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.

Pelleted or loose cereal anticoagulant baits are used extensively in tamper-resistant bait boxes or stations for a permanent baiting program for Norway rats and house mice. They need not be baited. Rat control requires an integrated approach that includes non-lethal tools such as careful inspections, upgraded sanitation, and rat-proofing structures. Trim all tree branches to further prevent entry. 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. See Rat Trapping Tips and Rat Baiting Tips. Where anticoagulant resistance is known or suspected, the use of first-generation anticoagulants should be avoided in favor of the second-generation anticoagulants or one of the non anticoagulant rodenticides like bromethalin or cholecalciferol. Roof rats are not protected by law and can be controlled any time with mechanical or chemical methods.

Norway rats are usually active at dusk or during the night and are inactive during daylight hours. The 5 to 8 young in the litter develop rapidly, growing hair within a week. The key is to control rat populations, not individual rats. If rats are seen during the day that usually means a very large rodent population is nearby. Floor drains and sewer pipes should have tight-fitting grates with openings less than 1/4 inch in diameter. Sometimes rats get into the kitchen area and feed on stored foods. Exclusion is an important rodent control technique. Roof Rats are predominate in coastal areas. Seal any openings larger than ¼ inch with caulk, wood, mesh, or other appropriate materials. Distinctions must be made as to which rodenticide (registered product) to use, the method of application or placement, and the amount of bait to apply. See Rat Trapping Tips and Rat Baiting Tips.

Rats are responsible for the spread of many diseases. We provide the most extensive service and the best warranty plan in the industry. Keeping vegetation thinned out or removed from the perimeter of buildings. Lights (flashing or continuously on) may repel rats at first, but rats will quickly acclimate to them. 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. 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. The wildlife operator will seal shut all the rat entry points, and that's the ONLY way to solve a rat problem forever. The food habits of roof rats outdoors in some respects resemble those of tree squirrels, since they prefer a wide variety of fruit and nuts. You will know the bait is working when the bait is no longer being consumed. Norway rats are common around human residences and industrial and commercial areas. Without this knowledge, both time and money are wasted, and the chances of failure are increased.
