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.

Liquid baits may be an effective alternative in situations where normal baits are not readily accepted, especially where water is scarce or where rats must travel some distance to reach water. The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors. There is often a correlation between rat problems and the keeping of dogs, especially where dogs are fed outdoors. Other rat signs may also assist, but be aware that both species may be present. Grease marks are produced as the rodent travels along an edge, and the oils in their fur are deposited. Bait stations are sometimes difficult to place for roof rat control because of the rodents’ overhead traveling characteristics. Visual sightings of live or dead rodents indicate rodent activity. The key is to control rat populations, not individual rats.

Once established, they readily breed and thrive within buildings, just as Norway rats do. Becomes sexually mature between two and five months, producing four to six litters per year that consist of six to eight young each. Therefore, the body oils on a rat’s fur gets deposited on corners and edges of walls and around holes and gaps they use to enter into a wall void. Some of their habitats include garbage dumps, sewers and fields. They prefer to consume fruits (sometimes referred to as the “fruit rat” or “citrus rat”) and nuts, although roof rats are omnivorous and will feed on almost anything available to them. Most commercial baits are registered for both species of rats and for house mice, but often they are less acceptable to roof rats than to the other species. A new second-generation anticoagulant, difethialone, is presently being developed and EPA registration is anticipated in the near future. Roof rats are likely to found in coastal, near-coastal areas and port cities. A rat does not want to be exposed to danger outside for very long! If you think you can just seal shut the entry holes into the house during the daylight when they are outside, that is incorrect. Labels will specify where and under what conditions the bait can be used. Sometimes they transmit disease indirectly, for example, when fleas first bite an infected rat, then a person.

Once established, they readily breed and thrive within buildings, just as Norway rats do. Roof rats are also food hoarders, stashing supplies of food such as seeds and nuts. Sometimes rats get into the kitchen area and feed on stored foods. Because of the diseases they can carry, you should also check up on the equipment that you will need to safely trap the rats without any risk to your health. For example, only zinc phosphide can be applied on the ground to control rats in sugarcane or macadamia orchards, and the second-generation anticoagulants, cholecalciferol and bromethalin, can be used only in and around buildings, not around crops or away from buildings even in non crop situations. Various sounds that indicate rodent activity include gnawing, scratching, and digging noises. It is best to contact pest management professionals for an inspection and evaluation. 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. With lemons they may eat only the rind and leave the hanging fruit intact. No chemical repellents are specifically registered for rat control. When rodent-proofing against roof rats, pay close attention to the roof and roof line areas to assure all accesses are closed.
