Humane Rodent Exterminator in Chalet North Mobile Home Park Florida
Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource.
Norway rats are also omnivores and will eat just about anything that is found near where humans discard food.
Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed.
Snails are a favorite food, but don’t expect roof rats to eliminate a garden snail problem.
Trap at left is modified by fastening a piece of cardboard to expand its trigger size (traps with expanded treadles can also be purchased from several manufacturers).
In homes, the attic and garage rafters close to the infestation are the best trapping sites.
Roof rats are more aerial than Norway rats in their habitat selection and often live in trees or on vine-covered fences.
Such caches may be found in a dismantled wood pile, attic, or behind boxes in a garage.
Exclusion and sealing of sites greater than ½ inch (about the size of a dime) using screens, flashing, door sweeps and other materials to keep rats from entering a structure.
The fumigation of structures, truck trailers, or rail cars should only be done by a licensed pest control operator who is trained in fumigation techniques.
Like the Norway rat, the roof rat is implicated in the transmission of a number of diseases to humans, including murine typhus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis (food poisoning), rat-bite fever, and plague.
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.
The number of litters depends on the area and varies with nearness to the limit of their climatic range, availability of nutritious food, density of the local rat population, and the age of the rat.
In dense populations, roof rats will establish a social hierarchy, wherein dominant males mate more than subordinate males.
By this time they have learned what is good to eat by experimenting with potential food items and by imitating their mother.
These kill traps are often baited with whole nuts and are most useful in trapping rats in trees.
Within a year, one female may be responsible for up to 40 new rodents.
The young are born in a nest about 21 to 23 days after conception.
They are very strong, and can injure your fingers.
Always be sure that fresh bait is available continuously until rats stop feeding.
Bait stations are sometimes difficult to place for roof rat control because of the rodents’ overhead traveling characteristics.
The reproductive potential of one female Norway rat is about 50-60 young per year.
Roof rat droppings are 12 to 13 mm with pointed ends, whereas Norway rat droppings are 18 to 20 mm and capsule shaped.
Trapping is the preferred method of indoor control.
