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.

Roof rats can be controlled with the same baits used for Norway rats. Prune to raise the skirts and remove any nests constructed in the trees. The older rodenticides, formerly referred to as acute toxicants, such as arsenic, phosphorus, red squill, and ANTU, are either no longer registered or of little importance in rat control. I highly recommend snap traps, not live cage traps, certainly not glue boards, and most definitely not poison! Never poison rats, it doesn't solve the problem and it just creates more problems. Most commercial baits are registered for both species of rats and for house mice, but often they are less acceptable to roof rats than to the other species. The damage control methods used for roof rats are essentially the same as for Norway rats. The first step in controlling a roof rat infestation is to properly identify the rodents.

Black or brown, can be over 40 cm long, with a long tail, large ears and eyes, and a pointed nose. The nature of damage to outdoor vegetation can often provide clues as to whether it is caused by the roof or Norway rat. Rodent-proofing against roof rats usually requires more time to find entry points than for Norway rats because of their greater climbing ability. Rats are responsible for the spread of many diseases. When everyone is asleep and the house is quiet, the rats can be heard scurrying about.

The great adaptability of rats to human-created environments and the high fertility rate of rats make for quick recuperation of their populations. Use a powerful flashlight to spot rats and to determine travel routes for the best locations to set baits and traps. Adult roof rats usually live about one year. You don't want to over-pay of course.

Their use for roof rats is limited to control within structures because roof rats rarely produce burrows. Parks with natural and artificial ponds, or reservoirs may also be infested. Trichinosis may be contracted through eating undercooked meat of animals that have fed on rats. 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.
