Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control.
Once established, they readily breed and thrive within buildings, just as Norway rats do.
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.
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.
They are sometimes found living in rice fields or around poultry or other farm buildings as well as in industrial sites where food and shelter are available.
Usually the peaks in breeding occur in the spring and fall.
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:
If living under a refrigerator or freezer, they may disable the unit by gnawing the electrical wires.
Distinctions must be made as to which rodenticide (registered product) to use, the method of application or placement, and the amount of bait to apply.
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.
The number of litters depends on the area and varies with nearness to the limit of their climatic range, availability of nutritious food, density of the local rat population, and the age of the rat.
These can be identified by the brown smudges of grease that comes from the rat's fur, and should all be sealed to prevent future rat infestations in the attic.
Mating generally peaks in the warmer months of the year, but may occur year round in some areas.
Neophobia is more pronounced in roof rats than in Norway rats.
They can often be seen at night running along overhead utility lines or fences.
Glue boards will catch roof rats, but, like traps, they must be located on beams, rafters, and along other travel routes, making them more difficult to place effectively for roof rats than for Norway rats or house mice.
rat 003Broken foundations, utility entries and vents can also be an obvious entry point.
The Norway rat is also called brown rat, house rat, sewer rat, and wharf rat.
Most of the states in the US interior are free of roof rats, but isolated infestations, probably stemming from infested cargo shipments, can occur.
You might find holes in walls and wood.
They do very well on feed provided for domestic animals such as swine, dairy cows, and chickens, as well as on dog and cat food.
Droppings are another good indicator of roof rat activity.
