Females can breed year-round. Use proper garbage and refuse disposal containers and implement exterior sanitation programs. The young are able to breed before they are four months old. Tracks - Outdoors, the runways of Roof rats appear smooth, well packed, and free of vegetations. 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. They can transmit these diseases through physical contact, bites, by contamination or by fleas that are feeding on the rodent. 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. Visual sightings of live or dead rodents indicate rodent activity.

Also, be careful when setting snap traps. Walk only on the wooden beams in the attic, never the sheet rock, or you could fall through the ceiling! Be careful, an attic is a hazardous place, where it can be easy to fall, or poke a roofing nail in your head. Rats have acute hearing and can readily detect noises. Rats can squeeze into a hole the size of a quarter. They use their tails for balance while traveling along overhead utility lines. Any reputable nuisance wildlife company will have spent money on licensing, liability insurance, and a host of other business expenses. Roof rats are susceptible to all of the various anticoagulant rodenticides, but less so than Norway rats. Other vegetable, melon, berry, and fruit crops occasionally suffer relatively minor damage when adjacent to infested habitat such as riparian vegetation.

This type of rat control service does not ever solve the problem. Such caches may be found in a dismantled wood pile, attic, or behind boxes in a garage. 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. Rickettsial Diseases - various forms of Typhus fall into this category and can also be carried by rat-borne parasites. 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. Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences. Their presence is typically detected by the occurrence of their droppings, holes chewed into bags and containers, and chewed nesting materials. And most of all, you want someone who will do this complex work correctly.
