  • Rat Droppings

They are nocturnal by nature and are accomplished climbers. 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. When everyone is asleep and the house is quiet, the rats can be heard scurrying about. Rats tend to segregate themselves socially in both space and time. When droppings are seen, it is a good practice to remove those droppings and later inspect to see whether new droppings were deposited. Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces. Hantavirus - a potentially lethal virus if humans come in contact with rat urine or feces. Most commercial baits are registered for both species of rats and for house mice, but often they are less acceptable to roof rats than to the other species.

The reproductive potential of one female Norway rat is about 50-60 young per year. Most commercial baits are registered for both species of rats and for house mice, but often they are less acceptable to roof rats than to the other species. Scratching sounds - if you hear gnawing and the sounds of scampering in the walls or around the house you might have rats. Lives up to one year. Certain first-generation anticoagulants are registered as tracking powders for roof rat control; however, none of the second generation materials are so registered. Seal any openings larger than ¼ inch with caulk, wood, mesh, or other appropriate materials. Presently, only one such modified trap is commercially available.

  • What Are Rats?

  • Rat Infestation

  • Clean Up and Damage Repair

Roof rats are prodigious breeders. Like the Norway rat, the roof rat is implicated in the transmission of a number of diseases to humans, including murine typhus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis (food poisoning), rat-bite fever, and plague. Rat treatment involves both non-chemical and chemical methods. I highly recommend snap traps, not live cage traps, certainly not glue boards, and most definitely not poison! Never poison rats, it doesn't solve the problem and it just creates more problems. Other vegetable, melon, berry, and fruit crops occasionally suffer relatively minor damage when adjacent to infested habitat such as riparian vegetation. Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control. However, rats are a nuisance animal wherever you choose to release them, and they also have a particularly low rate of survival once they have been relocated, so in most cases using humane lethal traps will be the best way to deal with the infestation. Lethal control often combines the use of rodenticides with non-toxic control measures such as snap traps or glue boards.
