Humane Rat Control in Rosemont Florida
A vegetation-free margin around the grove will slow rat invasions because rats are more susceptible to predation when crossing unfamiliar open areas.
Tracks - Outdoors, the runways of Roof rats appear smooth, well packed, and free of vegetations.
Their keen sense of hearing also aids in their ability to detect and escape danger.
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).
Lethal control often combines the use of rodenticides with non-toxic control measures such as snap traps or glue boards.
Rats have acute hearing and can readily detect noises.
Its worldwide geographic distribution suggests that it is much more suited to tropical and semitropical climates.
Hantavirus - a potentially lethal virus if humans come in contact with rat urine or feces.
Their presence is typically detected by the occurrence of their droppings, holes chewed into bags and containers, and chewed nesting materials.
The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors.
Rats have been plaguing humans for centuries, famous for their continuously-growing sharp teeth, their desire for human food, their tendency to get into homes and buildings and create nests and their health problems - rats are the essence of a pest.
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.
Black or brown, can be over 40 cm long, with a long tail, large ears and eyes, and a pointed nose.

No rat bait ingredient is universally highly acceptable, and regional differences are the rule rather than the exception.
Glue boards will catch roof rats, but, like traps, they must be located on beams, rafters, and along other travel routes, making them more difficult to place effectively for roof rats than for Norway rats or house mice.
The latter two were ineffective for roof rats.
All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice.
Always be sure that fresh bait is available continuously until rats stop feeding.
Rickettsial Diseases - various forms of Typhus fall into this category and can also be carried by rat-borne parasites.
Other indicators can include grease marks along surfaces as well as nests.
Dense shrubbery, vine-covered trees and fences, and vine ground cover make ideal harborage for roof rats.
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.
I highly recommend snap traps, not live cage traps, certainly not glue boards, and most definitely not poison! Never poison rats, it doesn't solve the problem and it just creates more problems.
