  • Dealing With Roof Rat Problems

Indoors, runways appear as clean paths through dust or dirt. The social behavior of free-living roof rats is very difficult to study and, as a result, has received less attention than that of Norway rats. In agricultural settings, weasels, foxes, coyotes, and other predators prey on roof rats, but their take is inconsequential as a population control factor. Within a year, one female may be responsible for up to 40 new rodents. Rodent-proofing against roof rats usually requires more time to find entry points than for Norway rats because of their greater climbing ability. 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. Make sure that all doors, windows and screens fit tightly in their frames and repair those that do not. Most of the states in the US interior are free of roof rats, but isolated infestations, probably stemming from infested cargo shipments, can occur.

The social behavior of free-living roof rats is very difficult to study and, as a result, has received less attention than that of Norway rats. Observation Rats are not usually seen during the day unless disturbed from their protective harborage or because of intolerable competition from other rats. Rub Marks As rats move from one location to another, they stay close to vertical surfaces in their environment that they use to assist in their nightly navigation. ALWAYS USE RESPIRATORY PROTECTION WHEN REMOVING RODENT DROPPINGS. Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource. A preferred categorization would be “anticoagulants” and “non-anticoagulants” or “other rodenticides. Once you're satisfied that there is no more evidence of rats, and you are not trapping any new rats, you should clean the attic or whatever area they were living in, to remove the contamination and biohazard, and also to eliminate the rat scent, which will attract new rats to try to chew their way into the house in the future.
