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.

Inspection is an important first step in getting rid of rats. Seal any openings larger than ¼ inch with caulk, wood, mesh, or other appropriate materials. Rats are responsible for the spread of many diseases. For the characteristics of the various anticoagulant rodenticides see Norway Rats. Once you are confident that you have caught all of the rats that are in the attic, then it will be time to check for any insulation or wires in the attic that need to be replaced, and for any nesting material to remove, and feces to clean up. In agricultural settings, weasels, foxes, coyotes, and other predators prey on roof rats, but their take is inconsequential as a population control factor. When droppings are seen, it is a good practice to remove those droppings and later inspect to see whether new droppings were deposited. The latter two were ineffective for roof rats.

  • Types of Rats

Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed. You don't want to over-pay of course. There is less tendency to see droppings, urine, or tracks on the floor in buildings because rats may live overhead between floors, above false ceilings, or in utility spaces, and venture down to feed or obtain food. The older rodenticides, formerly referred to as acute toxicants, such as arsenic, phosphorus, red squill, and ANTU, are either no longer registered or of little importance in rat control. They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source. Sounds in the attic are often the first indication of the presence of roof rats in a residence. In homes, the attic and garage rafters close to the infestation are the best trapping sites. Some type of clean food can be used to entice the rats to the boxes, or the tracking powders can be used in conjunction with an anticoagulant bait, with both placed in the same station. Roof rats are susceptible to all of the various anticoagulant rodenticides, but less so than Norway rats. In some situations in which the rats have been eliminated, cats that are good hunters may prevent reinfestation. Rat droppings are small, dark, cylindrically shaped, and are about one-half inch to three-fourths inch long with blunt ends.

Other rat signs may also assist, but be aware that both species may be present. Some traps should be placed on the floor, but more should be placed above floor level (for example, on top of stacked commodities). Roof rats have hairless, scaly tails that are longer than their heads and bodies. Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species. Pesticides must be registered for rat control by federal and/or state authorities and used in accordance with label directions. They are usually a shiny black, but may vary according to diet. When necessary, roof rats will travel considerable distances (100 to 300 feet [30 to 90 m]) for food. Citrus trees, having very low hanging skirts, are more prone to damage because they provide rats with protection. The traditional style snap traps are still among the best ways of dealing with a rat problem, and these are simple to set and bait, and you should look to place them in areas where the rats are active, so where you can see feces and smudges on the walls. Roof rats are highly adaptable. Within a population, some rats will be easy to control, some difficult.
