Roof rats entering homes are generally found in raised or secure enclosures such as walls, cabinets, attics, and false ceilings.
Traps may be nailed to beams or studs and secured to pipes with wires.
No, they sleep in the attic all day.
Rickettsial Diseases - various forms of Typhus fall into this category and can also be carried by rat-borne parasites.
Shooting is rarely effective by itself and should be done in conjunction with trapping or baiting programs.
Rats rely more on their keen senses of smell, taste, touch, and hearing than on vision.
Lights (flashing or continuously on) may repel rats at first, but rats will quickly acclimate to them.
In food-storage facilities, the most prominent sign may be smudge marks, the result of oil and dirt rubbing off of their fur as they travel along their aerial routes.
They may live in the landscaping of one residence and feed at another.
Their use for roof rats is limited to control within structures because roof rats rarely produce burrows.
The young are born in a nest about 21 to 23 days after conception.
In controlling roof rats with rodenticides, a sharp distinction must be made between control in and around buildings and control away from buildings such as in landfills and dumps, along drainage ditches and streams, in sewer water evaporation ponds, and in parks.
Norway rats build their nests in underground burrows where they mate, rear their young, store food and seek refuge from predators.
Citrus trees, having very low hanging skirts, are more prone to damage because they provide rats with protection.
Fur is smooth.
Tracking powders play an important role in structural rodent control.
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 is an important rodent control technique.
Other vegetable, melon, berry, and fruit crops occasionally suffer relatively minor damage when adjacent to infested habitat such as riparian vegetation.
The Norway rat is also called brown rat, house rat, sewer rat, and wharf rat.
Rats are nocturnal and are not commonly seen.
They can successfully mate throughout the year, meaning that if you have rats in the attic, then there is a good possibility that they will have a nest of baby rats that you will need to deal with as well.
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.
The nature of damage to outdoor vegetation can often provide clues as to whether it is caused by the roof or Norway rat.
