A new second-generation anticoagulant, difethialone, is presently being developed and EPA registration is anticipated in the near future. Once you're satisfied that there is no more evidence of rats, and you are not trapping any new rats, you should clean the attic or whatever area they were living in, to remove the contamination and biohazard, and also to eliminate the rat scent, which will attract new rats to try to chew their way into the house in the future. Please also read the section on Sanitation, as it is an important consideration in rodent control. Pesticides must be registered for rat control by federal and/or state authorities and used in accordance with label directions. Avoid using poison and glue traps, as these are inhumane and cause more problems than they solve. Females can breed year-round.

  • Dealing With Roof Rat Problems

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. Roof rats are omnivores and will feed on many types of vegetation such as fruits, grains, seeds and grocery produce. Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed. You can often find smudges as an indication of rats, but they can often stay on walls for a long time, so it might be from an old infestation. Roof rats entering homes are generally found in raised or secure enclosures such as walls, cabinets, attics, and false ceilings. The traditional style snap traps are still among the best ways of dealing with a rat problem, and these are simple to set and bait, and you should look to place them in areas where the rats are active, so where you can see feces and smudges on the walls. If you're not experienced in setting them, you may have some problems, so be careful. They are usually a shiny black, but may vary according to diet.
