Norway Rat

The Norway rat is present across the United States and is the dominant pest rat species in most states. It is larger and more aggressive than the roof rat, which it displaces in temperate regions. Norway rats are adaptable to both rural and urban environments. They naturally swim well and hunt for prey animals, especially birds. As human population density increases in cities, so does the number of Norway rats since easier access to food creates smaller territories.
