  • Dealing With Roof Rat Problems

  • What if a rat got inside my house?

  • Rat Proofing

Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available. Other rat signs may also assist, but be aware that both species may be present. For example, only zinc phosphide can be applied on the ground to control rats in sugarcane or macadamia orchards, and the second-generation anticoagulants, cholecalciferol and bromethalin, can be used only in and around buildings, not around crops or away from buildings even in non crop situations. Other vegetable, melon, berry, and fruit crops occasionally suffer relatively minor damage when adjacent to infested habitat such as riparian vegetation. 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. Most of the states in the US interior are free of roof rats, but isolated infestations, probably stemming from infested cargo shipments, can occur. In sugarcane, they move into the field as the cane matures and feed on the cane stalks. A rat does not want to be exposed to danger outside for very long! If you think you can just seal shut the entry holes into the house during the daylight when they are outside, that is incorrect.

  • The Invasion Of Roof Rats

In the third week they begin to take solid food. Sounds in the attic are often the first indication of the presence of roof rats in a residence. Use a powerful flashlight to spot rats and to determine travel routes for the best locations to set baits and traps. Roof rats have a strong tendency to avoid new objects in their environment and this neophobia can influence control efforts, for it may take several days before they will approach a bait station or trap. That is very costly! Do the job ONCE by a wildlife operator, NOT A PEST CONTROL COMPANY, get it done, and you'll be rat-free forever. Some traps should be placed on the floor, but more should be placed above floor level (for example, on top of stacked commodities). However, the complexity in mode of action of newer materials makes these classifications outdated. There are still outbreaks of plague in the United States and around the world today.

Droppings - you might find these in places like cupboards, cabinets and other areas around the home where rats like to hide They also feed on a variety of vegetative parts of ornamental and native plant materials. If rats are seen during the day that usually means a very large rodent population is nearby. The nature of damage to outdoor vegetation can often provide clues as to whether it is caused by the roof or Norway rat. Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off of the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist. They can often be seen at night running along overhead utility lines or fences. Observation Rats are not usually seen during the day unless disturbed from their protective harborage or because of intolerable competition from other rats. In food-storage facilities, the most prominent sign may be smudge marks, the result of oil and dirt rubbing off of their fur as they travel along their aerial routes.
