Roof rats can also enter openings in walls, eaves and roof from the branches of trees.
There are two basic methods of rat population reduction:
Once you're satisfied that there is no more evidence of rats, and you are not trapping any new rats, you should clean the attic or whatever area they were living in, to remove the contamination and biohazard, and also to eliminate the rat scent, which will attract new rats to try to chew their way into the house in the future.
There are holes all over - missing roof vent screens, plumbing stacks, gaps between the roof and fascia board, gaps in the siding, areas where pipes go into the house, etc.
Most pest control companies set rat traps, perhaps squirt some flammable expansion foam at very obvious holes, and then put you on a monthly service to remove the rats that are still getting in to your home.
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).
Hundreds may be nesting in a city block-in underground burrows, in sewers, on roofs, inside buildings-with few people in the area realizing it.
Avoid using poison and glue traps, as these are inhumane and cause more problems than they solve.
Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption.
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.
This type of rat control service does not ever solve the problem.

Only after you've sealed the openings shut, you should start trapping and removal.
Roof rats are omnivores and will feed on many types of vegetation such as fruits, grains, seeds and grocery produce.
Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures.
When necessary, roof rats will travel considerable distances (100 to 300 feet [30 to 90 m]) for food.
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.
Many rats may cache or hoard considerable amounts of solid food, which they eat later.
Roof rats can be controlled with the same baits used for Norway rats.
They may not be effective on roof rats, however, because of their usual placement.
Any reputable nuisance wildlife company will have spent money on licensing, liability insurance, and a host of other business expenses.
The total cost will probably run between $300 - $500 to remove all the rats and seal the entry holes shut, and it may seem more up-front than a low monthly deal, but you've got to do it right, and then you won't have to worry about rats any more.
Lights (flashing or continuously on) may repel rats at first, but rats will quickly acclimate to them.
These devices must be viewed with considerable skepticism, because research has not proven them effective.
