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 polygamous and group themselves into colonies of multiple males and females. They prefer gnawing on wood but may also damage property, electrical wiring, and food packaging. One of the more common techniques for bait use is to place the bait formulation in a tamper proof rodent bait station that protects the bait from accidental exposure to non-target animals or people. Neophobia is more pronounced in roof rats than in Norway rats. Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species. They are very strong, and can injure your fingers. Rodents sniff out the bait and return to feed upon it continuously until the poison kills them. There are several other types of lethal traps, including the crocodile trap, which has teeth that close on the rat, and even gas chamber traps.

By this time they have learned what is good to eat by experimenting with potential food items and by imitating their mother. Rats contaminating food or food preparation surfaces can transmit food poisoning. Okay, the first and most important thing you have to do is find out how rats are getting into the building. They do very well on feed provided for domestic animals such as swine, dairy cows, and chickens, as well as on dog and cat food. Since roof rats rarely dig burrows, burrow fumigants are of limited use; however, if they have constructed burrows, then fumigants that are effective on Norway rats, such as aluminum phosphide and gas cartridges, will be effective on roof rats. Rats usually begin searching for food shortly after sunset. Tunnel boxes or bait boxes specially designed to expose a layer of toxic powder will reduce potential contamination problems and may actually increase effectiveness. The only way to solve a rat or mouse problem is to find every last point of entry into the house, and seal it shut. Pocket gopher box-type traps (such as the DK-2 Gopher Getter) can be modified to catch rats by reversing the action of the trigger. This is a great supplementary treatment to trapping when you are dealing with larger rodent populations, or for outdoor populations. High-frequency sound-producing devices are advertised for frightening rats, but almost no research exists on their effects specifically on roof rats.

Their tails are longer than the rest of their body and are uniformly dark colored. Your inspection process must include ladder work and climbing on a roof. The muzzle of the roof rat is pointed and the overall appearance of the roof rat is much more streamlined and sleek looking than a Norway rat. Black or brown, can be over 40 cm long, with a long tail, large ears and eyes, and a pointed nose. Rat treatment involves both non-chemical and chemical methods. 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. Also, roof rats are likely to consume insects. Products sold as general animal repellents, based on taste and/or odor, are sometimes advertised to repel animals, including rats, from garbage bags. Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions. Because roof rats are fast and agile, they are not easy prey for mammalian or avian predators. Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics.
