Don't Let Norway Rats Take Over: Georgia's Battle Against the Burrowers
Underground Invaders: Why Norway Rats Are a Persistent Problem in Georgia
What are Norway Rats?
Roof rats, sometimes called “black rats” or “ship rats,” are a particular type of rodent that prefer high places like attics, trees, and yes—you guessed it—roofs. Unlike their ground-loving cousins, these rats are expert climbers and can easily find their way into your home through openings in the roof or even by using overhanging tree limbs. In Georgia, roof rats have become a significant issue due to the state’s humid climate, which provides an ideal environment for these pests.
Why Should Georgians Be Worried?
Roof rats aren’t just a nuisance; they can also cause real damage and health risks. They’re known for gnawing through electrical wires, which can lead to fires, and they can also contaminate your food and living spaces with their droppings. Plus, roof rats are known carriers of various diseases. In Georgia, where the problem is especially prevalent, it’s crucial to take immediate action if you suspect you have a roof rat infestation.
