Exclusion is an important rodent control technique.
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.
Labels will specify where and under what conditions the bait can be used.
The smallest imperfections during the construction and roofing of a home can lead to a rat infestation.
In some situations, pet food and poorly managed garbage may represent a major food resource.
Traps may be nailed to beams or studs and secured to pipes with wires.
Also, roof rats are likely to consume insects.
Control methods must reflect an understanding of the roof rat’s habitat requirements, reproductive capabilities, food habits, life history, behavior, senses, movements, and the dynamics of its population structure.
Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics.
At birth they are hairless, and their eyes are closed.
Knowledge is limited on interspecific competition between the different genera and species of rats.
They also consume seeds, nuts, berries, and insects.
The commercially available, expanded plastic treadle traps, such as the Victor Professional Rat Trap, are particularly effective if properly located in well-traveled paths.
Tracks - Outdoors, the runways of Roof rats appear smooth, well packed, and free of vegetations.
