  • How to Get Rid of Rats

Some of the more important diseases associated with rats include Rat-Bite Fever and Leptospirosis. Once established, they readily breed and thrive within buildings, just as Norway rats do. It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing. Tracking powders are used much less often for roof rats than for Norway rats because roof rats frequent overhead areas within buildings. If you're not experienced in setting them, you may have some problems, so be careful. The social behavior of free-living roof rats is very difficult to study and, as a result, has received less attention than that of Norway rats. However, when a Norway rat population grows so large that competition from other rats for food, water and harborage increases, some members of the rat community may seek to find new areas to colonize during the daytime. 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. Unfortunately, the rat’s great adaptability to varying environmental conditions can sometimes make this information elusive. However, rats are a nuisance animal wherever you choose to release them, and they also have a particularly low rate of survival once they have been relocated, so in most cases using humane lethal traps will be the best way to deal with the infestation. Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient. 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. Having completed the repairs to wires, and possibly vacuumed feces or replaced insulation (not usually necessary) fumigate the attic to kill any remaining parasites or spores from the rats. Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed. Most of the states in the US interior are free of roof rats, but isolated infestations, probably stemming from infested cargo shipments, can occur.
