The Norway rat is common pest in many parts of Victoria and NSW. These rats can cause significant damage by chewing through materials, but can also spoil food through contamination.
Rats do not discriminate and can setup in any type of home in various environments. Research has shown that rats and mice can eat up to half their body weight in a day.
Rats only take 2 to 3 months to mature and have a gestation period of 22 days. A pair of rats can have 4-7 litters per year with each litter producing up to 8-12 young mice. It should also be noted that the average life span of rats is 1 year. A global study has shown that mice and rats destroy enough food to feed 200 million people.
