If you discover rats in Gloucester, the chances are that they are going to be brown rats, though there are in fact two species of rat currently found in the United Kingdom; black (ship) rats and brown (or common) rats. As you may be aware ship rats were responsible for the spread of the Great Plague (17th C) at which time they were quite widespread. Black rats are quite rare now and in fact neither type is native to the United Kingdom, both arriving from Asia.

The brown rat is larger than the black rat weighing in at 500g and reaching lengths of almost 9". To stop their incisor teeth from growing too long, brown rats need to keep on gnawing at stuff, which is the reason they cause so much damage and destruction. Their interest is oftentimes concentrated on stuff that is made out of timber.

Rats leave droppings, gnaw through woodwork, insulation, pipes and wires, spread diseases, and are typically troublesome in businesses and households throughout Gloucester. The local authorities must be informed when there are any sightings of rats. Or head HERE to report incidences of rats and pests on the .gov website online.

Checking for Rats: There are several ways by which you can find out if you've got rats. When you've got an idea that there might be rats in your business or property you should listen out for constant scratching noises coming from walls and roofs, in particular during the night, try to find tail trails or footprints in dusty areas, watch out for rub marks on walls and skirting boards where greasy fur has left marks, look out for tunnels or burrows adjacent to solid surfaces, check for gnaw marks in wires, cables and wood, especially in attics, keep your eyes open for faeces (droppings), they look much like large grains of rice and are dark brown.

Burrows: A thing that all rats love to do is dig and burrow, and the location where they most like to burrow is next to and under solid objects or structures such as garages, patios, shed bases and paths. Rats excavate substantial burrow networks that provide them with shelter, nesting and food storage. Watch out for holes with smooth sides, which may have been polished by the frequent coming and going of these busy pests. The entrance holes to rat burrows are generally two to four inches across. Chuck some debris into the hole and look the following day to find out whether it's been shifted. This would tell you if the rats are still living there.
