Control methods must reflect an understanding of the roof rat’s habitat requirements, reproductive capabilities, food habits, life history, behavior, senses, movements, and the dynamics of its population structure. Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics. Some of the more important non-chemical methods are: Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available. Roof rats range along the lower half of the East Coast and throughout the Gulf States upward into Arkansas. 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. Gnaw Marks Rat need to chew and gnaw on wood, plastic and other hard surfaces in order to keep their teeth chiseled down. That is not the case! They sleep in your attic all day, and then at dusk they wake up, and start moving around, and that's why you hear them after dark.

They can transmit these diseases through physical contact, bites, by contamination or by fleas that are feeding on the rodent. Roof rats are more aerial than Norway rats in their habitat selection and often live in trees or on vine-covered fences. Only construction grade materials are used. In rare instances, isolated populations are found in areas not within their normal distribution range in the United States. Bait stations are sometimes difficult to place for roof rat control because of the rodents’ overhead traveling characteristics. Roof rats are susceptible to all of the various anticoagulant rodenticides, but less so than Norway rats. The traditional style snap traps are still among the best ways of dealing with a rat problem, and these are simple to set and bait, and you should look to place them in areas where the rats are active, so where you can see feces and smudges on the walls. Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off of the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist.

Exclusion is an important rodent control technique. Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource. I'm not going to go into detail about harnesses and chicken ladders and such, but be careful! Then, when in the attic, wear a respirator - you don't want to breathe in fiberglass insulation, dust or mold, or the variety of diseases associated with rats. Some of the more important non-chemical methods are: Lethal control often combines the use of rodenticides with non-toxic control measures such as snap traps or glue boards. Use a powerful flashlight to spot rats and to determine travel routes for the best locations to set baits and traps. See Rat Trapping Tips and Rat Baiting Tips. Once you're satisfied that there is no more evidence of rats, and you are not trapping any new rats, you should clean the attic or whatever area they were living in, to remove the contamination and biohazard, and also to eliminate the rat scent, which will attract new rats to try to chew their way into the house in the future.
