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?”

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.

It is estimated that rodents invade more than 20 million homes in the United States every year. The presence of rodents in Hawaii is certainly a problem. An infestation of rats has called for increased Honolulu rodent control, as there are many potential dangers with the population of rats. Serious property damage has occurred with an infestation of rats from chewing furniture, walls, electrical lines and tearing out insulation. Many personal belongings, no matter how carefully packed, have been destroyed by rats chewing into boxes and building nests. However the greatest danger posed is that these rodents spread many diseases everywhere they go. The accumulation of feces spreads bacteria, contaminates food sources and triggers allergic reactions among humans.
