Proper ladder safety is a must, as is roof safety. Roof rats range along the lower half of the East Coast and throughout the Gulf States upward into Arkansas. Floor drains and sewer pipes should have tight-fitting grates with openings less than 1/4 inch in diameter. 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. If you've sealed the house correctly, then you shouldn't trap any new rats after just the first three days. Only construction grade materials are used. The adequate inspection of a large facility for the presence and location of roof rats often requires a nighttime search when the facility is normally shut down. Roof rats can be controlled with the same baits used for Norway rats.
