Liquid baits may be an effective alternative in situations where normal baits are not readily accepted, especially where water is scarce or where rats must travel some distance to reach water.
When droppings are seen, it is a good practice to remove those droppings and later inspect to see whether new droppings were deposited.
Other rat signs may also assist, but be aware that both species may be present.
Females can breed year-round.
Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences.
Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off of the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist.
Sometimes rats get into the kitchen area and feed on stored foods.
That is not the case! They sleep in your attic all day, and then at dusk they wake up, and start moving around, and that's why you hear them after dark.
In tree crops, some cultural practices can be helpful.
These can be identified by the brown smudges of grease that comes from the rat's fur, and should all be sealed to prevent future rat infestations in the attic.
Your inspection process must include ladder work and climbing on a roof.
There are two basic methods of rat population reduction:
Since roof rats rarely dig burrows, burrow fumigants are of limited use; however, if they have constructed burrows, then fumigants that are effective on Norway rats, such as aluminum phosphide and gas cartridges, will be effective on roof rats.
Listen for rat evidence, like their scurrying and running noises in the attic, and scratching in the walls.
Timing a sealup for rats is impossible, because they leave for short periods, and they don't all leave at the same time of night.
Then the rats should be trapped and removed.
In agricultural settings, weasels, foxes, coyotes, and other predators prey on roof rats, but their take is inconsequential as a population control factor.
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.
These rats are nocturnal and are excellent climbers.
The Norway rat is also called brown rat, house rat, sewer rat, and wharf rat.
Norway rats and the roof rats are very different in their habits, habitats and behavior, so the first requirement of a rat treatment program is to correctly identify the rat and develop a treatment plan that works for that species.
Shooting is rarely effective by itself and should be done in conjunction with trapping or baiting programs.
Prune to raise the skirts and remove any nests constructed in the trees.
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.
