Digging and burrowing is something that all rats like to do and it is next to and under solid objects or structures like terraces, garage foundations, shed bases and paths where they particularly prefer to dig. These are often not simple holes, but rather extensive networks of burrows, created to provide nesting places, shelter and food storage. A sure sign of a rat burrow is a hole with smooth sides close to a solid structure, where the ins and outs of furry bodies have polished and rubbed the entrance. The entrances to rat burrows are commonly 2-4 inches across. You should check if rats are still there by temporarily filling up the entrance hole to find out whether they return and clear it away.

Rat Bites

While not all that commonplace in the UK, bites from rats do occur every once in a while, and in certain instances they can be dangerous. Without doubt, rats can bite humans when they feel cornered or pressured, so in confined spaces it is advisable to stay well out of their way, and leave them a clear exit route.

You'd think that folks would be cautious about pushing their hand inside a rat's cage, however as rats are frequently kept as pets, this is an increasing cause of rat bites. Rat bites are not necessarily dangerous, but must be avoided if possible, and they can turn nasty or even life threatening if they turn into "rat bite fever". If it is not treated appropriately "rat bite fever" (RBF) has a 10% mortality rate.

Symptoms of Rat Bite Fever - The symptoms and signs of "rat bite fever" can include:

  • Fever
  • Muscle Pain
  • Swelling or Redness
  • Joint Pain or Swelling
  • Headaches
  • Vomiting
  • Rashes

If you are ever bitten by a rat you should wash the affected area immediately, apply an antibiotic cream, and cover it with a clean bandage or plaster. You should head to your nearest A&E unit and get it looked at, even if you don't think that it is too bad, or at the very least make an appointment to see your GP or doctor. If you haven't received a tetanus jab in the last 5 years, you should also ask for of these.

Rats - Telltale Signs

When you've got an idea you might have rats in your property or business, there are a number of means by which it's possible to find out. You could look out for holes or burrows next to solid objects, listen for scratching noises coming from attics and walls, especially during the night, keep your eyes open for droppings (faeces), they're darkish brown and look much like large grains of rice, watch for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on walls and skirting boards, hunt for signs of tail trails or footprints in dusty areas, pay attention to gnawing in wood, cables and wires, particularly in lofts.

Species of Rat

In Rosyth or anywhere in the United Kingdom, there's just two species of rat that you are ever likely to run into. These are the Black Rat and the Brown Rat.

The Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)

The brown rat (street rat, common rat, sewer rat or Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)) is the most commonly found rat in the British Isles and throughout Continental Europe (also North America). The brown rat (it can often be grey in colour) is typically 4" to 9" long (without the tail) and weighs about 140 to 500 grams. It is invariably found wherever people are living. This rodent was named Rattus Norvegicus (Norway Rat) since it was assumed to have spread to Great Britain by boat from Norway. The brown rat is now considered to have originated from Central Asia/China. Brown rats have bad eyesight but excellent hearing, they dig a lot and climb effectively, they are omnivores but favour cereals and grains, the female rats can produce 5 litters of as many as 14 per year.

The Black Rat

The black rat, (Rattus Rattus), ship rat or roof rat is also not a native of the UK, originating in India and Southeast Asia. Very likely traveling in shipments of spices in the times of the Romans, the black rat then spread throughout Continental Europe. Quite uncommon nowadays in Great Britain, this rat was pretty much ousted by the larger brown (common) rat. Growing to lengths of five to seven inches, the black rat weighs only 75-230g. Black rats have a reputation for spreading many diseases, particularly tularemia, rat bite fever, bubonic plague, toxoplasmosis, salmonella, typhus, trichinosis, Weil's disease and listeria.

Rat Prevention Rosyth

An effective way to avoid issues with rats and mice is to discourage them to begin with. So, rat prevention will be a thing to consider even when you do not have a rat problem presently. Domestic trash cluttering up your garden is one of the main reasons behind rat and rodent infestations. Supplying both the materials and place for a nest will achieve little but encourage them. If there's also plenty of food available those rats will be in heaven, so be wary that bird seed feeders attract rats, especially when they are prone to spilling over, and domestic food waste should not be left lying around.
