Other vegetable, melon, berry, and fruit crops occasionally suffer relatively minor damage when adjacent to infested habitat such as riparian vegetation. Rodent-proofing against roof rats usually requires more time to find entry points than for Norway rats because of their greater climbing ability. Trapping Rat densities (numbers of rats in a given area) are determined primarily by the suitability of the habitat—the amount of available nutritional and palatable food and nearby protective cover (shelter or harborage). Look for fresh droppings. They also feed on a variety of vegetative parts of ornamental and native plant materials. Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics. Control methods must reflect an understanding of the roof rat’s habitat requirements, reproductive capabilities, food habits, life history, behavior, senses, movements, and the dynamics of its population structure.

Also, roof rats are likely to consume insects. Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits. Norway rats are a common mammalian pest of rice, but sometimes roof rats also feed on newly planted seed or the seedling as it emerges. Pocket gopher box-type traps (such as the DK-2 Gopher Getter) can be modified to catch rats by reversing the action of the trigger. They use their tails for balance while traveling along overhead utility lines. It is best to contact pest management professionals for an inspection and evaluation. The smallest imperfections during the construction and roofing of a home can lead to a rat infestation. Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species.

In rare instances, isolated populations are found in areas not within their normal distribution range in the United States. For best results, try several baits to find out which one rats consume most. Roof rats are susceptible to all of the various anticoagulant rodenticides, but less so than Norway rats. Distinctions must be made as to which rodenticide (registered product) to use, the method of application or placement, and the amount of bait to apply. They prefer gnawing on wood but may also damage property, electrical wiring, and food packaging. Also, Norway rats may prey upon fish, poultry, mice, birds, small reptiles and amphibians. If you have heard noises in your walls or attic, chances are you have rats. Another important treatment component is customer education so the customer understands the concepts of the proposed control program.
