The Norway rat is also known as the house rat. They spread disease through droppings and urine. These rodents are stronger and more aggressive than roof rats, weighing up to 16 ounces. These rats prefer meats and proteins to vegetables and fruits.
Rodents seek shelter during winter to have their offspring. Check around your basement and attic for brown or black droppings. Make sure all tree limbs are cut back away from the house as rodents travel them to enter your home or building.
