Without this knowledge, both time and money are wasted, and the chances of failure are increased. This type of rat control service does not ever solve the problem. The whiskers and guard hairs enable the animals to travel adjacent to walls in the dark and in burrows. These kill traps are often baited with whole nuts and are most useful in trapping rats in trees. The young may continue to nurse until 4 or 5 weeks old. Rats may live up to three years, but a lifespan of one and a half years is more common. Pelleted or loose cereal anticoagulant baits are used extensively in tamper-resistant bait boxes or stations for a permanent baiting program for Norway rats and house mice. Burrows Or Nests Holes in the ground around foundations, plus nests in attics or trees are evidence of a rat problem.

Norway rats are common around human residences and industrial and commercial areas. They have also been found living in sewer systems, but this is not common. Roof rats are susceptible to all of the various anticoagulant rodenticides, but less so than Norway rats. The wildlife operator will seal shut all the rat entry points, and that's the ONLY way to solve a rat problem forever. In food-processing and food-storage facilities, roof rats do about the same type of damage as Norway rats, and damage is visually hard to differentiate. Nests inside and under buildings, or in piles of rubbish or wood. Rat control requires an integrated approach that includes non-lethal tools such as careful inspections, upgraded sanitation, and rat-proofing structures. 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.

Strip and destroy all unwanted fruit when the harvest period is over. Roof rats entering homes are generally found in raised or secure enclosures such as walls, cabinets, attics, and false ceilings. 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. Also, roof rats are likely to consume insects. No chemical repellents are specifically registered for rat control. They prefer to consume fruits (sometimes referred to as the “fruit rat” or “citrus rat”) and nuts, although roof rats are omnivorous and will feed on almost anything available to them. Rat control using chemical products involves baits designed to kill rats. In general, glue boards are more effective for house mice than for either of the rat species.
