Although neither of the 2 rat species presently living in Great Britain are native to these shores, they've definitely thrived since they arrived here. The brown rat is especially common whilst the ship (black) rat isn't so much so nowadays. Both of these types originated from Asia and got to the United Kingdom on ships.

The longest of the 2 rat species is the brown at approximately 9 inches, while the black only grows to between 5 and 7 inches. Most of the damage and destruction caused by brown rats is down to the fact that to prevent their teeth from growing too much, they must constantly gnaw on things. Their gnawing is often focused on items made from timber.

An infestation of rats lead to lots of different issues for home or business owners in and around Dereham, they'll transmit diseases, gnaw their way through woodwork, wires, pipes and insulation, leave droppings, and contaminate foodstuffs. The local council needs to be informed when there are repeated sightings of rats. Or go HERE to report sightings of rats and other pest problems on the .gov web page.

It isn't invariably by sight alone that you'll be alerted to the presence of rats, their behaviour is sometimes enough to give warning. It could be that you might hear noises coming from a floor, loft or wall, you may stumble upon a rat's nest in some tucked away location, you may notice droppings in cupboards or on the floor or you may come across distinctive rat holes gnawed in skirtings or floorboards.

Unless you wish to wait for the local authorities to manage this problem you could also contact a local Dereham rat catcher or pest controller who'll be qualified in the field of pest removal. There are not too many folks these days who specialise only in rat catching, so you can also give them a call if you have a wasps nest in your loft or even moles causing damage.

Rat Poison: One way to solve an infestation of rats is to lay down poison. Rats will die several days after eating a poison laced bait, normally wheat. The location of the poison bait is crucial and will likely be responsible for the success or failure of this process. Generally bromadioline, brodifacoum or difenacoum are among the poisons used. Pets can also be harmed by ingesting rat poisons, so take care. Well known brands of rat poison in the United Kingdom include: Roshield, Pest Expert, Propest, RatKil, Rentokil and Elixir Gardens.

Spotting Rats: If you have an inkling you could have rats in your business or home, there are various ways in which you'll be able to tell. You should watch out for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on skirting boards and walls, keep your eyes peeled for droppings, they're darkish brown and look much like large grains of rice, try to find signs of footprints or tail trails in dusty areas or on loose soil, check for gnaw marks in wires, cables and wood, especially in attics, listen closely for continual scratching noises coming from walls and rooves, in particular during the night, be on the lookout for holes or burrows alongside solid objects.

Burrowing: Burrowing and digging is something that rats really like to do and its beside solid structures and objects such as garage foundations, pathways, garden shed bases and patios where they especially like to dig. Providing them with food storage, shelter and nesting, burrows are dug into substantial systems which may even cause damage if allowed to continue unchecked. Keep your eyes peeled for holes having smooth sides, that have been polished by the constant coming and going of these busy creatures. When you spot holes but are not certain if they're rats, they'll commonly be 2" to 4" across. Chuck some debris into the entrance hole and check the following day to find out if it's been shifted. This would clarify if rats are still in there.

Reporting Rat Sightings

Here is a little more information on a subject that we brought up earlier. Should you see rats in your own garden, in a neighbours garden or in a public place it's a wise idea to inform the local authority Environmental Health Department.
