Rats are mostly nocturnal rodents that thrive at night and will most likely come out during the night. But when you have been in major cities you might find a rat scurrying around the city and wonder why they’re so active during the day. The answer is quite simple and it all has to do with the abundance of food and water that are virtually readily available everywhere the rat goes. The rat in the city does not have a very sophisticated palette and is considered to be an opportunistic animal meaning that it will devour everything it sees.
If you see a rat on your property or multiple, hire the rat control technicians from The Exterminators Inc.
Most of the diet is reflective of what the people eat in the city and will therefore most likely consist of fatty and oily foods. Rats are most prominent in city centres in and around places where people are likely to go out and eat. Other common places are near dumpsters and where food gets thrown away.
The Norway rat is mostly seen around private properties where it digs burrows to keep itself protected from possible predators and elements such as the cold, the snow, and the rain. The Norway Rat has a habit of digging burrows that consist of several tunnels with several chambers to store food and where the rats can rest.
Rats have a very interesting hierarchical structure in that the weakest rat is forced to go outside at a less ideal time, namely during the day. For the unfortunate rat, this means not a lot of resources since rat activities happen at prime time at night when the most food is available for the rat. The weaker art also has the unfortunate of sleeping the furthest away from the food. Therefore you see rats coming outside the garden during the day. If you have a rat burrow, there is a high chance that multiple rat families are living in the same rat burrow.
If you do find a live rat, it is recommended to take quick action as rats can easily destroy the aesthetics of your garden while slowly making their way inside of your house whenever they find the opportunity to do so. Rats in the garden can easily find sources of food by going through the garbage and by eating leftovers from pet food. They will eat seeds and grains to survive.
