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.

At about 3 months of age they are completely independent of the mother and are reproductively mature. Some traps should be placed on the floor, but more should be placed above floor level (for example, on top of stacked commodities). Such caches may be found in a dismantled wood pile, attic, or behind boxes in a garage. 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. Roof rats can be carriers of diseases. Roof rats are not protected by law and can be controlled any time with mechanical or chemical methods. 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). 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.

Check the traps periodically, remove any dead trapped rats, and reset the traps. A few baits are strong enough to cause death with a single feeding. In homes, the attic and garage rafters close to the infestation are the best trapping sites. These rats are nocturnal and are excellent climbers. You can't ignore wildlife problems, because of the damage and health risks that rats cause. Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics. 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. Where legal and not hazardous, shooting of roof rats is effective at dusk as they travel along utility lines. Lights (flashing or continuously on) may repel rats at first, but rats will quickly acclimate to them. If you do it wrong the first time, you'll just end up paying more later. Also, carry out a visual examination of the attic to find the holes they were using to get in and out of the attic.

If living under a refrigerator or freezer, they may disable the unit by gnawing the electrical wires. However, rats are a nuisance animal wherever you choose to release them, and they also have a particularly low rate of survival once they have been relocated, so in most cases using humane lethal traps will be the best way to deal with the infestation. And most of all, you want someone who will do this complex work correctly. They also feed on a variety of vegetative parts of ornamental and native plant materials. At least in some parts of the United States and elsewhere in the world, the methods used to control rats have reduced Norway rat populations but have permitted roof rats to become more prominent, apparently because they are more difficult to control. Many rats may cache or hoard considerable amounts of solid food, which they eat later. Successful long-term rat control is not simple. Traps may be nailed to beams or studs and secured to pipes with wires. They are constantly exploring surroundings and notice changes and are suspicious by nature. In rare instances, isolated populations are found in areas not within their normal distribution range in the United States. Norway rats are usually active at dusk or during the night and are inactive during daylight hours.
