What are Rats?
Rats are a type of rodent and one of the most common pests worldwide. Almost every climate can support them, but they prefer warm areas to find food and shelter. In addition to being resourceful, rats are able to survive on very little food, making them a difficult pest to eradicate. Two types of rats are common in the UK- the black rat and the brown rat.
What do Rats look like?
Rats are typically about 12-18 inches long, including their tail. They have a slender body shape and small ears. Their fur can be either light or dark brown, depending on the type of rat. Rats can vary in colour, but they typically have grey or brown fur. They are also quite large, averaging about 12 inches long from nose to tail. They have small ears, and a pointed nose and two large front teeth are visible when they open their mouths.
What do Rats eat?
Rats will eat almost anything, including food items in your kitchen and garbage outside the house. They also enjoy eating plants like grasses or vegetables if they can get to them, so make sure you keep all of these things sealed uptight!
Rat Droppings: What to look for?
Among the most common signs of rat infestation is droppings. Rats can have multiple babies at once, so it only takes one pregnant female to give you an infestation very quickly! If there's more than one rat in your home, there will be more droppings. Rats also have a unique way of leaving their droppings behind- they usually leave them in prominent places that are easy to spot. Hence, the other rats know where not to go(basically marking their territory).
Other Signs: How can I tell if I have Rats?
Another sign you may have rats is if you hear scratching, squeaking or scurrying in your walls. Rats have a unique way of moving around- they climb and can balance on tiny openings(even as thin as a pencil!), so trying to block up every opening won't work because the rats will find another one somewhere else.
Rat Diseases: What do I need to know?
Rats can carry many different diseases, some of which are deadly. They can spread these diseases through their droppings, urine or saliva. Some of the most common rat-borne diseases include:
-Leptospirosis: This is a severe bacterial infection that affects the liver and kidneys. It can be deadly if not treated.
-Hantavirus: This virus is spread through contact with rat urine, droppings or saliva. It causes fever, muscle aches and respiratory problems.
Salmonella is an infection of the digestive system and can cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhoea.
-Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis (LCM): This virus is spread through contact with rat urine, droppings or saliva. It causes fever, headache, fatigue and muscle aches.
