The young may continue to nurse until 4 or 5 weeks old.
The traditional style snap traps are still among the best ways of dealing with a rat problem, and these are simple to set and bait, and you should look to place them in areas where the rats are active, so where you can see feces and smudges on the walls.
Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces.
They usually don't leave the attic for very long.
Roof rats have hairless, scaly tails that are longer than their heads and bodies.
Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed.
It is unlikely, however, they will be any more effective for roof rats than for Norway rats.
Presently, only one such modified trap is commercially available.
Trim all tree branches to further prevent entry.
At present there are three rodenticides—zinc phosphide, cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), and bromethalin—registered and available for roof rat control.
Citrus trees, having very low hanging skirts, are more prone to damage because they provide rats with protection.
Roof rats are also food hoarders, stashing supplies of food such as seeds and nuts.
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.
Rodents sniff out the bait and return to feed upon it continuously until the poison kills them.
Avoid using poison and glue traps, as these are inhumane and cause more problems than they solve.
If roof rats are seen exposed, it often indicates their hiding spaces are all filled by other rats or that they have been disturbed, such as by construction.
Rodent-proofing against roof rats usually requires more time to find entry points than for Norway rats because of their greater climbing ability.
However, when a Norway rat population grows so large that competition from other rats for food, water and harborage increases, some members of the rat community may seek to find new areas to colonize during the daytime.
Norway rats build their nests in underground burrows where they mate, rear their young, store food and seek refuge from predators.
Emphasis should be placed on the removal of as much harborage as is practical.
Females can breed year-round.
Indoors, runways appear as clean paths through dust or dirt.
Trichinosis may be contracted through eating undercooked meat of animals that have fed on rats.
A control operation, therefore, must reduce numbers to a very low level; otherwise, rats will not only reproduce rapidly, but often quickly exceed their former density for a short period of time.
