Millions cringe at the mere mention of them, and there have been horror movies dedicated to them. Just the thought of a city sewer system brings up the image in your mind of hordes of these creatures squealing and squabbling in layers of waste. We have depicted them as creatures that live only in dirty abandoned buildings, sewers, and dumpsters; but this is not accurate. These pests can also live in our homes, and when they appear there, they are a creature that makes us shudder or scream in fear. The Norway rat is only around 7-9 inches long and weighs about 12 ounces, but despite their small size, few would ever look at a rat and express anything but dread and disgust. The question is, “did the Norway rat earn its bad reputation?”
Having problems with rats in your Maui home? Believe it or not, this is not an uncommon occurrence in Hawaii. It's true, these creatures are destructive and can spread disease. That's exactly why we urge any homeowner concerned that rats may be an issue to make the first step in eliminating the problem, by calling in the pest experts from Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions. When receiving treatment for any pest problem, it's natural for a host of questions to arise. Like, will my pest issue be successfully treated? Is the treatment safe? Will the treatment be completed in a timely manner?
There are really only two things Norway rats are looking for, and the closer these two things are to one another, the happier these rodents will be. When they came onto your property, the first thing they were looking for is food. Norway rats, like all rats, are continually in search of food sources. And, when they aren't looking for food, they are looking for shelter. If your property has either of these two things to offer, Norway rats will be happy to make themselves at home.
