Rats in the UK

There are two types of rats that cause problems in the UK. The most common is the brown rat (rattus norvegicus) and the other rarer rat is the black rat (rattus rattus). Rats take between 2-3 months to reach sexual maturity and can have up to 7 litters per year with the average litter size being about 8. If a rat problem is left unchecked you can quickly have an infestation.

Signs of a Rat Problem

The most common signs that you have a rat problem are:

  • scratching or gnawing noises in the wall, floor, roof space or under decking
  • droppings in or around your home
  • damage to your property chewed furnishings, fittings, cables or torn up insulation
  • nests with shredded material such as insulation, paper or packaging
  • a burrow under compost heaps, sheds, decking or summer houses
