Lives up to one year. Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption. Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource. Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions. Anticoagulants (slow-acting, chronic toxicants). Hundreds may be nesting in a city block-in underground burrows, in sewers, on roofs, inside buildings-with few people in the area realizing it. Nests inside and under buildings, or in piles of rubbish or wood. Exclusion is an important rodent control technique.

Nests inside and under buildings, or in piles of rubbish or wood. Norway rats are also omnivores and will eat just about anything that is found near where humans discard food. The only way to solve a rat or mouse problem is to find every last point of entry into the house, and seal it shut. They are very strong, and can injure your fingers. Exclusion and sealing of sites greater than ½ inch (about the size of a dime) using screens, flashing, door sweeps and other materials to keep rats from entering a structure. For rats, all openings greater than 1/2" should be sealed. Roof rats are adept climbers and not surprisingly are apt to build their nests in locations above ground. Tracking powders.

Traps should be placed flush with walls in areas of highest travel (as determined by Inspection). Shooting is rarely effective by itself and should be done in conjunction with trapping or baiting programs. If you're not experienced in setting them, you may have some problems, so be careful. Tracking powders play an important role in structural rodent control. Inspection is an important first step in getting rid of rats. 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. Attach rat guards to overhead utility wires and maintain them regularly. They have also been found living in sewer systems, but this is not common.
