Ask Mr. Pest Control


Q: What is the home range of a Norway rat and a roof rat from their nesting place?

-- Joey, MS

A: The average for commensal rats is a 25-100 foot radius, but the reality is that it depends on how close a food source is located. If a rat can find food within 10 feet of its nest, it has no reason to go further in search of food. But if it has to go beyond 100 feet in search of food, then it will. It depends on the situation and it’s important not to limit your mindset to textbook numbers.
