You hear the scratching rodents in your attic at night, correct? So you might assume that the rats are entering your attic at night. All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice. Always be sure that fresh bait is available continuously until rats stop feeding. Norway rats build their nests in underground burrows where they mate, rear their young, store food and seek refuge from predators. Scientists have noted that the roof rat’s long tail is adapted to enhance their ability to climb and functions to assists them in balancing. In rare instances, isolated populations are found in areas not within their normal distribution range in the United States. In some agricultural areas, roof rats cause significant losses of tree crops such as citrus and avocados and, to a lesser extent, walnuts, almonds, and other nuts. Rodenticides were once categorized as acute (single-dose) or chronic (multiple dose) toxicants.

Rat control requires an integrated approach that includes non-lethal tools such as careful inspections, upgraded sanitation, and rat-proofing structures. Hantavirus - a potentially lethal virus if humans come in contact with rat urine or feces. Rats can also transmit rat bite fever through bacteria in their mouth. 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. Successful long-term rat control is not simple. Distinctions must be made as to which rodenticide (registered product) to use, the method of application or placement, and the amount of bait to apply. Without this knowledge, both time and money are wasted, and the chances of failure are increased. Eliminate vines growing on buildings and, when feasible, overhanging tree limbs that may be used as travel routes.

Body is smaller and sleeker than the Norway rat’s. The elimination of food and water through good warehouse sanitation can do much to reduce rodent infestation. Their keen sense of hearing also aids in their ability to detect and escape danger. Again, if you are having trouble doing it yourself, you can give a professional a call off of my directory of expert Rat Removal Companies, and see what they have to say, or schedule a service appointment to get the problem correctly and permanently taken care of. In controlling roof rats with rodenticides, a sharp distinction must be made between control in and around buildings and control away from buildings such as in landfills and dumps, along drainage ditches and streams, in sewer water evaporation ponds, and in parks. Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything. Norway rats are also polygamous and form colonies of many males and females. This cost will vary a great deal, depending on how many repairs are needed, what part of the country you live in, how many rats are in the attic, how many service trips are necessary, if you need cleanup, etc.
