Once you are confident that you have caught all of the rats that are in the attic, then it will be time to check for any insulation or wires in the attic that need to be replaced, and for any nesting material to remove, and feces to clean up.
Roof rat droppings are 12 to 13 mm with pointed ends, whereas Norway rat droppings are 18 to 20 mm and capsule shaped.
There is often a correlation between rat problems and the keeping of dogs, especially where dogs are fed outdoors.
Rodent-proofing against roof rats usually requires more time to find entry points than for Norway rats because of their greater climbing ability.
At least in some parts of the United States and elsewhere in the world, the methods used to control rats have reduced Norway rat populations but have permitted roof rats to become more prominent, apparently because they are more difficult to control.
They are usually a shiny black, but may vary according to diet.
While you will not reasonably be able to compensate for every possible rodent entry, you can greatly reduce the ease of entry for rodents (and thereby, reduce the population size) by taking the following measures:
Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed.
Sightings & Sounds - Since rodents are nocturnal and live secretively under normal circumstances, you can be sure that regular daytime rodent sightings indicate a heavy infestation.
Products sold as general animal repellents, based on taste and/or odor, are sometimes advertised to repel animals, including rats, from garbage bags.
In agricultural settings, weasels, foxes, coyotes, and other predators prey on roof rats, but their take is inconsequential as a population control factor.
Hundreds may be nesting in a city block-in underground burrows, in sewers, on roofs, inside buildings-with few people in the area realizing it.
Monitor the situation.
Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient.
Roof rats are highly adaptable.
Rub marks - rats get coated with dirt and they like to rub against the walls to find their way around a room’s perimeter, since they can't see so well.
Some of their habitats include garbage dumps, sewers and fields.
Once you're satisfied that there is no more evidence of rats, and you are not trapping any new rats, you should clean the attic or whatever area they were living in, to remove the contamination and biohazard, and also to eliminate the rat scent, which will attract new rats to try to chew their way into the house in the future.
In general, glue boards are more effective for house mice than for either of the rat species.
They do very well on feed provided for domestic animals such as swine, dairy cows, and chickens, as well as on dog and cat food.
Nests inside and under buildings, or in piles of rubbish or wood.
Norway rats build their nests in underground burrows where they mate, rear their young, store food and seek refuge from predators.
The wildlife operator will seal shut all the rat entry points, and that's the ONLY way to solve a rat problem forever.
In a human environment, the rodents will consume almost any food to which they have access.
