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.

Keeping vegetation thinned out or removed from the perimeter of buildings. Within a year, one female may be responsible for up to 40 new rodents. The first step in controlling a roof rat infestation is to properly identify the rodents. They may eat vegetation, but prefer to meat or meat-related wastes. While they may not kill the stalk outright, secondary organisms generally invade and reduce the sugar quality. Dense shrubbery, vine-covered trees and fences, and vine ground cover make ideal harborage for roof rats. At present there are three rodenticides—zinc phosphide, cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), and bromethalin—registered and available for roof rat control.

Generally, Roof rats stay within 100 miles inland. Roof rats are prodigious breeders. They prefer to consume fruits (sometimes referred to as the “fruit rat” or “citrus rat”) and nuts, although roof rats are omnivorous and will feed on almost anything available to them. 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. 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. Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource. From causing plague epidemics (the "Black Death" of Europe) to rat-bite fever, whether feeding on stored grain or gnawing electric wires, rats are enemies of humankind. The damage control methods used for roof rats are essentially the same as for Norway rats. They prefer gnawing on wood but may also damage property, electrical wiring, and food packaging. If you're not experienced in setting them, you may have some problems, so be careful. Norway rats can climb, but not as well as roof rats, and are strong swimmers.

Rats may carry viruses such as Hantavirus and salmonella, and although they can also be a carrier of bubonic plague, that disease is not indigenous in the USA. Roof rats are also food hoarders, stashing supplies of food such as seeds and nuts. In rare instances, isolated populations are found in areas not within their normal distribution range in the United States. Also, be careful when setting snap traps. Inspection is an important first step in getting rid of rats. Norway rats and the roof rats are very different in their habits, habitats and behavior, so the first requirement of a rat treatment program is to correctly identify the rat and develop a treatment plan that works for that species. The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors. Without this knowledge, both time and money are wasted, and the chances of failure are increased. Roof rats are polygamous and group themselves into colonies of multiple males and females. As their name suggests, roof rats may be found in elevated areas such as trees, rafters, attics and roofs. Usually the peaks in breeding occur in the spring and fall.
