Species of Rat

There are only two types of rat that you could run into in Bulkington, Warwickshire or anywhere else in the UK for that matter. The Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus) and the Black Rat (Rattus Rattus).

The Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)

The brown rat (common rat, street rat, Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus) or sewer rat) is the most frequently found rat in Great Britain and across Europe (also North America). The colour of this rat ranges between brown and grey, it grows to around 4 to 9 inches (plus a similar length tail) and has a weight range of between 140 and 500 grammes. Now understood to have originally come from Central Asia (almost certainly China), it was once believed to have arrived from Norway (hence the name Rattus Norvegicus). Brown rats have good hearing but poor eyesight, they climb effectively and dig extensively, they are omnivores but favour cereals, the female rats often give birth to 5 litters of as many as 14 pups per year.

The Black Rat (Ship Rat)

The black rat, (Rattus Rattus) roof rat or ship rat is also not native to Great Britain, originating from India. It's regarded as having spread throughout Europe at the time of the Roman Empire, possibly traveling in shipments of spices. The black rat was once prevalent in the United Kingdom but was basically ousted by the larger brown rat and is now not often found. The black rat attains a length of 5-7 inches and weights of 75-230g. Notorious for causing diseases black rats are often the cause of tularemia, toxoplasmosis, typhus, rat bite fever, Weil's disease, salmonella, bubonic plague, listeria and trichinosis.

Problems With Mice

Although not quite as uncomfortable as uncovering rats in your garden or house, having mice can be just as much of a problem. While not as large, mice will still gnaw at stuff, contaminate food, breed quickly and leave droppings. The same strategies are usually used to solve mouse problems in Bulkington, basically poisoning and setting traps are preferred.

Something that rats love to do is dig burrows, and their favourite area to do it is next to solid objects or structures such as garden shed bases, terraces, garage foundations and pathways. These are often not straightforward holes, but extensive systems of burrows, created to provide nesting places, food storage and shelter. A guaranteed sign of a rat burrow is often a hole with smooth sides near to a solid surface, where the motion of hairy creatures have rubbed and polished the entrance. If you discover holes but are not certain if they are made by rats, they will typically be approximately 2-4 inches in diameter. Toss some debris into the burrow entrance and check back the next day to see if it has been cleared. This will show you if rats are still present.

Rat Prevention Bulkington

The easiest way to avoid problems with rodents is to discourage them to begin with. For this reason, deterring rats must be something to consider even when you do not presently have a rat problem. Domestic waste cluttering up the garden is amongst the main factors that cause rat infestations. Giving both the location and materials for nests will achieve nothing but attract them. If there is also a lot of food available these rats think they're in paradise, so be aware that traditional bird seed feeders attract rats, in particular when they are susceptible to spilling over, and household food scraps should never be left lying around.
