Roof rats have hairless, scaly tails that are longer than their heads and bodies.
Roof rats are omnivores and will feed on many types of vegetation such as fruits, grains, seeds and grocery produce.
Baiting - This method uses poisons, or rodenticides, to attract and kill rodents.
These rats are primarily active at night.
Statisticians estimate that rats destroy 20 percent of the world's food supply every year by feeding, and indirectly through contamination.
At least in some parts of the United States and elsewhere in the world, the methods used to control rats have reduced Norway rat populations but have permitted roof rats to become more prominent, apparently because they are more difficult to control.
The common wooden snap traps that are effective for Norway rats are effective for roof rats.
If you have heard noises in your walls or attic, chances are you have rats.
Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything.
These diseases often share similar symptoms, and medical professionals must perform the proper diagnoses.
Most of the states in the US interior are free of roof rats, but isolated infestations, probably stemming from infested cargo shipments, can occur.
Newer rodenticides are much more efficacious and have resulted in the phasing out of these older materials over the last 20 years.
Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions.
Roof rats are also food hoarders, stashing supplies of food such as seeds and nuts.
They also feed on a variety of vegetative parts of ornamental and native plant materials.
The muzzle of the roof rat is pointed and the overall appearance of the roof rat is much more streamlined and sleek looking than a Norway rat.
As mentioned above, roof rats prefer above ground nesting locations in shrubs, trees, and dense vegetation.
Neophobia is more pronounced in roof rats than in Norway rats.
At present there are three rodenticides—zinc phosphide, cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), and bromethalin—registered and available for roof rat control.
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.
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.
Seal any openings larger than ¼ inch with caulk, wood, mesh, or other appropriate materials.
The food habits of roof rats outdoors in some respects resemble those of tree squirrels, since they prefer a wide variety of fruit and nuts.
They are particularly useful for house mouse control in situations where other methods seem less appropriate.
