NORWAY RAT CONTROL IN LOS ANGELES
We Get Rid of Norway Rats in Riverside, San Bernardino, Orange & Ventura Counties
The Norway rat, also known as the street rat or sewer rat, first arrived in the United States in the 1700s, when ships from other countries accidentally brought them over. Found throughout the world today, Norway rats have keen senses of hearing, smell, touch, and taste. While they don’t see well and are not very agile, they can run, climb, swim, and jump very fast. One of the two most common types of rats in America – the other being the roof rat – Norway rats cause a ton of property damage to homes and businesses across the U.S. every year, so if you see one on your property, it is important to call an experienced pest professional ASAP.

Signs of a Norway Rat Infestation in Los Angeles
Norway rats have bristly, brown coats with black hairs sprinkled throughout their bodies. Their undersides are a lighter color, typically something in the range of gray, off-white, or yellow. These rodents have tiny eyes and ears, and their tales are shorter than other rat species, not even spanning the length of their bodies. They also tend to have flatter snouts, and generally measure somewhere between 7-9 ½ inches in length.
Norway rats reproduce quickly and can give birth to three to six litters a year. For this reason, it is important to take proactive measures to prevent an infestation from occurring in your home. These rodents are naturally drawn to piles of wood, which make great hiding places for them, so if you keep any firewood outside, make sure it is secured safely in a shed, away from your house. They are also drawn to moisture, so fixing any leaky pipes is a great way to keep Norway rats out, especially ones in damp dark areas like basements and crawlspaces. And of course, it is important to keep your property fighting, putting away leftover food, cleaning up crumbs and spills, and making sure there are tightly sealed lids on your garbage can.

- Gnaw marks on furniture/wood
- Black, capsule-shaped droppings around your property
