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.

Inspection is an important first step in getting rid of rats. Rats tend to segregate themselves socially in both space and time. You can't ignore wildlife problems, because of the damage and health risks that rats cause. As their name suggests, roof rats may be found in elevated areas such as trees, rafters, attics and roofs. Only construction grade materials are used. The most commonly found rat pest in United States is the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus). Rats, like mice, are omnivorous rodents. Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits.

  • Do rats dig holes? Do they burrow under houses? How deep?

Rats can squeeze into a hole the size of a quarter. Their use for roof rats is limited to control within structures because roof rats rarely produce burrows. In dense populations, roof rats will establish a social hierarchy, wherein dominant males mate more than subordinate males. Roof rats can be carriers of diseases. In landscaped yards they often live in overgrown shrubbery or vines, feeding on ornamentals, vegetables, fruits, and nuts. The key is to control rat populations, not individual rats. They are usually a shiny black, but may vary according to diet. If you're not experienced in setting them, you may have some problems, so be careful. For the characteristics of the various anticoagulant rodenticides see Norway Rats.

Floor drains and sewer pipes should have tight-fitting grates with openings less than 1/4 inch in diameter. In general, glue boards are more effective for house mice than for either of the rat species. The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide. When rodent-proofing against roof rats, pay close attention to the roof and roof line areas to assure all accesses are closed. Landscaped residential or industrial areas provide good habitat, as does riparian vegetation of riverbanks and streams. Rats (especially Roof rats) are wary of new objects, new foods or changed in environment. All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice. Roof rats are more aerial than Norway rats in their habitat selection and often live in trees or on vine-covered fences. In situations where rats are not controlled with conventional products, fumigation of transport vehicles or rat ground burrows may sometimes be needed. This is why traps and bait stations may be avoided for a day or two.
