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.

This type of rat control service does not ever solve the problem. Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species. Roof rats are adept climbers and not surprisingly are apt to build their nests in locations above ground. These rodents have been known to consume tree bark, meat and grain. However, the complexity in mode of action of newer materials makes these classifications outdated. Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available. Another important treatment component is customer education so the customer understands the concepts of the proposed control program. Unless the suitability of the rat’s habitat is destroyed by modifying the landscaping, improving sanitation, and rat-proofing, control methods must be unrelenting if they are to be effective.

  • Types of Rats

There is less tendency to see droppings, urine, or tracks on the floor in buildings because rats may live overhead between floors, above false ceilings, or in utility spaces, and venture down to feed or obtain food. For the characteristics of the various anticoagulant rodenticides see Norway Rats. Rats (especially Roof rats) are wary of new objects, new foods or changed in environment. Other indicators can include grease marks along surfaces as well as nests. Within a population, some rats will be easy to control, some difficult. Roof rat droppings are 12 to 13 mm with pointed ends, whereas Norway rat droppings are 18 to 20 mm and capsule shaped. They may live in the landscaping of one residence and feed at another. They are usually a shiny black, but may vary according to diet. Roof rats are susceptible to all of the various anticoagulant rodenticides, but less so than Norway rats. These rats are nocturnal and are excellent climbers. POISON IS A HORRIBLE IDEA FOR MANY MANY REASONS - poison won't solve the problem, and it'll just create more problems.

Trichinosis may be contracted through eating undercooked meat of animals that have fed on rats. In some agricultural areas, roof rats cause significant losses of tree crops such as citrus and avocados and, to a lesser extent, walnuts, almonds, and other nuts. They may live in the landscaping of one residence and feed at another. For rats, all openings greater than 1/2" should be sealed. Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available. The common wooden snap traps that are effective for Norway rats are effective for roof rats. However, a few differences must be taken into account. No chemical repellents are specifically registered for rat control. Setting a trap to collect a few specimens may be the only sure way to identify the rat or rats involved. Liquid baits may be an effective alternative in situations where normal baits are not readily accepted, especially where water is scarce or where rats must travel some distance to reach water. Female adults will produce about seven litters per year and will mate again about 18 hours after giving birth to her litter of about eight pups.
