Wild rodents can cause home damage, contaminate food, and cause illness in people and pets.  Rodent infestations are more likely to occur when events, such as flooding, displace them. To avoid rodent infestation, remove potential rodent food and water sources and store food for people and pets in sealed containers. Clear away debris and other material that rodents can hide in.  Safely clean up rodent droppings, urine and nesting areas, always wearing gloves and spraying material with disinfectant until thoroughly soaked before attempting to remove or clean.

  • What can rats climb?

Rodent-proofing against roof rats usually requires more time to find entry points than for Norway rats because of their greater climbing ability. The common wooden snap traps that are effective for Norway rats are effective for roof rats. They often eat all the pulp from oranges while the fruit is still hanging on the tree, leaving only the empty rind. Trapping is the preferred method of indoor control. Eliminate vines growing on buildings and, when feasible, overhanging tree limbs that may be used as travel routes. Roof rats are prodigious breeders. Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off of the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist. You can often find smudges as an indication of rats, but they can often stay on walls for a long time, so it might be from an old infestation.

  • Baiting Tips for Roof Rats

Within a rat colony, they may be a few rats that are extra cautious and manage to avoid traps or eating rodent baits. Mating generally peaks in the warmer months of the year, but may occur year round in some areas. The first step in controlling a roof rat infestation is to properly identify the rodents. Their burrowing habitats include soil along building foundations, under woodpiles and other piles of debris. The preferred habitat of Norway rats is just about anywhere people reside. 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. Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient. Hundreds may be nesting in a city block-in underground burrows, in sewers, on roofs, inside buildings-with few people in the area realizing it. It is found in every state. A few baits are strong enough to cause death with a single feeding. They are usually a shiny black, but may vary according to diet.

  • Dealing With Roof Rat Problems

The roof rat is more at home in warm climates, and apparently less adaptable, than the Norway rat, which is why it has not spread throughout the country. Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways. Rats tend to segregate themselves socially in both space and time. The wildlife operator will seal shut all the rat entry points, and that's the ONLY way to solve a rat problem forever. Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions. Seal any openings larger than ¼ inch with caulk, wood, mesh, or other appropriate materials. Setting a trap to collect a few specimens may be the only sure way to identify the rat or rats involved. When necessary, roof rats will travel considerable distances (100 to 300 feet [30 to 90 m]) for food. Bait stations are sometimes difficult to place for roof rat control because of the rodents’ overhead traveling characteristics. Observation Rats are not usually seen during the day unless disturbed from their protective harborage or because of intolerable competition from other rats. Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits.
