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.

Out-of-doors, roof rats may be present in low to moderate numbers with little sign in the way of tracks or droppings or runs and burrows. Rats, like mice, are omnivorous rodents. For the characteristics of the various anticoagulant rodenticides see Norway Rats. Mating generally peaks in the warmer months of the year, but may occur year round in some areas. They are particularly useful for house mouse control in situations where other methods seem less appropriate. Rodents sniff out the bait and return to feed upon it continuously until the poison kills them. At present there are three rodenticides—zinc phosphide, cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), and bromethalin—registered and available for roof rat control. A new second-generation anticoagulant, difethialone, is presently being developed and EPA registration is anticipated in the near future.

Some of the more important diseases associated with rats include Rat-Bite Fever and Leptospirosis. Roof rats leave a hind foot track of about 3/4-1 inch. They prefer gnawing on wood but may also damage property, electrical wiring, and food packaging. If you need to hire professional help, you can call us. Roof rats frequently enter buildings from the roof or from accesses near overhead utility lines, which they use to travel from area to area. Rat control using chemical products involves baits designed to kill rats. Sounds in the attic are often the first indication of the presence of roof rats in a residence. Their presence is typically detected by the occurrence of their droppings, holes chewed into bags and containers, and chewed nesting materials. Then they return to the attic. Within a year, one female may be responsible for up to 40 new rodents. Their keen sense of hearing also aids in their ability to detect and escape danger.

The Norway rat is generally considered the most important rat in the United States. Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available. 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. It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing. Most pest control companies set rat traps, perhaps squirt some flammable expansion foam at very obvious holes, and then put you on a monthly service to remove the rats that are still getting in to your home. Their design makes them more rat-specific when used out-of-doors than ordinary snap traps that sometimes take birds. It is unlikely, however, they will be any more effective for roof rats than for Norway rats. Tracking powders play an important role in structural rodent control. Timing a sealup for rats is impossible, because they leave for short periods, and they don't all leave at the same time of night. Labels will specify where and under what conditions the bait can be used. Roof rat droppings are 12 to 13 mm with pointed ends, whereas Norway rat droppings are 18 to 20 mm and capsule shaped.
