Roof rats range along the lower half of the East Coast and throughout the Gulf States upward into Arkansas.

Body is smaller and sleeker than the Norway rat’s. Setting a trap to collect a few specimens may be the only sure way to identify the rat or rats involved. They may also enter through ill-fitted doors, windows, or screens, and air vents that are not in sound or working order.

Dense shrubbery, vine-covered trees and fences, and vine ground cover make ideal harborage for roof rats.
