Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything. These rodents have been known to consume tree bark, meat and grain. While you will not reasonably be able to compensate for every possible rodent entry, you can greatly reduce the ease of entry for rodents (and thereby, reduce the population size) by taking the following measures: Use proper garbage and refuse disposal containers and implement exterior sanitation programs. Sometimes they transmit disease indirectly, for example, when fleas first bite an infected rat, then a person. Wire-mesh, live traps (Tomahawk®, Havahart®) are available for trapping rats. The muzzle of the roof rat is pointed and the overall appearance of the roof rat is much more streamlined and sleek looking than a Norway rat. Tracking powders play an important role in structural rodent control.

The advantages of trapping when compared to baiting include: 1) Trapping does not require the use of harmful poisons; 2) Trapping allows the user to know whether the rat was killed, whereas with baiting the rat will wander off and die somewhere else; 3) Trapping eliminates odor problems by allowing you to dispose of the rat carcass. If roof rats are seen exposed, it often indicates their hiding spaces are all filled by other rats or that they have been disturbed, such as by construction. Scratching sounds - if you hear gnawing and the sounds of scampering in the walls or around the house you might have rats. Always be sure that fresh bait is available continuously until rats stop feeding. Grease marks (from the oil and dirt of rats) often appear along walls next to runways. Like the Norway rat, the roof rat is implicated in the transmission of a number of diseases to humans, including murine typhus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis (food poisoning), rat-bite fever, and plague. In most instances, rats are very wary. The muzzle of the roof rat is pointed and the overall appearance of the roof rat is much more streamlined and sleek looking than a Norway rat.

  • Dealing With Roof Rat Problems

That is not the case! They sleep in your attic all day, and then at dusk they wake up, and start moving around, and that's why you hear them after dark. From causing plague epidemics (the "Black Death" of Europe) to rat-bite fever, whether feeding on stored grain or gnawing electric wires, rats are enemies of humankind. Excellent climber that can often be found in the upper parts of structures. Roof rats frequently enter buildings from the roof or from accesses near overhead utility lines, which they use to travel from area to area. Adults range in weight from about 5-10 ounces. You hear the scratching rodents in your attic at night, correct? So you might assume that the rats are entering your attic at night. If you do it wrong the first time, you'll just end up paying more later. Let the rat control professionals go to work for you! We will get rid of rats in your house or business!
