  • What are Rats?

Eliminate vines growing on buildings and, when feasible, overhanging tree limbs that may be used as travel routes. Rub Marks As rats move from one location to another, they stay close to vertical surfaces in their environment that they use to assist in their nightly navigation. Although roof rats have not yet been connected to HPS, everyone is advised to use caution when dealing with an infestation. However, a few differences must be taken into account. They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source. For example, only zinc phosphide can be applied on the ground to control rats in sugarcane or macadamia orchards, and the second-generation anticoagulants, cholecalciferol and bromethalin, can be used only in and around buildings, not around crops or away from buildings even in non crop situations. Labels will specify where and under what conditions the bait can be used. The Norway rat is generally considered the most important rat in the United States.

  • Do rats dig holes? Do they burrow under houses? How deep?

While rats can live in the walls, the kitchen, under the house, etc. the most common place for rats to inhabit in a house is the attic. Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways. As mentioned above, roof rats prefer above ground nesting locations in shrubs, trees, and dense vegetation. Roof rats usually require water daily, though their local diet may provide an adequate amount if it is high in water content. Rats have acute hearing and can readily detect noises. These techniques include improving sanitation for the affected location, eliminating hiding places, exclusion and may also include lethal methods such as traps and rodenticides. They also consume seeds, nuts, berries, and insects. Many rats may cache or hoard considerable amounts of solid food, which they eat later.

They may not be effective on roof rats, however, because of their usual placement. I'm not going to go into detail about harnesses and chicken ladders and such, but be careful! Then, when in the attic, wear a respirator - you don't want to breathe in fiberglass insulation, dust or mold, or the variety of diseases associated with rats. Once established, they readily breed and thrive within buildings, just as Norway rats do. Roof rats are not accomplished swimmers and are not usually found in sewers. In agricultural settings, weasels, foxes, coyotes, and other predators prey on roof rats, but their take is inconsequential as a population control factor. Also, carry out a visual examination of the attic to find the holes they were using to get in and out of the attic. Pocket gopher box-type traps (such as the DK-2 Gopher Getter) can be modified to catch rats by reversing the action of the trigger. They can successfully mate throughout the year, meaning that if you have rats in the attic, then there is a good possibility that they will have a nest of baby rats that you will need to deal with as well.
