There are actually 2 types of rat which you may spot in Keyworth, black rats and common (brown) rats. It's relatively improbable that you'll ever see black rats, and if you have spotted a rat recently it is likely to have been one of the more common brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were once common and were responsible for the spread of the Great Plague, they are relatively rare nowadays, though where they do exist they've got good hearing, are exceptional climbers, and the females can give birth to between twenty and one hundred offspring every 12 months.

Checking for Rats

There are numerous ways that you can tell when you have rats. When you have a notion that there might be rats in your home or business you can look out for holes or burrows next to solid objects, keep an eye out for droppings (faeces), they look much like large grains of rice and are dark brown in colour, check for gnaw marks in cables, wires and wood, especially in lofts, listen closely for scratching noises emanating from lofts and walls, in particular at nighttime, watch for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on skirting boards and walls, hunt for tail trails or footprints in dusty areas.

Rat Bites

Whilst bites from rats aren't that commonplace in the British Isles, they certainly do occur on occasion and they can be dangerous in certain circumstances. Without doubt, rats can bite humans if they feel threatened or cornered, therefore in a confined space it's best to stay well out of their way, and leave them a clear exit route.

You would think that people would be wary of placing their hand inside a rat's cage, yet as rats are frequently kept as pets, this is a rising cause of rat bites. While rat bites are not dangerous in every case, they should be avoided wherever possible, and can become infected or be fatal if they turn into "rat bite fever". "Rat bite fever" (RBF) can result in death, and has has a 10% mortality rate, if it is left untreated.

Signs of Rat Bite Fever - A number of symptoms can be experienced by someone with "rat bite fever" including:

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

In the unlikely event that you ever get a rat bite, you will have to bathe the wound, administer a coating of antibiotic ointment, and wrap it with a clean, sterile bandage or plaster. You should go to your nearest A&E department and get it looked at, even if you don't consider it to be that major, or at the very least schedule an appointment with your GP or doctor. Getting a tetanus vaccine is also recommended, in particular if it is more than 5 years since you've had one.

Rat Burrows

When you have rats appearing in your garden, the probability is that there will be a burrow. Rats like to burrow and they frequently excavate them at the side of solid objects or structures such as pathways, garages, terraces and shed bases. These are the spots to check out if you believe you have rats nesting there. They excavate extensive burrow networks that are useful for nesting places, food storage and shelter. Look out for holes having smooth edges, which may have been rubbed by the frequent motion of these busy critters. Commonly 2" to 4" across, entrances to rat burrows are quite easy to spot. Toss some debris into the burrow entrance and check back the next day to determine if it has been shifted. This would determine if rats are still using it.

Mouse Problems Keyworth

Mice may be equally as much of a problem as having rats, especially if they find their way inside your property. Just like rats, mice contaminate food, leave droppings, breed quickly, gnaw at stuff and are basically a pain. Also, as with rats, trapping and poisoning are the favourite strategies to solving mouse problems in Keyworth. Keyworth rat catchers can also help you with mouse infestations, so contact one or check out BARK and get the problem sorted.

Kinds of Rat

There are actually two sorts of rat that you could come across in Keyworth or in fact anywhere else in the United Kingdom. The Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus) and the Black Rat (Rattus Rattus).

The Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)

The commonest rat seen in the United Kingdom, and in fact the rest of Europe, is the brown rat (common rat, street rat, sewer rat or Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)). This brown or grey coloured creature grows to lengths of 4" to 9" (plus tail) and weighs in at 140 to 500g. Now thought to have originally come from Central Asia, the brown rat was once believed to have arrived from Norway (hence the name Norway Rat). Brown rats have an acute sense of hearing but bad eyesight, they climb well and dig a lot, they're omnivores but favour grains and cereals, the females often reproduce five litters of as many as 14 pups each year.

The Black Rat

The black rat, (Rattus Rattus), ship rat or roof rat is also not a native of the UK, originating from India and Southeast Asia. It is thought to have spread to Europe in Roman times, most likely hidden in spice shipments. Fairly uncommon nowadays in the British Isles, the black rat was pretty much replaced by the more dominant brown (common) rat. The black rat grows to a length of five to seven inches and weights of 75g to 230g. Well known for causing rat bite fever, typhus, trichinosis, tularemia, Weil's disease, listeria, salmonella, toxoplasmosis and bubonic plague, black rats are prolific spreaders of disease and pathogens.

Rat Prevention Keyworth

Dissuading mice and rats before they even become a nuisance is certainly the most effective way to avoid such issues. So, rat prevention must be something to look at even though you do not have a rat problem at the moment. Among the major factors that cause rat and rodent infestations is household waste in gardens. Supplying them with both the materials and place to build nests will only attract them. Furthermore, refrain from providing easily accessible food by leaving household food waste lying around and putting out bird seed feeders with grain that will simply attract rats and mice.
