    Norway rats are known to burrow extensively, and tend to build their nests at ground level.

    What Attracts Norway Rats?

    Norway rats are true omnivores and will feed on almost anything. Their diet consists mainly of cereals, but they have a propensity to seek out fatty, greasy foods as well.

    When Norway rats invade buildings, they most often stick to subsurface areas such as sewers and basements.

    Norway rats create burrows that provide warmth, shelter and protection from predators. Their burrows can be extensive and interconnected, and they will retreat to them at the slightest hint of danger.
