Roof rats are prodigious breeders. Roof rats are susceptible to all of the various anticoagulant rodenticides, but less so than Norway rats. While rats can live in the walls, the kitchen, under the house, etc. the most common place for rats to inhabit in a house is the attic. Some of their habitats include garbage dumps, sewers and fields. They also consume seeds, nuts, berries, and insects. As their name suggests, roof rats may be found in elevated areas such as trees, rafters, attics and roofs. Excellent climber that can often be found in the upper parts of structures. Urine Stains & Odors - Rodent urine deposited on rodent runways appear as a line of fine drops or streaks under an ultraviolet flashlight, or black light tool.

The total cost will probably run between $300 - $500 to remove all the rats and seal the entry holes shut, and it may seem more up-front than a low monthly deal, but you've got to do it right, and then you won't have to worry about rats any more. You can't ignore wildlife problems, because of the damage and health risks that rats cause. This type of rat control service does not ever solve the problem. Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences. Because roof rats are fast and agile, they are not easy prey for mammalian or avian predators. If living under a refrigerator or freezer, they may disable the unit by gnawing the electrical wires. In a human environment, the rodents will consume almost any food to which they have access. These techniques include improving sanitation for the affected location, eliminating hiding places, exclusion and may also include lethal methods such as traps and rodenticides.

Rats (especially Roof rats) are wary of new objects, new foods or changed in environment. Roof rats are likely to found in coastal, near-coastal areas and port cities. I'm not going to go into detail about harnesses and chicken ladders and such, but be careful! Then, when in the attic, wear a respirator - you don't want to breathe in fiberglass insulation, dust or mold, or the variety of diseases associated with rats. They may eat vegetation, but prefer to meat or meat-related wastes. Out-of-doors, roof rats may be present in low to moderate numbers with little sign in the way of tracks or droppings or runs and burrows. The muzzle of the roof rat is pointed and the overall appearance of the roof rat is much more streamlined and sleek looking than a Norway rat. Also, carry out a visual examination of the attic to find the holes they were using to get in and out of the attic. If living under a refrigerator or freezer, they may disable the unit by gnawing the electrical wires.
