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.

High-frequency sound-producing devices are advertised for frightening rats, but almost no research exists on their effects specifically on roof rats. Trichinosis may be contracted through eating undercooked meat of animals that have fed on rats. No, they sleep in the attic all day. At about 3 months of age they are completely independent of the mother and are reproductively mature. In some situations, pet food and poorly managed garbage may represent a major food resource. It is best to contact pest management professionals for an inspection and evaluation.

Its worldwide geographic distribution suggests that it is much more suited to tropical and semitropical climates. The reproductive potential of one female Norway rat is about 50-60 young per year. Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures. Within a population, some rats will be easy to control, some difficult. Use enough traps to eliminate the rodents quickly. Roof Rats can enter homes and other structures through openings as small as ½ inch. Female adults will produce about seven litters per year and will mate again about 18 hours after giving birth to her litter of about eight pups. These kill traps are often baited with whole nuts and are most useful in trapping rats in trees. For more detailed information, see Rodent-proof Construction and Exclusion Methods.

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). The common wooden snap traps that are effective for Norway rats are effective for roof rats. Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics. Seal any openings larger than ¼ inch with caulk, wood, mesh, or other appropriate materials. While you will not reasonably be able to compensate for every possible rodent entry, you can greatly reduce the ease of entry for rodents (and thereby, reduce the population size) by taking the following measures: 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. The most commonly found rat pest in United States is the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus). Some of the first-generation anticoagulants (pindone and warfarin) are available as soluble rodenticides from which water baits can be prepared. There are still outbreaks of plague in the United States and around the world today. Snails are a favorite food, but don’t expect roof rats to eliminate a garden snail problem. I highly recommend snap traps, not live cage traps, certainly not glue boards, and most definitely not poison! Never poison rats, it doesn't solve the problem and it just creates more problems.
