We are the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus) we are strong, very aggressive, and able to adapt to cold climates.
We can be found in and around every town and farm in the country. It is estimated that there is one us for every person living in the United States. We have followed man to almost all parts of the world. We have no respect for social class; We are equal opportunity pests. We are so closely linked to man we are called domestic rodents. Man supplies their three basic needs: food, shelter, and water. We can be found in your homes, supermarkets, restaurants, livestock pens, and farm fields. Warehouses, grain mills, elevators, silos and corncribs are especially vulnerable to our infestation. We will eat anything man or his livestock eats. We are active at night. We are seldom seen during the day except when populations are exceedingly large. We can crawl through very small crevices, which makes it hard to confine our movement. Even if you can't see us, you may hear us moving after dark. If your pet paws at a wall or cabinet it may be after one of us. Cats and dogs are not much of a deterrent to us, just FYI.
