They do very well on feed provided for domestic animals such as swine, dairy cows, and chickens, as well as on dog and cat food. Seal any openings larger than ¼ inch with caulk, wood, mesh, or other appropriate materials. Timing a sealup for rats is impossible, because they leave for short periods, and they don't all leave at the same time of night. 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. Tracking powders.

  • Baiting Tips for Roof Rats

The reproductive potential of one female Norway rat is about 50-60 young per year. At present there are three rodenticides—zinc phosphide, cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), and bromethalin—registered and available for roof rat control. 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. Within a rat colony, they may be a few rats that are extra cautious and manage to avoid traps or eating rodent baits. 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. Liquid baits may be an effective alternative in situations where normal baits are not readily accepted, especially where water is scarce or where rats must travel some distance to reach water. The Norway rat produces six to eight litters of six to nine young per year. The ears and tail are nearly hairless and they are typically 12 to 18 inches long including the tail and weigh 10 to 16 ounces.

Where an entire warehouse may be fumigated for insect control with a material such as methyl bromide, all rats and mice that are present will be killed. Such caches may be found in a dismantled wood pile, attic, or behind boxes in a garage. Some of the more important diseases associated with rats include Rat-Bite Fever and Leptospirosis. 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. These diseases often share similar symptoms, and medical professionals must perform the proper diagnoses. Exclusion and sealing of sites greater than ½ inch (about the size of a dime) using screens, flashing, door sweeps and other materials to keep rats from entering a structure.
