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.

Trap at left is modified by fastening a piece of cardboard to expand its trigger size (traps with expanded treadles can also be purchased from several manufacturers). It is unlikely, however, they will be any more effective for roof rats than for Norway rats. They often eat all the pulp from oranges while the fruit is still hanging on the tree, leaving only the empty rind. Hundreds may be nesting in a city block-in underground burrows, in sewers, on roofs, inside buildings-with few people in the area realizing it. The young may continue to nurse until 4 or 5 weeks old. The roof rat is more at home in warm climates, and apparently less adaptable, than the Norway rat, which is why it has not spread throughout the country. Generally, Roof rats stay within 100 miles inland. The most common rat in the area is the Norway rat.

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. Rats leave the attic during the night, to go out and forage for water and food. Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything. Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences. No, they sleep in the attic all day. Roof Rats are predominate in coastal areas. Rodenticides were once categorized as acute (single-dose) or chronic (multiple dose) toxicants. It is best to contact pest management professionals for an inspection and evaluation. The total cost will probably run between $300 - $500 to remove all the rats and seal the entry holes shut, and it may seem more up-front than a low monthly deal, but you've got to do it right, and then you won't have to worry about rats any more. While you are preventing future rat population growth through inspection, sanitation, and exclusion, you will also want to begin working towards elimination of the population that is already present through trapping and baiting. Once established, they readily breed and thrive within buildings, just as Norway rats do.

Droppings Rats produce a lot of feces and the presence of their fecal droppings is a surefire way to spot an infestation. Lights (flashing or continuously on) may repel rats at first, but rats will quickly acclimate to them. Roof Rats can enter homes and other structures through openings as small as ½ inch. The smallest imperfections during the construction and roofing of a home can lead to a rat infestation. Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome is transferred via inhalation of rodent urine, droppings or saliva. If the food is in an exposed area and too large to be eaten quickly, but not too large to be moved, they will usually carry it to a hiding place before eating it. Okay, the first and most important thing you have to do is find out how rats are getting into the building. Also, be careful when setting snap traps. Rats leave the attic during the night, to go out and forage for water and food. Droppings - Roof Rat droppings are 1/4 to 1/2 inch in length, capsule shaped, with blunt ends. Products sold as general animal repellents, based on taste and/or odor, are sometimes advertised to repel animals, including rats, from garbage bags.
