Roof rats - habitat & prevention

Habits

Roof rats are known for the damage they cause by chewing on materials and eating stored foods.

Habitat

Roof rats can be found in the upper parts of buildings, and can also be found under, in and around structures. They only need a space of one-half inch to get into buildings.

Threats

Roof rats secured their place in history by spreading the highly dangerous bubonic plague. They support many ectoparasites and urinate on food.

Roof Rats can be found in TX, LA, AR, MS, AL, GA, FA, NC, SC, VA, MD, CA, WA, OR

Prevention

To prevent rats from entering a home, seal up any holes or cracks larger than a quarter. Remove sources of moisture and harborage.
