You hear the scratching rodents in your attic at night, correct? So you might assume that the rats are entering your attic at night. They can successfully mate throughout the year, meaning that if you have rats in the attic, then there is a good possibility that they will have a nest of baby rats that you will need to deal with as well. Rat densities (numbers of rats in a given area) are determined primarily by the suitability of the habitat—the amount of available nutritional and palatable food and nearby protective cover (shelter or harborage). Their presence is typically detected by the occurrence of their droppings, holes chewed into bags and containers, and chewed nesting materials. All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice. Roof rats can be carriers of diseases. They move faster than Norway rats and are very agile climbers, which enables them to quickly escape predators. Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything.
