They may also enter through ill-fitted doors, windows, or screens, and air vents that are not in sound or working order. They are usually a shiny black, but may vary according to diet. These tactics have been ruled fraudulent by the FTC, and they DO NOT WORK. 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. Pesticides must be registered for rat control by federal and/or state authorities and used in accordance with label directions. METHOD OF CONTROL: First of all, mothballs or ammonia won't make them leave, nor will ultrasonic sound emitters or strobe lights. 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. In dense populations, roof rats will establish a social hierarchy, wherein dominant males mate more than subordinate males.

Rats are responsible for the spread of many diseases. Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways. 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. Both roof rats and Norway rats have a well-developed sense of smell and are wary of new things that are introduced into their home range. The first step in controlling a roof rat infestation is to properly identify the rodents. The only way to solve a rat or mouse problem is to find every last point of entry into the house, and seal it shut. Traps may be nailed to beams or studs and secured to pipes with wires. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide.

It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing. The efficacy of such products for rats is generally lacking. Within a year, one female may be responsible for up to 40 new rodents. 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. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide. As their name suggests, roof rats may be found in elevated areas such as trees, rafters, attics and roofs. Grease marks (from the oil and dirt of rats) often appear along walls next to runways.
