Norway rats are primarily a nocturnal, outdoor inhabitant. Outdoors, they live in burrows and under piles of trash. Occasionally they will find a way to set up housekeeping indoors. Outdoor rats probe the exterior perimeter of buildings at night seeking food and shelter. Outdoors, they feed on insects, grains, garbage, garbage dumpsters, dog food, and bird seed. They follow pipes, holes in the foundation, beneath garage roll doors, and any other opening they can find to enter a building. Once inside, they forage for food, such as dead insects, kitchen scraps, and pantry items. Once established indoors, they investigate their territory multiple times a night looking for food.
Rats defecate and urinate throughout their territories.
