While you are preventing future rat population growth through inspection, sanitation, and exclusion, you will also want to begin working towards elimination of the population that is already present through trapping and baiting. Our professional wildlife professionals may not show you how to kill the rats but instead use rat repellents, rat fumigants and rat trapping systems to ensure the effectiveness of the rat control method, without physically harming the rats. Also, carry out a visual examination of the attic to find the holes they were using to get in and out of the attic. At about 3 months of age they are completely independent of the mother and are reproductively mature. Tracking powders are used much less often for roof rats than for Norway rats because roof rats frequent overhead areas within buildings. In tree crops, some cultural practices can be helpful. These devices must be viewed with considerable skepticism, because research has not proven them effective. If living under a refrigerator or freezer, they may disable the unit by gnawing the electrical wires.

Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures. Norway rats are also polygamous and form colonies of many males and females. Becomes sexually mature between two and five months, producing four to six litters per year that consist of six to eight young each. It is difficult to find suitable places to lay the tracking powder that will not create a potential problem of contaminating food or materials below the placement sites. Without this knowledge, both time and money are wasted, and the chances of failure are increased. Norway rats are a common mammalian pest of rice, but sometimes roof rats also feed on newly planted seed or the seedling as it emerges. It is recommended for use in homes because, unlike with poison baits, there is no risk of a rat dying in an inaccessible place and creating an odor problem. The first and most crucial thing is to inspect the house and find all possible entry holes, and before starting any trapping, carry out repairs and seal the attic so the rats can't get in again.

Dealing With Roof Rat Problems

  • The Invasion Of Roof Rats

  • Can rats swim? Do they drown?

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

You might find holes in walls and wood. Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits. Floor drains and sewer pipes should have tight-fitting grates with openings less than 1/4 inch in diameter. Rats rely more on their keen senses of smell, taste, touch, and hearing than on vision. POISON IS A HORRIBLE IDEA FOR MANY MANY REASONS - poison won't solve the problem, and it'll just create more problems. PLEASE read my how to trap a rat guide for good tips and methods on proper rat trapping. Their keen sense of hearing also aids in their ability to detect and escape danger. Between 9 and 14 days, their eyes open, and they begin to explore for food and move about near their nest.
