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.

In food-processing and food-storage facilities, roof rats do about the same type of damage as Norway rats, and damage is visually hard to differentiate. Caution should be taken to avoid trapping nontarget species such as tree squirrels. Snails are a favorite food, but don’t expect roof rats to eliminate a garden snail problem. Gnawing holes - Gnawing holes from Roof rats are about 2 inches or more in diameter and will have rough edges. 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.

Caution should be taken to avoid trapping nontarget species such as tree squirrels. In food-processing and storage facilities, they will feed on nearly all food items, though their food preferences may differ from those of Norway rats. Your inspection process must include ladder work and climbing on a roof. Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off of the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist. Pocket gopher box-type traps (such as the DK-2 Gopher Getter) can be modified to catch rats by reversing the action of the trigger. The adequate inspection of a large facility for the presence and location of roof rats often requires a nighttime search when the facility is normally shut down. There are several other types of lethal traps, including the crocodile trap, which has teeth that close on the rat, and even gas chamber traps. Shooting is rarely effective by itself and should be done in conjunction with trapping or baiting programs. These rats are nocturnal and are excellent climbers. In urban settings, cats and owls prey on roof rats but have little if any effect on well-established populations. Some type of clean food can be used to entice the rats to the boxes, or the tracking powders can be used in conjunction with an anticoagulant bait, with both placed in the same station.
