Roof rats can also nest on the ground if necessary.
The Norway rat is generally considered the most important rat in the United States.
When rodent-proofing against roof rats, pay close attention to the roof and roof line areas to assure all accesses are closed.
The damage control methods used for roof rats are essentially the same as for Norway rats.
Roof rats are more aerial than Norway rats in their habitat selection and often live in trees or on vine-covered fences.
From causing plague epidemics (the "Black Death" of Europe) to rat-bite fever, whether feeding on stored grain or gnawing electric wires, rats are enemies of humankind.
They are sometimes found living in rice fields or around poultry or other farm buildings as well as in industrial sites where food and shelter are available.
Within a rat colony, they may be a few rats that are extra cautious and manage to avoid traps or eating rodent baits.
Norway rats are also polygamous and form colonies of many males and females.
Since roof rats rarely dig burrows, burrow fumigants are of limited use; however, if they have constructed burrows, then fumigants that are effective on Norway rats, such as aluminum phosphide and gas cartridges, will be effective on roof rats.
Rats that are captured should be humanely destroyed and not released elsewhere because of their role in disease transmission, damage potential, and detrimental effect on native wildlife.
The first step in controlling a roof rat infestation is to properly identify the rodents.
Most commercial baits are registered for both species of rats and for house mice, but often they are less acceptable to roof rats than to the other species.
Attach rat guards to overhead utility wires and maintain them regularly.
Our professional wildlife professionals may not show you how to kill the rats but instead use rat repellents, rat fumigants and rat trapping systems to ensure the effectiveness of the rat control method, without physically harming the rats.
Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species.
However, when a Norway rat population grows so large that competition from other rats for food, water and harborage increases, some members of the rat community may seek to find new areas to colonize during the daytime.
Norway rats are common around human residences and industrial and commercial areas.
They have also been found living in sewer systems, but this is not common.
Anticoagulant paraffin-type bait blocks provide an alternative to bait stations containing pelleted or loose cereal bait.
The commercially available, expanded plastic treadle traps, such as the Victor Professional Rat Trap, are particularly effective if properly located in well-traveled paths.
Therefore, the body oils on a rat’s fur gets deposited on corners and edges of walls and around holes and gaps they use to enter into a wall void.
Without this knowledge, both time and money are wasted, and the chances of failure are increased.
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.
