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.

  • Rat Droppings

Roof rat droppings are 12 to 13 mm with pointed ends, whereas Norway rat droppings are 18 to 20 mm and capsule shaped. 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. Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces. The efficacy of such products for rats is generally lacking. They may eat vegetation, but prefer to meat or meat-related wastes. Shooting is rarely effective by itself and should be done in conjunction with trapping or baiting programs. Presently, only one such modified trap is commercially available. Norway rats are common around human residences and industrial and commercial areas.

  • Baiting Tips for Roof Rats

Norway rats build their nests in underground burrows where they mate, rear their young, store food and seek refuge from predators. Read more about where rats live. Our pest management professionals (PMPs) practice all techniques involved in Integrated Pest Management for rodents. Since none of these are anticoagulants, all can be used to control anticoagulant resistant populations of roof rats. They prefer gnawing on wood but may also damage property, electrical wiring, and food packaging. Our professional wildlife professionals may not show you how to kill the rats but instead use rat repellents, rat fumigants and rat trapping systems to ensure the effectiveness of the rat control method, without physically harming the rats. Use a powerful flashlight to spot rats and to determine travel routes for the best locations to set baits and traps. Lights (flashing or continuously on) may repel rats at first, but rats will quickly acclimate to them. Black or brown, can be over 40 cm long, with a long tail, large ears and eyes, and a pointed nose. Rats can also transmit rat bite fever through bacteria in their mouth.

Some of their habitats include garbage dumps, sewers and fields. The total cost will probably run between $300 - $500 to remove all the rats and seal the entry holes shut, and it may seem more up-front than a low monthly deal, but you've got to do it right, and then you won't have to worry about rats any more. Some of the first-generation anticoagulants (pindone and warfarin) are available as soluble rodenticides from which water baits can be prepared. Floor drains and sewer pipes should have tight-fitting grates with openings less than 1/4 inch in diameter. Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient. The young are able to breed before they are four months old. Make sure that all doors, windows and screens fit tightly in their frames and repair those that do not. Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control. 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. In dense populations, roof rats will establish a social hierarchy, wherein dominant males mate more than subordinate males. Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions.
