Louisville Wildlife Tip: Do Louisville Rats come out in Light or Avoid Light?
When we think of animals and their relation to light, we generally have two perspectives;
The animals that avoid light
The animals that do not avoid light

The animals that avoid light can be known as nocturnal animals.
Nocturnal animals are those animals that sleep in the day and perform their hunting activities in the night. Some commonly known nocturnal animals are bats and possums. However, one thing to note is that bats, possums and, animals similar to them are nocturnal as they are obligated to avoid being in the sunlight. This may be due to the fact that these animals have very sensitive eyes and a poor sense of vision. So, hunting at night (and avoiding the sun) is a safer option for them.

Are Louisville Rats Nocturnal?
Rats may be considered nocturnal in a way. This is because rats do in fact avoid the light however not due to the same reasons as bats or possums. Rats avoid day time simply because they believe it is a safer option for them to slither around in the dark. Going out in the daytime does not do them any harm per se. Thus, hunting at night gives rats advantaged they would not otherwise have.

Domestic vs. Wild Rats
Domestic rats are those which are accustomed to staying in a more home like setting. This home may be one where the rat is kept as a pet. It could also be the case that a rat has been living in a small hole in a house and is used to the calm environment. On the other hand, wild rats are simply those that live in spaces such as sewers, streets, etc. In relation to light and rats reactions to light, there isn't really much of a difference. Just as how a domestic rat may not be irritated by light, a wild rat may not be either. The only real change is that domestic rats may be more used to lights as they may see them on a daily basis inside their homes and wild rats may become startled as they have not ever or don't frequently come in contact with such properties.

A Misconception about Rats & Light
There may be a misconception among some people about rats and how they absolutely must avoid day time light no matter what. Really, the fact is that some rats may actually be comfortable in the daytime or sunlight. Rats may just avoid a certain type or types of light. These can be, for example, flashing lights. Flashing lights may be irritating to rats and their eyes, therefore, causing them to avoid it. This may be the reason that some companies sell light machines to scare off rats. These machines are designed with the purpose to irritate Louisville rats, meaning that, normal lights, such as flashlights would not as successful to deter a rat.
