The black rat at 5 to 7" long, is a little smaller than the brown variety, which grows to lengths of up to about 9" and weighs in at close to half a kilo. Most of the damage and destruction attributable to brown rats is due to the fact that to keep their teeth from growing too much, they've got to continually gnaw on things. Their interest is frequently focused on objects made of wood.

Rats gnaw through insulation, pipes, woodwork and wires, leave droppings, transmit disease, and are typically problematic in businesses and homes in Alsager. The local council needs to be advised whenever rats are causing problems. In addition you can report a rat problem on the .gov website online HERE.

Checking for Rats: If you've got an inkling that you might have rats in your home or business, there are several means by which you'll be able to find out. You could listen closely for constant scratching noises emanating from walls and lofts, in particular during the night, look out for tunnels or burrows adjacent to solid objects, check for gnaw marks in cables, wood and wires, particularly in lofts, keep your eyes open for faeces (droppings), they're dark brown in colour and look like large grains of rice, watch out for rub marks on walls and skirting boards where greasy fur has left marks, search for signs of footprints or tail trails in dusty areas or on loose soil.

Rat Burrows: When you have rats appearing in the garden, the chances are that there'll be a burrow. Rats like to burrow and they normally excavate them next to solid structures and objects like patios, shed bases, garage foundations and paths. These are the places to check if you think you have rats nearby. These are not just simple holes, but rather substantial networks of burrows, made to use as food storage, nesting places and shelter. The entrances to rat burrows tend to be worn smooth by the constant motion, so keep an eye out for smooth sided holes adjacent to solid structures. The entrance holes to rat burrows are normally two to four inches across. You can check if rats are using it by temporarily blocking the entrance hole to see if they return and clear it away.
