Baiting Tips for Roof Rats

They can often be seen at night running along overhead utility lines or fences. The Norway rat produces six to eight litters of six to nine young per year. If living under a refrigerator or freezer, they may disable the unit by gnawing the electrical wires. Only construction grade materials are used. These kill traps are often baited with whole nuts and are most useful in trapping rats in trees. Because roof rats are fast and agile, they are not easy prey for mammalian or avian predators. If the food is in an exposed area and too large to be eaten quickly, but not too large to be moved, they will usually carry it to a hiding place before eating it. Floor drains and sewer pipes should have tight-fitting grates with openings less than 1/4 inch in diameter.

Exclusion and sealing of sites greater than ½ inch (about the size of a dime) using screens, flashing, door sweeps and other materials to keep rats from entering a structure. Rats are nocturnal and are not commonly seen. Make sure that all doors, windows and screens fit tightly in their frames and repair those that do not. There are holes all over - missing roof vent screens, plumbing stacks, gaps between the roof and fascia board, gaps in the siding, areas where pipes go into the house, etc. Without this knowledge, both time and money are wasted, and the chances of failure are increased. Emphasis should be placed on the removal of as much harborage as is practical. They use their keen sense of smell to locate and select food items, identify territories and travel routes, and recognize other rats, especially those of the opposite sex. 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.

Check Your Attic!

  • Do rats have bones? How can they fit in such small holes?

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. Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species. The commercially available, expanded plastic treadle traps, such as the Victor Professional Rat Trap, are particularly effective if properly located in well-traveled paths. Eliminate vines growing on buildings and, when feasible, overhanging tree limbs that may be used as travel routes. Within a population, some rats will be easy to control, some difficult. There are holes all over - missing roof vent screens, plumbing stacks, gaps between the roof and fascia board, gaps in the siding, areas where pipes go into the house, etc. A vegetation-free margin around the grove will slow rat invasions because rats are more susceptible to predation when crossing unfamiliar open areas. You hear the scratching rodents in your attic at night, correct? So you might assume that the rats are entering your attic at night.
