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. Roof rats can be carriers of diseases. Roof rats are polygamous and group themselves into colonies of multiple males and females. There is often a correlation between rat problems and the keeping of dogs, especially where dogs are fed outdoors. Newer rodenticides are much more efficacious and have resulted in the phasing out of these older materials over the last 20 years. ALWAYS USE RESPIRATORY PROTECTION WHEN REMOVING RODENT DROPPINGS. They are particularly useful for house mouse control in situations where other methods seem less appropriate. 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.

Our professional wildlife professionals may not show you how to kill the rats but instead use rat repellents, rat fumigants and rat trapping systems to ensure the effectiveness of the rat control method, without physically harming the rats. 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. I'm not going to go into detail about harnesses and chicken ladders and such, but be careful! Then, when in the attic, wear a respirator - you don't want to breathe in fiberglass insulation, dust or mold, or the variety of diseases associated with rats. Roof rats frequently enter buildings from the roof or from accesses near overhead utility lines, which they use to travel from area to area. Dense shrubbery, vine-covered trees and fences, and vine ground cover make ideal harborage for roof rats. Rats leave the attic during the night, to go out and forage for water and food. Roof rats are not protected by law and can be controlled any time with mechanical or chemical methods. In some situations in which the rats have been eliminated, cats that are good hunters may prevent reinfestation. However, when a Norway rat population grows so large that competition from other rats for food, water and harborage increases, some members of the rat community may seek to find new areas to colonize during the daytime. This is a great supplementary treatment to trapping when you are dealing with larger rodent populations, or for outdoor populations. You don't want to over-pay of course.

Also, roof rats are likely to consume insects. Without this knowledge, both time and money are wasted, and the chances of failure are increased. This type of rat control service does not ever solve the problem. Control of roof rat damage in agriculture represents yet another scenario. Adult females are able to reproduce at 3-5 months old, can produce up to five litters each year with about 5-8 young in each litter. Landscaped residential or industrial areas provide good habitat, as does riparian vegetation of riverbanks and streams. Roof rats range along the lower half of the East Coast and throughout the Gulf States upward into Arkansas. In a human environment, the rodents will consume almost any food to which they have access. 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. Grease marks (from the oil and dirt of rats) often appear along walls next to runways. The young are able to breed before they are four months old.
