To prevent a colony from nesting in your home, make sure that all the windows and vents are screened. If you have rats in your home, it's very important to do the job right the first time!

In residences where rats may be living in the attic and feeding outdoors, the damage may be restricted to tearing up insulation for nesting or gnawing electrical wiring. A preferred categorization would be “anticoagulants” and “non-anticoagulants” or “other rodenticides. In residences where rats may be living in the attic and feeding outdoors, the damage may be restricted to tearing up insulation for nesting or gnawing electrical wiring. Roof rats are not accomplished swimmers and are not usually found in sewers. Roof rats have a strong tendency to avoid new objects in their environment and this neophobia can influence control efforts, for it may take several days before they will approach a bait station or trap. The advantages of trapping when compared to baiting include: 1) Trapping does not require the use of harmful poisons; 2) Trapping allows the user to know whether the rat was killed, whereas with baiting the rat will wander off and die somewhere else; 3) Trapping eliminates odor problems by allowing you to dispose of the rat carcass.

  • Are cage traps a good option for rats?

In controlling roof rats with rodenticides, a sharp distinction must be made between control in and around buildings and control away from buildings such as in landfills and dumps, along drainage ditches and streams, in sewer water evaporation ponds, and in parks. It is difficult to find suitable places to lay the tracking powder that will not create a potential problem of contaminating food or materials below the placement sites.

Removing clutter and any debris that creates hiding places rats can use as harborage sites. Rats tend to segregate themselves socially in both space and time.

  • Information on Pack Rats and Roof Rats

Roof rats have hairless, scaly tails that are longer than their heads and bodies. Successful long-term rat control is not simple. You can't ignore wildlife problems, because of the damage and health risks that rats cause. They also consume seeds, nuts, berries, and insects. Generally, Roof rats stay within 100 miles inland. Although roof rats have not yet been connected to HPS, everyone is advised to use caution when dealing with an infestation. In most of our urban areas, Norway rats may be seen scurrying around after dark looking for food in garbage cans and other places where human refuse is found. If roof rats are seen exposed, it often indicates their hiding spaces are all filled by other rats or that they have been disturbed, such as by construction.
