The reproductive potential of one female Norway rat is about 50-60 young per year.
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.
It actually makes it worse, because the rats are multiplying, dying, defecating, destroying insulation, chewing wires and chewing air ducts, while you wait for your next service.
They are particularly useful for house mouse control in situations where other methods seem less appropriate.
Roof rats are likely to found in coastal, near-coastal areas and port cities.
In urban settings, cats and owls prey on roof rats but have little if any effect on well-established populations.
If you have heard noises in your walls or attic, chances are you have rats.
Make sure that all doors, windows and screens fit tightly in their frames and repair those that do not.
Norway rats build their nests in underground burrows where they mate, rear their young, store food and seek refuge from predators.
The nature of damage to outdoor vegetation can often provide clues as to whether it is caused by the roof or Norway rat.
Control of roof rat damage in agriculture represents yet another scenario.
Your inspection process must include ladder work and climbing on a roof.
While you will not reasonably be able to compensate for every possible rodent entry, you can greatly reduce the ease of entry for rodents (and thereby, reduce the population size) by taking the following measures:
Store pet food in sealed containers and do not leave it out at night.
Roof Rats are predominate in coastal areas.
Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource.
All anticoagulants provide excellent roof rat control when prepared in acceptable baits.
Other indicators can include grease marks along surfaces as well as nests.
Then they return to the attic.
Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures.
Roof rats are susceptible to all of the various anticoagulant rodenticides, but less so than Norway rats.
It is best to contact pest management professionals for an inspection and evaluation.
Care must be exercised to ensure that baits are properly placed and the use instructions on the product’s label are strictly followed.
They are sometimes found living in rice fields or around poultry or other farm buildings as well as in industrial sites where food and shelter are available.
