Adults range in weight from about 5-10 ounces. Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces. Rats may live up to three years, but a lifespan of one and a half years is more common. The underside of the roof rat’s body is grayish to white. Once established, they readily breed and thrive within buildings, just as Norway rats do. Most pest control companies set rat traps, perhaps squirt some flammable expansion foam at very obvious holes, and then put you on a monthly service to remove the rats that are still getting in to your home. Grease marks are produced as the rodent travels along an edge, and the oils in their fur are deposited. There are holes all over - missing roof vent screens, plumbing stacks, gaps between the roof and fascia board, gaps in the siding, areas where pipes go into the house, etc.

Western Exterminator is the expert in rat removal and rat control services and we have the latest methods for finding where rats are getting in and preventing them from returning. Most commercial baits are registered for both species of rats and for house mice, but often they are less acceptable to roof rats than to the other species. They may be frightened by sound-producing devices for awhile but they become accustomed to constant and frequently repeated sounds quickly. You will know the bait is working when the bait is no longer being consumed. For best results, try several baits to find out which one rats consume most. It is difficult to find suitable places to lay the tracking powder that will not create a potential problem of contaminating food or materials below the placement sites. Other rat signs may also assist, but be aware that both species may be present. Female adults will produce about seven litters per year and will mate again about 18 hours after giving birth to her litter of about eight pups.

Labels will specify where and under what conditions the bait can be used. The latter two were ineffective for roof rats. Traps should be placed flush with walls in areas of highest travel (as determined by Inspection). Overhead trap sets are particularly useful for roof rats. In some agricultural areas, roof rats cause significant losses of tree crops such as citrus and avocados and, to a lesser extent, walnuts, almonds, and other nuts. There are holes all over - missing roof vent screens, plumbing stacks, gaps between the roof and fascia board, gaps in the siding, areas where pipes go into the house, etc. Baiting - This method uses poisons, or rodenticides, to attract and kill rodents. Some of their habitats include garbage dumps, sewers and fields.
