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.

Wire-mesh, live traps (Tomahawk®, Havahart®) are available for trapping rats. When rodent-proofing against roof rats, pay close attention to the roof and roof line areas to assure all accesses are closed. In sugarcane, they move into the field as the cane matures and feed on the cane stalks. They use their tails for balance while traveling along overhead utility lines. Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits. The first and most crucial thing is to inspect the house and find all possible entry holes, and before starting any trapping, carry out repairs and seal the attic so the rats can't get in again. Labels will specify where and under what conditions the bait can be used. In rare instances, isolated populations are found in areas not within their normal distribution range in the United States.

The damage control methods used for roof rats are essentially the same as for Norway rats. Another important treatment component is customer education so the customer understands the concepts of the proposed control program. The Norway rat is generally considered the most important rat in the United States. Rats themselves - if you see one rat, there's a good chance there are a bunch more hiding in nests or burrows that you can't see. Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption. Seal any openings larger than ¼ inch with caulk, wood, mesh, or other appropriate materials. Trichinosis may be contracted through eating undercooked meat of animals that have fed on rats. Its worldwide geographic distribution suggests that it is much more suited to tropical and semitropical climates. In urban settings, cats and owls prey on roof rats but have little if any effect on well-established populations. Other vegetable, melon, berry, and fruit crops occasionally suffer relatively minor damage when adjacent to infested habitat such as riparian vegetation. Norway rats are usually active at dusk or during the night and are inactive during daylight hours.

However, a few differences must be taken into account. Hantavirus - a potentially lethal virus if humans come in contact with rat urine or feces. Typically, 3 or more litters are produced annually. A preferred categorization would be “anticoagulants” and “non-anticoagulants” or “other rodenticides. In some situations in which the rats have been eliminated, cats that are good hunters may prevent reinfestation. Rats rely more on their keen senses of smell, taste, touch, and hearing than on vision. Bait stations are sometimes difficult to place for roof rat control because of the rodents’ overhead traveling characteristics. Because roof rats are fast and agile, they are not easy prey for mammalian or avian predators. They may eat the bark of smaller citrus branches and girdle them. Its worldwide geographic distribution suggests that it is much more suited to tropical and semitropical climates. You don't want to over-pay of course.
