Tracking powders play an important role in structural rodent control. Proper ladder safety is a must, as is roof safety. In dense populations, roof rats will establish a social hierarchy, wherein dominant males mate more than subordinate males. Grease marks are produced as the rodent travels along an edge, and the oils in their fur are deposited. Many rats may cache or hoard considerable amounts of solid food, which they eat later. In tropical or semi tropical regions, the season may be nearly year-round. There is often a correlation between rat problems and the keeping of dogs, especially where dogs are fed outdoors. Roof rats are likely to found in coastal, near-coastal areas and port cities.

They prefer to consume fruits (sometimes referred to as the “fruit rat” or “citrus rat”) and nuts, although roof rats are omnivorous and will feed on almost anything available to them. Its worldwide geographic distribution suggests that it is much more suited to tropical and semitropical climates. Within a rat colony, they may be a few rats that are extra cautious and manage to avoid traps or eating rodent baits. Some of the first-generation anticoagulants (pindone and warfarin) are available as soluble rodenticides from which water baits can be prepared. Generally, a few more feedings are necessary to produce death with the first-generation anticoagulants (warfarin, pindone, diphacinone, and chlorophacinone) but this is less significant with the second-generation anticoagulants (bromadiolone and brodifacoum). Snap traps are actually the very best way to do it. 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. 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.
