House Brown/Norway Rat

The Norway rat, commonly referred to as the street or sewer rat, is believed to be of Asian origin. Today, Norway rats are found throughout the world. Norway rats have fairly poor vision and are colorblind. Despite this, their other senses, including hearing, smell, touch, and taste, are keen.


Although not extremely agile, they are capable of running, climbing, jumping, and swimming. Norway rats are known to cause damage to properties and structures through their gnawing.
