The black rat (Rattus Rattus) at 5-7 inches, is a little smaller than the brown rat, which attains a length of almost 9 inches and weighs in at close to 500g. A great deal of the damage caused by brown rats is because to prevent their incisor teeth from growing too long, they must continuously chew on things. Rats particularly like to gnaw on timber.

Rats leave droppings, gnaw their way through woodwork, insulation, wires and pipes, spread disease, and are typically troublesome in businesses and homes in Cupar. Property holders need to report sightings of rats to the relevant local authorities. You might also report problems with rats on the .gov website online HERE.

Rat Bite Wounds

Although not all that common in the United Kingdom, rat bites do happen on occasion, and in some situations they can have serious consequences. Rats can bite humans when they feel threatened or cornered, so in confined spaces it's wise to stay well out of their way, or leave them a clear exit route.

Although they aren't necessarily dangerous, rat bites can turn nasty or even life threatening if they develop into "rat bite fever" (caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis), consequently they must be avoided where possible.

  • Muscle Pain
  • Rash
  • Vomiting
  • Redness or Swelling
  • Headache
  • Fever
  • Joint Pain or Swelling

Even if the bite doesn't appear to be that major, you ought to book an emergency appointment with your GP or head straight to the nearest hospital A&E. Getting a tetanus vaccine is also advisable, especially if it is more than 5 years since you've had one.

Signs of Rats

When you have an inkling that you could have rats in your property or business, there are several ways in which you'll be able to tell. You should pay attention to gnaw marks in wires, cables and wood, particularly in lofts, look out for tunnels or burrows close to solid objects, try to find tail trails or footprints in dusty areas or on loose soil, listen closely for constant scratching noises coming from walls and attics, in particular at night, keep your eyes open for droppings, they look like large grains of rice and are dark brown, watch out for rub marks on skirting boards and walls where greasy fur has left marks.


One thing that rats love to do is dig burrows, and the area that they particularly love to dig is adjacent to solid objects or structures such as patios, paths, garage foundations and garden shed bases. Providing shelter, nesting places and food storage, rat burrows are excavated into extensive systems that could even cause damage if not nipped in the bud. The entrances to burrows will often be worn smooth by frequent movement, so keep your eyes open for smooth sided holes alongside solid structures. When you discover holes but are not positive that they're rats, they will commonly be about two to four inches in diameter. An easy way to ascertain if rats are still living in that particular burrow is to throw a bit of stuff into the burrow and see if it's been cleared the next day.
