home, there are a variety of ways by which it's possible to find out. You could be on the lookout for tunnels or burrows next to solid objects, hunt for footprints or tail trails on loose soil or in dusty areas, watch for rub marks on walls and skirtings where greasy fur has left marks, check for gnaw marks in cables, wood and wires, particularly in attics, keep an eye out for faeces (droppings), they're dark brown and look much like large grains of rice, listen closely for scratching noises emanating from walls and rooves, especially at nighttime.

Burrows: Burrowing and digging is a thing that all rats really like to do and it's next to solid objects or structures like garages, pathways, garden shed bases and terraces that they predominantly prefer to dig. They dig out extensive burrow networks which provide food storage, nesting places and shelter. Keep your eyes open for holes having smooth sides, that have been rubbed by the continual movement of these busy pests. The entrances to rat burrows are typically 2-4 inches in diameter. A great way to discover if rats currently using that particular burrow is to throw some stuff into the entrance hole and check if it has been cleared away the following day.

Rat Sightings - Reporting: We will go into it a bit more now, though this topic was outlined earlier on this page.
