Check the traps periodically, remove any dead trapped rats, and reset the traps. Roof rats leave a hind foot track of about 3/4-1 inch. The first step in controlling a roof rat infestation is to properly identify the rodents. Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control. They usually don't leave the attic for very long.

  • Should You Use Cage Traps To Catch Rats?

Roof rats frequently enter buildings from the roof or from accesses near overhead utility lines, which they use to travel from area to area. They may eat vegetation, but prefer to meat or meat-related wastes. In sugarcane, they move into the field as the cane matures and feed on the cane stalks. Becomes sexually mature between two and five months, producing four to six litters per year that consist of six to eight young each. These can be identified by the brown smudges of grease that comes from the rat's fur, and should all be sealed to prevent future rat infestations in the attic. Some traps should be placed on the floor, but more should be placed above floor level (for example, on top of stacked commodities). Sounds in the attic are often the first indication of the presence of roof rats in a residence. Where legal and not hazardous, shooting of roof rats is effective at dusk as they travel along utility lines.

Only after you've sealed the openings shut, you should start trapping and removal. Sounds Noises produced by scurrying rats, scratching in the walls or other noises from nest building may tip off the property owner to a rat problem. Successful long-term rat control is not simple. METHOD OF CONTROL: First of all, mothballs or ammonia won't make them leave, nor will ultrasonic sound emitters or strobe lights. Eliminate vines growing on buildings and, when feasible, overhanging tree limbs that may be used as travel routes. The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors. The most commonly found rat pest in United States is the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus). Some type of clean food can be used to entice the rats to the boxes, or the tracking powders can be used in conjunction with an anticoagulant bait, with both placed in the same station.
