Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available. Where anticoagulant resistance is known or suspected, the use of first-generation anticoagulants should be avoided in favor of the second-generation anticoagulants or one of the non anticoagulant rodenticides like bromethalin or cholecalciferol. It is found in every state. Within a year, one female may be responsible for up to 40 new rodents. The preferred habitat of Norway rats is just about anywhere people reside. Most pest control companies set rat traps, perhaps squirt some flammable expansion foam at very obvious holes, and then put you on a monthly service to remove the rats that are still getting in to your home.

The smallest imperfections during the construction and roofing of a home can lead to a rat infestation.

In tropical or semi tropical regions, the season may be nearly year-round. In homes, the attic and garage rafters close to the infestation are the best trapping sites. For a one-time fee, we trap and remove all rats, and identify and reconstruct all rat entry points. The traditional style snap traps are still among the best ways of dealing with a rat problem, and these are simple to set and bait, and you should look to place them in areas where the rats are active, so where you can see feces and smudges on the walls. Rat droppings are small, dark, cylindrically shaped, and are about one-half inch to three-fourths inch long with blunt ends. When necessary, roof rats will travel considerable distances (100 to 300 feet [30 to 90 m]) for food. Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient. Roof Rats are commonly called black rats and are smaller than Norway rats.

Anticoagulant paraffin-type bait blocks provide an alternative to bait stations containing pelleted or loose cereal bait. One of the more common techniques for bait use is to place the bait formulation in a tamper proof rodent bait station that protects the bait from accidental exposure to non-target animals or people. 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. These devices must be viewed with considerable skepticism, because research has not proven them effective. 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. The nature of damage to outdoor vegetation can often provide clues as to whether it is caused by the roof or Norway rat. This is a great supplementary treatment to trapping when you are dealing with larger rodent populations, or for outdoor populations. Listen for rat evidence, like their scurrying and running noises in the attic, and scratching in the walls.
