They do very well on feed provided for domestic animals such as swine, dairy cows, and chickens, as well as on dog and cat food.

In most of our urban areas, Norway rats may be seen scurrying around after dark looking for food in garbage cans and other places where human refuse is found.

All anticoagulants provide excellent roof rat control when prepared in acceptable baits. Rat control using chemical products involves baits designed to kill rats.

Female adults will produce about seven litters per year and will mate again about 18 hours after giving birth to her litter of about eight pups.
