In the state of Georgia, exterminators and wildlife professionals deal mainly with two kinds of rats: the Roof Rat and the Norway Rat. You may wonder what kind of diet each of these two rat species have; some argue that Roof Rats do not eat meat, and others will assure you that Norway Rats only eat greasy meats. After catching thousands of these animals, Forsyth Wildlife has experienced that both rat species eat meat, fruits, or vegetables, depending on what is available. Both species can be found in crawl spaces, living environments, and attics. It has been our experience that these unpredictable animals are impossible to classify based on diet. They are survivors and their unpredictable nature makes professional help a must.
