The best rat trap: Believe it or not, the tried-and-true, low-tech mouse trap (snap trap) – a simple piece of wood with a spring-loaded bar – is the most effective and humane way to kill a rat. Snap traps kill rats instantly, they are inexpensive and reusable, and they can fit in small spaces. Do not worry about the bait – you can use anything from peanut butter to fruit to – yes, cheese.

Grease marks are produced as the rodent travels along an edge, and the oils in their fur are deposited. 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. While you will not reasonably be able to compensate for every possible rodent entry, you can greatly reduce the ease of entry for rodents (and thereby, reduce the population size) by taking the following measures: Roof rats can be controlled with the same baits used for Norway rats. They are usually a shiny black, but may vary according to diet. Rats (especially Roof rats) are wary of new objects, new foods or changed in environment. Visual sightings of live or dead rodents indicate rodent activity. Use proper garbage and refuse disposal containers and implement exterior sanitation programs.

Rats may carry viruses such as Hantavirus and salmonella, and although they can also be a carrier of bubonic plague, that disease is not indigenous in the USA. Trap at left is modified by fastening a piece of cardboard to expand its trigger size (traps with expanded treadles can also be purchased from several manufacturers). They are constantly exploring surroundings and notice changes and are suspicious by nature. Products sold as general animal repellents, based on taste and/or odor, are sometimes advertised to repel animals, including rats, from garbage bags. 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). For example, only zinc phosphide can be applied on the ground to control rats in sugarcane or macadamia orchards, and the second-generation anticoagulants, cholecalciferol and bromethalin, can be used only in and around buildings, not around crops or away from buildings even in non crop situations. Grease marks are produced as the rodent travels along an edge, and the oils in their fur are deposited. Roof rats are more aerial than Norway rats in their habitat selection and often live in trees or on vine-covered fences.

In agricultural settings, weasels, foxes, coyotes, and other predators prey on roof rats, but their take is inconsequential as a population control factor. Their keen sense of hearing also aids in their ability to detect and escape danger. Roof Rats are commonly called black rats and are smaller than Norway rats. 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. The older rodenticides, formerly referred to as acute toxicants, such as arsenic, phosphorus, red squill, and ANTU, are either no longer registered or of little importance in rat control. Caution should be taken to avoid trapping nontarget species such as tree squirrels. Exclusion is an important rodent control technique. Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed.
