The muzzle of the roof rat is pointed and the overall appearance of the roof rat is much more streamlined and sleek looking than a Norway rat.
Once you're satisfied that there is no more evidence of rats, and you are not trapping any new rats, you should clean the attic or whatever area they were living in, to remove the contamination and biohazard, and also to eliminate the rat scent, which will attract new rats to try to chew their way into the house in the future.
Droppings Rats produce a lot of feces and the presence of their fecal droppings is a surefire way to spot an infestation.
When everyone is asleep and the house is quiet, the rats can be heard scurrying about.
Norway rats and the roof rats are very different in their habits, habitats and behavior, so the first requirement of a rat treatment program is to correctly identify the rat and develop a treatment plan that works for that species.
They can successfully mate throughout the year, meaning that if you have rats in the attic, then there is a good possibility that they will have a nest of baby rats that you will need to deal with as well.
It is found in every state.
Norway rats are common around human residences and industrial and commercial areas.
Mating generally peaks in the warmer months of the year, but may occur year round in some areas.
Snap traps are actually the very best way to do it.
Some of the more important diseases associated with rats include Rat-Bite Fever and Leptospirosis.
Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics.
Rub marks - rats get coated with dirt and they like to rub against the walls to find their way around a room’s perimeter, since they can't see so well.
When practical, remove extraneous vegetation adjacent to the crop that may provide shelter for rats.
Norway rats are a common mammalian pest of rice, but sometimes roof rats also feed on newly planted seed or the seedling as it emerges.
Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient.
Droppings are another good indicator of roof rat activity.
Visual sightings of live or dead rodents indicate rodent activity.
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.
These kill traps are often baited with whole nuts and are most useful in trapping rats in trees.
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.
The traditional style snap traps are still among the best ways of dealing with a rat problem, and these are simple to set and bait, and you should look to place them in areas where the rats are active, so where you can see feces and smudges on the walls.
Nests and Burrows - check behind shelves, boxes, behind the fridge, anywhere that a rat might like to use as a hiding space.
Rub Marks As rats move from one location to another, they stay close to vertical surfaces in their environment that they use to assist in their nightly navigation.
