Rat Poisons

What some may consider a horrible way to eradicate rat infestations is by laying poison. This is implemented by carefully positioning a bait laced with poison, that is subsequently ingested by a rat resulting in death within a few days. A considerable population of rats can be eliminated with this strategy as long as the poison bait is placed properly. The toxic compounds that are widely-used in making rat poisons include: bromadioline, brodifacoum or difenacoum. Dogs and cats can also be harmed as a result of rat poisons, so use caution. Rat poison brands available in Adwick-le-Street include the likes of: Pest Expert, Roshield, Propest, Rentokil, Elixir Gardens and RatKil.


A thing that rats love to do is burrow, and their favourite place to dig is at the side of solid objects or structures such as garden shed bases, terraces, walkways and garages. These are not just simple holes, but rather extensive systems of burrows, made to provide shelter, food storage and a nesting place. Watch out for holes having smooth sides, which have been polished by the frequent comings and goings of these busy animals. If you discover holes but are not positive that they're rats, they will usually be around two to four inches across. You can check if rats are still living there by temporarily blocking the entrance to find out whether they come back and clear it away.

Types of Rat

You are only going to encounter two breeds of rat in Adwick-le-Street or anyplace in Britain. The Black Rat (Rattus Rattus) and the Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus).

The Brown Rat

In Adwick-le-Street, the rest of the UK and Europe the most widespread species of rat is the brown rat (street rat, common rat, sewer rat or Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)), this is the kind you are likely to discover in your home or garden. The coloration of this species ranges between grey and brown, it typically grows to about 4-9 inches (plus a similar length tail) and has a weight of between 140 and 500g. While once considered to have spread from Norway (hence its name), it's now known to have come from China. Brown rats are omniverous (eat practically anything) though they favour grain cereals, they have good hearing but poor eyesight, the females reach sexual maturity in five weeks and can have 5 litters per year (with up to 14 in each), they climb effectively and dig extensive burrows.

The Black Rat (Ship Rat)

The black rat, ship rat or roof rat is also not a native of Britain, originating from Southeast Asia (most likely India). Quite likely traveling in shipments of spices at the height of the Roman Empire, the black rat consequently spread throughout Continental Europe. Pretty scarce now in Great Britain, this rat was for the most part ousted by the more dominant brown rat. The black rat attains a length of 5" to 7" and usually weighs 75g to 230g. Well known for causing typhus, trichinosis, listeria, bubonic plague, salmonella, tularemia, Weil's disease, rat bite fever and toxoplasmosis, black rats are notorious spreaders of disease and pathogens.
