Rodent-proofing against roof rats usually requires more time to find entry points than for Norway rats because of their greater climbing ability.
Overhead trap sets are particularly useful for roof rats.
Read my comprehensive guide to rats in the attic.
Okay, the first and most important thing you have to do is find out how rats are getting into the building.
Norway rats are a common mammalian pest of rice, but sometimes roof rats also feed on newly planted seed or the seedling as it emerges.
Rats may live up to three years, but a lifespan of one and a half years is more common.
Make sure that all doors, windows and screens fit tightly in their frames and repair those that do not.
The nature of damage to outdoor vegetation can often provide clues as to whether it is caused by the roof or Norway rat.
The total cost will probably run between $300 - $500 to remove all the rats and seal the entry holes shut, and it may seem more up-front than a low monthly deal, but you've got to do it right, and then you won't have to worry about rats any more.
Both roof rats and Norway rats have a well-developed sense of smell and are wary of new things that are introduced into their home range.
Trapping is the preferred method of indoor control.
They are nocturnal by nature and are accomplished climbers.
There are several other types of lethal traps, including the crocodile trap, which has teeth that close on the rat, and even gas chamber traps.
The social behavior of free-living roof rats is very difficult to study and, as a result, has received less attention than that of Norway rats.
Our professional wildlife professionals may not show you how to kill the rats but instead use rat repellents, rat fumigants and rat trapping systems to ensure the effectiveness of the rat control method, without physically harming the rats.
Exclusion and sealing of sites greater than ½ inch (about the size of a dime) using screens, flashing, door sweeps and other materials to keep rats from entering a structure.
POISON IS A HORRIBLE IDEA FOR MANY MANY REASONS - poison won't solve the problem, and it'll just create more problems.
Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption.
Grease marks are produced as the rodent travels along an edge, and the oils in their fur are deposited.
They usually don't leave the attic for very long.
Roof rats are not accomplished swimmers and are not usually found in sewers.
Droppings - Roof Rat droppings are 1/4 to 1/2 inch in length, capsule shaped, with blunt ends.
When droppings are seen, it is a good practice to remove those droppings and later inspect to see whether new droppings were deposited.
In most instances, rats are very wary.
