Another important treatment component is customer education so the customer understands the concepts of the proposed control program. You hear the scratching rodents in your attic at night, correct? So you might assume that the rats are entering your attic at night. There's nothing fun about finding rats around your home or property. Norway rats are common around human residences and industrial and commercial areas. Once established, they readily breed and thrive within buildings, just as Norway rats do. It is difficult to find suitable places to lay the tracking powder that will not create a potential problem of contaminating food or materials below the placement sites. Rats leave the attic during the night, to go out and forage for water and food. Many rats may cache or hoard considerable amounts of solid food, which they eat later.

Roof rats leave a hind foot track of about 3/4-1 inch. In agricultural settings, weasels, foxes, coyotes, and other predators prey on roof rats, but their take is inconsequential as a population control factor. Tracking powders can be placed in voids behind walls, near points of entry, and in well-defined trails. Roof rats entering homes are generally found in raised or secure enclosures such as walls, cabinets, attics, and false ceilings. 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. Pesticides must be registered for rat control by federal and/or state authorities and used in accordance with label directions.

No, they sleep in the attic all day. Strip and destroy all unwanted fruit when the harvest period is over. Some of their habitats include garbage dumps, sewers and fields. The whiskers and guard hairs enable the animals to travel adjacent to walls in the dark and in burrows. A preferred categorization would be “anticoagulants” and “non-anticoagulants” or “other rodenticides. Rats have been plaguing humans for centuries, famous for their continuously-growing sharp teeth, their desire for human food, their tendency to get into homes and buildings and create nests and their health problems - rats are the essence of a pest. Statisticians estimate that rats destroy 20 percent of the world's food supply every year by feeding, and indirectly through contamination. Exclusion is an important rodent control technique.
