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.

Norway rats are common around human residences and industrial and commercial areas. You will know the bait is working when the bait is no longer being consumed. Rat droppings are small, dark, cylindrically shaped, and are about one-half inch to three-fourths inch long with blunt ends. In homes, the attic and garage rafters close to the infestation are the best trapping sites. Sometimes they transmit disease indirectly, for example, when fleas first bite an infected rat, then a person. The most commonly found rat pest in United States is the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus). Rat Bite Fever - from the saliva of a rat, it comes from rats biting humans. The reproductive potential of one female Norway rat is about 50-60 young per year.
