Exclusion is an important rodent control technique. The young may continue to nurse until 4 or 5 weeks old. Hantavirus - a potentially lethal virus if humans come in contact with rat urine or feces. Some of the first-generation anticoagulants (pindone and warfarin) are available as soluble rodenticides from which water baits can be prepared.

Anticoagulants (slow-acting, chronic toxicants). Tunnel boxes or bait boxes specially designed to expose a layer of toxic powder will reduce potential contamination problems and may actually increase effectiveness. Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures. Liquid baits may be an effective alternative in situations where normal baits are not readily accepted, especially where water is scarce or where rats must travel some distance to reach water. Knowledge is limited on interspecific competition between the different genera and species of rats. The smallest imperfections during the construction and roofing of a home can lead to a rat infestation. Avoid using poison and glue traps, as these are inhumane and cause more problems than they solve. Anticoagulant paraffin-type bait blocks provide an alternative to bait stations containing pelleted or loose cereal bait.

  • Are cage traps a good option for rats?

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. Roof Rats are commonly called black rats and are smaller than Norway rats. The smallest imperfections during the construction and roofing of a home can lead to a rat infestation. Presently, only one such modified trap is commercially available. They move faster than Norway rats and are very agile climbers, which enables them to quickly escape predators. Roof rat droppings are 12 to 13 mm with pointed ends, whereas Norway rat droppings are 18 to 20 mm and capsule shaped. Norway rats build their nests in underground burrows where they mate, rear their young, store food and seek refuge from predators. Most information on this subject comes from populations confined in cages or outdoor pens.
