There are actually 2 types of rat that you may come across in Tewkesbury, black rats and brown (or common) rats. It is fairly improbable that you will ever come across black rats, and if you have stumbled upon a rat recently chances are it'll have been the more common brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (also known as ship rats) were once common and were responsible for the spread of the Great Plague, they are quite rare now, though where they do occur they have an acute sense of hearing, are excellent climbers, and the females can produce between 20 and 100 baby rats in a single year.

The brown rat is normally bigger than the black rat (Rattus Rattus) and may weigh nearly half a kilogram, with a length of approximately 9 inches. Brown rats can cause damage as they need to constantly gnaw at stuff to prevent their teeth from getting too long. Their attention is oftentimes concentrated on stuff made from wood.

An infestation of rats can cause lots of different problems for home or business owners in Tewkesbury, they'll leave droppings, spread diseases, gnaw their way through insulation, wires, woodwork and pipes, and get up to all sorts of mischief. Householders need to report sightings of rats to the local authority. Or click HERE to report sightings of rats and other pest problems on the .gov website online.

Molecatchers in Tewkesbury: Tewkesbury rat catchers are also sometimes brought in to deal with another problem, namely moles. By no means such detested creatures, moles bring about completely different problems to rats. The chief trouble with moles is that they cause damage to your garden, especially lawns. Neatly mowed lawns spoiled by ugly piles of freshly dug dirt are sure signs of activity by moles. The favoured and humane solution to remove moles is by using traps.

Signs of Rats: There are various ways by which you can tell if you've got rats. If you have a notion that there may be rats in your home or business you can try to find signs of tail trails or footprints in dusty areas, keep an eye out for rat droppings, they're dark brown in colour and look just like large grains of rice, watch out for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on skirtings and walls, listen for scratching noises emanating from attics and walls, particularly at nighttime, pay attention to gnaw marks in wood, cables and wires, particularly in attics, look out for tunnels or burrows close to solid surfaces.

Rat Burrows: Burrowing is something that all rats love to do and it is near to solid objects or structures like garden sheds, garages, terraces and pathways that they particularly prefer to dig. These are not just simple holes, but rather substantial networks of burrows, built to provide nesting places, shelter and food storage. Watch out for holes having smooth edges, that have been rubbed by the frequent motion of these busy little creatures. Normally 2" to 4" across, entrances to burrows are not difficult to identify. Chuck some stuff into the entrance and check back the next day to see if it has been cleared. This can clarify if rats are still present.
