Breeding seasons vary in different areas.
While you will not reasonably be able to compensate for every possible rodent entry, you can greatly reduce the ease of entry for rodents (and thereby, reduce the population size) by taking the following measures:
Then they return to the attic.
Roof Rats can enter homes and other structures through openings as small as ½ inch.
Once established, they readily breed and thrive within buildings, just as Norway rats do.
Roof rats usually require water daily, though their local diet may provide an adequate amount if it is high in water content.
Historically, infected fleas have transmitted serious plagues from rats to humans.
In sugarcane, they move into the field as the cane matures and feed on the cane stalks.
Other vegetable, melon, berry, and fruit crops occasionally suffer relatively minor damage when adjacent to infested habitat such as riparian vegetation.
Breeding seasons vary in different areas.
The 5 to 8 young in the litter develop rapidly, growing hair within a week.
The first and most crucial thing is to inspect the house and find all possible entry holes, and before starting any trapping, carry out repairs and seal the attic so the rats can't get in again.
A control operation, therefore, must reduce numbers to a very low level; otherwise, rats will not only reproduce rapidly, but often quickly exceed their former density for a short period of time.
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.
Rats are easier to exclude than mice because rats a typically larger.
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.
Rats may carry viruses such as Hantavirus and salmonella, and although they can also be a carrier of bubonic plague, that disease is not indigenous in the USA.
Lives up to one year.
Like the Norway rat, the roof rat is implicated in the transmission of a number of diseases to humans, including murine typhus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis (food poisoning), rat-bite fever, and plague.
Prune to raise the skirts and remove any nests constructed in the trees.
Anticoagulant paraffin-type bait blocks provide an alternative to bait stations containing pelleted or loose cereal bait.
Place traps where they will intercept rats on their way to food, such as on overhead beams, pipes, ledges, or sills frequently used as travel routes (Fig.
Other indicators can include grease marks along surfaces as well as nests.
Burrows Or Nests Holes in the ground around foundations, plus nests in attics or trees are evidence of a rat problem.
