Pest Control Quotes

There are actually two sorts of rat which you might spot in Armthorpe, brown (common) rats and black rats. It is quite improbable that you will ever come across black rats, and if you have spotted a rat just recently the chances are it'll have been one of the more commonplace brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (or ship rats) were at one time common and were to blame for the spread of the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they are rather rare nowadays, but where they do occur they're amazing climbers, have an acute sense of hearing, and the females can give birth to between 20 and 100 offspring in just one year.

Rats particularly prefer to gnaw on timber.

Species of Rat

In Armthorpe, South Yorkshire and throughout Britain, there are only 2 kinds of rat that you're going to come across. The Black Rat and the Brown Rat.

The Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)

In Armthorpe, the remainder of the United Kingdom and Continental Europe the most common type of rat is the brown rat (common rat, sewer rat, street rat or Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)), this is what you are most likely to see in your garden or house. The colour of this rodent of the family Muridae ranges between grey and brown, it generally grows to approximately 4-9" (with an equivalent length of tail) with a weight of between 140 and 500 grammes. Now understood to have originated in Central Asia, this rat was at one time assumed to have come from Norway (hence the name Rattus Norvegicus). Brown rats have bad eyesight but excellent hearing, they dig a lot and climb effectively, they're omnivores but have a preference for cereals, the females can reproduce five litters of up to Fourteen each year.

The Black Rat (Ship Rat)

Originating in Southeast Asia (India) the black rat, ship rat or roof rat is also not a native species of Britain or Europe. It is regarded as having spread throughout Europe during the time of the Roman Empire, possibly hidden in shipments of spices. Quite rare now in the United Kingdom, the black rat was largely ousted by the more dominant brown rat. Growing to lengths of 5" to 7", the black rat weighs in at only 75-230g. Well known for passing on salmonella, rat bite fever, bubonic plague, listeria, tularemia, toxoplasmosis, Weil's disease, trichinosis and typhus, black rats are prolific spreaders of pathogens and disease.
