Roof Rats and All That Racket

Rodent Control | March 6, 2018

Roof Rats and All That Racket

Just after midnight and it sounds like there are 15 teenagers on your roof bowling – It is probably not teenagers. It is more likely to be roof rats. Generally, they forage for food during the night and into the early morning, which is why they seem so loud. They live in all areas of your house, but prefer to nest in the higher spaces, in attics and sub space in your ceiling. Heat, rises and those areas are often dry and warm – a perfect location to raise a family.

Early spring is a time when most rodent populations are very noticeable. It is not yet warm enough for them to venture outdoors and there is not a lot of food available until late spring and early summer. The longer, colder winter months is a time for birthing litters and raising young and by spring, the young are having babies too.

These populations must be controlled. Not only do all these rats and mice urinate everywhere and leave droppings, they attract predators. Why do we find snakes in attics? Usually, because they are hunting rodents and small mammals. Nobody needs to retrieve the holiday decorations only to find a warm and cozy rattlesnake or viper.

There are a few approaches to managing rodent populations and prevention is one of the most powerful tools you can employ. If you think that roof rats are loud at midnight, wait until you have a raccoon or possum in your attic.

At Roberts Termite & Pest Control, we work with you to remove pest infestations even roof rats. Snakes, and raccoons. If it turns out that there are teenagers on your roof bowling, we suggest calling their mothers.
