About Roof Rats

Roof rat control Wildlife X TeamRoof rats are blackish or brownish medium-sized, slender rats. They have long, naked, scaly tails that are usually longer than the head and body combined.

Rats live in close proximity to humans. They usually make their nests in attics, rafters, and crossbeams in buildings, under or along pipes, beams or wires, up and down the studs, or along the horizontal ceiling joists. They often leave a dark-colored layer of grease and dirt to mark their travel ways. The roof rat is nocturnal; you only see them in the daylight if populations if their populations are very high. In the southern United States, roof rats are very common.

Roof rats eat grains, meats, and almost any item that has nutritional value. They breed throughout the year, with two peaks of production in February and March and again in May and June. The period of least activity is in July and August. The gestation period of the roof rat is approximately 21 days, and the number of young per litter averages around seven. The young rats at birth are naked, blind, and nearly helpless.

The roof rat is destructive to property and food items. It also easily transmits human diseases.
