Norway Rats Alberta, Alberta ha coordinated a rural based Norway rat control program that has kept the province rat free since 1950. Norway rats are well known to be extremely destructive creatures. The economic losses they cause to stored and in-field crops, the destruction of property and their effects on human health have been widely documented for decades.

Alberta, Canada, is unusual in that rat infestation was eliminated by aggressive government action. Although it is a major agricultural area, it is far from any seaport and only a portion of its eastern boundary with Saskatchewan provides a favorable entry route for rats. They cannot survive in the boreal forest to the north, the Rocky Mountains to the west, nor the semiarid High Plains of Montana to the south.

Some of the common methods used to control the number of Norway rats include: Rat infestations can be prevented by any of three methods: food source removal, rat shelter removal, rat proofing. *Proofing—Prevention is the best cure, There are ways to stop the infestation occurring at the first place e.g. Blocking access points, better waste management, better sewage design etc.

*Trapping—-Using traditional break-back traps, glue traps, live cage traps and other humane traps.
*Poisoning—-There are many types of poison available for the purpose of controlling the Brown rat. The use of poison is controlled in most of the countries in the world so its important to check your state legislations.
