When are Rats active, and what is their behavior?

Each evening, as they explore their territories, rats and mice learn the locations of new objects, food sources and escape routes. A rat’s territory or “home range” is generally within a 50-foot to 150-foot radius of the nest, while a mouse usually lives within a 10-foot to 30-foot radius of the nest. In places where all their needs (food, water, shelter) are met, rodents have smaller territories.
