Black rats are quite scarce now and actually neither type is native to Great Britain, both of them hailing from from Asia.

The brown rat is larger than the black rat weighing in at 500g and reaching a length of nearly 9".

Their attention is usually focused on objects made of timber.

Signs of Rats: If you have an idea you may have rats in your property or business, there are various ways that you can find out. You can keep your eyes peeled for faeces, they're dark brown and look similar to large grains of rice, hunt for signs of footprints or tail trails on loose soil or in dusty areas, be on the lookout for burrows or holes next to solid objects, check for gnaw marks in wood, cables and wires, especially in attics, listen for scratching noises emanating from walls and rooves, particularly during the night, watch for rub marks on skirting boards and walls where greasy fur has left marks.

Rat Burrows: A thing that rats like to do is dig and burrow, and the area that they most like to dig is next to and beneath solid structures and objects such as shed bases, terraces, garage foundations and pathways. They excavate extensive burrow networks that provide them with shelter, food storage and nesting places. A certain indication of a rat burrow is usually a smooth sided hole adjacent to a solid surface, where the ins and outs of furry creatures have polished the entrance hole. The entrances to burrows are commonly 2" to 4" in diameter. You can find out if rats are still in situ by temporarily blocking the entrance to find out whether they return and clear it away.
