There are two sorts of rat that you may come across in Hedge End, brown (common) rats and black rats. It's fairly improbable that you will ever see black rats, and if you have spotted a rat recently it's likely to have been the more widespread brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (or ship rats) were common at one time and were blamed for the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they're pretty rare nowadays, though when they are seen they have an acute sense of hearing, are excellent climbers, and can give birth to between 20 and 100 baby rats in just one year.

The longest of the 2 rats is the common brown rat at approximately 9 inches, whilst the black rat (Rattus Rattus) only grows to between 5 and 7 inches. Much of the destruction caused by brown rats is down to the fact that to prevent their incisors from growing too long, they have to continually chew on things. Their gnawing is often focused on objects that's made from wood.

Rats can cause various problems in businesses and homes around Hedge End and they gnaw through pipes, insulation, woodwork and wires, transmit diseases, leave droppings, and are basically troublesome.

Checking for Rats: There are a number of ways by which you can tell if you have rats. If you have a notion that there might be rats in your business or property you can keep an eye out for droppings, they're dark brown in colour and look just like large grains of rice, listen closely for scratching noises coming from rooves and walls, particularly during the night, check for gnawing in wood, cables and wires, particularly in lofts, watch out for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on skirtings and walls, be on the lookout for burrows or tunnels alongside solid surfaces, hunt for footprints or tail trails on loose soil or in dusty areas.

Burrowing: Burrowing and digging is one thing that rats really like to do and it's next to solid objects or structures such as patios, pathways, garage foundations and shed bases where they predominantly prefer to dig. They dig out extensive burrow networks that are useful for nesting, shelter and food storage. Look out for holes having smooth edges, which have been rubbed by the steady ins and outs of these busy animals. The entrances to rat burrows are commonly two to four inches in diameter. It's possible to find out if rats are still in situ by temporarily blocking the burrow entrance to find out whether they return and clear it away.
