Kinds of Rat

There are actually 2 sorts of rat which you're likely to come across in Crowland, Lincolnshire or any place else in the British Isles for that matter. They're the Black Rat and the Brown Rat.

The Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)

The most widespread rat present in the UK, and also in Europe, is the brown rat (street rat, Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus), common rat or sewer rat). The coloration of this rodent varies between brown and grey, it grows to around 4-9" (with a similar length tail) and has a weight range of between 140 and 500 grams. Now thought to have originated in Central Asia (probably China), it was once believed to have spread from Norway (hence its name). Brown rats are omniverous (eat any foodstuffs) although their favourite is cereals, they have bad eyesight but excellent hearing, the female rats reach sexual maturity in only 5 weeks and may have 5 litters every year (with up to 14 young in each litter), they climb effectively and dig extensive burrows.

The Black Rat

The black rat, (Rattus Rattus) roof rat or ship rat is also not a native of Britain, originating from Southeast Asia (probably India). It is thought to have spread throughout Europe during the time of the Roman Empire, quite likely hidden in shipments of spices. At one time a common sight in the United Kingdom, the black rat essentially disappeared when the brown rat became dominant. Growing to a length of five to seven inches, this rat weighs in at only 75-230 grammes. Black rats have a reputation for spreading many different diseases, notably tularemia, trichinosis, salmonella, typhus, toxoplasmosis, listeria, rat bite fever, Weil's disease and bubonic plague.

What Attracts Rats?

Irrespective of their outwardly cute appearance, with their pointy faces, fur covered bodies and twitching whiskers, rats and mice can be dangerous and are not animals that you want to be making a home in your house or garden in Crowland. Mice and rats can cause damage to your home by gnawing through electric wiring, plasterboard, plastic and skirting boards, and are regularly the cause of fires and other problems. Spreading the likes of tularemia, trichinosis, salmonella, typhus, toxoplasmosis, listeria, rat bite fever, Weil's disease and bubonic plague, mice and rats can cause over 30 different kinds of disease. So, the main things that will attract mice and rats to your garden or home are:

  • RUBBISH/TRASH - An accumulation of junk and garden waste heaped up on your property (especially in the garden) will certainly attract rats and mice.
  • CLUTTER - General jumble and clutter in an outbuilding, cellar or attic will be especially attractive to mice and rats, especially if there is a food source close by.
  • ENTRY POINTS AND HOLES - Rats and mice can crawl through the smallest of holes and cracks, so be on the lookout for gaps around crawl spaces, roof vents, entrances and piping.
  • FOOD - Food left discarded or lying around is one of the principal attractions for rats and mice.
  • WATER - Rats and mice need to drink like any other creature, therefore water sources like dripping sprinkler systems, birdbaths, leaky pipes and pet bowls are a big attraction for these unwelcome pests.
  • PET WASTE/COMPOST - Surprisingly heaps of compost and even pet waste can be attractive to rodents - they will find plenty of tasty titbits hiding in there!
