Some type of clean food can be used to entice the rats to the boxes, or the tracking powders can be used in conjunction with an anticoagulant bait, with both placed in the same station. By this time they have learned what is good to eat by experimenting with potential food items and by imitating their mother. Sightings & Sounds - Since rodents are nocturnal and live secretively under normal circumstances, you can be sure that regular daytime rodent sightings indicate a heavy infestation. Severe pruning and/or removal of certain ornamentals are often required to obtain a degree of lasting rat control. Anticoagulants (slow-acting, chronic toxicants). Rodents sniff out the bait and return to feed upon it continuously until the poison kills them. Tunnel boxes or bait boxes specially designed to expose a layer of toxic powder will reduce potential contamination problems and may actually increase effectiveness. Glue boards will catch roof rats, but, like traps, they must be located on beams, rafters, and along other travel routes, making them more difficult to place effectively for roof rats than for Norway rats or house mice.

Listen for rat evidence, like their scurrying and running noises in the attic, and scratching in the walls. Their use for roof rats is limited to control within structures because roof rats rarely produce burrows. It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing. Because of the diseases they can carry, you should also check up on the equipment that you will need to safely trap the rats without any risk to your health. Rat densities (numbers of rats in a given area) are determined primarily by the suitability of the habitat—the amount of available nutritional and palatable food and nearby protective cover (shelter or harborage). This means there are no more rats to feed on it because they are dead. That is very costly! Do the job ONCE by a wildlife operator, NOT A PEST CONTROL COMPANY, get it done, and you'll be rat-free forever. For the characteristics of the various anticoagulant rodenticides see Norway Rats.

Snap traps are actually the very best way to do it. Once you know the location of the rats, you can set traps or place bait. They may not be effective on roof rats, however, because of their usual placement. Rat droppings are three times as large as mouse droppings. Touch is an important sense in rats.
