Burrows Or Nests Holes in the ground around foundations, plus nests in attics or trees are evidence of a rat problem. Norway rats and the roof rats are very different in their habits, habitats and behavior, so the first requirement of a rat treatment program is to correctly identify the rat and develop a treatment plan that works for that species. 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. Like the Norway rat, the roof rat is implicated in the transmission of a number of diseases to humans, including murine typhus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis (food poisoning), rat-bite fever, and plague. Scientists have noted that the roof rat’s long tail is adapted to enhance their ability to climb and functions to assists them in balancing. High-frequency sound-producing devices are advertised for frightening rats, but almost no research exists on their effects specifically on roof rats. Roof rats can also enter openings in walls, eaves and roof from the branches of trees. They are sometimes found living in rice fields or around poultry or other farm buildings as well as in industrial sites where food and shelter are available.

Labels will specify where and under what conditions the bait can be used. Dense shrubbery, vine-covered trees and fences, and vine ground cover make ideal harborage for roof rats.
