Shooting is rarely effective by itself and should be done in conjunction with trapping or baiting programs. In most instances, rats are very wary. However, when a Norway rat population grows so large that competition from other rats for food, water and harborage increases, some members of the rat community may seek to find new areas to colonize during the daytime. 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. They have coarse, brown fur, with lighter fur on the undersides. Rats have acute hearing and can readily detect noises. No, they sleep in the attic all day. They use their tails for balance while traveling along overhead utility lines.

Once you are confident that you have caught all of the rats that are in the attic, then it will be time to check for any insulation or wires in the attic that need to be replaced, and for any nesting material to remove, and feces to clean up. Females can breed year-round. There are still outbreaks of plague in the United States and around the world today. They may live in the landscaping of one residence and feed at another. Citrus trees, having very low hanging skirts, are more prone to damage because they provide rats with protection. There are holes all over - missing roof vent screens, plumbing stacks, gaps between the roof and fascia board, gaps in the siding, areas where pipes go into the house, etc. Adults range in weight from about 5-10 ounces. The most common rat in the area is the Norway rat.

Wire-mesh, live traps (Tomahawk®, Havahart®) are available for trapping rats. 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. When everyone is asleep and the house is quiet, the rats can be heard scurrying about. Scientists have noted that the roof rat’s long tail is adapted to enhance their ability to climb and functions to assists them in balancing. A mouse's tracks will be much shorter. A new second-generation anticoagulant, difethialone, is presently being developed and EPA registration is anticipated in the near future. Also, roof rats are likely to consume insects. The 5 to 8 young in the litter develop rapidly, growing hair within a week.
