Norway Rat

Our remedy for norway rat control

First, contact us. Successful rodent control is a multi-faceted effort that includes routine inspection for signs of activity, placement of baits to control an existing population, and continued efforts to prevent inviting them into the structure. Removing their food and harborage sources will make your property less inviting. Seal any holes larger than 1/4″ wide. Sloppy trash receptacles or dumpsters, dripping faucets and open food in pantries are open invitations for rodents.

How to Identify a Norway Rat

Appearance

Gray, brown or black, with small eyes and ears and tails shorter than their bodies; up to 12 inches.

Habitat

The Norway rat is the largest and most common structure-dwelling rat in the world. In rural areas it lives in fields, wooded areas and farms, and in urban areas in vacant lots and buildings. It nests in burrows underground and may enter buildings in search of food. Due to its large size, it needs a hole about the size of a quarter to enter a building. Once inside, Norway rats can chew through wiring, causing fires. Removing them often requires professional rodent control expertise. They are known to spread numerous diseases.

Diet

Norway rats will eat practically anything, including pet waste in backyards, although they prefer meat, fish and cereal.

I had NO idea they were acrobat ants!

“I knew I had an ant problem but I had no idea how bad it was. Our basement flooded a year ago and we thought we had remedied the problem, except this spring we found several ants in our basement. Rose identified the ants as Acrobat Ants and that the drywall and framework had many nests inside. Many! We ended up having to re-drywall the basement due to mold (and the ants) but we wouldn’t have known about the entirety of the problem if it wasn’t for Rose Pest Control.”
