 Roof Rats, can be Nomadic  

Working with rats for the last 36 years I have seen many rat infestations that would intimidate many of our professional pest control operators. Most of the rats that I have encountered over the years have been the Norway rat, but I can say the Roof Rat can be very interesting to deal with.  The Roof Rat has different habits and food preferences.  First let’s talk about the habits, Roof Rats can and will climb trees much like a squirrel, run along your power lines, and love to live in your attic, again like squirrels.  Are you getting the picture? Roof Rats will live in many of the same places that squirrels like too.

Now for the food, Roof rats prefer nuts and fruits, but will take high protein like meats. This is why your rat baits will kill both Roof and Norway rats. When trapping Roof Rats we will place snap traps and or sticky traps in the attics. Using live traps around the tree line where they might be seen. We also will recommend cutting your trees away from your home, this helps for Roof rats and Squirrels alike. If you have Roof Rats running along your power lines and entering into your attic this way, you should hire a professional company to install a baffle on the power lines to keep critters out.  

Now we want to talk about Nomadic Roof Rats. We have seen several homes that had a roof rat infestation and it just left before any treatment was done. We had thought at the time that some natural predator had displaced the rats, but a study was done in Florida several years ago, that made my mind go ding. This study basically said that some family groups of Roof Rats would stay in an area and then when the food got a little scarce they would move on to another location. The family group might have several different locations they visit and might even come back to the original one in a year or so. Roof Rats can be in your attic, if you live in Orlando or Jacksonville Florida.

The glue formulas in Catchmaster glue traps are effective for at least one (1) year in a home scenario, and for five (5) years unopened in a warehouse locale, giving you more value for your hard earned money. Catchmaster glue boards do not have oil in them like the competitions products use. Oil mixes with the body chemistry of the rodent and allows the rodent to escape. Oil also makes glue more susceptible to running or dripping in hot temperatures.
