  • The Invasion Of Roof Rats

Adult roof rats usually live about one year. Within a population, some rats will be easy to control, some difficult. In homes, the attic and garage rafters close to the infestation are the best trapping sites. They need not be baited. They do very well on feed provided for domestic animals such as swine, dairy cows, and chickens, as well as on dog and cat food. Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient. They may live in the landscaping of one residence and feed at another. All anticoagulants provide excellent roof rat control when prepared in acceptable baits.

They may be frightened by sound-producing devices for awhile but they become accustomed to constant and frequently repeated sounds quickly. At present there are three rodenticides—zinc phosphide, cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), and bromethalin—registered and available for roof rat control. Snap traps are actually the very best way to do it. Rats are nocturnal and are not commonly seen. They are usually a shiny black, but may vary according to diet.
