They may eat vegetation, but prefer to meat or meat-related wastes.
Trap at left is modified by fastening a piece of cardboard to expand its trigger size (traps with expanded treadles can also be purchased from several manufacturers).
Rats (especially Roof rats) are wary of new objects, new foods or changed in environment.
Roof rats have hairless, scaly tails that are longer than their heads and bodies.
They are nocturnal by nature and are accomplished climbers.
Droppings are another good indicator of roof rat activity.
Their use for roof rats is limited to control within structures because roof rats rarely produce burrows.
Many rats may cache or hoard considerable amounts of solid food, which they eat later.
Sometimes they transmit disease indirectly, for example, when fleas first bite an infected rat, then a person.
Landscaped residential or industrial areas provide good habitat, as does riparian vegetation of riverbanks and streams.
You will never solve a rat problem until you find all of these openings, and seal them shut with steel, which rats are unable to chew through.
Please also read the section on Sanitation, as it is an important consideration in rodent control.
PLEASE read my how to trap a rat guide for good tips and methods on proper rat trapping.
To prevent a colony from nesting in your home, make sure that all the windows and vents are screened.
I highly recommend snap traps, not live cage traps, certainly not glue boards, and most definitely not poison! Never poison rats, it doesn't solve the problem and it just creates more problems.
They are very strong, and can injure your fingers.
Sightings & Sounds - Since rodents are nocturnal and live secretively under normal circumstances, you can be sure that regular daytime rodent sightings indicate a heavy infestation.
Rats may carry viruses such as Hantavirus and salmonella, and although they can also be a carrier of bubonic plague, that disease is not indigenous in the USA.
In homes, the attic and garage rafters close to the infestation are the best trapping sites.
In some situations, pet food and poorly managed garbage may represent a major food resource.
Baiting - This method uses poisons, or rodenticides, to attract and kill rodents.
Lights (flashing or continuously on) may repel rats at first, but rats will quickly acclimate to them.
Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species.
Once you know the location of the rats, you can set traps or place bait.
