In tropical or semi tropical regions, the season may be nearly year-round.

They can transmit these diseases through physical contact, bites, by contamination or by fleas that are feeding on the rodent.

Roof rats are more aerial than Norway rats in their habitat selection and often live in trees or on vine-covered fences.
Young rats generally cannot be trapped until about 1 month old.
Eliminate vines growing on buildings and, when feasible, overhanging tree limbs that may be used as travel routes.
Other indicators can include grease marks along surfaces as well as nests.
There is less tendency to see droppings, urine, or tracks on the floor in buildings because rats may live overhead between floors, above false ceilings, or in utility spaces, and venture down to feed or obtain food.
The young may continue to nurse until 4 or 5 weeks old.
Rats rely more on their keen senses of smell, taste, touch, and hearing than on vision.
Their presence is typically detected by the occurrence of their droppings, holes chewed into bags and containers, and chewed nesting materials.
The Norway rat produces six to eight litters of six to nine young per year.
Sounds in the attic are often the first indication of the presence of roof rats in a residence.
