  • Will a rat chew through the ceiling?

Gnaw Marks Rat need to chew and gnaw on wood, plastic and other hard surfaces in order to keep their teeth chiseled down. Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures. Walk only on the wooden beams in the attic, never the sheet rock, or you could fall through the ceiling! Be careful, an attic is a hazardous place, where it can be easy to fall, or poke a roofing nail in your head. Some type of clean food can be used to entice the rats to the boxes, or the tracking powders can be used in conjunction with an anticoagulant bait, with both placed in the same station. Most commercial baits are registered for both species of rats and for house mice, but often they are less acceptable to roof rats than to the other species. In some agricultural areas, roof rats cause significant losses of tree crops such as citrus and avocados and, to a lesser extent, walnuts, almonds, and other nuts. Rodenticides were once categorized as acute (single-dose) or chronic (multiple dose) toxicants. Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species.

In food-storage facilities, the most prominent sign may be smudge marks, the result of oil and dirt rubbing off of their fur as they travel along their aerial routes. Roof rats are susceptible to all of the various anticoagulant rodenticides, but less so than Norway rats. However, rats are a nuisance animal wherever you choose to release them, and they also have a particularly low rate of survival once they have been relocated, so in most cases using humane lethal traps will be the best way to deal with the infestation. They are sometimes found living in rice fields or around poultry or other farm buildings as well as in industrial sites where food and shelter are available. Droppings - you might find these in places like cupboards, cabinets and other areas around the home where rats like to hide These tactics have been ruled fraudulent by the FTC, and they DO NOT WORK. I highly recommend snap traps, not live cage traps, certainly not glue boards, and most definitely not poison! Never poison rats, it doesn't solve the problem and it just creates more problems. Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species.

  • Do rats make good pets?

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). When everyone is asleep and the house is quiet, the rats can be heard scurrying about. Black or brown, can be over 40 cm long, with a long tail, large ears and eyes, and a pointed nose. Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits. The 5 to 8 young in the litter develop rapidly, growing hair within a week. Trap at left is modified by fastening a piece of cardboard to expand its trigger size (traps with expanded treadles can also be purchased from several manufacturers). Tracking powders play an important role in structural rodent control. The muzzle of the roof rat is pointed and the overall appearance of the roof rat is much more streamlined and sleek looking than a Norway rat.
