Rat Bites

While, in the UK, rat bites aren't all that commonplace, they do happen from time to time, and the consequences can be serious in some situations. If you stumble upon a rat in a confined space, it could bite you if it is threatened or cornered, therefore leave it a clear exit route and try to avoid it.

Rat bites occasionally occur in properties where rats are kept as pets, and placing your hand inside a rat's cage is definitely a manoeuvre to be wary of. While rat bites aren't serious in every case, they must be avoided where possible, and can turn nasty or even fatal if they develop into "rat bite fever" (caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis). If it's not treated swiftly "rat bite fever" (RBF) has a 10% mortality rate.

Symptoms of Rat Bite Fever - "Rat bite fever" (streptobacillary RBF) can have various signs and symptoms, including:

  • Vomiting
  • Fever
  • Joint Pain
  • Swelling or Redness
  • Headaches
  • Rashes
  • Muscle Pain

If are bitten by a rat you should promptly wash the wound with warm water, apply an antibiotic cream, and cover it up with a clean gauze or bandage. Even if you don't believe that it is too severe, you should have it checked out at your nearest A&E, or book an appointment to see your GP or doctor. If it's more than 5 years since you received your last tetanus vaccine, you should get one of these done as well, as rat bites can become a cause of infection.

Types of Rat

In Bagshot, Surrey and throughout the British Isles, there are just two species of rat which you are ever likely to run into. The Black Rat and the Brown Rat.

The Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)

The most widespread rat seen in Britain, and also Europe, is the brown rat (common rat, Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus), sewer rat or street rat). This grey or brown coloured rodent reaches lengths of 4" to 9" (plus the tail) and weighs in at 140 to 500 grams. Nowadays understood to have originally come from Central Asia (probably China), the brown rat was once presumed to have spread from Norway. Brown rats climb well and dig extensively, they have bad eyesight but good hearing, the female rats can produce up to five litters every year, they feed on virtually anything (omnivores) but favour grains and cereals.

The Black Rat (Rattus Rattus)

The black rat, roof rat or ship rat (Rattus Rattus) is also not a native of the UK, originating in Southeast Asia (India). Understood to have been spread at the time of the Roman Empire, this rat quite possibly reached Continental Europe and Britain via spice shipments. Rather rare now in the UK, this rat was largely driven out by the more dominant brown rat. Reaching a length of 5-7 inches, the black rat weighs in at around 75g to 230g. Renowned for passing on pathogens and diseases black rats can be responsible for bubonic plague, trichinosis, salmonella, listeria, tularemia, Weil's disease, rat bite fever, typhus and toxoplasmosis.
