In residences where rats may be living in the attic and feeding outdoors, the damage may be restricted to tearing up insulation for nesting or gnawing electrical wiring. In rare instances, isolated populations are found in areas not within their normal distribution range in the United States. POISON IS A HORRIBLE IDEA FOR MANY MANY REASONS - poison won't solve the problem, and it'll just create more problems. 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. The most commonly found rat pest in United States is the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus). Without this knowledge, both time and money are wasted, and the chances of failure are increased. These rats are primarily active at night. Caution should be taken to avoid trapping nontarget species such as tree squirrels.

  • What are Rats?

A vegetation-free margin around the grove will slow rat invasions because rats are more susceptible to predation when crossing unfamiliar open areas. These techniques include improving sanitation for the affected location, eliminating hiding places, exclusion and may also include lethal methods such as traps and rodenticides. Since roof rats rarely dig burrows, burrow fumigants are of limited use; however, if they have constructed burrows, then fumigants that are effective on Norway rats, such as aluminum phosphide and gas cartridges, will be effective on roof rats. The advantages of trapping when compared to baiting include: 1) Trapping does not require the use of harmful poisons; 2) Trapping allows the user to know whether the rat was killed, whereas with baiting the rat will wander off and die somewhere else; 3) Trapping eliminates odor problems by allowing you to dispose of the rat carcass. PLEASE read my how to trap a rat guide for good tips and methods on proper rat trapping. These rats are primarily active at night. Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption. Tunnel boxes or bait boxes specially designed to expose a layer of toxic powder will reduce potential contamination problems and may actually increase effectiveness.
