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.
Rat Control in Forest –
I highly recommend snap traps, not live cage traps, certainly not glue boards, and most definitely not poison! Never poison rats, it doesn't solve the problem and it just creates more problems.
Rats leave the attic during the night, to go out and forage for water and food.
Therefore, the body oils on a rat’s fur gets deposited on corners and edges of walls and around holes and gaps they use to enter into a wall void.
Where label instructions permit, small blocks can be placed or fastened on rafters, ledges, or even attached to tree limbs, where they are readily accessible to the arboreal rats.
Rodent-proofing against roof rats usually requires more time to find entry points than for Norway rats because of their greater climbing ability.
They have coarse, brown fur, with lighter fur on the undersides.
Fur is smooth.
They may eat vegetation, but prefer to meat or meat-related wastes.
Once you are confident that you have caught all of the rats that are in the attic, then it will be time to check for any insulation or wires in the attic that need to be replaced, and for any nesting material to remove, and feces to clean up.
You will never solve a rat problem until you find all of these openings, and seal them shut with steel, which rats are unable to chew through.
Mating generally peaks in the warmer months of the year, but may occur year round in some areas.
Exclusion and sealing of sites greater than ½ inch (about the size of a dime) using screens, flashing, door sweeps and other materials to keep rats from entering a structure.
Fur is smooth.
Their design makes them more rat-specific when used out-of-doors than ordinary snap traps that sometimes take birds.
These techniques include improving sanitation for the affected location, eliminating hiding places, exclusion and may also include lethal methods such as traps and rodenticides.
The key is to control rat populations, not individual rats.

Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences.
With lemons they may eat only the rind and leave the hanging fruit intact.

Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed.
Glue boards will catch roof rats, but, like traps, they must be located on beams, rafters, and along other travel routes, making them more difficult to place effectively for roof rats than for Norway rats or house mice.
Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces.
Roof rat droppings are 12 to 13 mm with pointed ends, whereas Norway rat droppings are 18 to 20 mm and capsule shaped.
The fumigation of structures, truck trailers, or rail cars should only be done by a licensed pest control operator who is trained in fumigation techniques.
Our pest management professionals (PMPs) practice all techniques involved in Integrated Pest Management for rodents.
The first step in controlling a roof rat infestation is to properly identify the rodents.
It actually makes it worse, because the rats are multiplying, dying, defecating, destroying insulation, chewing wires and chewing air ducts, while you wait for your next service.
A rat does not want to be exposed to danger outside for very long! If you think you can just seal shut the entry holes into the house during the daylight when they are outside, that is incorrect.
From causing plague epidemics (the "Black Death" of Europe) to rat-bite fever, whether feeding on stored grain or gnawing electric wires, rats are enemies of humankind.
