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.

The number of litters depends on the area and varies with nearness to the limit of their climatic range, availability of nutritious food, density of the local rat population, and the age of the rat. The Norway rat produces six to eight litters of six to nine young per year. Such caches may be found in a dismantled wood pile, attic, or behind boxes in a garage. Other vegetable, melon, berry, and fruit crops occasionally suffer relatively minor damage when adjacent to infested habitat such as riparian vegetation. Roof rats are prodigious breeders. The first step in controlling a roof rat infestation is to properly identify the rodents. They need not be baited.

Baiting - This method uses poisons, or rodenticides, to attract and kill rodents. The commercially available, expanded plastic treadle traps, such as the Victor Professional Rat Trap, are particularly effective if properly located in well-traveled paths. Generally, Roof rats stay within 100 miles inland. Trim all tree branches to further prevent entry. Grease marks (from the oil and dirt of rats) often appear along walls next to runways. These diseases often share similar symptoms, and medical professionals must perform the proper diagnoses. Rat densities (numbers of rats in a given area) are determined primarily by the suitability of the habitat—the amount of available nutritional and palatable food and nearby protective cover (shelter or harborage). Cage trapping is often considered to be the most humane way of dealing with an animal problem, and certainly when it comes to larger animals it is fair to say that it can be effective. Norway rats are a common mammalian pest of rice, but sometimes roof rats also feed on newly planted seed or the seedling as it emerges. Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions. 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.

Specifications may vary depending on bait manufacturer even though the active ingredient may be the same. It is recommended for use in homes because, unlike with poison baits, there is no risk of a rat dying in an inaccessible place and creating an odor problem. They often eat all the pulp from oranges while the fruit is still hanging on the tree, leaving only the empty rind. Floor drains and sewer pipes should have tight-fitting grates with openings less than 1/4 inch in diameter. Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control. For rats, all openings greater than 1/2" should be sealed. Norway rats are a common mammalian pest of rice, but sometimes roof rats also feed on newly planted seed or the seedling as it emerges. A few baits are strong enough to cause death with a single feeding. They have coarse, brown fur, with lighter fur on the undersides. It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing. Norway rats can climb, but not as well as roof rats, and are strong swimmers.
