Diet
Brown rats consume an average of 50g of food per day and, despite the majority of their nutrition coming from bird-feeders or bins, they are still picky eaters and copy their friends’ habits. Grains, such as cereal, are a typical easily accessible food source for them in homes. Rats have an incredible sense of smell and can distinguish what others have eaten by the scent of food particles on their whiskers. Whatever the nutritional value of this food, be it deadly or bursting with vitamin C, the rat will assume the food is safe because another rat has eaten it and proceed to eat it themselves. Interestingly, the smaller rats in a mischief (the collective name for a group of rats) are out-competed by larger ones and made to venture out in search of secondary food sources; these are dubbed ‘taster rats’. A taster rat must inspect new food sources, and, if it survives, begrudgingly delivers the news back to its mischief who arrive and push him out of the food source to consume themselves.

Evidence of Intrusion
3-6 mm long droppings, black and rod-shaped. Approximately 80 per day, often appearing in clusters. Spotted in various places including attics, storage boxes, floorboards, disused cupboards. Check around fridges, ovens, heating units and washing machines too. Check wood, paper, cables, carpet and furniture for marks. Dark grey marks on surfaces from oil on hair. Although they don’t sweat, they emit a musky odour and urinate a lot, producing an ammonia smell. Hearing pattering feet in walls at night could be a sign of a mouse or rat infestation. If your dog is barking at night at what seems to be nothing, it could be picking up the scent or sounds of rodents.
