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.
Norway rats can climb, but not as well as roof rats, and are strong swimmers.
Roof rats have a strong tendency to avoid new objects in their environment and this neophobia can influence control efforts, for it may take several days before they will approach a bait station or trap.
Snap traps are actually the very best way to do it.

Because roof rats are fast and agile, they are not easy prey for mammalian or avian predators.

Roof rats can be carriers of diseases.

Liquid baits may be an effective alternative in situations where normal baits are not readily accepted, especially where water is scarce or where rats must travel some distance to reach water.
If you're not experienced in setting them, you may have some problems, so be careful.

Control of roof rat damage in agriculture represents yet another scenario.
Their presence is typically detected by the occurrence of their droppings, holes chewed into bags and containers, and chewed nesting materials.
If the food is in an exposed area and too large to be eaten quickly, but not too large to be moved, they will usually carry it to a hiding place before eating it.
