In most instances, rats are very wary.
Rat droppings are small, dark, cylindrically shaped, and are about one-half inch to three-fourths inch long with blunt ends.
Rat guards are not without problems, however, because they may fray the insulation and cause short circuits.
Roof rats are susceptible to all of the various anticoagulant rodenticides, but less so than Norway rats.
If roof rats are seen exposed, it often indicates their hiding spaces are all filled by other rats or that they have been disturbed, such as by construction.
Since roof rats rarely dig burrows, burrow fumigants are of limited use; however, if they have constructed burrows, then fumigants that are effective on Norway rats, such as aluminum phosphide and gas cartridges, will be effective on roof rats.
Traps should be placed flush with walls in areas of highest travel (as determined by Inspection).
The nature of damage to outdoor vegetation can often provide clues as to whether it is caused by the roof or Norway rat.
Roof rats usually require water daily, though their local diet may provide an adequate amount if it is high in water content.
Most pest control companies set rat traps, perhaps squirt some flammable expansion foam at very obvious holes, and then put you on a monthly service to remove the rats that are still getting in to your home.
The young are born in a nest about 21 to 23 days after conception.
Shooting is rarely effective by itself and should be done in conjunction with trapping or baiting programs.
Within a year, one female may be responsible for up to 40 new rodents.
The product label is the law and dictates the product’s location of use and use patterns.
Trim all tree branches to further prevent entry.
For the characteristics of the various anticoagulant rodenticides see Norway Rats.
Inspection is an important first step in getting rid of rats.
For example, only zinc phosphide can be applied on the ground to control rats in sugarcane or macadamia orchards, and the second-generation anticoagulants, cholecalciferol and bromethalin, can be used only in and around buildings, not around crops or away from buildings even in non crop situations.
Specifications may vary depending on bait manufacturer even though the active ingredient may be the same.
Lives up to one year.
Once you are confident that you have caught all of the rats that are in the attic, then it will be time to check for any insulation or wires in the attic that need to be replaced, and for any nesting material to remove, and feces to clean up.
Dense shrubbery, vine-covered trees and fences, and vine ground cover make ideal harborage for roof rats.
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.
At about 3 months of age they are completely independent of the mother and are reproductively mature.
