Okay, the first and most important thing you have to do is find out how rats are getting into the building.
Both roof rats and Norway rats have a well-developed sense of smell and are wary of new things that are introduced into their home range.
Citrus trees, having very low hanging skirts, are more prone to damage because they provide rats with protection.
They are usually a shiny black, but may vary according to diet.
Their presence is typically detected by the occurrence of their droppings, holes chewed into bags and containers, and chewed nesting materials.
Parks with natural and artificial ponds, or reservoirs may also be infested.
Listen for rat evidence, like their scurrying and running noises in the attic, and scratching in the walls.
The smallest imperfections during the construction and roofing of a home can lead to a rat infestation.
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.
They are constantly exploring surroundings and notice changes and are suspicious by nature.
The fumigation of structures, truck trailers, or rail cars should only be done by a licensed pest control operator who is trained in fumigation techniques.
The older rodenticides, formerly referred to as acute toxicants, such as arsenic, phosphorus, red squill, and ANTU, are either no longer registered or of little importance in rat control.
A few baits are strong enough to cause death with a single feeding.
They can successfully mate throughout the year, meaning that if you have rats in the attic, then there is a good possibility that they will have a nest of baby rats that you will need to deal with as well.
Rickettsial Diseases - various forms of Typhus fall into this category and can also be carried by rat-borne parasites.
Bait stations are sometimes difficult to place for roof rat control because of the rodents’ overhead traveling characteristics.
Seal any openings larger than ¼ inch with caulk, wood, mesh, or other appropriate materials.
Rodent-proofing against roof rats usually requires more time to find entry points than for Norway rats because of their greater climbing ability.
