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.

Norway rats are usually active at dusk or during the night and are inactive during daylight hours. As their name suggests, roof rats may be found in elevated areas such as trees, rafters, attics and roofs. The young may continue to nurse until 4 or 5 weeks old. The Norway rat is also called brown rat, house rat, sewer rat, and wharf rat. In the third week they begin to take solid food. The more dominant individuals occupy the better habitats and feed whenever they like, whereas the less fortunate individuals may have to occupy marginal habitat and feed when the more dominant rats are not present. Another important treatment component is customer education so the customer understands the concepts of the proposed control program. Grease marks (from the oil and dirt of rats) often appear along walls next to runways.

The preferred habitat of Norway rats is just about anywhere people reside. There are holes all over - missing roof vent screens, plumbing stacks, gaps between the roof and fascia board, gaps in the siding, areas where pipes go into the house, etc. Roof rat droppings are 12 to 13 mm with pointed ends, whereas Norway rat droppings are 18 to 20 mm and capsule shaped. The elimination of food and water through good warehouse sanitation can do much to reduce rodent infestation. 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. Historically, infected fleas have transmitted serious plagues from rats to humans. Use proper garbage and refuse disposal containers and implement exterior sanitation programs. Grease marks are produced as the rodent travels along an edge, and the oils in their fur are deposited. Norway rats are also polygamous and form colonies of many males and females. For a one-time fee, we trap and remove all rats, and identify and reconstruct all rat entry points. Only after you've sealed the openings shut, you should start trapping and removal.
