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.

Control of roof rat damage in agriculture represents yet another scenario. Overhead trap sets are particularly useful for roof rats. Roof Rats are predominate in coastal areas. Wire-mesh, live traps (Tomahawk®, Havahart®) are available for trapping rats. I highly recommend snap traps, not live cage traps, certainly not glue boards, and most definitely not poison! Never poison rats, it doesn't solve the problem and it just creates more problems. You can often find smudges as an indication of rats, but they can often stay on walls for a long time, so it might be from an old infestation. Always be sure that fresh bait is available continuously until rats stop feeding. Burrows Or Nests Holes in the ground around foundations, plus nests in attics or trees are evidence of a rat problem.

In food-processing and storage facilities, they will feed on nearly all food items, though their food preferences may differ from those of Norway rats. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide. In food-processing and food-storage facilities, roof rats do about the same type of damage as Norway rats, and damage is visually hard to differentiate. Some of the first-generation anticoagulants (pindone and warfarin) are available as soluble rodenticides from which water baits can be prepared. They can successfully mate throughout the year, meaning that if you have rats in the attic, then there is a good possibility that they will have a nest of baby rats that you will need to deal with as well. Other rat signs may also assist, but be aware that both species may be present. Pesticides must be registered for rat control by federal and/or state authorities and used in accordance with label directions. ALWAYS USE RESPIRATORY PROTECTION WHEN REMOVING RODENT DROPPINGS. Removing clutter and any debris that creates hiding places rats can use as harborage sites. However, a few differences must be taken into account. Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed.

  • How to Stop Roof Rat Damage

Droppings - Roof Rat droppings are 1/4 to 1/2 inch in length, capsule shaped, with blunt ends. Roof rats are omnivores and will feed on many types of vegetation such as fruits, grains, seeds and grocery produce. The fumigation of structures, truck trailers, or rail cars should only be done by a licensed pest control operator who is trained in fumigation techniques. Rat control requires an integrated approach that includes non-lethal tools such as careful inspections, upgraded sanitation, and rat-proofing structures. Also, carry out a visual examination of the attic to find the holes they were using to get in and out of the attic. 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. Bait stations are sometimes difficult to place for roof rat control because of the rodents’ overhead traveling characteristics. Always be sure that fresh bait is available continuously until rats stop feeding. The young may continue to nurse until 4 or 5 weeks old. Rats can squeeze into a hole the size of a quarter. Your inspection process must include ladder work and climbing on a roof.
