Rats (especially Roof rats) are wary of new objects, new foods or changed in environment.
Like the Norway rat, the roof rat is implicated in the transmission of a number of diseases to humans, including murine typhus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis (food poisoning), rat-bite fever, and plague.
Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption.
Check the repairs you've done, to make sure no new areas have been chewed open.
The underside of the roof rat’s body is grayish to white.
Within a year, one female may be responsible for up to 40 new rodents.
Rodents sniff out the bait and return to feed upon it continuously until the poison kills them.
When necessary, roof rats will travel considerable distances (100 to 300 feet [30 to 90 m]) for food.
Tracking powders are used much less often for roof rats than for Norway rats because roof rats frequent overhead areas within buildings.
Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource.
Norway rats are also polygamous and form colonies of many males and females.
Rat densities (numbers of rats in a given area) are determined primarily by the suitability of the habitat—the amount of available nutritional and palatable food and nearby protective cover (shelter or harborage).
No chemical repellents are specifically registered for rat control.
They often eat all the pulp from oranges while the fruit is still hanging on the tree, leaving only the empty rind.
However, they may sometimes also build nests in burrows.
Rats, like mice, are omnivorous rodents.
In agricultural settings, weasels, foxes, coyotes, and other predators prey on roof rats, but their take is inconsequential as a population control factor.
Female adults will produce about seven litters per year and will mate again about 18 hours after giving birth to her litter of about eight pups.
In some situations in which the rats have been eliminated, cats that are good hunters may prevent reinfestation.
Eliminate vines growing on buildings and, when feasible, overhanging tree limbs that may be used as travel routes.
You don't want to over-pay of course.
Tunnel boxes or bait boxes specially designed to expose a layer of toxic powder will reduce potential contamination problems and may actually increase effectiveness.
Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures.
