What Do Rats Eat?

The smallest imperfections during the construction and roofing of a home can lead to a rat infestation. Pesticides must be registered for rat control by federal and/or state authorities and used in accordance with label directions. Make sure that all doors, windows and screens fit tightly in their frames and repair those that do not. Snails are a favorite food, but don’t expect roof rats to eliminate a garden snail problem. Glue boards will catch roof rats, but, like traps, they must be located on beams, rafters, and along other travel routes, making them more difficult to place effectively for roof rats than for Norway rats or house mice. The commercially available, expanded plastic treadle traps, such as the Victor Professional Rat Trap, are particularly effective if properly located in well-traveled paths. Rodents sniff out the bait and return to feed upon it continuously until the poison kills them. METHOD OF CONTROL: First of all, mothballs or ammonia won't make them leave, nor will ultrasonic sound emitters or strobe lights.

Please also read the section on Sanitation, as it is an important consideration in rodent control. Proper ladder safety is a must, as is roof safety. Roof rats will often move into sugarcane and citrus groves. 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. See Rat Trapping Tips and Rat Baiting Tips. Check the repairs you've done, to make sure no new areas have been chewed open. Proper ladder safety is a must, as is roof safety. Observation Rats are not usually seen during the day unless disturbed from their protective harborage or because of intolerable competition from other rats.

Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed. 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. No, they sleep in the attic all day. Use proper garbage and refuse disposal containers and implement exterior sanitation programs. The young may continue to nurse until 4 or 5 weeks old. Other vegetable, melon, berry, and fruit crops occasionally suffer relatively minor damage when adjacent to infested habitat such as riparian vegetation. Roof rats entering homes are generally found in raised or secure enclosures such as walls, cabinets, attics, and false ceilings.
