Droppings - Roof Rat droppings are 1/4 to 1/2 inch in length, capsule shaped, with blunt ends. Where legal and not hazardous, shooting of roof rats is effective at dusk as they travel along utility lines. The most commonly found rat pest in United States is the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus). Some of their habitats include garbage dumps, sewers and fields. Rats can also transmit rat bite fever through bacteria in their mouth. Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource. Monitor the situation. A few instances of first-generation anticoagulant resistance have been reported in roof rats; although not common, it may be underestimated because so few resistance studies have been conducted on this species.

Exclusion is an important rodent control technique. Always be sure that fresh bait is available continuously until rats stop feeding. 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. A few baits are strong enough to cause death with a single feeding. If you've sealed the house correctly, then you shouldn't trap any new rats after just the first three days. 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. Check the traps periodically, remove any dead trapped rats, and reset the traps. These diseases often share similar symptoms, and medical professionals must perform the proper diagnoses.

They are nocturnal by nature and are accomplished climbers. They may live in the landscaping of one residence and feed at another. Avoid using poison and glue traps, as these are inhumane and cause more problems than they solve. A few baits are strong enough to cause death with a single feeding. The older rodenticides, formerly referred to as acute toxicants, such as arsenic, phosphorus, red squill, and ANTU, are either no longer registered or of little importance in rat control. Fur is smooth. Like the Norway rat, the roof rat is implicated in the transmission of a number of diseases to humans, including murine typhus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis (food poisoning), rat-bite fever, and plague. 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.
