Droppings are another good indicator of roof rat activity. Roof rats are susceptible to all of the various anticoagulant rodenticides, but less so than Norway rats. 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. Roof rats are more aerial than Norway rats in their habitat selection and often live in trees or on vine-covered fences. They also often chew on inedible materials such as books, soap, and cans. Lights (flashing or continuously on) may repel rats at first, but rats will quickly acclimate to them. Where label instructions permit, small blocks can be placed or fastened on rafters, ledges, or even attached to tree limbs, where they are readily accessible to the arboreal rats. A control operation, therefore, must reduce numbers to a very low level; otherwise, rats will not only reproduce rapidly, but often quickly exceed their former density for a short period of time.

Rat removal expert’s rat control technicians are properly trained in how to get rid of rats and the elimination of rat problems using a variety of rat control techniques. Products sold as general animal repellents, based on taste and/or odor, are sometimes advertised to repel animals, including rats, from garbage bags. However, the complexity in mode of action of newer materials makes these classifications outdated. Check the traps periodically, remove any dead trapped rats, and reset the traps. Dense shrubbery, vine-covered trees and fences, and vine ground cover make ideal harborage for roof rats. 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). Norway rats build their nests in underground burrows where they mate, rear their young, store food and seek refuge from predators. Control methods must reflect an understanding of the roof rat’s habitat requirements, reproductive capabilities, food habits, life history, behavior, senses, movements, and the dynamics of its population structure.

It is best to contact pest management professionals for an inspection and evaluation. Roof rats are adept climbers and not surprisingly are apt to build their nests in locations above ground. Newer rodenticides are much more efficacious and have resulted in the phasing out of these older materials over the last 20 years. You can't ignore wildlife problems, because of the damage and health risks that rats cause. Pelleted or loose cereal anticoagulant baits are used extensively in tamper-resistant bait boxes or stations for a permanent baiting program for Norway rats and house mice. Monitor the situation. The social behavior of free-living roof rats is very difficult to study and, as a result, has received less attention than that of Norway rats. They may be frightened by sound-producing devices for awhile but they become accustomed to constant and frequently repeated sounds quickly.
