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.

A preferred categorization would be “anticoagulants” and “non-anticoagulants” or “other rodenticides. Rats contaminating food or food preparation surfaces can transmit food poisoning. Roof rats are prodigious breeders. Most commercial baits are registered for both species of rats and for house mice, but often they are less acceptable to roof rats than to the other species. Roof rats are not accomplished swimmers and are not usually found in sewers. Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures. Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off of the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist. Roof rats entering homes are generally found in raised or secure enclosures such as walls, cabinets, attics, and false ceilings.

The damage control methods used for roof rats are essentially the same as for Norway rats. Pesticides must be registered for rat control by federal and/or state authorities and used in accordance with label directions. Lights (flashing or continuously on) may repel rats at first, but rats will quickly acclimate to them. In homes, the attic and garage rafters close to the infestation are the best trapping sites. Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient. It is difficult to find suitable places to lay the tracking powder that will not create a potential problem of contaminating food or materials below the placement sites. In homes, the attic and garage rafters close to the infestation are the best trapping sites. The advantages of trapping when compared to baiting include: 1) Trapping does not require the use of harmful poisons; 2) Trapping allows the user to know whether the rat was killed, whereas with baiting the rat will wander off and die somewhere else; 3) Trapping eliminates odor problems by allowing you to dispose of the rat carcass. All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice. Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics. Tunnel boxes or bait boxes specially designed to expose a layer of toxic powder will reduce potential contamination problems and may actually increase effectiveness.

Once you are confident that you have caught all of the rats that are in the attic, then it will be time to check for any insulation or wires in the attic that need to be replaced, and for any nesting material to remove, and feces to clean up. Products sold as general animal repellents, based on taste and/or odor, are sometimes advertised to repel animals, including rats, from garbage bags. Glue boards will catch roof rats, but, like traps, they must be located on beams, rafters, and along other travel routes, making them more difficult to place effectively for roof rats than for Norway rats or house mice. Attach rat guards to overhead utility wires and maintain them regularly. The roof rat is more at home in warm climates, and apparently less adaptable, than the Norway rat, which is why it has not spread throughout the country. Pelleted or loose cereal anticoagulant baits are used extensively in tamper-resistant bait boxes or stations for a permanent baiting program for Norway rats and house mice. The ears and tail are nearly hairless and they are typically 12 to 18 inches long including the tail and weigh 10 to 16 ounces. They may live in the landscaping of one residence and feed at another. Roof rats usually require water daily, though their local diet may provide an adequate amount if it is high in water content. 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.
