While you will not reasonably be able to compensate for every possible rodent entry, you can greatly reduce the ease of entry for rodents (and thereby, reduce the population size) by taking the following measures:
Severe pruning and/or removal of certain ornamentals are often required to obtain a degree of lasting rat control.
That is very costly! Do the job ONCE by a wildlife operator, NOT A PEST CONTROL COMPANY, get it done, and you'll be rat-free forever.
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.
In general, glue boards are more effective for house mice than for either of the rat species.
In controlling roof rats with rodenticides, a sharp distinction must be made between control in and around buildings and control away from buildings such as in landfills and dumps, along drainage ditches and streams, in sewer water evaporation ponds, and in parks.
Rats can also transmit rat bite fever through bacteria in their mouth.
Tracking powders play an important role in structural rodent control.
When necessary, roof rats will travel considerable distances (100 to 300 feet [30 to 90 m]) for food.
Roof rats have hairless, scaly tails that are longer than their heads and bodies.
Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences.
In some situations, pet food and poorly managed garbage may represent a major food resource.
Where legal and not hazardous, shooting of roof rats is effective at dusk as they travel along utility lines.
The young are able to breed before they are four months old.
The Norway rat is generally considered the most important rat in the United States.
Generally, Roof rats stay within 100 miles inland.
It is difficult to find suitable places to lay the tracking powder that will not create a potential problem of contaminating food or materials below the placement sites.
The muzzle of the roof rat is pointed and the overall appearance of the roof rat is much more streamlined and sleek looking than a Norway rat.
This cost will vary a great deal, depending on how many repairs are needed, what part of the country you live in, how many rats are in the attic, how many service trips are necessary, if you need cleanup, etc.
Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures.
And most of all, you want someone who will do this complex work correctly.
Droppings Rats produce a lot of feces and the presence of their fecal droppings is a surefire way to spot an infestation.
These techniques include improving sanitation for the affected location, eliminating hiding places, exclusion and may also include lethal methods such as traps and rodenticides.
These devices must be viewed with considerable skepticism, because research has not proven them effective.
