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.

Droppings are another good indicator of roof rat activity. Rats usually begin searching for food shortly after sunset. A mouse's tracks will be much shorter.

These kill traps are often baited with whole nuts and are most useful in trapping rats in trees.
