Shooting is rarely effective by itself and should be done in conjunction with trapping or baiting programs. As their name suggests, roof rats may be found in elevated areas such as trees, rafters, attics and roofs. In food-storage facilities, the most prominent sign may be smudge marks, the result of oil and dirt rubbing off of their fur as they travel along their aerial routes. Rub marks - rats get coated with dirt and they like to rub against the walls to find their way around a room’s perimeter, since they can't see so well. 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). Rats are easier to exclude than mice because rats a typically larger. Check the repairs you've done, to make sure no new areas have been chewed open. A new second-generation anticoagulant, difethialone, is presently being developed and EPA registration is anticipated in the near future.

  • Rat Diseases

Rodenticides were once categorized as acute (single-dose) or chronic (multiple dose) toxicants. 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. In the third week they begin to take solid food. Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits. Bubonic Plague - the famous disease that nearly wiped out humanity during the Middle Ages was eventually traced back to parasites like fleas carried by rats. Fur is smooth. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide. Control methods must reflect an understanding of the roof rat’s habitat requirements, reproductive capabilities, food habits, life history, behavior, senses, movements, and the dynamics of its population structure.

Hantavirus - a potentially lethal virus if humans come in contact with rat urine or feces. Bubonic Plague - the famous disease that nearly wiped out humanity during the Middle Ages was eventually traced back to parasites like fleas carried by rats. Roof rats are also food hoarders, stashing supplies of food such as seeds and nuts. They may live in the landscaping of one residence and feed at another. Roof rats are not protected by law and can be controlled any time with mechanical or chemical methods. Tracking powders are used much less often for roof rats than for Norway rats because roof rats frequent overhead areas within buildings. While you are preventing future rat population growth through inspection, sanitation, and exclusion, you will also want to begin working towards elimination of the population that is already present through trapping and baiting. Mating generally peaks in the warmer months of the year, but may occur year round in some areas.
