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.

Rats are nocturnal and are not commonly seen. Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control. In dense populations, roof rats will establish a social hierarchy, wherein dominant males mate more than subordinate males. Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces. In food-processing and storage facilities, they will feed on nearly all food items, though their food preferences may differ from those of Norway rats. However, the complexity in mode of action of newer materials makes these classifications outdated. Generally, Roof rats stay within 100 miles inland. With lemons they may eat only the rind and leave the hanging fruit intact.

Inspection is an important first step in getting rid of rats. The first step in controlling a roof rat infestation is to properly identify the rodents. Traps should be placed flush with walls in areas of highest travel (as determined by Inspection). When droppings are seen, it is a good practice to remove those droppings and later inspect to see whether new droppings were deposited. Without this knowledge, both time and money are wasted, and the chances of failure are increased. Our professional wildlife professionals may not show you how to kill the rats but instead use rat repellents, rat fumigants and rat trapping systems to ensure the effectiveness of the rat control method, without physically harming the rats. The key is to control rat populations, not individual rats. In food-storage facilities, the most prominent sign may be smudge marks, the result of oil and dirt rubbing off of their fur as they travel along their aerial routes. Visual sightings of live or dead rodents indicate rodent activity. In most of our urban areas, Norway rats may be seen scurrying around after dark looking for food in garbage cans and other places where human refuse is found. These techniques include improving sanitation for the affected location, eliminating hiding places, exclusion and may also include lethal methods such as traps and rodenticides.

The latter two were ineffective for roof rats. We service 99% of the USA. The key is to control rat populations, not individual rats. Make sure that all doors, windows and screens fit tightly in their frames and repair those that do not. For more detailed information, see Rodent-proof Construction and Exclusion Methods. 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. In general, glue boards are more effective for house mice than for either of the rat species. For best results, try several baits to find out which one rats consume most. Rats rely more on their keen senses of smell, taste, touch, and hearing than on vision. This is why traps and bait stations may be avoided for a day or two. Distinctions must be made as to which rodenticide (registered product) to use, the method of application or placement, and the amount of bait to apply.
