rat 003Broken foundations, utility entries and vents can also be an obvious entry point. Rats contaminating food or food preparation surfaces can transmit food poisoning. They also feed on a variety of vegetative parts of ornamental and native plant materials. PLEASE read my how to trap a rat guide for good tips and methods on proper rat trapping. 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. Trim all tree branches to further prevent entry. For more detailed information, see Rodent-proof Construction and Exclusion Methods. Invest in your home and property by taking care of the rat problem correctly.

Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences. They need not be baited. When droppings are seen, it is a good practice to remove those droppings and later inspect to see whether new droppings were deposited. If the food is in an exposed area and too large to be eaten quickly, but not too large to be moved, they will usually carry it to a hiding place before eating it. Citrus trees, having very low hanging skirts, are more prone to damage because they provide rats with protection. Breeding seasons vary in different areas. If living under a refrigerator or freezer, they may disable the unit by gnawing the electrical wires. 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.

They are usually a shiny black, but may vary according to diet. Other vegetable, melon, berry, and fruit crops occasionally suffer relatively minor damage when adjacent to infested habitat such as riparian vegetation. The Norway rat is generally considered the most important rat in the United States. Burrows Or Nests Holes in the ground around foundations, plus nests in attics or trees are evidence of a rat problem. 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. Wire-mesh, live traps (Tomahawk®, Havahart®) are available for trapping rats. Droppings Rats produce a lot of feces and the presence of their fecal droppings is a surefire way to spot an infestation. Eliminate vines growing on buildings and, when feasible, overhanging tree limbs that may be used as travel routes.
