Overhead trap sets are particularly useful for roof rats. Many rats may cache or hoard considerable amounts of solid food, which they eat later. Roof rats are adept climbers and not surprisingly are apt to build their nests in locations above ground. Sounds Noises produced by scurrying rats, scratching in the walls or other noises from nest building may tip off the property owner to a rat problem. ALWAYS USE RESPIRATORY PROTECTION WHEN REMOVING RODENT DROPPINGS. Emphasis should be placed on the removal of as much harborage as is practical. Use a powerful flashlight to spot rats and to determine travel routes for the best locations to set baits and traps. Severe pruning and/or removal of certain ornamentals are often required to obtain a degree of lasting rat control.

  • What are Rats?

The Norway rat is generally considered the most important rat in the United States. It is found in every state. They are nocturnal by nature and are accomplished climbers. Unless the suitability of the rat’s habitat is destroyed by modifying the landscaping, improving sanitation, and rat-proofing, control methods must be unrelenting if they are to be effective. When practical, remove extraneous vegetation adjacent to the crop that may provide shelter for rats. Newer rodenticides are much more efficacious and have resulted in the phasing out of these older materials over the last 20 years. The roof rat is more at home in warm climates, and apparently less adaptable, than the Norway rat, which is why it has not spread throughout the country. They often eat all the pulp from oranges while the fruit is still hanging on the tree, leaving only the empty rind.

Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures. A preferred categorization would be “anticoagulants” and “non-anticoagulants” or “other rodenticides. They usually don't leave the attic for very long. 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. Leptospirosis - a disease transmitted from contact with rat urine that is serious enough to cause humans to bleed in the lungs. The number of litters depends on the area and varies with nearness to the limit of their climatic range, availability of nutritious food, density of the local rat population, and the age of the rat. They may also enter through ill-fitted doors, windows, or screens, and air vents that are not in sound or working order. Use proper garbage and refuse disposal containers and implement exterior sanitation programs.
