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.

Since none of these are anticoagulants, all can be used to control anticoagulant resistant populations of roof rats.
Products sold as general animal repellents, based on taste and/or odor, are sometimes advertised to repel animals, including rats, from garbage bags.
In urban settings, cats and owls prey on roof rats but have little if any effect on well-established populations.

If living under a refrigerator or freezer, they may disable the unit by gnawing the electrical wires.
