The Norwegian rat Norwegian rats and the black rat or rat sewer
(rattus rattus) are the most popular.
They are often used as animals for scientific research in the laboratory.
Norwegian rat’s behavior:
- Establishes its nest in the soil.
- Provides food outside before entering the buildings when outdoor food is in need of easier feeding in the buildings.
The characteristics of rats
- Space to enter buildings very small (15mm, 3/4 inch)
- See about (1.5 x 5 feet) away.
- Very sensitive smell (smell, touch, taste, yeah).
- very good climber, can climb a pipe of (7cm, 3pces). And in a pipe of (10cm = 4pces).
- Hollow more than (1 m = 4pces.)
- It can climb a rough wall, can cushion a fall of (15m = 50 ‘)
- Very good swimmer can stay 3 days on the surface.
- His canines grow unlimited he must gnaw continually soft materials. Very dangerous for fires by nibbling electrical wires.
- hygiene around buildings clean and keep clean.
- Avoid stacking or storing material along exterior walls.
- Cut grass and short vegetation near buildings.
- Stripped along the outer walls.
In the wild, they are part of the food chain and prey on predators. Along waterways and in sewer pipes. Frequent movement can help clear clumps and maintain flow.
Too close to buildings, increases the risk of introduction into buildings and even food.
Physical and mechanical methods should be considered as the first tools of work. Considered the risks associated with the use of rodenticides. Ex. L Noise, patards, fireworks, smells, repulsive designs, cage installations and lodging in the forest. Traps near the fan windows.
In some cases rodenticides may be needed as a last resort, but their use can be very toxic, dangerous and carries some risks for other mammals.Outside, these poisons must be used in tamper-proof boxes .
