Interior and exterior sanitation to minimize available food and water that supports a rat population. Keeping vegetation thinned out or removed from the perimeter of buildings. Attach rat guards to overhead utility wires and maintain them regularly. 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. Rats contaminating food or food preparation surfaces can transmit food poisoning. Traps should be placed flush with walls in areas of highest travel (as determined by Inspection). Roof rats have a strong tendency to avoid new objects in their environment and this neophobia can influence control efforts, for it may take several days before they will approach a bait station or trap. Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off of the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist.

When practical, remove extraneous vegetation adjacent to the crop that may provide shelter for rats. Sounds in the attic are often the first indication of the presence of roof rats in a residence. They are very strong, and can injure your fingers. The latter two were ineffective for roof rats. 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. Roof rats frequently enter buildings from the roof or from accesses near overhead utility lines, which they use to travel from area to area. Droppings are another good indicator of roof rat activity.

This type of rat control service does not ever solve the problem. These kill traps are often baited with whole nuts and are most useful in trapping rats in trees. The underside of the roof rat’s body is grayish to white. They may not be effective on roof rats, however, because of their usual placement. Between 9 and 14 days, their eyes open, and they begin to explore for food and move about near their nest. Anticoagulant paraffin-type bait blocks provide an alternative to bait stations containing pelleted or loose cereal bait. Bait stations are sometimes difficult to place for roof rat control because of the rodents’ overhead traveling characteristics. Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces.
