These rats are primarily active at night.
There are two basic methods of rat population reduction:
Presently, only one such modified trap is commercially available.
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.
While rats can live in the walls, the kitchen, under the house, etc. the most common place for rats to inhabit in a house is the attic.
As their name suggests, roof rats may be found in elevated areas such as trees, rafters, attics and roofs.
Bait stations are sometimes difficult to place for roof rat control because of the rodents’ overhead traveling characteristics.
Elsewhere, reports indicate that roof rats are slowly disappearing from localized areas for no apparent reason.
Typically, 3 or more litters are produced annually.
They use their keen sense of smell to locate and select food items, identify territories and travel routes, and recognize other rats, especially those of the opposite sex.
The whiskers and guard hairs enable the animals to travel adjacent to walls in the dark and in burrows.
Tracking powders are used much less often for roof rats than for Norway rats because roof rats frequent overhead areas within buildings.
When rodent-proofing against roof rats, pay close attention to the roof and roof line areas to assure all accesses are closed.
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.
The reproductive potential of one female Norway rat is about 50-60 young per year.
The Norway rat is also called brown rat, house rat, sewer rat, and wharf rat.
Shooting is rarely effective by itself and should be done in conjunction with trapping or baiting programs.
Adult females are able to reproduce at 3-5 months old, can produce up to five litters each year with about 5-8 young in each litter.
They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source.
Rats have been plaguing humans for centuries, famous for their continuously-growing sharp teeth, their desire for human food, their tendency to get into homes and buildings and create nests and their health problems - rats are the essence of a pest.
However, the complexity in mode of action of newer materials makes these classifications outdated.
These kill traps are often baited with whole nuts and are most useful in trapping rats in trees.
Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off of the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist.
They may live in the landscaping of one residence and feed at another.
