There are actually 2 sorts of rat which you might run into in Crewe, black rats and brown (common) rats. It is fairly unlikely that you will ever see a black rat, and if you have encountered a rat fairly recently it is likely to have been the more commonplace brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were common at one time and were the cause of the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they're pretty rare now, although where they are seen they're exceptional climbers, have an acute sense of hearing, and the females can produce between 20 and 100 baby rats each year.

Brown rats are larger than black rats weighing in at half a kilogram and reaching a length of approximately nine inches. A lot of the damage caused by brown rats is due to the fact that to prevent their incisor teeth from growing too long, they've got to constantly gnaw stuff. Their attention is often concentrated on objects made from timber.

Rats transmit diseases, leave behind droppings, gnaw their way through woodwork, insulation, pipes and wires, and will generally cause problems in homes and businesses throughout Crewe. The local authorities should really be advised whenever rats are seen. It is possible to report rat and pest sightings on the .gov web page HERE.
