Roof rats usually require water daily, though their local diet may provide an adequate amount if it is high in water content.
Cage trapping is often considered to be the most humane way of dealing with an animal problem, and certainly when it comes to larger animals it is fair to say that it can be effective.
Since roof rats rarely dig burrows, burrow fumigants are of limited use; however, if they have constructed burrows, then fumigants that are effective on Norway rats, such as aluminum phosphide and gas cartridges, will be effective on roof rats.
In food-processing and storage facilities, they will feed on nearly all food items, though their food preferences may differ from those of Norway rats.
Roof rats are polygamous and group themselves into colonies of multiple males and females.
Typically, 3 or more litters are produced annually.
Roof rats frequently enter buildings from the roof or from accesses near overhead utility lines, which they use to travel from area to area.
They can transmit these diseases through physical contact, bites, by contamination or by fleas that are feeding on the rodent.
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.
A new second-generation anticoagulant, difethialone, is presently being developed and EPA registration is anticipated in the near future.
The key is to control rat populations, not individual rats.
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.
If you're not experienced in setting them, you may have some problems, so be careful.
They are constantly exploring surroundings and notice changes and are suspicious by nature.
Okay, the first and most important thing you have to do is find out how rats are getting into the building.
I highly recommend snap traps, not live cage traps, certainly not glue boards, and most definitely not poison! Never poison rats, it doesn't solve the problem and it just creates more problems.
Removing clutter and any debris that creates hiding places rats can use as harborage sites.
Roof Rats can enter homes and other structures through openings as small as ½ inch.
This cost will vary a great deal, depending on how many repairs are needed, what part of the country you live in, how many rats are in the attic, how many service trips are necessary, if you need cleanup, etc.
Young rats generally cannot be trapped until about 1 month old.
Generally, a few more feedings are necessary to produce death with the first-generation anticoagulants (warfarin, pindone, diphacinone, and chlorophacinone) but this is less significant with the second-generation anticoagulants (bromadiolone and brodifacoum).
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.
Some of the first-generation anticoagulants (pindone and warfarin) are available as soluble rodenticides from which water baits can be prepared.
