The underside of the roof rat’s body is grayish to white.
Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything.
Make sure that all doors, windows and screens fit tightly in their frames and repair those that do not.
POISON IS A HORRIBLE IDEA FOR MANY MANY REASONS - poison won't solve the problem, and it'll just create more problems.
They may eat vegetation, but prefer to meat or meat-related wastes.
They also feed on a variety of vegetative parts of ornamental and native plant materials.
Store pet food in sealed containers and do not leave it out at night.
Pesticides must be registered for rat control by federal and/or state authorities and used in accordance with label directions.
In food-processing and storage facilities, they will feed on nearly all food items, though their food preferences may differ from those of Norway rats.
This cost will vary a great deal, depending on how many repairs are needed, what part of the country you live in, how many rats are in the attic, how many service trips are necessary, if you need cleanup, etc.
Seal any openings larger than ¼ inch with caulk, wood, mesh, or other appropriate materials.
While rats can live in the walls, the kitchen, under the house, etc. the most common place for rats to inhabit in a house is the attic.
Lethal control often combines the use of rodenticides with non-toxic control measures such as snap traps or glue boards.
Although roof rats have not yet been connected to HPS, everyone is advised to use caution when dealing with an infestation.
While you are preventing future rat population growth through inspection, sanitation, and exclusion, you will also want to begin working towards elimination of the population that is already present through trapping and baiting.
Roof rat droppings are 12 to 13 mm with pointed ends, whereas Norway rat droppings are 18 to 20 mm and capsule shaped.
Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control.
I'm not going to go into detail about harnesses and chicken ladders and such, but be careful! Then, when in the attic, wear a respirator - you don't want to breathe in fiberglass insulation, dust or mold, or the variety of diseases associated with rats.
It actually makes it worse, because the rats are multiplying, dying, defecating, destroying insulation, chewing wires and chewing air ducts, while you wait for your next service.
Pelleted or loose cereal anticoagulant baits are used extensively in tamper-resistant bait boxes or stations for a permanent baiting program for Norway rats and house mice.
Having completed the repairs to wires, and possibly vacuumed feces or replaced insulation (not usually necessary) fumigate the attic to kill any remaining parasites or spores from the rats.
Check the repairs you've done, to make sure no new areas have been chewed open.
Trapping is an effective alternative to pesticides and recommended in some situations.
Roof rats can be carriers of diseases.
