How to get rid of Norway Rat?

To get a pest problem under control, inspection is the first and foremost step.

The brown rat, common rat, Hanover rat, Norway rat, Norwegian rat, or wharf rat (Rattus norvegicus) is one of the best known and most common rats. It is known to carry some diseases, including Weil’s disease, rat-bite fever, cryptosporidiosis, Viral hemorrhagic fever (VHF), Q fever, and hantavirus pulmonary syndrome.

This species can also serve as a reservoir for Toxoplasma gondii, the parasite that causes toxoplasmosis, though the disease usually spreads from rats to humans when domestic cats feed on infected brown rats. The parasite has a long history with the brown rat, and there are indications that the parasite has evolved to alter an infected rat’s perception to cat predation, making it more susceptible to predation and increasing the likelihood of transmission

Rodent Pest Control

Rodents can be very damaging to your home.

Thought to have originated in northern China, this rodent has now spread to all continents, except Antarctica, and is the dominant rat in Europe and much of North America—making it the most successful mammal on the planet after humans. Indeed, the Norway rat lives wherever humans live, particularly in urban areas.

Seeing just one rodent usually means there are more. Call us for a complete inspection. Don’t wait until damage happens to you
