This study aimed to: (1) Establish if rodent populations in sewers are separate from surface ones (Sewer Interceptor study) (2) Investigate the numbers and distribution of rats in sewers (Preferred Location study! Long term study! Hot spot study) (3) Identify Rat behaviours that might affect numbers and control measures (Bait trial! Preferred Location study). To achieve these aims sewer rat populations were monitored in the London sewer systems over a 20-year period. More detailed studies on rat behaviour were carried out in sequestered sewer systems.
