Roof rats leave a hind foot track of about 3/4-1 inch. The reproductive potential of one female Norway rat is about 50-60 young per year. This is a great supplementary treatment to trapping when you are dealing with larger rodent populations, or for outdoor populations. Control methods must reflect an understanding of the roof rat’s habitat requirements, reproductive capabilities, food habits, life history, behavior, senses, movements, and the dynamics of its population structure. When practical, remove extraneous vegetation adjacent to the crop that may provide shelter for rats. While you are preventing future rat population growth through inspection, sanitation, and exclusion, you will also want to begin working towards elimination of the population that is already present through trapping and baiting. Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available. They may not be effective on roof rats, however, because of their usual placement.

Rats can squeeze into a hole the size of a quarter. The nature of damage to outdoor vegetation can often provide clues as to whether it is caused by the roof or Norway rat. 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: In agricultural settings, weasels, foxes, coyotes, and other predators prey on roof rats, but their take is inconsequential as a population control factor. This is a great supplementary treatment to trapping when you are dealing with larger rodent populations, or for outdoor populations. However, a few differences must be taken into account. Rats will also drag their tails, leaving a mark between their feet tracks. You can't ignore wildlife problems, because of the damage and health risks that rats cause.

Both roof rats and Norway rats have a well-developed sense of smell and are wary of new things that are introduced into their home range. Tracking powders are used much less often for roof rats than for Norway rats because roof rats frequent overhead areas within buildings. 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). Roof rats range along the lower half of the East Coast and throughout the Gulf States upward into Arkansas. Any reputable nuisance wildlife company will have spent money on licensing, liability insurance, and a host of other business expenses. In landscaped yards they often live in overgrown shrubbery or vines, feeding on ornamentals, vegetables, fruits, and nuts. Between 9 and 14 days, their eyes open, and they begin to explore for food and move about near their nest. The commercially available, expanded plastic treadle traps, such as the Victor Professional Rat Trap, are particularly effective if properly located in well-traveled paths.
