What Do Rats Eat?

  • Do rats bite humans in their sleep?

I highly recommend snap traps, not live cage traps, certainly not glue boards, and most definitely not poison! Never poison rats, it doesn't solve the problem and it just creates more problems. Rat control using chemical products involves baits designed to kill rats. Pelleted or loose cereal anticoagulant baits are used extensively in tamper-resistant bait boxes or stations for a permanent baiting program for Norway rats and house mice. A control operation, therefore, must reduce numbers to a very low level; otherwise, rats will not only reproduce rapidly, but often quickly exceed their former density for a short period of time. Roof rats are not protected by law and can be controlled any time with mechanical or chemical methods. Some traps should be placed on the floor, but more should be placed above floor level (for example, on top of stacked commodities). Grease marks (from the oil and dirt of rats) often appear along walls next to runways. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide.

  • Are cage traps a good option for rats?

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. The young are able to breed before they are four months old. The traditional style snap traps are still among the best ways of dealing with a rat problem, and these are simple to set and bait, and you should look to place them in areas where the rats are active, so where you can see feces and smudges on the walls. Rats may carry viruses such as Hantavirus and salmonella, and although they can also be a carrier of bubonic plague, that disease is not indigenous in the USA. 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. Some of the more important diseases associated with rats include Rat-Bite Fever and Leptospirosis. In general, glue boards are more effective for house mice than for either of the rat species. Rats that are captured should be humanely destroyed and not released elsewhere because of their role in disease transmission, damage potential, and detrimental effect on native wildlife.

Your inspection process must include ladder work and climbing on a roof. These devices must be viewed with considerable skepticism, because research has not proven them effective. Adult roof rats usually live about one year. Rats are easier to exclude than mice because rats a typically larger. That is not the case! They sleep in your attic all day, and then at dusk they wake up, and start moving around, and that's why you hear them after dark. Their design makes them more rat-specific when used out-of-doors than ordinary snap traps that sometimes take birds. Their burrowing habitats include soil along building foundations, under woodpiles and other piles of debris. When necessary, roof rats will travel considerable distances (100 to 300 feet [30 to 90 m]) for food.
