Adult roof rats usually live about one year. Then the rats should be trapped and removed. ALWAYS USE RESPIRATORY PROTECTION WHEN REMOVING RODENT DROPPINGS. If you've sealed the house correctly, then you shouldn't trap any new rats after just the first three days. The fumigation of structures, truck trailers, or rail cars should only be done by a licensed pest control operator who is trained in fumigation techniques. Rodents sniff out the bait and return to feed upon it continuously until the poison kills them. Place traps where they will intercept rats on their way to food, such as on overhead beams, pipes, ledges, or sills frequently used as travel routes (Fig. Roof rats are not protected by law and can be controlled any time with mechanical or chemical methods.

When droppings are seen, it is a good practice to remove those droppings and later inspect to see whether new droppings were deposited. When necessary, roof rats will travel considerable distances (100 to 300 feet [30 to 90 m]) for food. Tracking powders are used much less often for roof rats than for Norway rats because roof rats frequent overhead areas within buildings. As mentioned above, roof rats prefer above ground nesting locations in shrubs, trees, and dense vegetation. Statisticians estimate that rats destroy 20 percent of the world's food supply every year by feeding, and indirectly through contamination. 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. In food-processing and storage facilities, they will feed on nearly all food items, though their food preferences may differ from those of Norway rats. Roof rat droppings are 12 to 13 mm with pointed ends, whereas Norway rat droppings are 18 to 20 mm and capsule shaped.

However, they may sometimes also build nests in burrows. Roof rats are polygamous and group themselves into colonies of multiple males and females. Snap traps are actually the very best way to do it. These techniques include improving sanitation for the affected location, eliminating hiding places, exclusion and may also include lethal methods such as traps and rodenticides. Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions. The advantages of trapping when compared to baiting include: 1) Trapping does not require the use of harmful poisons; 2) Trapping allows the user to know whether the rat was killed, whereas with baiting the rat will wander off and die somewhere else; 3) Trapping eliminates odor problems by allowing you to dispose of the rat carcass. From causing plague epidemics (the "Black Death" of Europe) to rat-bite fever, whether feeding on stored grain or gnawing electric wires, rats are enemies of humankind. The first step in controlling a roof rat infestation is to properly identify the rodents.
