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 very strong, and can injure your fingers. Tracking powders play an important role in structural rodent control. Sometimes rats get into the kitchen area and feed on stored foods. Norway rats are also omnivores and will eat just about anything that is found near where humans discard food. Roof rats are more aerial than Norway rats in their habitat selection and often live in trees or on vine-covered fences. The preferred habitat of Norway rats is just about anywhere people reside. 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. There are two basic methods of rat population reduction: Rats can squeeze into a hole the size of a quarter. 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. In some situations, pet food and poorly managed garbage may represent a major food resource.

For a one-time fee, we trap and remove all rats, and identify and reconstruct all rat entry points. Glue boards will catch roof rats, but, like traps, they must be located on beams, rafters, and along other travel routes, making them more difficult to place effectively for roof rats than for Norway rats or house mice. Our pest management professionals (PMPs) practice all techniques involved in Integrated Pest Management for rodents. Rat droppings are three times as large as mouse droppings. Other vegetable, melon, berry, and fruit crops occasionally suffer relatively minor damage when adjacent to infested habitat such as riparian vegetation. In most of our urban areas, Norway rats may be seen scurrying around after dark looking for food in garbage cans and other places where human refuse is found. Glue boards will catch roof rats, but, like traps, they must be located on beams, rafters, and along other travel routes, making them more difficult to place effectively for roof rats than for Norway rats or house mice. Roof rats can also enter openings in walls, eaves and roof from the branches of trees. They often eat all the pulp from oranges while the fruit is still hanging on the tree, leaving only the empty rind.
