Know Your Pests:
Norway Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)
This is the largest of the three, and is a major pest in the most human environments where food and shelter are available. It is often present in food handling facilities, sewers, garbage areas and on most types of farms. Unlike mice and roof rats, Norway rats make burrows in the soil and have concealed escape holes known as ‘bolt holes’. In cold weather, particularly in highland areas, they will live inside buildings, making their nests in walls and roof cavities.
The Norway rat weighs about 450 grams. It has a blunt nose area, its tail is shorter than its body length, and its ears are close-set and small. The fur is a coarse brown colour. It lives about one year, and during that time, produces five to six litters - each having about eight young. When other rodents are also present, the Norway rat is the physically dominant species.
