There are actually two types of rat which you may come across in Horndean, brown (common) rats and black rats. It is quite improbable that you will ever come across a black rat, and if you've seen a rat recently it's likely to have been the more widespread brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were at one time common and were responsible for the spread of the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they're rather rare now, although when they are seen they're superb climbers, have good hearing, and can produce between 20 and 100 offspring each year.

The black rat (Rattus Rattus) at 5 to 7 inches, is a bit smaller than the common brown rat, which reaches a length of nearly 9" and weighs around 500g. The majority of the damage caused by brown rats is due to the fact that to keep their incisor teeth from getting too much, they must continuously gnaw stuff. Their interest is often concentrated on things made from wood.

Do You Have Rats?: When you've got a notion that you might have rats in your business or home, there are a number of ways by which you'll be able to tell. You should hunt for footprints or tail trails on loose soil or in dusty areas, check for gnaw marks in wires, wood and cables, particularly in lofts, listen closely for scratching noises emanating from attics and walls, especially at nighttime, keep an eye out for droppings, they are dark brown and look much like large grains of rice, watch for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on walls and skirtings, look out for tunnels or burrows adjacent to solid surfaces.

Rat Burrows: Something that rats like to do is burrow and dig, and the place where they most like to burrow is at the side of solid objects or structures like patios, shed bases, walkways and garages. They dig out substantial burrow networks that provide a nesting place, shelter and food storage. The entrances to rat burrows tend to be worn smooth by the endless motion, so look out for holes with smooth sides close to solid surfaces. Should you discover holes but aren't sure if they are rats, they will typically be 2-4 inches in diameter. A simple way to ascertain if rats are still in that specific burrow is to throw some rubbish into the entrance and see if it's been cleared the next day.

Reporting Rat Sightings: We briefly talked about this subject earlier, so here I'll go into it a bit more. It is always a wise idea to inform the local environmental health if you notice rats in a neighbours garden, in your own garden or in a public place.
