Its quite improbable that you will ever see a black rat, and if you've seen a rat recently the chances are it'll have been one of the more commonplace brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were at one time common and were responsible for the spread of the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they are pretty rare now, although where they are seen they're terrific climbers, have good hearing, and the females can produce between twenty and one hundred baby rats every 12 months.

The longest of the two rat breeds is the brown at about 9", while the black rat only grows to between 5 and 7 inches. To prevent their teeth from getting too long, common brown rats need to keep on gnawing at things, which explains why they cause so much damage and destruction. Wood is particularly susceptible to this attention.

The local authority should be advised whenever rats are seen. You can also report sightings of rats and other pests on the .gov web page HERE.

Wiveliscombe Pest Control

You do not need to actually see rats to know of their existence, due to the fact that there are plenty of revealing signs which can alert you to their presence.

You could set traps or poison yourself, you could get in touch with your local Wiveliscombe environmental health department or you could track down a pest controller who specialises in rat removal.

Rat Poisons

Putting down poison is perhaps one of the more horrible ways to get rid of rat infestations. Wheat grains are coated using a poisonous chemical and left for rats to eat, it then takes them a few days to die. A large gathering of rats can soon be exterminated with this method as long as the poison bait is positioned properly. In general brodifacoum, bromadioline or difenacoum are among the poisons used. Be careful to keep these poisons out of reach of cats, dogs and other pets. Rat poison brands made in the United Kingdom include: Elixir Gardens, Roshield, Rentokil, RatKil, Propest and Pest Expert.

While a lot smaller, mice will still contaminate foodstuffs, breed rapidly, gnaw at things and leave droppings.

Signs of Rats

If you have a notion you might have rats in your business or property, there are several ways in which it's possible to tell. You can keep an eye out for faeces, they look similar to large grains of rice and are darkish brown, search for tail trails or footprints in dusty areas, watch for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on skirting boards and walls, be on the lookout for burrows or holes next to solid surfaces, pay attention to gnaw marks in cables, wood and wires, particularly in attics, listen for continual scratching noises emanating from walls and rooves, in particular at night.

Rat Bites

Even though they are by no means one of the most commonplace injuries sustained by people in the UK, every now and then bites from rats do occur, and the consequences can sometimes be serious. Without doubt, rats can bite humans if they feel cornered or pressured, therefore in confined spaces it is wise to stay well out of their way, or leave them an easy exit route.

Quite a few instances of rat bites come about where rats are being kept as pets (really?), and pushing your hand into a rat's cage is something of a risk. Even though rat bites are not serious in all instances, they must be avoided when possible, and can turn nasty or even fatal if they turn into "rat bite fever" (caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis). "Rat bite fever", if left untreated, can cause death, and has has a 10% mortality rate.

Symptoms of Rat Bite Fever (RBF) - Some of the symptoms of "rat bite fever" are:

  • A Rash
  • Swelling or Redness
  • Fever
  • Muscle Pain
  • Joint Pain
  • Vomiting
  • Headaches

You should promptly wash the affected area with warm water, if you get bitten by a rat, and apply an antibiotic cream to the bite area, and cover it with a clean bandage or gauze. Even if you don't consider that it's too severe, you must get it checked out at your closest A&E, or make an appointment to see your doctor or GP. Getting a tetanus shot is also advisable, particularly if it is more than five years since your last one.
