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.

They are particularly useful for house mouse control in situations where other methods seem less appropriate. In the third week they begin to take solid food. Roof rats also have an excellent sense of balance. They have coarse, brown fur, with lighter fur on the undersides. Successful long-term rat control is not simple. This is why traps and bait stations may be avoided for a day or two. Roof rat droppings are 12 to 13 mm with pointed ends, whereas Norway rat droppings are 18 to 20 mm and capsule shaped.
