They use their keen sense of smell to locate and select food items, identify territories and travel routes, and recognize other rats, especially those of the opposite sex. Typically, 3 or more litters are produced annually. Roof rats are not accomplished swimmers and are not usually found in sewers. Touch is an important sense in rats. The whiskers and guard hairs enable the animals to travel adjacent to walls in the dark and in burrows. In tree crops, some cultural practices can be helpful. Tracking powders are used much less often for roof rats than for Norway rats because roof rats frequent overhead areas within buildings. Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off of the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist.

Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces. Lights (flashing or continuously on) may repel rats at first, but rats will quickly acclimate to them. Rat densities (numbers of rats in a given area) are determined primarily by the suitability of the habitat—the amount of available nutritional and palatable food and nearby protective cover (shelter or harborage). Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off of the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist. Rats that are captured should be humanely destroyed and not released elsewhere because of their role in disease transmission, damage potential, and detrimental effect on native wildlife. Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed. Also, carry out a visual examination of the attic to find the holes they were using to get in and out of the attic. Then the rats should be trapped and removed.

  • Rat Infestation

The first step in controlling a roof rat infestation is to properly identify the rodents. Grease marks (from the oil and dirt of rats) often appear along walls next to runways. Specifications may vary depending on bait manufacturer even though the active ingredient may be the same. They may eat vegetation, but prefer to meat or meat-related wastes. Other vegetable, melon, berry, and fruit crops occasionally suffer relatively minor damage when adjacent to infested habitat such as riparian vegetation. They are constantly exploring surroundings and notice changes and are suspicious by nature. They may eat the bark of smaller citrus branches and girdle them. Trapping is the preferred method of indoor control.
