Trichinosis may be contracted through eating undercooked meat of animals that have fed on rats. They may also enter through ill-fitted doors, windows, or screens, and air vents that are not in sound or working order. Because of the diseases they can carry, you should also check up on the equipment that you will need to safely trap the rats without any risk to your health. Store pet food in sealed containers and do not leave it out at night.

Rats are easier to exclude than mice because rats a typically larger. Then the rats should be trapped and removed. If living under a refrigerator or freezer, they may disable the unit by gnawing the electrical wires. Severe pruning and/or removal of certain ornamentals are often required to obtain a degree of lasting rat control. Rodenticides were once categorized as acute (single-dose) or chronic (multiple dose) toxicants. Roof rats are not protected by law and can be controlled any time with mechanical or chemical methods. Our pest management professionals (PMPs) practice all techniques involved in Integrated Pest Management for rodents. In food-processing and food-storage facilities, roof rats do about the same type of damage as Norway rats, and damage is visually hard to differentiate.

The elimination of food and water through good warehouse sanitation can do much to reduce rodent infestation. If the food is in an exposed area and too large to be eaten quickly, but not too large to be moved, they will usually carry it to a hiding place before eating it. All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice. Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species. Roof rats are more aerial than Norway rats in their habitat selection and often live in trees or on vine-covered fences. In residences where rats may be living in the attic and feeding outdoors, the damage may be restricted to tearing up insulation for nesting or gnawing electrical wiring. 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. Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything.
