They have also been found living in sewer systems, but this is not common. Most commercial baits are registered for both species of rats and for house mice, but often they are less acceptable to roof rats than to the other species. You can often find smudges as an indication of rats, but they can often stay on walls for a long time, so it might be from an old infestation. Wire-mesh, live traps (Tomahawk®, Havahart®) are available for trapping rats. They can transmit these diseases through physical contact, bites, by contamination or by fleas that are feeding on the rodent. Roof rats can also enter openings in walls, eaves and roof from the branches of trees. 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). Also, Norway rats may prey upon fish, poultry, mice, birds, small reptiles and amphibians.

In dense populations, roof rats will establish a social hierarchy, wherein dominant males mate more than subordinate males. Roof rats will often move into sugarcane and citrus groves. Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces. Only after you've sealed the openings shut, you should start trapping and removal. However, the complexity in mode of action of newer materials makes these classifications outdated. One of the more common techniques for bait use is to place the bait formulation in a tamper proof rodent bait station that protects the bait from accidental exposure to non-target animals or people. Rats usually begin searching for food shortly after sunset. Statisticians estimate that rats destroy 20 percent of the world's food supply every year by feeding, and indirectly through contamination.
