The key is to control rat populations, not individual rats.
Adults range in weight from about 5-10 ounces.
Most of the states in the US interior are free of roof rats, but isolated infestations, probably stemming from infested cargo shipments, can occur.
The smallest imperfections during the construction and roofing of a home can lead to a rat infestation.
Roof rats are susceptible to all of the various anticoagulant rodenticides, but less so than Norway rats.
Rats will also drag their tails, leaving a mark between their feet tracks.
Also, Norway rats may prey upon fish, poultry, mice, birds, small reptiles and amphibians.
Baiting - This method uses poisons, or rodenticides, to attract and kill rodents.
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.
Another important treatment component is customer education so the customer understands the concepts of the proposed control program.
Roof rats usually require water daily, though their local diet may provide an adequate amount if it is high in water content.
These rats are primarily active at night.
There are several other types of lethal traps, including the crocodile trap, which has teeth that close on the rat, and even gas chamber traps.
While you will not reasonably be able to compensate for every possible rodent entry, you can greatly reduce the ease of entry for rodents (and thereby, reduce the population size) by taking the following measures:
The more dominant individuals occupy the better habitats and feed whenever they like, whereas the less fortunate individuals may have to occupy marginal habitat and feed when the more dominant rats are not present.
Traps should be placed flush with walls in areas of highest travel (as determined by Inspection).
In controlling roof rats with rodenticides, a sharp distinction must be made between control in and around buildings and control away from buildings such as in landfills and dumps, along drainage ditches and streams, in sewer water evaporation ponds, and in parks.
Roof rats entering homes are generally found in raised or secure enclosures such as walls, cabinets, attics, and false ceilings.
When rodent-proofing against roof rats, pay close attention to the roof and roof line areas to assure all accesses are closed.
Then the rats should be trapped and removed.
