Kinds of Rat

There are 2 kinds of rat that it's possible to encounter in Syston or in fact anywhere else in the British Isles. They are the Black Rat and the Brown Rat.

The Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)

The brown rat (Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus), street rat, common rat or sewer rat) is the most frequently seen rat in Great Britain and throughout Europe (also North America). The colour of this rodent of the family Muridae ranges between grey and brown, it grows to around 4" to 9" (with an equivalent length tail) and has a weight range of between 140 and 500g. Now understood to have originated in Central Asia (most likely China), this rat was once deemed to have spread from Norway. Brown rats have poor eyesight but excellent hearing, they climb effectively and dig burrows, they're omnivores but prefer cereals and grains, the females often reproduce five litters of as many as 14 a year.

The Black Rat (Rattus Rattus)

Originating in Southeast Asia (probably India) the black rat, (Rattus Rattus), roof rat or ship rat is also not a native species of the UK or Europe. Understood to have been spread when the Roman Empire still existed, this rat almost certainly reached Europe and the UK in cargoes of spices. Quite uncommon now in the UK, the black rat was for the most part ousted by the more dominant brown rat. Weighing only 75-230g, the black rat grows to a length of 5" to 7". Known to cause salmonella, trichinosis, toxoplasmosis, typhus, tularemia, listeria, bubonic plague, rat bite fever and Weil's disease, black rats are prolific spreaders of disease and pathogens.

Rat Bites

Although, in the United Kingdom, bites from rats are not all that common, they do occur periodically, and the effects can be serious in some circumstances. Rats can bite humans if they feel threatened or cornered, therefore in confined spaces it is advisable to stay out of their way, and leave them an easy exit route.

Quite a few incidences of rat bites arise when rats are kept as pets (really?), and sticking your hand inside a rat's cage could be something of a risk. Even though they are not always serious, rat bites can turn nasty or even fatal if they develop into "rat bite fever" (caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis), so they must be avoided if possible. "Rat bite fever" (RBF), if it is left without treatment, can lead to death in 10% of cases.

Signs of Rat Bite Fever - Among the symptoms of "rat bite fever" are:

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

If you get bitten by a rat you should wash the affected area promptly, apply an antibiotic cream, and cover it with a clean plaster or bandage. You need to make an appointment to see your GP, or head to the closest A&E unit, even if you feel it isn't that serious. If you haven't received a tetanus jab in the last five years or so, you should also get one of these too.

Have You Got Rats?

When you've got an idea that you could have rats in your home or business, there are various ways in which you could tell. You can watch out for rub marks on walls and skirting boards where greasy fur has left marks, pay attention to gnaw marks in wires, wood and cables, particularly in attics, hunt for footprints or tail trails in dusty areas, look out for tunnels or burrows near to solid objects, listen closely for continual scratching noises emanating from walls and lofts, in particular during the night, keep your eyes peeled for faeces, they look similar to large grains of rice and are darkish brown.
