Pesticides must be registered for rat control by federal and/or state authorities and used in accordance with label directions.
Rat control requires an integrated approach that includes non-lethal tools such as careful inspections, upgraded sanitation, and rat-proofing structures.
Rub marks - rats get coated with dirt and they like to rub against the walls to find their way around a room’s perimeter, since they can't see so well.
The first and most crucial thing is to inspect the house and find all possible entry holes, and before starting any trapping, carry out repairs and seal the attic so the rats can't get in again.
METHOD OF CONTROL: First of all, mothballs or ammonia won't make them leave, nor will ultrasonic sound emitters or strobe lights.
If you do it wrong the first time, you'll just end up paying more later.
When necessary, roof rats will travel considerable distances (100 to 300 feet [30 to 90 m]) for food.
As their name suggests, roof rats may be found in elevated areas such as trees, rafters, attics and roofs.
These can be identified by the brown smudges of grease that comes from the rat's fur, and should all be sealed to prevent future rat infestations in the attic.
Without this knowledge, both time and money are wasted, and the chances of failure are increased.
As mentioned above, roof rats prefer above ground nesting locations in shrubs, trees, and dense vegetation.
Rats can squeeze into a hole the size of a quarter.
If living under a refrigerator or freezer, they may disable the unit by gnawing the electrical wires.
Because roof rats are fast and agile, they are not easy prey for mammalian or avian predators.
Roof Rats are predominate in coastal areas.
If you've sealed the house correctly, then you shouldn't trap any new rats after just the first three days.
It is unlikely, however, they will be any more effective for roof rats than for Norway rats.
Liquid baits may be an effective alternative in situations where normal baits are not readily accepted, especially where water is scarce or where rats must travel some distance to reach water.
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.
In some agricultural areas, roof rats cause significant losses of tree crops such as citrus and avocados and, to a lesser extent, walnuts, almonds, and other nuts.
The only way to solve a rat or mouse problem is to find every last point of entry into the house, and seal it shut.
It actually makes it worse, because the rats are multiplying, dying, defecating, destroying insulation, chewing wires and chewing air ducts, while you wait for your next service.
They prefer gnawing on wood but may also damage property, electrical wiring, and food packaging.
Some of the more important diseases associated with rats include Rat-Bite Fever and Leptospirosis.
