What Are Rats?

Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits. 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 latter two were ineffective for roof rats. This is why traps and bait stations may be avoided for a day or two. Landscaped residential or industrial areas provide good habitat, as does riparian vegetation of riverbanks and streams. Rats may carry viruses such as Hantavirus and salmonella, and although they can also be a carrier of bubonic plague, that disease is not indigenous in the USA. Tracking powders can be placed in voids behind walls, near points of entry, and in well-defined trails. Emphasis should be placed on the removal of as much harborage as is practical.

They also feed on a variety of vegetative parts of ornamental and native plant materials. Inspection is an important first step in getting rid of rats. Tunnel boxes or bait boxes specially designed to expose a layer of toxic powder will reduce potential contamination problems and may actually increase effectiveness. Other indicators can include grease marks along surfaces as well as nests. Read more about where rats live. 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. Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways. They do very well on feed provided for domestic animals such as swine, dairy cows, and chickens, as well as on dog and cat food.

If living under a refrigerator or freezer, they may disable the unit by gnawing the electrical wires. The Norway rat is also called brown rat, house rat, sewer rat, and wharf rat. Control of roof rat damage in agriculture represents yet another scenario. There is often a correlation between rat problems and the keeping of dogs, especially where dogs are fed outdoors. Roof rats can be controlled with the same baits used for Norway rats. The smallest imperfections during the construction and roofing of a home can lead to a rat infestation. While they may not kill the stalk outright, secondary organisms generally invade and reduce the sugar quality. They usually don't leave the attic for very long.
