One of the more common techniques for bait use is to place the bait formulation in a tamper proof rodent bait station that protects the bait from accidental exposure to non-target animals or people.
Roof rats are polygamous and group themselves into colonies of multiple males and females.
Roof rats can also nest on the ground if necessary.
Landscaped residential or industrial areas provide good habitat, as does riparian vegetation of riverbanks and streams.
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.
These tactics have been ruled fraudulent by the FTC, and they DO NOT WORK.
The ears and tail are nearly hairless and they are typically 12 to 18 inches long including the tail and weigh 10 to 16 ounces.
Generally, a few more feedings are necessary to produce death with the first-generation anticoagulants (warfarin, pindone, diphacinone, and chlorophacinone) but this is less significant with the second-generation anticoagulants (bromadiolone and brodifacoum).
Norway rats are usually active at dusk or during the night and are inactive during daylight hours.
In situations where rats are not controlled with conventional products, fumigation of transport vehicles or rat ground burrows may sometimes be needed.
Severe pruning and/or removal of certain ornamentals are often required to obtain a degree of lasting rat control.
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.
When necessary, roof rats will travel considerable distances (100 to 300 feet [30 to 90 m]) for food.
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.
Since none of these are anticoagulants, all can be used to control anticoagulant resistant populations of roof rats.
The older rodenticides, formerly referred to as acute toxicants, such as arsenic, phosphorus, red squill, and ANTU, are either no longer registered or of little importance in rat control.
You can often find smudges as an indication of rats, but they can often stay on walls for a long time, so it might be from an old infestation.
Successful long-term rat control is not simple.
They are sometimes found living in rice fields or around poultry or other farm buildings as well as in industrial sites where food and shelter are available.
Tunnel boxes or bait boxes specially designed to expose a layer of toxic powder will reduce potential contamination problems and may actually increase effectiveness.
Floor drains and sewer pipes should have tight-fitting grates with openings less than 1/4 inch in diameter.
