Read my comprehensive guide to rats in the attic. Then the rats should be trapped and removed. Although roof rats have not yet been connected to HPS, everyone is advised to use caution when dealing with an infestation. Timing a sealup for rats is impossible, because they leave for short periods, and they don't all leave at the same time of night. The Norway rat produces six to eight litters of six to nine young per year. 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. Statisticians estimate that rats destroy 20 percent of the world's food supply every year by feeding, and indirectly through contamination. Having completed the repairs to wires, and possibly vacuumed feces or replaced insulation (not usually necessary) fumigate the attic to kill any remaining parasites or spores from the rats.

The ears and tail are nearly hairless and they are typically 12 to 18 inches long including the tail and weigh 10 to 16 ounces. Labels will specify where and under what conditions the bait can be used. Newer rodenticides are much more efficacious and have resulted in the phasing out of these older materials over the last 20 years. Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource. Landscaped residential or industrial areas provide good habitat, as does riparian vegetation of riverbanks and streams. There is less tendency to see droppings, urine, or tracks on the floor in buildings because rats may live overhead between floors, above false ceilings, or in utility spaces, and venture down to feed or obtain food. Where anticoagulant resistance is known or suspected, the use of first-generation anticoagulants should be avoided in favor of the second-generation anticoagulants or one of the non anticoagulant rodenticides like bromethalin or cholecalciferol. They may eat vegetation, but prefer to meat or meat-related wastes.

Various sounds that indicate rodent activity include gnawing, scratching, and digging noises. Rat droppings are small, dark, cylindrically shaped, and are about one-half inch to three-fourths inch long with blunt ends. 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. Roof rats usually require water daily, though their local diet may provide an adequate amount if it is high in water content. Female adults will produce about seven litters per year and will mate again about 18 hours after giving birth to her litter of about eight pups. Anticoagulant paraffin-type bait blocks provide an alternative to bait stations containing pelleted or loose cereal bait. Timing a sealup for rats is impossible, because they leave for short periods, and they don't all leave at the same time of night. The young are able to breed before they are four months old.
