Rat droppings are three times as large as mouse droppings. The nature of damage to outdoor vegetation can often provide clues as to whether it is caused by the roof or Norway rat. The only way to solve a rat or mouse problem is to find every last point of entry into the house, and seal it shut. By this time they have learned what is good to eat by experimenting with potential food items and by imitating their mother. The traditional style snap traps are still among the best ways of dealing with a rat problem, and these are simple to set and bait, and you should look to place them in areas where the rats are active, so where you can see feces and smudges on the walls. 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. Presently, only one such modified trap is commercially available. They can often be seen at night running along overhead utility lines or fences.

Bubonic plague was a scourge in Europe several times throughout history. Norway rats are a common mammalian pest of rice, but sometimes roof rats also feed on newly planted seed or the seedling as it emerges. The great adaptability of rats to human-created environments and the high fertility rate of rats make for quick recuperation of their populations. For rats, all openings greater than 1/2" should be sealed. Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics. Roof rats can also nest on the ground if necessary. Historically, infected fleas have transmitted serious plagues from rats to humans. Scientists have noted that the roof rat’s long tail is adapted to enhance their ability to climb and functions to assists them in balancing.

Such caches may be found in a dismantled wood pile, attic, or behind boxes in a garage. Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics. Roof rats also have an excellent sense of balance. In homes, the attic and garage rafters close to the infestation are the best trapping sites. 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. Becomes sexually mature between two and five months, producing four to six litters per year that consist of six to eight young each. Our professional wildlife professionals may not show you how to kill the rats but instead use rat repellents, rat fumigants and rat trapping systems to ensure the effectiveness of the rat control method, without physically harming the rats. Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off of the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist.
