Dealing With Roof Rat Problems

  • Baiting Tips for Mice

Roof rats leave a hind foot track of about 3/4-1 inch. Use proper garbage and refuse disposal containers and implement exterior sanitation programs. When practical, remove extraneous vegetation adjacent to the crop that may provide shelter for rats. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide. Gnawing holes - Gnawing holes from Roof rats are about 2 inches or more in diameter and will have rough edges. Tunnel boxes or bait boxes specially designed to expose a layer of toxic powder will reduce potential contamination problems and may actually increase effectiveness. They move faster than Norway rats and are very agile climbers, which enables them to quickly escape predators. 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.

  • Rat Repellents

When rodent-proofing against roof rats, pay close attention to the roof and roof line areas to assure all accesses are closed. Pocket gopher box-type traps (such as the DK-2 Gopher Getter) can be modified to catch rats by reversing the action of the trigger. If you need to hire professional help, you can call us. Exclusion is an important rodent control technique. However, a few differences must be taken into account. Roof rats are adept climbers and not surprisingly are apt to build their nests in locations above ground. In homes, the attic and garage rafters close to the infestation are the best trapping sites. Proper ladder safety is a must, as is roof safety.

They may not be effective on roof rats, however, because of their usual placement. 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: 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. A new second-generation anticoagulant, difethialone, is presently being developed and EPA registration is anticipated in the near future. Rats will also drag their tails, leaving a mark between their feet tracks. Their tails are longer than the rest of their body and are uniformly dark colored. Traps should be placed flush with walls in areas of highest travel (as determined by Inspection). Citrus trees, having very low hanging skirts, are more prone to damage because they provide rats with protection.
