Most of the states in the US interior are free of roof rats, but isolated infestations, probably stemming from infested cargo shipments, can occur. Leptospirosis - a disease transmitted from contact with rat urine that is serious enough to cause humans to bleed in the lungs. Other vegetable, melon, berry, and fruit crops occasionally suffer relatively minor damage when adjacent to infested habitat such as riparian vegetation. Becomes sexually mature between two and five months, producing four to six litters per year that consist of six to eight young each. Remove pre harvest fruits or nuts that drop in backyards. Trap at left is modified by fastening a piece of cardboard to expand its trigger size (traps with expanded treadles can also be purchased from several manufacturers). Proper ladder safety is a must, as is roof safety. The advantages of trapping when compared to baiting include: 1) Trapping does not require the use of harmful poisons; 2) Trapping allows the user to know whether the rat was killed, whereas with baiting the rat will wander off and die somewhere else; 3) Trapping eliminates odor problems by allowing you to dispose of the rat carcass.

Their presence is typically detected by the occurrence of their droppings, holes chewed into bags and containers, and chewed nesting materials. This cost will vary a great deal, depending on how many repairs are needed, what part of the country you live in, how many rats are in the attic, how many service trips are necessary, if you need cleanup, etc. Use enough traps to eliminate the rodents quickly. Other rat signs may also assist, but be aware that both species may be present. Young rats generally cannot be trapped until about 1 month old. If you've sealed the house correctly, then you shouldn't trap any new rats after just the first three days. In urban settings, cats and owls prey on roof rats but have little if any effect on well-established populations. Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces.

Read more about what rats eat. They may be frightened by sound-producing devices for awhile but they become accustomed to constant and frequently repeated sounds quickly. Scratching sounds - if you hear gnawing and the sounds of scampering in the walls or around the house you might have rats. Rats have acute hearing and can readily detect noises. They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide. Severe pruning and/or removal of certain ornamentals are often required to obtain a degree of lasting rat control. Exclusion is an important rodent control technique.
