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.

Droppings - Roof Rat droppings are 1/4 to 1/2 inch in length, capsule shaped, with blunt ends. Roof rats can be carriers of diseases. They also often chew on inedible materials such as books, soap, and cans. Roof rats can also enter openings in walls, eaves and roof from the branches of trees. Also, carry out a visual examination of the attic to find the holes they were using to get in and out of the attic. Unless the suitability of the rat’s habitat is destroyed by modifying the landscaping, improving sanitation, and rat-proofing, control methods must be unrelenting if they are to be effective. Norway rats are usually active at dusk or during the night and are inactive during daylight hours.

Look for fresh droppings. Tracking powders are used much less often for roof rats than for Norway rats because roof rats frequent overhead areas within buildings. Without this knowledge, both time and money are wasted, and the chances of failure are increased. 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. That is very costly! Do the job ONCE by a wildlife operator, NOT A PEST CONTROL COMPANY, get it done, and you'll be rat-free forever. Roof rats are not protected by law and can be controlled any time with mechanical or chemical methods. Their presence is typically detected by the occurrence of their droppings, holes chewed into bags and containers, and chewed nesting materials. Adults range in weight from about 5-10 ounces. They approach new food or object with caution. Unfortunately, the rat’s great adaptability to varying environmental conditions can sometimes make this information elusive.
