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.

POISON IS A HORRIBLE IDEA FOR MANY MANY REASONS - poison won't solve the problem, and it'll just create more problems. Also, be careful when setting snap traps. In sugarcane, they move into the field as the cane matures and feed on the cane stalks. In landscaped yards they often live in overgrown shrubbery or vines, feeding on ornamentals, vegetables, fruits, and nuts. Seal any openings larger than ¼ inch with caulk, wood, mesh, or other appropriate materials. There is less tendency to see droppings, urine, or tracks on the floor in buildings because rats may live overhead between floors, above false ceilings, or in utility spaces, and venture down to feed or obtain food. Look for fresh droppings. And most of all, you want someone who will do this complex work correctly.

Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control. Roof rats have hairless, scaly tails that are longer than their heads and bodies. In general, glue boards are more effective for house mice than for either of the rat species. Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways. Many rats may cache or hoard considerable amounts of solid food, which they eat later. 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. Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control. Other indicators can include grease marks along surfaces as well as nests. If living under a refrigerator or freezer, they may disable the unit by gnawing the electrical wires. A mouse's tracks will be much shorter. They may be frightened by sound-producing devices for awhile but they become accustomed to constant and frequently repeated sounds quickly.

  • What are Rats?

Norway rats can climb, but not as well as roof rats, and are strong swimmers. Wire-mesh, live traps (Tomahawk®, Havahart®) are available for trapping rats. They use their tails for balance while traveling along overhead utility lines. Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control. In some situations in which the rats have been eliminated, cats that are good hunters may prevent reinfestation. They use their tails for balance while traveling along overhead utility lines. Attach rat guards to overhead utility wires and maintain them regularly. In controlling roof rats with rodenticides, a sharp distinction must be made between control in and around buildings and control away from buildings such as in landfills and dumps, along drainage ditches and streams, in sewer water evaporation ponds, and in parks. When practical, remove extraneous vegetation adjacent to the crop that may provide shelter for rats. Breeding seasons vary in different areas. No rat bait ingredient is universally highly acceptable, and regional differences are the rule rather than the exception.
