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.

Roof rats are prodigious breeders. Historically, infected fleas have transmitted serious plagues from rats to humans. It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing. 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. The product label is the law and dictates the product’s location of use and use patterns. Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits. Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences. The underside of the roof rat’s body is grayish to white.

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. Some type of clean food can be used to entice the rats to the boxes, or the tracking powders can be used in conjunction with an anticoagulant bait, with both placed in the same station. Pesticides must be registered for rat control by federal and/or state authorities and used in accordance with label directions. Where legal and not hazardous, shooting of roof rats is effective at dusk as they travel along utility lines. By this time they have learned what is good to eat by experimenting with potential food items and by imitating their mother. In food-storage facilities, the most prominent sign may be smudge marks, the result of oil and dirt rubbing off of their fur as they travel along their aerial routes. All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice. When necessary, roof rats will travel considerable distances (100 to 300 feet [30 to 90 m]) for food. Attach rat guards to overhead utility wires and maintain them regularly. Fur is smooth. Where anticoagulant resistance is known or suspected, the use of first-generation anticoagulants should be avoided in favor of the second-generation anticoagulants or one of the non anticoagulant rodenticides like bromethalin or cholecalciferol.

Between 9 and 14 days, their eyes open, and they begin to explore for food and move about near their nest. Within a year, one female may be responsible for up to 40 new rodents. Newer rodenticides are much more efficacious and have resulted in the phasing out of these older materials over the last 20 years. Rats have acute hearing and can readily detect noises. To prevent a colony from nesting in your home, make sure that all the windows and vents are screened. Norway rats are also polygamous and form colonies of many males and females. Tunnel boxes or bait boxes specially designed to expose a layer of toxic powder will reduce potential contamination problems and may actually increase effectiveness. Adults range in weight from about 5-10 ounces. Typically, 3 or more litters are produced annually. Roof rats are omnivores and will feed on many types of vegetation such as fruits, grains, seeds and grocery produce. Out-of-doors, roof rats may be present in low to moderate numbers with little sign in the way of tracks or droppings or runs and burrows.
