  • Building Inspection and Rat-Proofing

Use a powerful flashlight to spot rats and to determine travel routes for the best locations to set baits and traps. In tree crops, some cultural practices can be helpful. For rats, all openings greater than 1/2" should be sealed. They are considered to be color-blind, responding only to the degree of lightness and darkness of color. Roof rats entering homes are generally found in raised or secure enclosures such as walls, cabinets, attics, and false ceilings. Where an entire warehouse may be fumigated for insect control with a material such as methyl bromide, all rats and mice that are present will be killed. Generally, a few more feedings are necessary to produce death with the first-generation anticoagulants (warfarin, pindone, diphacinone, and chlorophacinone) but this is less significant with the second-generation anticoagulants (bromadiolone and brodifacoum). These rats are nocturnal and are excellent climbers.

The Norway rat is generally considered the most important rat in the United States. Their tails are longer than the rest of their body and are uniformly dark colored. For the characteristics of the various anticoagulant rodenticides see Norway Rats. Indoors, runways appear as clean paths through dust or dirt. You don't want to over-pay of course. One of the more common techniques for bait use is to place the bait formulation in a tamper proof rodent bait station that protects the bait from accidental exposure to non-target animals or people. They are usually a shiny black, but may vary according to diet. Where legal and not hazardous, shooting of roof rats is effective at dusk as they travel along utility lines.
