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.

  • What Are Rats?

Some traps should be placed on the floor, but more should be placed above floor level (for example, on top of stacked commodities). Within a year, one female may be responsible for up to 40 new rodents. Anticoagulant paraffin-type bait blocks provide an alternative to bait stations containing pelleted or loose cereal bait. 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. For rats, all openings greater than 1/2" should be sealed. These rats are primarily active at night. 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). Their burrowing habitats include soil along building foundations, under woodpiles and other piles of debris.

Wire-mesh, live traps (Tomahawk®, Havahart®) are available for trapping rats. They often eat all the pulp from oranges while the fruit is still hanging on the tree, leaving only the empty rind. Such caches may be found in a dismantled wood pile, attic, or behind boxes in a garage. This is a great supplementary treatment to trapping when you are dealing with larger rodent populations, or for outdoor populations. The young are able to breed before they are four months old. Rat control using chemical products involves baits designed to kill rats. Indoors, runways appear as clean paths through dust or dirt. For further information see Norway Rats. Roof rats are polygamous and group themselves into colonies of multiple males and females. Where legal and not hazardous, shooting of roof rats is effective at dusk as they travel along utility lines. In most of our urban areas, Norway rats may be seen scurrying around after dark looking for food in garbage cans and other places where human refuse is found.

At least in some parts of the United States and elsewhere in the world, the methods used to control rats have reduced Norway rat populations but have permitted roof rats to become more prominent, apparently because they are more difficult to control. The preferred habitat of Norway rats is just about anywhere people reside. Roof rats are highly adaptable. Trapping is an effective alternative to pesticides and recommended in some situations. Other rat signs may also assist, but be aware that both species may be present. It is unlikely, however, they will be any more effective for roof rats than for Norway rats. Anticoagulant paraffin-type bait blocks provide an alternative to bait stations containing pelleted or loose cereal bait. Adults range in weight from about 5-10 ounces. You don't want to over-pay of course. They prefer to live in high places, but may live in a variety of environments. The young are able to breed before they are four months old.
