  • Black pepper and rats

  • Building Inspection and Rat-Proofing

Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways. Rats tend to segregate themselves socially in both space and time. The common wooden snap traps that are effective for Norway rats are effective for roof rats. Floor drains and sewer pipes should have tight-fitting grates with openings less than 1/4 inch in diameter. The key is to control rat populations, not individual rats. Bait stations are sometimes difficult to place for roof rat control because of the rodents’ overhead traveling characteristics. The social behavior of free-living roof rats is very difficult to study and, as a result, has received less attention than that of Norway rats. Traps should be placed flush with walls in areas of highest travel (as determined by Inspection).

Norway rats build their nests in underground burrows where they mate, rear their young, store food and seek refuge from predators.
