The best rat trap: Believe it or not, the tried-and-true, low-tech mouse trap (snap trap) – a simple piece of wood with a spring-loaded bar – is the most effective and humane way to kill a rat.

How to keep rats out of my garden


how many babies do roof rats have

  • Do rats dig holes? Do they burrow under houses? How deep?

  • The Invasion Of Roof Rats

  • Types of Rats

With lemons they may eat only the rind and leave the hanging fruit intact. They prefer gnawing on wood but may also damage property, electrical wiring, and food packaging. Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption. If you have rats in your home, it's very important to do the job right the first time! I have seen dozens and dozens of cases of nightmare scenarios over many years, in which homeowners have paid pest control companies for a monthly contract that never ends. Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available. In situations where rats are not controlled with conventional products, fumigation of transport vehicles or rat ground burrows may sometimes be needed. Roof rats are also food hoarders, stashing supplies of food such as seeds and nuts. It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing.

Typically, 3 or more litters are produced annually. Roof rats range along the lower half of the East Coast and throughout the Gulf States upward into Arkansas. The only way to solve a rat or mouse problem is to find every last point of entry into the house, and seal it shut. Fur is smooth. Rats will also drag their tails, leaving a mark between their feet tracks. Rats may carry viruses such as Hantavirus and salmonella, and although they can also be a carrier of bubonic plague, that disease is not indigenous in the USA. Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed. When rodent-proofing against roof rats, pay close attention to the roof and roof line areas to assure all accesses are closed.

It is unlikely, however, they will be any more effective for roof rats than for Norway rats. They are very strong, and can injure your fingers. In situations where rats are not controlled with conventional products, fumigation of transport vehicles or rat ground burrows may sometimes be needed. Rats that are captured should be humanely destroyed and not released elsewhere because of their role in disease transmission, damage potential, and detrimental effect on native wildlife. Rats will also drag their tails, leaving a mark between their feet tracks. Then they return to the attic. They often eat all the pulp from oranges while the fruit is still hanging on the tree, leaving only the empty rind. Always be sure that fresh bait is available continuously until rats stop feeding.
