The Norway rat is generally considered the most important rat in the United States. The commercially available, expanded plastic treadle traps, such as the Victor Professional Rat Trap, are particularly effective if properly located in well-traveled paths. There is often a correlation between rat problems and the keeping of dogs, especially where dogs are fed outdoors. Typically, 3 or more litters are produced annually. Becomes sexually mature between two and five months, producing four to six litters per year that consist of six to eight young each. However, a few differences must be taken into account.
