Humane Rat Control in Palms Trailer Park Florida
You can often find smudges as an indication of rats, but they can often stay on walls for a long time, so it might be from an old infestation.
Certain first-generation anticoagulants are registered as tracking powders for roof rat control; however, none of the second generation materials are so registered.
They have coarse, brown fur, with lighter fur on the undersides.
Usually the peaks in breeding occur in the spring and fall.
Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient.
Parks with natural and artificial ponds, or reservoirs may also be infested.
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.

Rats may live up to three years, but a lifespan of one and a half years is more common.
Grease marks (from the oil and dirt of rats) often appear along walls next to runways.
Bait stations are sometimes difficult to place for roof rat control because of the rodents’ overhead traveling characteristics.
Norway rats build their nests in underground burrows where they mate, rear their young, store food and seek refuge from predators.
A few instances of first-generation anticoagulant resistance have been reported in roof rats; although not common, it may be underestimated because so few resistance studies have been conducted on this species.
Nests and Burrows - check behind shelves, boxes, behind the fridge, anywhere that a rat might like to use as a hiding space.
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.
