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.

Removing clutter and any debris that creates hiding places rats can use as harborage sites. The whiskers and guard hairs enable the animals to travel adjacent to walls in the dark and in burrows. Grease marks are produced as the rodent travels along an edge, and the oils in their fur are deposited. However, rats are a nuisance animal wherever you choose to release them, and they also have a particularly low rate of survival once they have been relocated, so in most cases using humane lethal traps will be the best way to deal with the infestation. Exclusion and sealing of sites greater than ½ inch (about the size of a dime) using screens, flashing, door sweeps and other materials to keep rats from entering a structure. They also consume seeds, nuts, berries, and insects. Their burrowing habitats include soil along building foundations, under woodpiles and other piles of debris. Adult roof rats usually live about one year.

Lights (flashing or continuously on) may repel rats at first, but rats will quickly acclimate to them. Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off of the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist. Out-of-doors, roof rats may be present in low to moderate numbers with little sign in the way of tracks or droppings or runs and burrows. When necessary, roof rats will travel considerable distances (100 to 300 feet [30 to 90 m]) for food. For the characteristics of the various anticoagulant rodenticides see Norway Rats. Rats are responsible for the spread of many diseases. Black or brown, can be over 40 cm long, with a long tail, large ears and eyes, and a pointed nose. Control of roof rat damage in agriculture represents yet another scenario. For further information see Norway Rats. Roof rats are highly adaptable.

Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions. Rats tend to segregate themselves socially in both space and time. They use their keen sense of smell to locate and select food items, identify territories and travel routes, and recognize other rats, especially those of the opposite sex. Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption. It is unlikely, however, they will be any more effective for roof rats than for Norway rats. However, when a Norway rat population grows so large that competition from other rats for food, water and harborage increases, some members of the rat community may seek to find new areas to colonize during the daytime. All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice. In residences where rats may be living in the attic and feeding outdoors, the damage may be restricted to tearing up insulation for nesting or gnawing electrical wiring. Some of the more important non-chemical methods are: Norway rats can climb, but not as well as roof rats, and are strong swimmers. It actually makes it worse, because the rats are multiplying, dying, defecating, destroying insulation, chewing wires and chewing air ducts, while you wait for your next service.
