Rats, like mice, are omnivorous rodents. Attach rat guards to overhead utility wires and maintain them regularly. Other rat signs may also assist, but be aware that both species may be present. Rats themselves - if you see one rat, there's a good chance there are a bunch more hiding in nests or burrows that you can't see. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide. Rats usually begin searching for food shortly after sunset. Within a year, one female may be responsible for up to 40 new rodents. The Norway rat produces six to eight litters of six to nine young per year.

Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide. The advantages of trapping when compared to baiting include: 1) Trapping does not require the use of harmful poisons; 2) Trapping allows the user to know whether the rat was killed, whereas with baiting the rat will wander off and die somewhere else; 3) Trapping eliminates odor problems by allowing you to dispose of the rat carcass. When everyone is asleep and the house is quiet, the rats can be heard scurrying about. Norway rats are also polygamous and form colonies of many males and females. Many rats may cache or hoard considerable amounts of solid food, which they eat later. Trapping is the preferred method of indoor control. Grease marks are produced as the rodent travels along an edge, and the oils in their fur are deposited. Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome is transferred via inhalation of rodent urine, droppings or saliva.

For the characteristics of the various anticoagulant rodenticides see Norway Rats. Listen for rat evidence, like their scurrying and running noises in the attic, and scratching in the walls. Roof rats are highly adaptable. Roof rats have a strong tendency to avoid new objects in their environment and this neophobia can influence control efforts, for it may take several days before they will approach a bait station or trap. If rats are seen during the day that usually means a very large rodent population is nearby. Where label instructions permit, small blocks can be placed or fastened on rafters, ledges, or even attached to tree limbs, where they are readily accessible to the arboreal rats. 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. That is very costly! Do the job ONCE by a wildlife operator, NOT A PEST CONTROL COMPANY, get it done, and you'll be rat-free forever.
