About the Norway Rat
Norway Rats can cause significant damage to buildings, spread diseases, and contaminate food storages. They can be extremely dangerous.
As vigilant survivors, the Norway rat can adapt to almost any living condition. In urban areas, Norway rats prefer moist underground areas such as basements, subway stations, and sewers. These rats have a tendency to invade residential homes and commercial buildings during the colder months of winter and early spring.
Besides seeking protection from natural elements and predators, Norway rats are also attracted to the abundance of food that is stored in your house.
Norway Rat Problems
Norway Rats will often live near human populations due to their abundance of food and shelter. Living around Norway rats is a huge concern to homeowners because these rats will cause damages and spread diseases.
Rats will burrow underground and generally cause damage upon entry, but also ongoing damage to structures if they are not trapped and removed. Finding a source of food is the main reason for a rat infestation and you will often see them feeding in garbage cans, dumpsters, and gardens. These are common complaints within urban and suburban areas.
