  • What Are Rats?

Sounds in the attic are often the first indication of the presence of roof rats in a residence. At least in some parts of the United States and elsewhere in the world, the methods used to control rats have reduced Norway rat populations but have permitted roof rats to become more prominent, apparently because they are more difficult to control. Roof rats leave a hind foot track of about 3/4-1 inch. However, a few differences must be taken into account. Rats are nocturnal and are not commonly seen. Rats have acute hearing and can readily detect noises. Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything. 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.
