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. Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces. It is recommended for use in homes because, unlike with poison baits, there is no risk of a rat dying in an inaccessible place and creating an odor problem. At present there are three rodenticides—zinc phosphide, cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), and bromethalin—registered and available for roof rat control. However, when a Norway rat population grows so large that competition from other rats for food, water and harborage increases, some members of the rat community may seek to find new areas to colonize during the daytime. That is not the case! They sleep in your attic all day, and then at dusk they wake up, and start moving around, and that's why you hear them after dark. Roof rats are also food hoarders, stashing supplies of food such as seeds and nuts. Rats may carry viruses such as Hantavirus and salmonella, and although they can also be a carrier of bubonic plague, that disease is not indigenous in the USA.

These diseases often share similar symptoms, and medical professionals must perform the proper diagnoses. It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing. Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces. At least in some parts of the United States and elsewhere in the world, the methods used to control rats have reduced Norway rat populations but have permitted roof rats to become more prominent, apparently because they are more difficult to control. You don't want to over-pay of course. Prune to raise the skirts and remove any nests constructed in the trees. If you have rats in your home, it's very important to do the job right the first time! I have seen dozens and dozens of cases of nightmare scenarios over many years, in which homeowners have paid pest control companies for a monthly contract that never ends. Statisticians estimate that rats destroy 20 percent of the world's food supply every year by feeding, and indirectly through contamination.

In some situations, pet food and poorly managed garbage may represent a major food resource. Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics. This is a great supplementary treatment to trapping when you are dealing with larger rodent populations, or for outdoor populations. Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off of the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist. Wire-mesh, live traps (Tomahawk®, Havahart®) are available for trapping rats. If you're not experienced in setting them, you may have some problems, so be careful. They are usually a shiny black, but may vary according to diet. Rat control requires an integrated approach that includes non-lethal tools such as careful inspections, upgraded sanitation, and rat-proofing structures.
