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.
Rat Control in Argentine –
Store pet food in sealed containers and do not leave it out at night.
Bait stations are sometimes difficult to place for roof rat control because of the rodents’ overhead traveling characteristics.
Control methods must reflect an understanding of the roof rat’s habitat requirements, reproductive capabilities, food habits, life history, behavior, senses, movements, and the dynamics of its population structure.
Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces.
In urban settings, cats and owls prey on roof rats but have little if any effect on well-established populations.
Only after you've sealed the openings shut, you should start trapping and removal.
Roof rats can be controlled with the same baits used for Norway rats.
In most of our urban areas, Norway rats may be seen scurrying around after dark looking for food in garbage cans and other places where human refuse is found.
However, the complexity in mode of action of newer materials makes these classifications outdated.
You can often find smudges as an indication of rats, but they can often stay on walls for a long time, so it might be from an old infestation.
Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource.
To prevent a colony from nesting in your home, make sure that all the windows and vents are screened.
Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics.
The common wooden snap traps that are effective for Norway rats are effective for roof rats.
It is recommended for use in homes because, unlike with poison baits, there is no risk of a rat dying in an inaccessible place and creating an odor problem.
Having completed the repairs to wires, and possibly vacuumed feces or replaced insulation (not usually necessary) fumigate the attic to kill any remaining parasites or spores from the rats.

Like the Norway rat, the roof rat is implicated in the transmission of a number of diseases to humans, including murine typhus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis (food poisoning), rat-bite fever, and plague.
For the characteristics of the various anticoagulant rodenticides see Norway Rats.
When droppings are seen, it is a good practice to remove those droppings and later inspect to see whether new droppings were deposited.
Signs Of An Infestation.
I highly recommend snap traps, not live cage traps, certainly not glue boards, and most definitely not poison! Never poison rats, it doesn't solve the problem and it just creates more problems.
Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient.
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).
One of the more common techniques for bait use is to place the bait formulation in a tamper proof rodent bait station that protects the bait from accidental exposure to non-target animals or people.
A new second-generation anticoagulant, difethialone, is presently being developed and EPA registration is anticipated in the near future.
Their presence is typically detected by the occurrence of their droppings, holes chewed into bags and containers, and chewed nesting materials.
Their use for roof rats is limited to control within structures because roof rats rarely produce burrows.
It is found in every state.
