The Norway rat is generally considered the most important rat in the United States.
They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source.
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.
While they may not kill the stalk outright, secondary organisms generally invade and reduce the sugar quality.
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.
These devices must be viewed with considerable skepticism, because research has not proven them effective.
At about 3 months of age they are completely independent of the mother and are reproductively mature.
You don't want to over-pay of course.
You can often find smudges as an indication of rats, but they can often stay on walls for a long time, so it might be from an old infestation.
Most commercial baits are registered for both species of rats and for house mice, but often they are less acceptable to roof rats than to the other species.
A rat does not want to be exposed to danger outside for very long! If you think you can just seal shut the entry holes into the house during the daylight when they are outside, that is incorrect.
In food-processing and food-storage facilities, roof rats do about the same type of damage as Norway rats, and damage is visually hard to differentiate.
Usually the peaks in breeding occur in the spring and fall.
Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available.
Some traps should be placed on the floor, but more should be placed above floor level (for example, on top of stacked commodities).
Liquid baits may be an effective alternative in situations where normal baits are not readily accepted, especially where water is scarce or where rats must travel some distance to reach water.
The latter two were ineffective for roof rats.
At birth they are hairless, and their eyes are closed.
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.
Rat control requires an integrated approach that includes non-lethal tools such as careful inspections, upgraded sanitation, and rat-proofing structures.
Their burrowing habitats include soil along building foundations, under woodpiles and other piles of debris.
Monitor the situation.
In tree crops, some cultural practices can be helpful.
The 5 to 8 young in the litter develop rapidly, growing hair within a week.
