Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species.
I highly recommend snap traps, not live cage traps, certainly not glue boards, and most definitely not poison! Never poison rats, it doesn't solve the problem and it just creates more problems.
Fur is smooth.
It is unlikely, however, they will be any more effective for roof rats than for Norway rats.
Out-of-doors, roof rats may be present in low to moderate numbers with little sign in the way of tracks or droppings or runs and burrows.
Norway rats are also polygamous and form colonies of many males and females.
Roof rats can be controlled with the same baits used for Norway rats.
A control operation, therefore, must reduce numbers to a very low level; otherwise, rats will not only reproduce rapidly, but often quickly exceed their former density for a short period of time.
In general, glue boards are more effective for house mice than for either of the rat species.
Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces.
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.
Remove pre harvest fruits or nuts that drop in backyards.
Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything.
They have coarse, brown fur, with lighter fur on the undersides.
Rat guards are not without problems, however, because they may fray the insulation and cause short circuits.
Successful long-term rat control is not simple.
These kill traps are often baited with whole nuts and are most useful in trapping rats in trees.
The social behavior of free-living roof rats is very difficult to study and, as a result, has received less attention than that of Norway rats.
Overhead trap sets are particularly useful for roof rats.
A mouse's tracks will be much shorter.
As their name suggests, roof rats may be found in elevated areas such as trees, rafters, attics and roofs.
Rub marks - rats get coated with dirt and they like to rub against the walls to find their way around a room’s perimeter, since they can't see so well.
Hundreds may be nesting in a city block-in underground burrows, in sewers, on roofs, inside buildings-with few people in the area realizing it.
There is less tendency to see droppings, urine, or tracks on the floor in buildings because rats may live overhead between floors, above false ceilings, or in utility spaces, and venture down to feed or obtain food.
