Common Rat Species on the Gold Coast

There are two primary species of rats that are commonly found in Australia and can become a nuisance in homes and businesses. Each species has unique characteristics that influence their behaviour and preferred habitats. Understanding these differences can help you identify the type of rat you’re dealing with and inform your rat control strategy.

Black Rat (Rattus Rattus)

Also known as: Roof Rat, Ship Rat, House Rat

Habitat: Black Rats are excellent climbers and tend to live in elevated areas such as roofs, attics, and trees. They can be found in urban and rural areas, often invading homes and other structures to find food and shelter.
Diet: Black Rats are omnivorous and prefer a diet that includes fruits, vegetables, grains, and insects, but will also consume other available food sources when necessary.
Threats: Black Rats can transmit various diseases to humans, including Salmonella, Leptospirosis, and murine typhus. They can also cause significant property damage by gnawing on wires, insulation, and structural elements.

Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)

Also known as: Norway Rat, Sewer Rat, Common Rat
Appearance: The Brown Rat has a stocky body, measuring 20-27 cm in length, with a shorter tail compared to its body length. It has small ears, a blunt muzzle, and brown to grey fur with a lighter coloured underside.
