Urine Stains & Odors - Rodent urine deposited on rodent runways appear as a line of fine drops or streaks under an ultraviolet flashlight, or black light tool. 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. Both roof rats and Norway rats have a well-developed sense of smell and are wary of new things that are introduced into their home range. Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits. Most commercial baits are registered for both species of rats and for house mice, but often they are less acceptable to roof rats than to the other species. The efficacy of such products for rats is generally lacking. Also, roof rats are likely to consume insects. Pesticides must be registered for rat control by federal and/or state authorities and used in accordance with label directions.
