Facts on Roof Rats
The Roof Rat is about 40cm in length and is either black or brown in color. These rodents have a pointed nose, smooth fur, and their body is more slender than the Norway Rat. Like their name suggests, the Roof Rat likes to live in high places such as roofs, attics, and trees but they can be found on the ground as well. They eat fruits and nuts but will consume almost anything if needed and they also hoard their food for later consumption.
These rats live for about one year and female Roof Rats produce 4-6 litters (6-8 rats each) per year. Since these rats breed all year, 40 rodents per female is possible.
Roof Rat Infestation and Control
Roof Rat droppings are the most common sign of an infestation along with grease stains alongside pathways where they travel. If you spot a Roof Rat in your house, there is a high probability that it is already infested. Taking care of these rats as soon as possible is important as Roof Rats can be carrier of various diseases and they can spread through contact, bites, or fleas.
To prevent Roof Rats from entering your home, keep windows and doors sealed, fix any cracks and crevices exposed, and trim tree branches around the outside of your house to prevent them from entering. If an infestation of Roof Rats is found in your home, call professional pest control specialists immediately.
