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.

The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors. Rats leave the attic during the night, to go out and forage for water and food. Trap at left is modified by fastening a piece of cardboard to expand its trigger size (traps with expanded treadles can also be purchased from several manufacturers). They usually don't leave the attic for very long. Body is smaller and sleeker than the Norway rat’s. With lemons they may eat only the rind and leave the hanging fruit intact. They may also enter through ill-fitted doors, windows, or screens, and air vents that are not in sound or working order. In most instances, rats are very wary. Listen for rat evidence, like their scurrying and running noises in the attic, and scratching in the walls. Most pest control companies set rat traps, perhaps squirt some flammable expansion foam at very obvious holes, and then put you on a monthly service to remove the rats that are still getting in to your home. Overhead trap sets are particularly useful for roof rats.
