  • How to Stop Roof Rat Damage

Rats are easier to exclude than mice because rats a typically larger. It is unlikely, however, they will be any more effective for roof rats than for Norway rats. Certain first-generation anticoagulants are registered as tracking powders for roof rat control; however, none of the second generation materials are so registered. However, a few differences must be taken into account. Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything. There are still outbreaks of plague in the United States and around the world today. You can't ignore wildlife problems, because of the damage and health risks that rats cause. Young rats generally cannot be trapped until about 1 month old.

The most common rat in the area is the Norway rat. Observation Rats are not usually seen during the day unless disturbed from their protective harborage or because of intolerable competition from other rats. Pelleted or loose cereal anticoagulant baits are used extensively in tamper-resistant bait boxes or stations for a permanent baiting program for Norway rats and house mice. Droppings Rats produce a lot of feces and the presence of their fecal droppings is a surefire way to spot an infestation. Where an entire warehouse may be fumigated for insect control with a material such as methyl bromide, all rats and mice that are present will be killed. Should Norway rats infest a structure, they most likely will live in the basement or ground floor. In tree crops, some cultural practices can be helpful. Trim all tree branches to further prevent entry.

Interior and exterior sanitation to minimize available food and water that supports a rat population. In urban settings, cats and owls prey on roof rats but have little if any effect on well-established populations. It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing. Certain first-generation anticoagulants are registered as tracking powders for roof rat control; however, none of the second generation materials are so registered. 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. A new second-generation anticoagulant, difethialone, is presently being developed and EPA registration is anticipated in the near future. See Rat Trapping Tips and Rat Baiting Tips. Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics.
