Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways.
Rats usually begin searching for food shortly after sunset.
Lights (flashing or continuously on) may repel rats at first, but rats will quickly acclimate to them.
Like the Norway rat, the roof rat is implicated in the transmission of a number of diseases to humans, including murine typhus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis (food poisoning), rat-bite fever, and plague.
Trapping is an effective alternative to pesticides and recommended in some situations.
Pesticides must be registered for rat control by federal and/or state authorities and used in accordance with label directions.
Norway rats are usually active at dusk or during the night and are inactive during daylight hours.
Then the rats should be trapped and removed.
Scientists have noted that the roof rat’s long tail is adapted to enhance their ability to climb and functions to assists them in balancing.
In sugarcane, they move into the field as the cane matures and feed on the cane stalks.
There are two basic methods of rat population reduction:
Other indicators can include grease marks along surfaces as well as nests.
Products sold as general animal repellents, based on taste and/or odor, are sometimes advertised to repel animals, including rats, from garbage bags.
As their name suggests, roof rats may be found in elevated areas such as trees, rafters, attics and roofs.
There are holes all over - missing roof vent screens, plumbing stacks, gaps between the roof and fascia board, gaps in the siding, areas where pipes go into the house, etc.
If you're not experienced in setting them, you may have some problems, so be careful.
Dense shrubbery, vine-covered trees and fences, and vine ground cover make ideal harborage for roof rats.
These kill traps are often baited with whole nuts and are most useful in trapping rats in trees.
Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control.
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.
Adult females are able to reproduce at 3-5 months old, can produce up to five litters each year with about 5-8 young in each litter.
Having completed the repairs to wires, and possibly vacuumed feces or replaced insulation (not usually necessary) fumigate the attic to kill any remaining parasites or spores from the rats.
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.
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.
