They may not be effective on roof rats, however, because of their usual placement. In a human environment, the rodents will consume almost any food to which they have access. Since roof rats rarely dig burrows, burrow fumigants are of limited use; however, if they have constructed burrows, then fumigants that are effective on Norway rats, such as aluminum phosphide and gas cartridges, will be effective on roof rats. These rats are nocturnal and are excellent climbers. Read more about what rats eat. They also often chew on inedible materials such as books, soap, and cans.

They have also been found living in sewer systems, but this is not common. It will get rid of the rats by making it difficult for them to enter the home or structure. Some of their habitats include garbage dumps, sewers and fields. They may be frightened by sound-producing devices for awhile but they become accustomed to constant and frequently repeated sounds quickly. As mentioned above, roof rats prefer above ground nesting locations in shrubs, trees, and dense vegetation. In food-processing and food-storage facilities, roof rats do about the same type of damage as Norway rats, and damage is visually hard to differentiate. In situations where rats are not controlled with conventional products, fumigation of transport vehicles or rat ground burrows may sometimes be needed. Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything.

Urine Stains & Odors - Rodent urine deposited on rodent runways appear as a line of fine drops or streaks under an ultraviolet flashlight, or black light tool. Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource. In landscaped yards they often live in overgrown shrubbery or vines, feeding on ornamentals, vegetables, fruits, and nuts. Females can breed year-round. Rats leave the attic during the night, to go out and forage for water and food. 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. That is very costly! Do the job ONCE by a wildlife operator, NOT A PEST CONTROL COMPANY, get it done, and you'll be rat-free forever. The common wooden snap traps that are effective for Norway rats are effective for roof rats.
