Trapping Removing clutter and any debris that creates hiding places rats can use as harborage sites. In residences where rats may be living in the attic and feeding outdoors, the damage may be restricted to tearing up insulation for nesting or gnawing electrical wiring. Exclusion and sealing of sites greater than ½ inch (about the size of a dime) using screens, flashing, door sweeps and other materials to keep rats from entering a structure. Roof Rats can enter homes and other structures through openings as small as ½ inch. Roof rats are likely to found in coastal, near-coastal areas and port cities. Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome is transferred via inhalation of rodent urine, droppings or saliva. Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource.

Roof rats can also enter openings in walls, eaves and roof from the branches of trees. A new second-generation anticoagulant, difethialone, is presently being developed and EPA registration is anticipated in the near future. Rats may live up to three years, but a lifespan of one and a half years is more common. Since none of these are anticoagulants, all can be used to control anticoagulant resistant populations of roof rats. Rat densities (numbers of rats in a given area) are determined primarily by the suitability of the habitat—the amount of available nutritional and palatable food and nearby protective cover (shelter or harborage). In some situations, pet food and poorly managed garbage may represent a major food resource. Check the traps periodically, remove any dead trapped rats, and reset the traps. You can't ignore wildlife problems, because of the damage and health risks that rats cause.

Trapping is the preferred method of indoor control. A rat does not want to be exposed to danger outside for very long! If you think you can just seal shut the entry holes into the house during the daylight when they are outside, that is incorrect. Some of the more important diseases associated with rats include Rat-Bite Fever and Leptospirosis. Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures. Roof rats can also enter openings in walls, eaves and roof from the branches of trees. The whiskers and guard hairs enable the animals to travel adjacent to walls in the dark and in burrows. Look for fresh droppings. Baiting - This method uses poisons, or rodenticides, to attract and kill rodents.
