  • Types of Rats

Within a rat colony, they may be a few rats that are extra cautious and manage to avoid traps or eating rodent baits. As their name suggests, roof rats may be found in elevated areas such as trees, rafters, attics and roofs. Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient. Listen for rat evidence, like their scurrying and running noises in the attic, and scratching in the walls. The number of litters depends on the area and varies with nearness to the limit of their climatic range, availability of nutritious food, density of the local rat population, and the age of the rat. As their name suggests, roof rats may be found in elevated areas such as trees, rafters, attics and roofs. Proper ladder safety is a must, as is roof safety. The most commonly found rat pest in United States is the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus).

Anticoagulant paraffin-type bait blocks provide an alternative to bait stations containing pelleted or loose cereal bait. Their design makes them more rat-specific when used out-of-doors than ordinary snap traps that sometimes take birds. Roof rats entering homes are generally found in raised or secure enclosures such as walls, cabinets, attics, and false ceilings. Look for fresh droppings. They may try to sell you poison stations for exterior rat control, however the rats only find their way back into your attic or walls to die. Norway rats and the roof rats are very different in their habits, habitats and behavior, so the first requirement of a rat treatment program is to correctly identify the rat and develop a treatment plan that works for that species. The muzzle of the roof rat is pointed and the overall appearance of the roof rat is much more streamlined and sleek looking than a Norway rat. In situations where rats are not controlled with conventional products, fumigation of transport vehicles or rat ground burrows may sometimes be needed.

These tactics have been ruled fraudulent by the FTC, and they DO NOT WORK. The most commonly found rat pest in United States is the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus). They use their keen sense of smell to locate and select food items, identify territories and travel routes, and recognize other rats, especially those of the opposite sex. In most of our urban areas, Norway rats may be seen scurrying around after dark looking for food in garbage cans and other places where human refuse is found. Rats will also drag their tails, leaving a mark between their feet tracks. Exclusion is an important rodent control technique. When everyone is asleep and the house is quiet, the rats can be heard scurrying about. When practical, remove extraneous vegetation adjacent to the crop that may provide shelter for rats.
