Though neither of the two rat species currently living in Great Britain are natives of these shores, they've unquestionably made themselves at home. The brown rat is particularly common (hence its name) while the black rat is not so much nowadays. Both breeds escaped from Asia and got to the British Isles as stowaways on boats.

The black rat at 5" to 7" long, isn't as large as the brown variety, which attains lengths of up to about 9" and weighs in at about half a kilogram. Brown rats often cause damage as they have to continually gnaw at stuff to stop their teeth from growing too long. Timber is especially susceptible to their interest.

Have You Got Rats?

If you've got an inkling you could have rats in your property or business, there are a variety of ways by which you can tell. You should listen for continual scratching noises coming from walls and rooves, in particular at night, watch for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on skirtings and walls, keep your eyes open for faeces, they look just like large grains of rice and are dark brown in colour, hunt for signs of tail trails or footprints in dusty areas or on loose soil, look out for burrows or tunnels next to solid surfaces, pay attention to gnawing in wires, cables and wood, particularly in attics.

Rat Burrows

If you have rats appearing in your garden, the chances are there is going to be a burrow somewhere. Rats like to burrow and they mostly dig them near to solid objects or structures such as terraces, garage foundations, shed bases and pathways. These are the best spots to look if you believe there are rats about. Providing nesting places, shelter and food storage, burrows are excavated into extensive systems which could even cause damage if they remain unchecked. Keep an eye out for holes having smooth sides, which have been rubbed by the frequent comings and goings of these busy little critters. If you spot holes but are not positive that they're rats, they will typically be 2" to 4" in diameter. You should check if rats are still about by partially blocking the entrance hole to determine if they return and remove it.
