  • What Do Rats Eat?

Rats, like mice, are omnivorous rodents. Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics. Their tails are longer than the rest of their body and are uniformly dark colored. 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. Caution should be taken to avoid trapping nontarget species such as tree squirrels. Always be sure that fresh bait is available continuously until rats stop feeding. In agricultural settings, weasels, foxes, coyotes, and other predators prey on roof rats, but their take is inconsequential as a population control factor. Roof rats can also nest on the ground if necessary.

Tracking powders are used much less often for roof rats than for Norway rats because roof rats frequent overhead areas within buildings. Use a powerful flashlight to spot rats and to determine travel routes for the best locations to set baits and traps. Shooting is rarely effective by itself and should be done in conjunction with trapping or baiting programs. Rats will also drag their tails, leaving a mark between their feet tracks. Rat treatment involves both non-chemical and chemical methods. Norway rats and the roof rats are very different in their habits, habitats and behavior, so the first requirement of a rat treatment program is to correctly identify the rat and develop a treatment plan that works for that species. Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways. When necessary, roof rats will travel considerable distances (100 to 300 feet [30 to 90 m]) for food.

Droppings - Roof Rat droppings are 1/4 to 1/2 inch in length, capsule shaped, with blunt ends. Also, Norway rats may prey upon fish, poultry, mice, birds, small reptiles and amphibians. High-frequency sound-producing devices are advertised for frightening rats, but almost no research exists on their effects specifically on roof rats. Out-of-doors, roof rats may be present in low to moderate numbers with little sign in the way of tracks or droppings or runs and burrows. Check the traps periodically, remove any dead trapped rats, and reset the traps. Prune to raise the skirts and remove any nests constructed in the trees. Specifications may vary depending on bait manufacturer even though the active ingredient may be the same. In the third week they begin to take solid food.
