You can often find smudges as an indication of rats, but they can often stay on walls for a long time, so it might be from an old infestation. Overhead trap sets are particularly useful for roof rats. Many rats may cache or hoard considerable amounts of solid food, which they eat later. Killing the rats may not be the best answer (it is not as simple as just exterminating them all) . It is difficult to find suitable places to lay the tracking powder that will not create a potential problem of contaminating food or materials below the placement sites. Rodent-infested pallets of goods can be tarped and fumigated on an individual or collective basis. Roof rats can be carriers of diseases.

In rare instances, isolated populations are found in areas not within their normal distribution range in the United States. Various sounds that indicate rodent activity include gnawing, scratching, and digging noises. Rats, like mice, are omnivorous rodents. These rats are nocturnal and are excellent climbers. These can be identified by the brown smudges of grease that comes from the rat's fur, and should all be sealed to prevent future rat infestations in the attic. However, rats are a nuisance animal wherever you choose to release them, and they also have a particularly low rate of survival once they have been relocated, so in most cases using humane lethal traps will be the best way to deal with the infestation.
