Rodenticides were once categorized as acute (single-dose) or chronic (multiple dose) toxicants.
Roof rats will often move into sugarcane and citrus groves.
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.
By this time they have learned what is good to eat by experimenting with potential food items and by imitating their mother.
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:
Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption.
Roof rats are polygamous and group themselves into colonies of multiple males and females.
Distinctions must be made as to which rodenticide (registered product) to use, the method of application or placement, and the amount of bait to apply.
Look for fresh droppings.
Norway rats are also omnivores and will eat just about anything that is found near where humans discard food.
It is unlikely, however, they will be any more effective for roof rats than for Norway rats.
Elsewhere, reports indicate that roof rats are slowly disappearing from localized areas for no apparent reason.
Cage trapping is often considered to be the most humane way of dealing with an animal problem, and certainly when it comes to larger animals it is fair to say that it can be effective.
Setting a trap to collect a few specimens may be the only sure way to identify the rat or rats involved.
Rat treatment involves both non-chemical and chemical methods.
Exclusion and sealing of sites greater than ½ inch (about the size of a dime) using screens, flashing, door sweeps and other materials to keep rats from entering a structure.
The most commonly found rat pest in United States is the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus).
While they may not kill the stalk outright, secondary organisms generally invade and reduce the sugar quality.
Various sounds that indicate rodent activity include gnawing, scratching, and digging noises.
They usually don't leave the attic for very long.
Control of roof rat damage in agriculture represents yet another scenario.
In controlling roof rats with rodenticides, a sharp distinction must be made between control in and around buildings and control away from buildings such as in landfills and dumps, along drainage ditches and streams, in sewer water evaporation ponds, and in parks.
These rats are primarily active at night.
Roof rats usually require water daily, though their local diet may provide an adequate amount if it is high in water content.
