At birth they are hairless, and their eyes are closed. They also often chew on inedible materials such as books, soap, and cans. The Norway rat is generally considered the most important rat in the United States. The product label is the law and dictates the product’s location of use and use patterns. The Norway rat is also called brown rat, house rat, sewer rat, and wharf rat. Many rats may cache or hoard considerable amounts of solid food, which they eat later. Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions. Indoors, runways appear as clean paths through dust or dirt.

The reproductive potential of one female Norway rat is about 50-60 young per year. They often eat all the pulp from oranges while the fruit is still hanging on the tree, leaving only the empty rind. When necessary, roof rats will travel considerable distances (100 to 300 feet [30 to 90 m]) for food. 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. Bubonic plague was a scourge in Europe several times throughout history. In food-storage facilities, the most prominent sign may be smudge marks, the result of oil and dirt rubbing off of their fur as they travel along their aerial routes. You will know the bait is working when the bait is no longer being consumed. Use a powerful flashlight to spot rats and to determine travel routes for the best locations to set baits and traps.

Snap traps are actually the very best way to do it. Rat control requires an integrated approach that includes non-lethal tools such as careful inspections, upgraded sanitation, and rat-proofing structures. Between 9 and 14 days, their eyes open, and they begin to explore for food and move about near their nest. Listen for rat evidence, like their scurrying and running noises in the attic, and scratching in the walls. Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available. Wire-mesh, live traps (Tomahawk®, Havahart®) are available for trapping rats. Once you're satisfied that there is no more evidence of rats, and you are not trapping any new rats, you should clean the attic or whatever area they were living in, to remove the contamination and biohazard, and also to eliminate the rat scent, which will attract new rats to try to chew their way into the house in the future. The first and most crucial thing is to inspect the house and find all possible entry holes, and before starting any trapping, carry out repairs and seal the attic so the rats can't get in again.
