What are Rats?

  • Rat Droppings

Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways. At present there are three rodenticides—zinc phosphide, cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), and bromethalin—registered and available for roof rat control. For rats, all openings greater than 1/2" should be sealed. It is difficult to find suitable places to lay the tracking powder that will not create a potential problem of contaminating food or materials below the placement sites. For more detailed information, see Rodent-proof Construction and Exclusion Methods. Rat guards are not without problems, however, because they may fray the insulation and cause short circuits. It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing. Lives up to one year.

Once you know the location of the rats, you can set traps or place bait. Any reputable nuisance wildlife company will have spent money on licensing, liability insurance, and a host of other business expenses. Roof rats usually require water daily, though their local diet may provide an adequate amount if it is high in water content. Roof rats entering homes are generally found in raised or secure enclosures such as walls, cabinets, attics, and false ceilings. The only way to solve a rat or mouse problem is to find every last point of entry into the house, and seal it shut. Attach rat guards to overhead utility wires and maintain them regularly. Also, carry out a visual examination of the attic to find the holes they were using to get in and out of the attic. Hantavirus - a potentially lethal virus if humans come in contact with rat urine or feces.

  • Rat Infestation

Sightings & Sounds - Since rodents are nocturnal and live secretively under normal circumstances, you can be sure that regular daytime rodent sightings indicate a heavy infestation. Grease marks are produced as the rodent travels along an edge, and the oils in their fur are deposited. I'm not going to go into detail about harnesses and chicken ladders and such, but be careful! Then, when in the attic, wear a respirator - you don't want to breathe in fiberglass insulation, dust or mold, or the variety of diseases associated with rats. For more info on general rat control, go to my main rat removal page, or my extensive instructional how to get rid of rats page. Rats leave the attic during the night, to go out and forage for water and food. In some situations in which the rats have been eliminated, cats that are good hunters may prevent reinfestation. Most commercial baits are registered for both species of rats and for house mice, but often they are less acceptable to roof rats than to the other species. Grease marks are produced as the rodent travels along an edge, and the oils in their fur are deposited.
