  • Rat Infestation

  • What if a rat got inside my house?

  • What is the best bait to trap a rat?

Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption. Seal any openings larger than ¼ inch with caulk, wood, mesh, or other appropriate materials. This is why traps and bait stations may be avoided for a day or two. That is very costly! Do the job ONCE by a wildlife operator, NOT A PEST CONTROL COMPANY, get it done, and you'll be rat-free forever. In homes, the attic and garage rafters close to the infestation are the best trapping sites. In most of our urban areas, Norway rats may be seen scurrying around after dark looking for food in garbage cans and other places where human refuse is found. Cage trapping is often considered to be the most humane way of dealing with an animal problem, and certainly when it comes to larger animals it is fair to say that it can be effective. The wildlife operator will seal shut all the rat entry points, and that's the ONLY way to solve a rat problem forever.

Typically, 3 or more litters are produced annually. Norway rats are common around human residences and industrial and commercial areas. They may eat vegetation, but prefer to meat or meat-related wastes. Such caches may be found in a dismantled wood pile, attic, or behind boxes in a garage. It is found in every state. The ears and tail are nearly hairless and they are typically 12 to 18 inches long including the tail and weigh 10 to 16 ounces. Specifications may vary depending on bait manufacturer even though the active ingredient may be the same. Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces.

When droppings are seen, it is a good practice to remove those droppings and later inspect to see whether new droppings were deposited. They may try to sell you poison stations for exterior rat control, however the rats only find their way back into your attic or walls to die. Droppings are another good indicator of roof rat activity. Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control. When rodent-proofing against roof rats, pay close attention to the roof and roof line areas to assure all accesses are closed.
