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. Generally, a few more feedings are necessary to produce death with the first-generation anticoagulants (warfarin, pindone, diphacinone, and chlorophacinone) but this is less significant with the second-generation anticoagulants (bromadiolone and brodifacoum). Unfortunately, the rat’s great adaptability to varying environmental conditions can sometimes make this information elusive. A few baits are strong enough to cause death with a single feeding.

Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures. They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source. Please also read the section on Sanitation, as it is an important consideration in rodent control. The latter two were ineffective for roof rats. Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions. Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed. Elsewhere, reports indicate that roof rats are slowly disappearing from localized areas for no apparent reason. 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. Proper ladder safety is a must, as is roof safety. If you've sealed the house correctly, then you shouldn't trap any new rats after just the first three days. Their presence is typically detected by the occurrence of their droppings, holes chewed into bags and containers, and chewed nesting materials.
