Wild rodents can cause home damage, contaminate food, and cause illness in people and pets.  Rodent infestations are more likely to occur when events, such as flooding, displace them. To avoid rodent infestation, remove potential rodent food and water sources and store food for people and pets in sealed containers. Clear away debris and other material that rodents can hide in.  Safely clean up rodent droppings, urine and nesting areas, always wearing gloves and spraying material with disinfectant until thoroughly soaked before attempting to remove or clean.

In general, glue boards are more effective for house mice than for either of the rat species. Rats will also drag their tails, leaving a mark between their feet tracks. At birth they are hairless, and their eyes are closed. There are holes all over - missing roof vent screens, plumbing stacks, gaps between the roof and fascia board, gaps in the siding, areas where pipes go into the house, etc. Look for fresh droppings. At present there are three rodenticides—zinc phosphide, cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), and bromethalin—registered and available for roof rat control. In the third week they begin to take solid food. Many rats may cache or hoard considerable amounts of solid food, which they eat later.

Rats themselves - if you see one rat, there's a good chance there are a bunch more hiding in nests or burrows that you can't see. However, they may sometimes also build nests in burrows. Grease marks (from the oil and dirt of rats) often appear along walls next to runways. Strip and destroy all unwanted fruit when the harvest period is over. Interior and exterior sanitation to minimize available food and water that supports a rat population. High-frequency sound-producing devices are advertised for frightening rats, but almost no research exists on their effects specifically on roof rats. While you are preventing future rat population growth through inspection, sanitation, and exclusion, you will also want to begin working towards elimination of the population that is already present through trapping and baiting. Roof rats are likely to found in coastal, near-coastal areas and port cities. Overhead trap sets are particularly useful for roof rats. They use their keen sense of smell to locate and select food items, identify territories and travel routes, and recognize other rats, especially those of the opposite sex. The commercially available, expanded plastic treadle traps, such as the Victor Professional Rat Trap, are particularly effective if properly located in well-traveled paths.

Removing clutter and any debris that creates hiding places rats can use as harborage sites. The whiskers and guard hairs enable the animals to travel adjacent to walls in the dark and in burrows. They may eat vegetation, but prefer to meat or meat-related wastes. Norway rats and the roof rats are very different in their habits, habitats and behavior, so the first requirement of a rat treatment program is to correctly identify the rat and develop a treatment plan that works for that species. Some traps should be placed on the floor, but more should be placed above floor level (for example, on top of stacked commodities). When droppings are seen, it is a good practice to remove those droppings and later inspect to see whether new droppings were deposited. Presently, only one such modified trap is commercially available. Since roof rats rarely dig burrows, burrow fumigants are of limited use; however, if they have constructed burrows, then fumigants that are effective on Norway rats, such as aluminum phosphide and gas cartridges, will be effective on roof rats. All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice. Please also read the section on Sanitation, as it is an important consideration in rodent control. Unfortunately, the rat’s great adaptability to varying environmental conditions can sometimes make this information elusive.
