How to Get Rid of Rats

  • Dealing With Roof Rat Problems

Rats are nocturnal and are not commonly seen. The roof rat is more at home in warm climates, and apparently less adaptable, than the Norway rat, which is why it has not spread throughout the country. Should Norway rats infest a structure, they most likely will live in the basement or ground floor. From causing plague epidemics (the "Black Death" of Europe) to rat-bite fever, whether feeding on stored grain or gnawing electric wires, rats are enemies of humankind. You hear the scratching rodents in your attic at night, correct? So you might assume that the rats are entering your attic at night. If rats are seen during the day that usually means a very large rodent population is nearby. The great adaptability of rats to human-created environments and the high fertility rate of rats make for quick recuperation of their populations. Most information on this subject comes from populations confined in cages or outdoor pens.

Control of roof rat damage in agriculture represents yet another scenario. Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits. If roof rats are seen exposed, it often indicates their hiding spaces are all filled by other rats or that they have been disturbed, such as by construction. Where legal and not hazardous, shooting of roof rats is effective at dusk as they travel along utility lines. There are holes all over - missing roof vent screens, plumbing stacks, gaps between the roof and fascia board, gaps in the siding, areas where pipes go into the house, etc. They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source. This is a great supplementary treatment to trapping when you are dealing with larger rodent populations, or for outdoor populations. If you do it wrong the first time, you'll just end up paying more later.

They approach new food or object with caution. For best results, try several baits to find out which one rats consume most. If rats are seen during the day that usually means a very large rodent population is nearby. In dense populations, roof rats will establish a social hierarchy, wherein dominant males mate more than subordinate males. In some situations in which the rats have been eliminated, cats that are good hunters may prevent reinfestation. Roof Rats can enter homes and other structures through openings as small as ½ inch. The product label is the law and dictates the product’s location of use and use patterns. Specifications may vary depending on bait manufacturer even though the active ingredient may be the same.
