Visual sightings of live or dead rodents indicate rodent activity.
Rats are nocturnal and are not commonly seen.
Attach rat guards to overhead utility wires and maintain them regularly.
All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice.
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.
Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off of the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist.
In residences where rats may be living in the attic and feeding outdoors, the damage may be restricted to tearing up insulation for nesting or gnawing electrical wiring.
If living under a refrigerator or freezer, they may disable the unit by gnawing the electrical wires.
Rat densities (numbers of rats in a given area) are determined primarily by the suitability of the habitat—the amount of available nutritional and palatable food and nearby protective cover (shelter or harborage).
Wire-mesh, live traps (Tomahawk®, Havahart®) are available for trapping rats.
Newer rodenticides are much more efficacious and have resulted in the phasing out of these older materials over the last 20 years.
Knowledge is limited on interspecific competition between the different genera and species of rats.
The Norway rat produces six to eight litters of six to nine young per year.
Since roof rats rarely dig burrows, burrow fumigants are of limited use; however, if they have constructed burrows, then fumigants that are effective on Norway rats, such as aluminum phosphide and gas cartridges, will be effective on roof rats.
For best results, try several baits to find out which one rats consume most.
Having completed the repairs to wires, and possibly vacuumed feces or replaced insulation (not usually necessary) fumigate the attic to kill any remaining parasites or spores from the rats.
Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available.
Rats may live up to three years, but a lifespan of one and a half years is more common.
Therefore, the body oils on a rat’s fur gets deposited on corners and edges of walls and around holes and gaps they use to enter into a wall void.
They also exist all along the Pacific Coast and are found on the Hawaiian Islands (Fig.
They need not be baited.
They can transmit these diseases through physical contact, bites, by contamination or by fleas that are feeding on the rodent.
If roof rats are seen exposed, it often indicates their hiding spaces are all filled by other rats or that they have been disturbed, such as by construction.
Please also read the section on Sanitation, as it is an important consideration in rodent control.
