  • What are Rats?

Exclusion and sealing of sites greater than ½ inch (about the size of a dime) using screens, flashing, door sweeps and other materials to keep rats from entering a structure. Store pet food in sealed containers and do not leave it out at night. The wildlife operator will seal shut all the rat entry points, and that's the ONLY way to solve a rat problem forever. Adult roof rats usually live about one year. The number of litters depends on the area and varies with nearness to the limit of their climatic range, availability of nutritious food, density of the local rat population, and the age of the rat. The food habits of roof rats outdoors in some respects resemble those of tree squirrels, since they prefer a wide variety of fruit and nuts. Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available. The latter two were ineffective for roof rats.

Droppings Rats produce a lot of feces and the presence of their fecal droppings is a surefire way to spot an infestation. Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces. Roof rats have a strong tendency to avoid new objects in their environment and this neophobia can influence control efforts, for it may take several days before they will approach a bait station or trap. In food-storage facilities, the most prominent sign may be smudge marks, the result of oil and dirt rubbing off of their fur as they travel along their aerial routes. The most commonly found rat pest in United States is the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus). These rats are primarily active at night. If you have rats in your home, it's very important to do the job right the first time! I have seen dozens and dozens of cases of nightmare scenarios over many years, in which homeowners have paid pest control companies for a monthly contract that never ends. Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient.

Norway rats can climb, but not as well as roof rats, and are strong swimmers. If the food is in an exposed area and too large to be eaten quickly, but not too large to be moved, they will usually carry it to a hiding place before eating it. Only after you've sealed the openings shut, you should start trapping and removal. Generally, Roof rats stay within 100 miles inland. They may eat the bark of smaller citrus branches and girdle them. Unless the suitability of the rat’s habitat is destroyed by modifying the landscaping, improving sanitation, and rat-proofing, control methods must be unrelenting if they are to be effective. Removing clutter and any debris that creates hiding places rats can use as harborage sites. The social behavior of free-living roof rats is very difficult to study and, as a result, has received less attention than that of Norway rats.
