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.

Rats have acute hearing and can readily detect noises. Norway rats are also omnivores and will eat just about anything that is found near where humans discard food. Roof rats are omnivores and will feed on many types of vegetation such as fruits, grains, seeds and grocery produce. Roof rats will often move into sugarcane and citrus groves. Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource. Since roof rats rarely dig burrows, burrow fumigants are of limited use; however, if they have constructed burrows, then fumigants that are effective on Norway rats, such as aluminum phosphide and gas cartridges, will be effective on roof rats. They prefer to live in high places, but may live in a variety of environments. In most instances, rats are very wary.

Caution should be taken to avoid trapping nontarget species such as tree squirrels. This is a great supplementary treatment to trapping when you are dealing with larger rodent populations, or for outdoor populations. Its worldwide geographic distribution suggests that it is much more suited to tropical and semitropical climates. I'm not going to go into detail about harnesses and chicken ladders and such, but be careful! Then, when in the attic, wear a respirator - you don't want to breathe in fiberglass insulation, dust or mold, or the variety of diseases associated with rats. Attach rat guards to overhead utility wires and maintain them regularly. In most instances, rats are very wary. Although roof rats have not yet been connected to HPS, everyone is advised to use caution when dealing with an infestation. Touch is an important sense in rats. Once you are confident that you have caught all of the rats that are in the attic, then it will be time to check for any insulation or wires in the attic that need to be replaced, and for any nesting material to remove, and feces to clean up. Their keen sense of hearing also aids in their ability to detect and escape danger. Dense shrubbery, vine-covered trees and fences, and vine ground cover make ideal harborage for roof rats.

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. Rodent-proofing against roof rats usually requires more time to find entry points than for Norway rats because of their greater climbing ability. They may eat the bark of smaller citrus branches and girdle them. Rats have been plaguing humans for centuries, famous for their continuously-growing sharp teeth, their desire for human food, their tendency to get into homes and buildings and create nests and their health problems - rats are the essence of a pest. Timing a sealup for rats is impossible, because they leave for short periods, and they don't all leave at the same time of night. Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces. These kill traps are often baited with whole nuts and are most useful in trapping rats in trees. While you are preventing future rat population growth through inspection, sanitation, and exclusion, you will also want to begin working towards elimination of the population that is already present through trapping and baiting. Droppings are another good indicator of roof rat activity. If you have rats in your home, it's very important to do the job right the first time! I have seen dozens and dozens of cases of nightmare scenarios over many years, in which homeowners have paid pest control companies for a monthly contract that never ends. Usually the peaks in breeding occur in the spring and fall.
