There are 2 kinds of rat which you may run into in Winterton, black rats and brown (or common) rats. It is quite improbable that you will ever come across black rats, and if you've spotted a rat recently it's likely to have been one of the more commonplace brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were once common and were the cause of the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they are pretty scarce nowadays, though when they are found they've got an acute sense of hearing, are amazing climbers, and the females can produce between 20 and 100 offspring each year.

Perhaps you could hear scratching coming from a floor, wall or loft, you could spot rat holes gnawed in floorboards or skirting boards, you could stumble upon a rat's nest hidden away or you could start seeing droppings on floor surfaces or in cupboards.

To manage this situation there are two or three routes that you might consider. You could put traps or poison down yourself, you could get in touch with your local Winterton council or you could locate a rat catcher or pest removal specialist.

Types of Rat

You'll only ever run across two species of rat in Winterton, Lincolnshire and throughout the United Kingdom. The Black Rat and the Brown Rat.

The Brown Rat

The most prevalent species of rat seen in the United Kingdom, and also Europe and North America, is the brown rat (sewer rat, street rat, Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus) or common rat). The coloration of this rodent ranges between brown and grey, it grows to approximately 4-9 inches (and an equivalent length of tail) with a weight of between 140 and 500 grammes. Although once believed to have originated from Norway, it is now understood to have come from China or at least Central Asia. Brown rats are omniverous (eat just about anything) though their favourite foods are grain cereals, they've got excellent hearing but bad eyesight, the females attain sexual maturity in five weeks and may produce 5 litters every year (with up to 14 in each), they climb effectively and dig extensively.

The Black Rat

The black rat, ship rat or roof rat (Rattus Rattus) is also not native to Great Britain, originally coming from India. Thought to have spread during the Roman Empire, this rat probably reached Continental Europe and Britain via shipments of spice. At one time a common sight in the UK, the black rat largely disappeared when the brown rat took over. Weighing in at just 75-230g, the black rat grows to a length of 5" to 7". Black rats have a reputation for spreading many diseases, in particular typhus, salmonella, bubonic plague, toxoplasmosis, tularemia, Weil's disease, trichinosis, rat bite fever and listeria.

What Attracts Mice and Rats?

Though some people in Winterton might consider them rather cute with their twitchy whiskers, furry bodies and pointy faces, rats and mice are certainly not animals that you want living in your house or garden, and can even be dangerous. Mice and rats are known to cause fires and other problems around the home by chewing through electrical cables, insulation materials, plastic and wood. Between them mice and rats can spread over thirty types of diseases including things like typhus, salmonella, bubonic plague, toxoplasmosis, tularemia, Weil's disease, trichinosis, rat bite fever and listeria. Among the different things that will certainly attract mice and rats to your home or garden are:

  • CLUTTER - General clutter and jumble in an outbuilding, cellar or loft space will be particularly attractive to rats and mice, especially if there's a food source nearby.
  • FOOD - Food that's left lying around or discarded is perhaps the main attraction for mice and rats.
  • WATER - Busy little rodents need to drink, so water sources like seeping sprinkler systems, birdbaths, leaking pipes and pet bowls are a big enticement for these unwelcome pests.
  • PET WASTE/COMPOST - Surprisingly compost heaps and even pet waste can be attractive to rodents - there will be some tasty morsels hiding in there!
  • HOLES AND ENTRY POINTS - Rats and mice can squeeze through the smallest of cracks and holes, so watch out for gaps around doors, crawl spaces, vents and pipes.
  • TRASH/RUBBISH - Accumulations of junk and garden rubbish stacked up on your property (particularly in the garden) will attract mice and rats.
