Rodents are brown to blackish in color, have a slender body and a long scaly tail. The tail is usually longer than the head and body.

Habits

Rodents are communal animals. A female on average will have 3 litters a year having approximately 5 to 8 young per litter. They may live near the ground but, usually make their homes in attics and rafters of a building. Roof Rats are nocturnal. Most of their activity occurs between midnight and 4 am. Rodents are attracted to areas where there has already been an infestation. Rats will eat just about any type of food, grains, meats, fallen fruits to name a few. Signs of a rodent infestation are of course their droppings. The size of the droppings may vary but it is usually about 1 half inch in length and will have a pointed end. Another sign is a brown stain you may find on walls or other obstructions. This is from their body oil. Rats will take the same path way to and from their nests. Also you may notice gnawing on wood or wires. You might hear scratching, chewing or scurrying coming from your attic or in the walls. The damage that rodents cause can become a safety issue for you and your family. Not just with the chewing of wires but with the diseases they can carry, such as typhus, and rat bite fever.

Management Approaches

There are things you can do to prevent your home from becoming a haven for rodents. Trim trees and vines that are near your home. Dense shrubbery should be removed if it is close to the house as this is a prime rodent harboring area. Wood piles should also not be kept near the house. Pick up any fallen fruit from trees. Chimney caps are also a useful tool in keeping rodents for getting into your home. We also recommend screening laundry vents and sealing holes around plumbing or electric areas.
