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.

Wire-mesh, live traps (Tomahawk®, Havahart®) are available for trapping rats. While they may not kill the stalk outright, secondary organisms generally invade and reduce the sugar quality. In general, glue boards are more effective for house mice than for either of the rat species. The fumigation of structures, truck trailers, or rail cars should only be done by a licensed pest control operator who is trained in fumigation techniques. Always be sure that fresh bait is available continuously until rats stop feeding. Roof Rats are commonly called black rats and are smaller than Norway rats. Trapping is an effective alternative to pesticides and recommended in some situations. Landscaped residential or industrial areas provide good habitat, as does riparian vegetation of riverbanks and streams.

  • Should You Use Cage Traps To Catch Rats?

  • Do rats chew on wires? Why?

Roof Rats are predominate in coastal areas. Sightings & Sounds - Since rodents are nocturnal and live secretively under normal circumstances, you can be sure that regular daytime rodent sightings indicate a heavy infestation. Once established, they readily breed and thrive within buildings, just as Norway rats do. Damage - a rat's teeth are constantly growing and that means they have to chew on hard things like wood to trim them back. 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. Rat droppings are small, dark, cylindrically shaped, and are about one-half inch to three-fourths inch long with blunt ends. 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. The great adaptability of rats to human-created environments and the high fertility rate of rats make for quick recuperation of their populations. Setting a trap to collect a few specimens may be the only sure way to identify the rat or rats involved. Exclusion is an important rodent control technique. They move faster than Norway rats and are very agile climbers, which enables them to quickly escape predators.

A mouse's tracks will be much shorter. These rats are nocturnal and are excellent climbers. 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. Since roof rats rarely dig burrows, burrow fumigants are of limited use; however, if they have constructed burrows, then fumigants that are effective on Norway rats, such as aluminum phosphide and gas cartridges, will be effective on roof rats. However, they may sometimes also build nests in burrows. A few baits are strong enough to cause death with a single feeding. These kill traps are often baited with whole nuts and are most useful in trapping rats in trees. Rodents sniff out the bait and return to feed upon it continuously until the poison kills them. They are constantly exploring surroundings and notice changes and are suspicious by nature. Rats may carry viruses such as Hantavirus and salmonella, and although they can also be a carrier of bubonic plague, that disease is not indigenous in the USA. The elimination of food and water through good warehouse sanitation can do much to reduce rodent infestation.
