Tunnel boxes or bait boxes specially designed to expose a layer of toxic powder will reduce potential contamination problems and may actually increase effectiveness.
Newer rodenticides are much more efficacious and have resulted in the phasing out of these older materials over the last 20 years.
These rodents have been known to consume tree bark, meat and grain.
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.
Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics.
Tracking powders play an important role in structural rodent control.
If the food is in an exposed area and too large to be eaten quickly, but not too large to be moved, they will usually carry it to a hiding place before eating it.
The Norway rat is generally considered the most important rat in the United States.
Seal any openings larger than ¼ inch with caulk, wood, mesh, or other appropriate materials.
Some of the more important diseases associated with rats include Rat-Bite Fever and Leptospirosis.
Rats may live up to three years, but a lifespan of one and a half years is more common.
Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures.
The adequate inspection of a large facility for the presence and location of roof rats often requires a nighttime search when the facility is normally shut down.
In situations where rats are not controlled with conventional products, fumigation of transport vehicles or rat ground burrows may sometimes be needed.
You will never solve a rat problem until you find all of these openings, and seal them shut with steel, which rats are unable to chew through.
This type of rat control service does not ever solve the problem.
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.
It is unlikely, however, they will be any more effective for roof rats than for Norway rats.
Severe pruning and/or removal of certain ornamentals are often required to obtain a degree of lasting rat control.
They are nocturnal by nature and are accomplished climbers.
Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits.
Other rat signs may also assist, but be aware that both species may be present.
Rat control requires an integrated approach that includes non-lethal tools such as careful inspections, upgraded sanitation, and rat-proofing structures.
You can often find smudges as an indication of rats, but they can often stay on walls for a long time, so it might be from an old infestation.
