Roof rats are commonly found in Las Vegas as are Norway rats. Also called brown or sewer rats, Norway rats can grow up to 13-16 inches long and are not native to Las Vegas (but let's be honest, who is?) and have likely hitched a ride here on building materials shipped in from out of state. Much like tourists, once they get here they like to party. These rodents are randy, multiplying quickly, living in polygamous colonies and mating year round in some areas. Female roof rats can reproduce at 3-5 months old, give birth to a litter and mate again after approximately 18 hours after childbirth. Norway rats are equally... fruitful.
Roof rats feed on vegetation, eating fruits, grains, seeds, and whatever you just brought home from the Farmer's Market. Norway rats eat just about everything. The biggest danger to your kitchen is not their appetites, but contamination from their urine or feces. Once their droppings have dried, they can break apart releasing airborne particles. Attempts to clean this can prove dangerous without proper protection.
If you see rats (or more likely, rat poop) in our around your home, keep your family safe by calling WB Pest Control.
