Droppings are another good indicator of roof rat activity.
Norway rats are also omnivores and will eat just about anything that is found near where humans discard food.
Roof rats also have an excellent sense of balance.
Use a powerful flashlight to spot rats and to determine travel routes for the best locations to set baits and traps.
Most commercial baits are registered for both species of rats and for house mice, but often they are less acceptable to roof rats than to the other species.
PLEASE read my how to trap a rat guide for good tips and methods on proper rat trapping.
Always be sure that fresh bait is available continuously until rats stop feeding.
Then the rats should be trapped and removed.
The more dominant individuals occupy the better habitats and feed whenever they like, whereas the less fortunate individuals may have to occupy marginal habitat and feed when the more dominant rats are not present.
Norway rats are usually active at dusk or during the night and are inactive during daylight hours.
Norway rats and the roof rats are very different in their habits, habitats and behavior, so the first requirement of a rat treatment program is to correctly identify the rat and develop a treatment plan that works for that species.
Rats, like mice, are omnivorous rodents.
Norway rats are also polygamous and form colonies of many males and females.
Statisticians estimate that rats destroy 20 percent of the world's food supply every year by feeding, and indirectly through contamination.
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.
Successful long-term rat control is not simple.
Glue boards will catch roof rats, but, like traps, they must be located on beams, rafters, and along other travel routes, making them more difficult to place effectively for roof rats than for Norway rats or house mice.
Their burrowing habitats include soil along building foundations, under woodpiles and other piles of debris.
Rats rely more on their keen senses of smell, taste, touch, and hearing than on vision.
Norway rats are common around human residences and industrial and commercial areas.
Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences.
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.
