  • Are cage traps a good option for rats?

Although roof rats have not yet been connected to HPS, everyone is advised to use caution when dealing with an infestation. In controlling roof rats with rodenticides, a sharp distinction must be made between control in and around buildings and control away from buildings such as in landfills and dumps, along drainage ditches and streams, in sewer water evaporation ponds, and in parks. Snails are a favorite food, but don’t expect roof rats to eliminate a garden snail problem. In general, glue boards are more effective for house mice than for either of the rat species. Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions. From causing plague epidemics (the "Black Death" of Europe) to rat-bite fever, whether feeding on stored grain or gnawing electric wires, rats are enemies of humankind. Tracking powders are used much less often for roof rats than for Norway rats because roof rats frequent overhead areas within buildings. These rodents have been known to consume tree bark, meat and grain.

The product label is the law and dictates the product’s location of use and use patterns. See Rat Trapping Tips and Rat Baiting Tips. The older rodenticides, formerly referred to as acute toxicants, such as arsenic, phosphorus, red squill, and ANTU, are either no longer registered or of little importance in rat control. Observation Rats are not usually seen during the day unless disturbed from their protective harborage or because of intolerable competition from other rats. A new second-generation anticoagulant, difethialone, is presently being developed and EPA registration is anticipated in the near future. Once you know the location of the rats, you can set traps or place bait. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide. Out-of-doors, roof rats may be present in low to moderate numbers with little sign in the way of tracks or droppings or runs and burrows.

  • Will a rat in the attic have a nest of babies?

In tropical or semi tropical regions, the season may be nearly year-round. Emphasis should be placed on the removal of as much harborage as is practical. Also, carry out a visual examination of the attic to find the holes they were using to get in and out of the attic. 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. In urban settings, cats and owls prey on roof rats but have little if any effect on well-established populations. However, a few differences must be taken into account. Roof rats are also food hoarders, stashing supplies of food such as seeds and nuts. In controlling roof rats with rodenticides, a sharp distinction must be made between control in and around buildings and control away from buildings such as in landfills and dumps, along drainage ditches and streams, in sewer water evaporation ponds, and in parks.
