Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics. This is a great supplementary treatment to trapping when you are dealing with larger rodent populations, or for outdoor populations. Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics. The latter two were ineffective for roof rats. They do very well on feed provided for domestic animals such as swine, dairy cows, and chickens, as well as on dog and cat food. Prune to raise the skirts and remove any nests constructed in the trees. 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.

High-frequency sound-producing devices are advertised for frightening rats, but almost no research exists on their effects specifically on roof rats. These devices must be viewed with considerable skepticism, because research has not proven them effective. Many rats may cache or hoard considerable amounts of solid food, which they eat later.

Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome is transferred via inhalation of rodent urine, droppings or saliva. The key is to control rat populations, not individual rats. The first step in controlling a roof rat infestation is to properly identify the rodents. 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: Droppings - Roof Rat droppings are 1/4 to 1/2 inch in length, capsule shaped, with blunt ends. 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. Although roof rats have not yet been connected to HPS, everyone is advised to use caution when dealing with an infestation.
