Droppings - Roof Rat droppings are 1/4 to 1/2 inch in length, capsule shaped, with blunt ends. 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. Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available. Use a powerful flashlight to spot rats and to determine travel routes for the best locations to set baits and traps. Rodent-infested pallets of goods can be tarped and fumigated on an individual or collective basis.

Norway rats build their nests in underground burrows where they mate, rear their young, store food and seek refuge from predators. Gnaw Marks Rat need to chew and gnaw on wood, plastic and other hard surfaces in order to keep their teeth chiseled down. Their burrowing habitats include soil along building foundations, under woodpiles and other piles of debris. Rats rely more on their keen senses of smell, taste, touch, and hearing than on vision. Trapping is the preferred method of indoor control. Rats contaminating food or food preparation surfaces can transmit food poisoning. METHOD OF CONTROL: First of all, mothballs or ammonia won't make them leave, nor will ultrasonic sound emitters or strobe lights. I highly recommend snap traps, not live cage traps, certainly not glue boards, and most definitely not poison! Never poison rats, it doesn't solve the problem and it just creates more problems.
