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.

At least in some parts of the United States and elsewhere in the world, the methods used to control rats have reduced Norway rat populations but have permitted roof rats to become more prominent, apparently because they are more difficult to control. They need not be baited. Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions. A vegetation-free margin around the grove will slow rat invasions because rats are more susceptible to predation when crossing unfamiliar open areas. They are particularly useful for house mouse control in situations where other methods seem less appropriate. When everyone is asleep and the house is quiet, the rats can be heard scurrying about. Landscaped residential or industrial areas provide good habitat, as does riparian vegetation of riverbanks and streams. 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.

Rats contaminating food or food preparation surfaces can transmit food poisoning. If living under a refrigerator or freezer, they may disable the unit by gnawing the electrical wires. This cost will vary a great deal, depending on how many repairs are needed, what part of the country you live in, how many rats are in the attic, how many service trips are necessary, if you need cleanup, etc. Citrus trees, having very low hanging skirts, are more prone to damage because they provide rats with protection. Some of the first-generation anticoagulants (pindone and warfarin) are available as soluble rodenticides from which water baits can be prepared. In some agricultural areas, roof rats cause significant losses of tree crops such as citrus and avocados and, to a lesser extent, walnuts, almonds, and other nuts. The young are born in a nest about 21 to 23 days after conception. Roof rats can also enter openings in walls, eaves and roof from the branches of trees. A few instances of first-generation anticoagulant resistance have been reported in roof rats; although not common, it may be underestimated because so few resistance studies have been conducted on this species. This is why traps and bait stations may be avoided for a day or two. Within a year, one female may be responsible for up to 40 new rodents.

Some of the more important non-chemical methods are: Rats leave the attic during the night, to go out and forage for water and food. Care must be exercised to ensure that baits are properly placed and the use instructions on the product’s label are strictly followed. All anticoagulants provide excellent roof rat control when prepared in acceptable baits. Roof rats are omnivores and will feed on many types of vegetation such as fruits, grains, seeds and grocery produce. Trapping The adequate inspection of a large facility for the presence and location of roof rats often requires a nighttime search when the facility is normally shut down. These devices must be viewed with considerable skepticism, because research has not proven them effective. Bubonic plague was a scourge in Europe several times throughout history. Without this knowledge, both time and money are wasted, and the chances of failure are increased. Some of their habitats include garbage dumps, sewers and fields.
