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.

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. Seal any openings larger than ¼ inch with caulk, wood, mesh, or other appropriate materials. Once you know the location of the rats, you can set traps or place bait. You hear the scratching rodents in your attic at night, correct? So you might assume that the rats are entering your attic at night. Rats are responsible for the spread of many diseases. If you need to hire professional help, you can call us. Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed. Some of the first-generation anticoagulants (pindone and warfarin) are available as soluble rodenticides from which water baits can be prepared.

If you have heard noises in your walls or attic, chances are you have rats. Roof rats are not accomplished swimmers and are not usually found in sewers. Strip and destroy all unwanted fruit when the harvest period is over. Becomes sexually mature between two and five months, producing four to six litters per year that consist of six to eight young each. Trim all tree branches to further prevent entry. Always be sure that fresh bait is available continuously until rats stop feeding. Listen for rat evidence, like their scurrying and running noises in the attic, and scratching in the walls. Traps may be nailed to beams or studs and secured to pipes with wires. Rats are nocturnal and are not commonly seen. Adults range in weight from about 5-10 ounces.

The damage control methods used for roof rats are essentially the same as for Norway rats. Roof rats will often move into sugarcane and citrus groves. Between 9 and 14 days, their eyes open, and they begin to explore for food and move about near their nest. 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. Where label instructions permit, small blocks can be placed or fastened on rafters, ledges, or even attached to tree limbs, where they are readily accessible to the arboreal rats. Lights (flashing or continuously on) may repel rats at first, but rats will quickly acclimate to them. At birth they are hairless, and their eyes are closed. Roof rats frequently enter buildings from the roof or from accesses near overhead utility lines, which they use to travel from area to area. In rare instances, isolated populations are found in areas not within their normal distribution range in the United States. You might find holes in walls and wood. Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways.
