  • What are Rats?

The muzzle of the roof rat is pointed and the overall appearance of the roof rat is much more streamlined and sleek looking than a Norway rat. Roof rat droppings are 12 to 13 mm with pointed ends, whereas Norway rat droppings are 18 to 20 mm and capsule shaped. It is found in every state. Mating generally peaks in the warmer months of the year, but may occur year round in some areas. Touch is an important sense in rats. You might find holes in walls and wood. The reproductive potential of one female Norway rat is about 50-60 young per year. There are still outbreaks of plague in the United States and around the world today.

  • What should I do with a rat after I catch it?

Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available. If you've sealed the house correctly, then you shouldn't trap any new rats after just the first three days. Generally, Roof rats stay within 100 miles inland. They have also been found living in sewer systems, but this is not common. That is not the case! They sleep in your attic all day, and then at dusk they wake up, and start moving around, and that's why you hear them after dark. It is difficult to find suitable places to lay the tracking powder that will not create a potential problem of contaminating food or materials below the placement sites. Roof rats leave a hind foot track of about 3/4-1 inch. In dense populations, roof rats will establish a social hierarchy, wherein dominant males mate more than subordinate males.

Also, be careful when setting snap traps. It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing. In most of our urban areas, Norway rats may be seen scurrying around after dark looking for food in garbage cans and other places where human refuse is found. In rare instances, isolated populations are found in areas not within their normal distribution range in the United States. Please also read the section on Sanitation, as it is an important consideration in rodent control. A mouse's tracks will be much shorter. Remove pre harvest fruits or nuts that drop in backyards. Roof rats are polygamous and group themselves into colonies of multiple males and females.
