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.

Setting a trap to collect a few specimens may be the only sure way to identify the rat or rats involved. Because roof rats are fast and agile, they are not easy prey for mammalian or avian predators. Timing a sealup for rats is impossible, because they leave for short periods, and they don't all leave at the same time of night. In general, glue boards are more effective for house mice than for either of the rat species. Newer rodenticides are much more efficacious and have resulted in the phasing out of these older materials over the last 20 years. When rodent-proofing against roof rats, pay close attention to the roof and roof line areas to assure all accesses are closed. The common wooden snap traps that are effective for Norway rats are effective for roof rats. Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences.

Roof rats are not protected by law and can be controlled any time with mechanical or chemical methods. Landscaped residential or industrial areas provide good habitat, as does riparian vegetation of riverbanks and streams. A rat does not want to be exposed to danger outside for very long! If you think you can just seal shut the entry holes into the house during the daylight when they are outside, that is incorrect. Specifications may vary depending on bait manufacturer even though the active ingredient may be the same. Rats usually begin searching for food shortly after sunset. Roof rats entering homes are generally found in raised or secure enclosures such as walls, cabinets, attics, and false ceilings. Rodent-infested pallets of goods can be tarped and fumigated on an individual or collective basis. Exclusion is an important rodent control technique.

Timing a sealup for rats is impossible, because they leave for short periods, and they don't all leave at the same time of night. Roof rats are adept climbers and not surprisingly are apt to build their nests in locations above ground. Some of their habitats include garbage dumps, sewers and fields. These rats are nocturnal and are excellent climbers. Traps should be placed flush with walls in areas of highest travel (as determined by Inspection). There are several other types of lethal traps, including the crocodile trap, which has teeth that close on the rat, and even gas chamber traps. Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species. 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. In some situations, pet food and poorly managed garbage may represent a major food resource. Rat control using chemical products involves baits designed to kill rats. Care must be exercised to ensure that baits are properly placed and the use instructions on the product’s label are strictly followed.
