PLEASE read my how to trap a rat guide for good tips and methods on proper rat trapping.
Knowledge is limited on interspecific competition between the different genera and species of rats.
Roof Rats can enter homes and other structures through openings as small as ½ inch.
The young are able to breed before they are four months old.
The roof rat is more at home in warm climates, and apparently less adaptable, than the Norway rat, which is why it has not spread throughout the country.
Roof rats range along the lower half of the East Coast and throughout the Gulf States upward into Arkansas.
Young rats generally cannot be trapped until about 1 month old.
Rodents sniff out the bait and return to feed upon it continuously until the poison kills them.
The first step in controlling a roof rat infestation is to properly identify the rodents.
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.
Where anticoagulant resistance is known or suspected, the use of first-generation anticoagulants should be avoided in favor of the second-generation anticoagulants or one of the non anticoagulant rodenticides like bromethalin or cholecalciferol.
Avoid using poison and glue traps, as these are inhumane and cause more problems than they solve.
Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences.
Unfortunately, the rat’s great adaptability to varying environmental conditions can sometimes make this information elusive.
Rats, like mice, are omnivorous rodents.
Unless the suitability of the rat’s habitat is destroyed by modifying the landscaping, improving sanitation, and rat-proofing, control methods must be unrelenting if they are to be effective.
Should Norway rats infest a structure, they most likely will live in the basement or ground floor.
Anticoagulant paraffin-type bait blocks provide an alternative to bait stations containing pelleted or loose cereal bait.
Indoors, runways appear as clean paths through dust or dirt.
Rats are responsible for the spread of many diseases.
All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice.
Sometimes they transmit disease indirectly, for example, when fleas first bite an infected rat, then a person.
These techniques include improving sanitation for the affected location, eliminating hiding places, exclusion and may also include lethal methods such as traps and rodenticides.
