Rats are responsible for the spread of many diseases.
I'm not going to go into detail about harnesses and chicken ladders and such, but be careful! Then, when in the attic, wear a respirator - you don't want to breathe in fiberglass insulation, dust or mold, or the variety of diseases associated with rats.
The traditional style snap traps are still among the best ways of dealing with a rat problem, and these are simple to set and bait, and you should look to place them in areas where the rats are active, so where you can see feces and smudges on the walls.
Generally, a few more feedings are necessary to produce death with the first-generation anticoagulants (warfarin, pindone, diphacinone, and chlorophacinone) but this is less significant with the second-generation anticoagulants (bromadiolone and brodifacoum).
A preferred categorization would be “anticoagulants” and “non-anticoagulants” or “other rodenticides.
A vegetation-free margin around the grove will slow rat invasions because rats are more susceptible to predation when crossing unfamiliar open areas.
The reproductive potential of one female Norway rat is about 50-60 young per year.
Droppings - Roof Rat droppings are 1/4 to 1/2 inch in length, capsule shaped, with blunt ends.
Body is smaller and sleeker than the Norway rat’s.
They prefer to consume fruits (sometimes referred to as the “fruit rat” or “citrus rat”) and nuts, although roof rats are omnivorous and will feed on almost anything available to them.
Young rats generally cannot be trapped until about 1 month old.
Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available.
Newer rodenticides are much more efficacious and have resulted in the phasing out of these older materials over the last 20 years.
Roof rats frequently enter buildings from the roof or from accesses near overhead utility lines, which they use to travel from area to area.
In controlling roof rats with rodenticides, a sharp distinction must be made between control in and around buildings and control away from buildings such as in landfills and dumps, along drainage ditches and streams, in sewer water evaporation ponds, and in parks.
Rats leave the attic during the night, to go out and forage for water and food.
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 have been plaguing humans for centuries, famous for their continuously-growing sharp teeth, their desire for human food, their tendency to get into homes and buildings and create nests and their health problems - rats are the essence of a pest.
When practical, remove extraneous vegetation adjacent to the crop that may provide shelter for rats.
In a human environment, the rodents will consume almost any food to which they have access.
This is why traps and bait stations may be avoided for a day or two.
Their presence is typically detected by the occurrence of their droppings, holes chewed into bags and containers, and chewed nesting materials.

They are usually a shiny black, but may vary according to diet.
