Norway Rats

  • Color: Gray, brown or black

  • Legs: 4

  • Shape: Long

  • Size: 10 - 12 inches (8 inch body plus 4 inch tail)

  • Antennae: No

  • Region: Found throughout U.S.

These rats have smaller eyes and ears and shorter tails.


Rats are excellent climbers and often enter a home in the fall when outside food sources become scarce.


Norway rats live in fields, farm lands and in structures. Rats are often found in wood piles. Rodents can gain entry to a home through a hole the size of a quarter.


Rats can chew through wiring, causing fires. They also spread numerous diseases.


Keep firewood stored well away from the structure. Remove debris piles. For proper Norway rat control, seal any holes larger than 1/4 inch. Remove moisture and harborage sources to get rid of Norway rats.
