They prefer gnawing on wood but may also damage property, electrical wiring, and food packaging. In residences where rats may be living in the attic and feeding outdoors, the damage may be restricted to tearing up insulation for nesting or gnawing electrical wiring. The advantages of trapping when compared to baiting include: 1) Trapping does not require the use of harmful poisons; 2) Trapping allows the user to know whether the rat was killed, whereas with baiting the rat will wander off and die somewhere else; 3) Trapping eliminates odor problems by allowing you to dispose of the rat carcass. 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. Other indicators can include grease marks along surfaces as well as nests. Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures. The muzzle of the roof rat is pointed and the overall appearance of the roof rat is much more streamlined and sleek looking than a Norway rat. The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors.

Excellent climber that can often be found in the upper parts of structures. You don't want to over-pay of course. Specifications may vary depending on bait manufacturer even though the active ingredient may be the same. Adult females are able to reproduce at 3-5 months old, can produce up to five litters each year with about 5-8 young in each litter. Their tails are longer than the rest of their body and are uniformly dark colored. Because of the diseases they can carry, you should also check up on the equipment that you will need to safely trap the rats without any risk to your health. 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.

Rub Marks As rats move from one location to another, they stay close to vertical surfaces in their environment that they use to assist in their nightly navigation. Body is smaller and sleeker than the Norway rat’s. It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing. 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. Roof rats are not protected by law and can be controlled any time with mechanical or chemical methods. They prefer gnawing on wood but may also damage property, electrical wiring, and food packaging. In a human environment, the rodents will consume almost any food to which they have access. Rats are nocturnal and are not commonly seen.
