Suffolk County Rodent Removal Tip:

Animals That Rats Kill
You might not consider rats and humans to share many traits in common. However, we do have one area of commonality. We're both omnivores. That means we aren't picky about what we eat. Rats are even less selective than people.

From garbage to birdseed, rats eat whatever they can get their claws on. This versatility is one of the features that make them such successful animals and annoying pests. But one of their primary food sources is gained through hunting. 

Like most species that hunt, rats pick animals smaller than themselves. After all, a rat hunting a cat is unlikely to end happily for the rodent involved. It's less about picking on someone their own size, than getting an easy kill.

So, what kind of species do rats pick?

Despite the family ties – rats and mice are close cousins – there is no room for sentimentality. Rats will routinely hunt for mice, tracking them down and eating them. Starting at the brain and liver, they'll proceed to devour them whole. The phenomenon is so familiar, scientists even coined a word: muricide. At higher levels of stress (or when they are exceedingly hungry), neurological activity in the rat's brain changes, increasing the likelihood of mouse-killing feeding behaviors. 

Rats will kill mice using their sharp teeth to bite down on the neck and head, or into the upper back. However, only Norway rats are likely to hunt for mice, with roof rats preferring to forage.

You might never have guessed it, but snails form a vital part of a rat's diet. These blubbery protein balls are easy pickings for rats, with their teeth readily breaking through the shell. Nor does it take a lot of energy to catch a snail. 

rodent trapping Insects
Insects are everywhere. Little surprise then that the adaptable rats should make them a feature of their diet. However, insects are known to move fast. That's why the rat lies in wait. Carefully positioning themselves before pouncing on their prey. From cockroaches and beetles to flying insects, no creepy-crawly is safe when a rat roams the area. 

Aquatic species
If you didn't know, rats are remarkable swimmers. They've been known to swim in open water for up to half a mile. Given these incredible abilities, hunting aquatic species is a common dietary food source. Rats readily hunt animals like shrimp, goldfish, and other freshwater species when searching for a calorific laden diet. They'll even eat larvae and nymphs if they can find them, particularly dragonfly nymphs—no easy feat for a land-based creature.

Other rats
Yes, you read that right. Rats are known to engage in cannibalism when times grow tough. Mothers will eat their young if they have too many offspring or believe that the baby rat won't make it. 

Pups and kittens
Though larger animals are unlikely to form a prominent part of a rat's diet, sometimes they're vulnerable enough to be at risk. Pups and kittens aren't yet able to look after themselves. As such, rats can attack a litter of canine or feline babies, feeding on them when they get desperate.

For pet owners, these events are a harrowing experience. Therefore, it is sensible to keep young pups and kittens out of the yard alone until they can defend themselves. 

While rats will often hunt animals, they are a lazy species. If they can, they'd rather scavenge a meal than exert the energy required to subdue their prey. Nevertheless, for many species, rats are a fear-inducing predator that is better avoided.
