Severe pruning and/or removal of certain ornamentals are often required to obtain a degree of lasting rat control. 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. When rodent-proofing against roof rats, pay close attention to the roof and roof line areas to assure all accesses are closed. The great adaptability of rats to human-created environments and the high fertility rate of rats make for quick recuperation of their populations.

Both roof rats and Norway rats have a well-developed sense of smell and are wary of new things that are introduced into their home range. When droppings are seen, it is a good practice to remove those droppings and later inspect to see whether new droppings were deposited. It is found in every state.
