  • Rat Infestation

Roof rats can be controlled with the same baits used for Norway rats. If rats are seen during the day that usually means a very large rodent population is nearby. In some situations in which the rats have been eliminated, cats that are good hunters may prevent reinfestation. Bait stations are sometimes difficult to place for roof rat control because of the rodents’ overhead traveling characteristics. They have coarse, brown fur, with lighter fur on the undersides. Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics. Rats have been plaguing humans for centuries, famous for their continuously-growing sharp teeth, their desire for human food, their tendency to get into homes and buildings and create nests and their health problems - rats are the essence of a pest. Roof rats are adept climbers and not surprisingly are apt to build their nests in locations above ground.

At birth they are hairless, and their eyes are closed. Many rats may cache or hoard considerable amounts of solid food, which they eat later. Adult roof rats usually live about one year. Like the Norway rat, the roof rat is implicated in the transmission of a number of diseases to humans, including murine typhus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis (food poisoning), rat-bite fever, and plague. 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. Roof rats are not accomplished swimmers and are not usually found in sewers. Sightings & Sounds - Since rodents are nocturnal and live secretively under normal circumstances, you can be sure that regular daytime rodent sightings indicate a heavy infestation. Tunnel boxes or bait boxes specially designed to expose a layer of toxic powder will reduce potential contamination problems and may actually increase effectiveness.
