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.

Roof rats are likely to found in coastal, near-coastal areas and port cities. The advantages of trapping when compared to baiting include: 1) Trapping does not require the use of harmful poisons; 2) Trapping allows the user to know whether the rat was killed, whereas with baiting the rat will wander off and die somewhere else; 3) Trapping eliminates odor problems by allowing you to dispose of the rat carcass. Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species. Read more about where rats live.

Western Exterminator is the expert in rat removal and rat control services and we have the latest methods for finding where rats are getting in and preventing them from returning. Our pest management professionals (PMPs) practice all techniques involved in Integrated Pest Management for rodents. Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits. The older rodenticides, formerly referred to as acute toxicants, such as arsenic, phosphorus, red squill, and ANTU, are either no longer registered or of little importance in rat control. Damage - a rat's teeth are constantly growing and that means they have to chew on hard things like wood to trim them back. Since roof rats rarely dig burrows, burrow fumigants are of limited use; however, if they have constructed burrows, then fumigants that are effective on Norway rats, such as aluminum phosphide and gas cartridges, will be effective on roof rats. The nature of damage to outdoor vegetation can often provide clues as to whether it is caused by the roof or Norway rat. Trap at left is modified by fastening a piece of cardboard to expand its trigger size (traps with expanded treadles can also be purchased from several manufacturers). Rats leave the attic during the night, to go out and forage for water and food. Rat control using chemical products involves baits designed to kill rats. Other rat signs may also assist, but be aware that both species may be present.

All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice. The young are able to breed before they are four months old. Both roof rats and Norway rats have a well-developed sense of smell and are wary of new things that are introduced into their home range. One of the more common techniques for bait use is to place the bait formulation in a tamper proof rodent bait station that protects the bait from accidental exposure to non-target animals or people. Trichinosis may be contracted through eating undercooked meat of animals that have fed on rats. Sounds in the attic are often the first indication of the presence of roof rats in a residence. 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. The Norway rat produces six to eight litters of six to nine young per year. 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. Rats contaminating food or food preparation surfaces can transmit food poisoning. Lives up to one year.
