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.

In dense populations, roof rats will establish a social hierarchy, wherein dominant males mate more than subordinate males. The elimination of food and water through good warehouse sanitation can do much to reduce rodent infestation. Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control. Read this article about how are rats getting in for more info.

From causing plague epidemics (the "Black Death" of Europe) to rat-bite fever, whether feeding on stored grain or gnawing electric wires, rats are enemies of humankind. The muzzle of the roof rat is pointed and the overall appearance of the roof rat is much more streamlined and sleek looking than a Norway rat. Traps should be placed flush with walls in areas of highest travel (as determined by Inspection). Norway rats build their nests in underground burrows where they mate, rear their young, store food and seek refuge from predators. Usually the peaks in breeding occur in the spring and fall. Fur is smooth. In agricultural settings, weasels, foxes, coyotes, and other predators prey on roof rats, but their take is inconsequential as a population control factor.

Adults range in weight from about 5-10 ounces. Rat treatment involves both non-chemical and chemical methods. Droppings are another good indicator of roof rat activity. All anticoagulants provide excellent roof rat control when prepared in acceptable baits. Trichinosis may be contracted through eating undercooked meat of animals that have fed on rats. Make sure that all doors, windows and screens fit tightly in their frames and repair those that do not. Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits. Lights (flashing or continuously on) may repel rats at first, but rats will quickly acclimate to them.
