Trapping is the preferred method of indoor control.
Certain first-generation anticoagulants are registered as tracking powders for roof rat control; however, none of the second generation materials are so registered.
Generally, a few more feedings are necessary to produce death with the first-generation anticoagulants (warfarin, pindone, diphacinone, and chlorophacinone) but this is less significant with the second-generation anticoagulants (bromadiolone and brodifacoum).
Rat densities (numbers of rats in a given area) are determined primarily by the suitability of the habitat—the amount of available nutritional and palatable food and nearby protective cover (shelter or harborage).
High-frequency sound-producing devices are advertised for frightening rats, but almost no research exists on their effects specifically on roof rats.
Floor drains and sewer pipes should have tight-fitting grates with openings less than 1/4 inch in diameter.
ALWAYS USE RESPIRATORY PROTECTION WHEN REMOVING RODENT DROPPINGS.
Roof Rats are commonly called black rats and are smaller than Norway rats.
Newer rodenticides are much more efficacious and have resulted in the phasing out of these older materials over the last 20 years.
One of the more common techniques for bait use is to place the bait formulation in a tamper proof rodent bait station that protects the bait from accidental exposure to non-target animals or people.
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.
Roof rats can also enter openings in walls, eaves and roof from the branches of trees.
The adequate inspection of a large facility for the presence and location of roof rats often requires a nighttime search when the facility is normally shut down.
Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences.
Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions.
Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off of the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist.
At birth they are hairless, and their eyes are closed.
