Rats may live up to three years, but a lifespan of one and a half years is more common. Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption. Roof rats will often move into sugarcane and citrus groves. They often eat all the pulp from oranges while the fruit is still hanging on the tree, leaving only the empty rind. The preferred habitat of Norway rats is just about anywhere people reside. A new second-generation anticoagulant, difethialone, is presently being developed and EPA registration is anticipated in the near future. The smallest imperfections during the construction and roofing of a home can lead to a rat infestation. For example, only zinc phosphide can be applied on the ground to control rats in sugarcane or macadamia orchards, and the second-generation anticoagulants, cholecalciferol and bromethalin, can be used only in and around buildings, not around crops or away from buildings even in non crop situations.

Lethal control often combines the use of rodenticides with non-toxic control measures such as snap traps or glue boards. 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. Rats are easier to exclude than mice because rats a typically larger. They may be frightened by sound-producing devices for awhile but they become accustomed to constant and frequently repeated sounds quickly. The preferred habitat of Norway rats is just about anywhere people reside. The commercially available, expanded plastic treadle traps, such as the Victor Professional Rat Trap, are particularly effective if properly located in well-traveled paths. Sometimes rats get into the kitchen area and feed on stored foods. A rat does not want to be exposed to danger outside for very long! If you think you can just seal shut the entry holes into the house during the daylight when they are outside, that is incorrect.

It actually makes it worse, because the rats are multiplying, dying, defecating, destroying insulation, chewing wires and chewing air ducts, while you wait for your next service. Use proper garbage and refuse disposal containers and implement exterior sanitation programs. Avoid using poison and glue traps, as these are inhumane and cause more problems than they solve. We service 99% of the USA. Snap traps are actually the very best way to do it. If you do it wrong the first time, you'll just end up paying more later. Within a population, some rats will be easy to control, some difficult. If living under a refrigerator or freezer, they may disable the unit by gnawing the electrical wires.
