Types of Rat

In Mossley or anywhere else in Great Britain, there are just 2 breeds of rat that you're likely to encounter. The Black Rat and the Brown Rat.

The Brown Rat

The most common type of rat found in Britain, and also in Europe and North America, is the brown rat (sewer rat, common rat, street rat or Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)). The coloration of this rodent ranges between brown and grey, it grows to about four to nine inches (with an equivalent length of tail) and has a weight of between 140 and 500 grams. Nowadays understood to have originally come from Central Asia (most likely China), this rat was at one time assumed to have spread from Norway. Brown rats dig extensive burrows and climb effectively, they have an acute sense of hearing but bad eyesight, the females can give birth to 5 litters a year, they'll eat virtually any foodstuffs (they are omnivores) but have a preference for grains and cereals.

The Black Rat (Ship Rat)

The black rat, roof rat or ship rat is also not native to Britain, originating from Southeast Asia (most likely India). It's regarded as having spread through Europe during the time of the Roman Empire, quite possibly hidden in cargoes of spice. At one time prevalent in the British Isles, this rat disappeared as the brown rat became dominant. This rat grows to a length of 5-7 inches a weight of 75-230 grammes. Known to pass on listeria, rat bite fever, tularemia, salmonella, toxoplasmosis, bubonic plague, Weil's disease, typhus and trichinosis, black rats are prolific spreaders of pathogens and disease.

A disorienting and uncomfortable environment is produced for pests by the sound waves, making it hard for them to communicate and navigate.

The efficacy of ultrasonic pest control gadgets is debatable, despite their affordability and ease of use. Studies have yielded mixed results regarding the effectiveness of these devices, with some demonstrating effective repelling of specific pests while others indicating little if any impact. Additionally, the effectiveness of ultrasonic pest control can vary depending on the size of the area being treated, the type of pest, and other environmental factors.
