  • Information on Pack Rats and Roof Rats

The most commonly found rat pest in United States is the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus). 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. Presently, only one such modified trap is commercially available. They approach new food or object with caution. Also, Norway rats may prey upon fish, poultry, mice, birds, small reptiles and amphibians. Proper ladder safety is a must, as is roof safety. Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species. In food-processing and storage facilities, they will feed on nearly all food items, though their food preferences may differ from those of Norway rats.

Droppings Rats produce a lot of feces and the presence of their fecal droppings is a surefire way to spot an infestation. In tree crops, some cultural practices can be helpful. From causing plague epidemics (the "Black Death" of Europe) to rat-bite fever, whether feeding on stored grain or gnawing electric wires, rats are enemies of humankind. Walk only on the wooden beams in the attic, never the sheet rock, or you could fall through the ceiling! Be careful, an attic is a hazardous place, where it can be easy to fall, or poke a roofing nail in your head. Tracks - Outdoors, the runways of Roof rats appear smooth, well packed, and free of vegetations. Norway rats are also omnivores and will eat just about anything that is found near where humans discard food. Out-of-doors, roof rats may be present in low to moderate numbers with little sign in the way of tracks or droppings or runs and burrows.

  • What are Rats?

  • Do rats chew on wires? Why?

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. Lethal control often combines the use of rodenticides with non-toxic control measures such as snap traps or glue boards. The Norway rat is also called brown rat, house rat, sewer rat, and wharf rat. You will never solve a rat problem until you find all of these openings, and seal them shut with steel, which rats are unable to chew through. However, the complexity in mode of action of newer materials makes these classifications outdated. Most information on this subject comes from populations confined in cages or outdoor pens. Unfortunately, the rat’s great adaptability to varying environmental conditions can sometimes make this information elusive. Pocket gopher box-type traps (such as the DK-2 Gopher Getter) can be modified to catch rats by reversing the action of the trigger.
