Even though neither of the 2 kinds of rat currently found in the British Isles originate from these islands, they have clearly thrived since they arrived here. The brown rat is particularly widespread while the ship (black) rat isn't so much so these days. Both varieties originated from Asia and arrived in the United Kingdom on boats (as stowaways).

The longest of the two rat breeds is the common brown rat at approximately 9", whilst the black only measures 5-7 inches. To stop their teeth from getting too long, brown rats need to keep chewing stuff, which is why they're the cause of such a lot of damage and destruction. They especially prefer to gnaw at wood.

Rat infestations cause a variety of problems for business owners and householders throughout Fulwood, they transmit disease, gnaw their way through wires, pipes, insulation and woodwork, leave behind droppings, and get up to all sorts of mischief. Householders must report sightings of rats to the local authority. Also you can report sightings of rats and other pests on the .gov web page HERE.

Rat Prevention Fulwood: Discouraging rats and mice before they even become a nuisance is certainly an effective way of avoiding such problems. Subsequently, deterring rodents will be something to keep in mind even when you do not have problems with rats at the moment. Domestic waste laying around the garden is accepted as one of the major factors behind rat and mouse infestations. Giving both the place and materials for nests will do little but encourage them. Furthermore, you should avoid providing them with easily accessible food by leaving domestic waste food around the garden and putting bird feeders out with grain that will only encourage rats.

Rat Traps:Rat Traps Rat traps are among the most effective ways to deal with a rat infestation, no matter if you are tackling it by yourself or bringing a professional in. You will discover different sorts of rat traps nowadays, some which actually exterminate the rats and others that imprison the rat for later release. The capture type are the best alternative for individuals who detest to see animals being hurt in any way whatsoever, even pests. If you have a look around you will get plenty of varying designs such as: electronic rat traps, enclosed poison traps, spring loaded bait traps and cage traps.

Rat Poisons: Using poison is one of the more unpleasant methods by which to eliminate rats. This is implemented by leaving a poisoned bait, which is subsequently swallowed by a rat causing its death a few days later. When placed in a suitable location within a rat infested area, the poison can pretty quickly kill a large number of rats. One or more of 3 primary ingredients which are used in rat poisons are: difenacoum, bromadioline or brodifacoum. Pets could also be killed by eating such rat poisons, so use caution. Rat poison brands available in the British Isles include: Elixir Gardens, Rentokil, Roshield, RatKil, Pest Expert and Propest.

Types of Rat

There are only 2 kinds of rat which you're likely to come across in Fulwood or any place else in the British Isles for that matter. The Brown Rat and the Black Rat.

The Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus):

The most prevalent rat seen in the British Isles, and also in Europe and North America, is the brown rat (sewer rat, Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus), common rat or street rat). This brown or grey coloured rat grows to lengths of 4" to 9" (plus the tail) and weight about 140 to 500g. While at one time believed to have spread from Norway (hence its name), this rat is now understood to have initially come from China/Central Asia. Brown rats have good hearing but bad eyesight, they burrow a lot and climb effectively, they are omnivores but favour cereals, the female rats often give birth to five litters of up to 14 every year.

The Black Rat (Ship Rat):

Also not a native species of Britain, the black rat, roof rat or ship rat originally came to Europe from Southeast Asia (India). Quite likely traveling in shipments of spices at the height of the Roman Empire, the black rat consequently spread through Continental Europe. Once common in the UK, the black rat largely disappeared as the brown rat became dominant. The black rat grows to a length of five to seven inches and weights of 75 to 230 grams. Notorious for spreading pathogens and diseases black rats can be accountable for Weil's disease, trichinosis, bubonic plague, salmonella, listeria, typhus and toxoplasmosis.

Signs of Rats: When you've got suspicions that you might have rats in your property or business, there are several ways in which you're able to tell. You could check for gnawing in wood, wires and cables, especially in lofts, look out for tunnels or burrows next to solid surfaces, hunt for tail trails or footprints on loose soil or in dusty areas, listen for scratching noises coming from walls and attics, especially during the night, keep your eyes open for droppings, they look like large grains of rice and are dark brown, watch out for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on skirting boards and walls.

Rat Burrows: When you have rats appearing in your garden, the probability is that there will be a burrow. Rats like to dig and burrow and they often excavate them beside solid structures and objects like paths, patios, shed bases and garage foundations. These are the spots to check if you think you have rats nearby. Rats dig out substantial burrow networks which are useful for food storage, a nesting place and shelter. A guaranteed sign of a rat burrow is a smooth sided hole adjacent to a solid structure, where the comings and goings of furry animals have polished and rubbed the entrance. If you notice holes but are not sure if they are rats, they'll normally be about 2" to 4" in diameter. Throw some debris into the burrow and check the following day to find out if it's been moved. This should tell you if the rats are still living there.
