Humane Roof Rat Removal in Valley Mobile Home Park Florida
Norway rats and the roof rats are very different in their habits, habitats and behavior, so the first requirement of a rat treatment program is to correctly identify the rat and develop a treatment plan that works for that species.
Roof rat droppings are 12 to 13 mm with pointed ends, whereas Norway rat droppings are 18 to 20 mm and capsule shaped.
A few instances of first-generation anticoagulant resistance have been reported in roof rats; although not common, it may be underestimated because so few resistance studies have been conducted on this species.
Also, Norway rats may prey upon fish, poultry, mice, birds, small reptiles and amphibians.
Some type of clean food can be used to entice the rats to the boxes, or the tracking powders can be used in conjunction with an anticoagulant bait, with both placed in the same station.
They also consume seeds, nuts, berries, and insects.
Typically, 3 or more litters are produced annually.

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.
Within a year, one female may be responsible for up to 40 new rodents.
Since none of these are anticoagulants, all can be used to control anticoagulant resistant populations of roof rats.
Rats tend to segregate themselves socially in both space and time.
Then the rats should be trapped and removed.
They are often found living on the second floor of a warehouse in which Norway rats occupy the first or basement floor.
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.
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.
Timing a sealup for rats is impossible, because they leave for short periods, and they don't all leave at the same time of night.
Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways.
Rodents sniff out the bait and return to feed upon it continuously until the poison kills them.
The young are able to breed before they are four months old.
Excellent climber that can often be found in the upper parts of structures.
Lives up to one year.
Becomes sexually mature between two and five months, producing four to six litters per year that consist of six to eight young each.
Roof rats are prodigious breeders.
