How To Get Rid Of Rats In The Attic - Rats are one of the most problematic pest animals to deal with for those who have attic spaces, as they can squeeze through holes that are around the size of a quarter, while they are also prodigious breeders.
With lemons they may eat only the rind and leave the hanging fruit intact.
There is less tendency to see droppings, urine, or tracks on the floor in buildings because rats may live overhead between floors, above false ceilings, or in utility spaces, and venture down to feed or obtain food.
It is difficult to find suitable places to lay the tracking powder that will not create a potential problem of contaminating food or materials below the placement sites.
I'm not going to go into detail about harnesses and chicken ladders and such, but be careful! Then, when in the attic, wear a respirator - you don't want to breathe in fiberglass insulation, dust or mold, or the variety of diseases associated with rats.
The roof rat is more at home in warm climates, and apparently less adaptable, than the Norway rat, which is why it has not spread throughout the country.
Walk only on the wooden beams in the attic, never the sheet rock, or you could fall through the ceiling! Be careful, an attic is a hazardous place, where it can be easy to fall, or poke a roofing nail in your head.
Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures.
Rodent-proofing against roof rats usually requires more time to find entry points than for Norway rats because of their greater climbing ability.
It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing.
These rodents have been known to consume tree bark, meat and grain.
Baiting - This method uses poisons, or rodenticides, to attract and kill rodents.
Keeping vegetation thinned out or removed from the perimeter of buildings.
Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions.
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.
The efficacy of such products for rats is generally lacking.
Proper ladder safety is a must, as is roof safety.
Where legal and not hazardous, shooting of roof rats is effective at dusk as they travel along utility lines.
Trapping is the preferred method of indoor control.
METHOD OF CONTROL: First of all, mothballs or ammonia won't make them leave, nor will ultrasonic sound emitters or strobe lights.
No, they sleep in the attic all day.
