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.

  • The Invasion Of Roof Rats

Roof rats are more aerial than Norway rats in their habitat selection and often live in trees or on vine-covered fences. Roof rats have a strong tendency to avoid new objects in their environment and this neophobia can influence control efforts, for it may take several days before they will approach a bait station or trap. Most information on this subject comes from populations confined in cages or outdoor pens. Shooting is rarely effective by itself and should be done in conjunction with trapping or baiting programs. Norway rats and the roof rats are very different in their habits, habitats and behavior, so the first requirement of a rat treatment program is to correctly identify the rat and develop a treatment plan that works for that species. They have also been found living in sewer systems, but this is not common. Pocket gopher box-type traps (such as the DK-2 Gopher Getter) can be modified to catch rats by reversing the action of the trigger. In urban settings, cats and owls prey on roof rats but have little if any effect on well-established populations.

It is unlikely, however, they will be any more effective for roof rats than for Norway rats. The damage control methods used for roof rats are essentially the same as for Norway rats. In residences where rats may be living in the attic and feeding outdoors, the damage may be restricted to tearing up insulation for nesting or gnawing electrical wiring. Walk only on the wooden beams in the attic, never the sheet rock, or you could fall through the ceiling! Be careful, an attic is a hazardous place, where it can be easy to fall, or poke a roofing nail in your head. Roof rats are highly adaptable. No chemical repellents are specifically registered for rat control. If you have rats in your home, it's very important to do the job right the first time! I have seen dozens and dozens of cases of nightmare scenarios over many years, in which homeowners have paid pest control companies for a monthly contract that never ends. In situations where rats are not controlled with conventional products, fumigation of transport vehicles or rat ground burrows may sometimes be needed. Roof rats are likely to found in coastal, near-coastal areas and port cities. In tropical or semi tropical regions, the season may be nearly year-round. Attach rat guards to overhead utility wires and maintain them regularly.

They also consume seeds, nuts, berries, and insects. To prevent a colony from nesting in your home, make sure that all the windows and vents are screened. Like the Norway rat, the roof rat is implicated in the transmission of a number of diseases to humans, including murine typhus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis (food poisoning), rat-bite fever, and plague. If roof rats are seen exposed, it often indicates their hiding spaces are all filled by other rats or that they have been disturbed, such as by construction. For example, only zinc phosphide can be applied on the ground to control rats in sugarcane or macadamia orchards, and the second-generation anticoagulants, cholecalciferol and bromethalin, can be used only in and around buildings, not around crops or away from buildings even in non crop situations. Indoors, runways appear as clean paths through dust or dirt. High-frequency sound-producing devices are advertised for frightening rats, but almost no research exists on their effects specifically on roof rats. The roof rat is more at home in warm climates, and apparently less adaptable, than the Norway rat, which is why it has not spread throughout the country. If you've sealed the house correctly, then you shouldn't trap any new rats after just the first three days. High-frequency sound-producing devices are advertised for frightening rats, but almost no research exists on their effects specifically on roof rats. They may eat the bark of smaller citrus branches and girdle them.
