Rats rely more on their keen senses of smell, taste, touch, and hearing than on vision.
In food-storage facilities, the most prominent sign may be smudge marks, the result of oil and dirt rubbing off of their fur as they travel along their aerial routes.
Gnawing holes - Gnawing holes from Roof rats are about 2 inches or more in diameter and will have rough edges.
Pocket gopher box-type traps (such as the DK-2 Gopher Getter) can be modified to catch rats by reversing the action of the trigger.
In some situations, pet food and poorly managed garbage may represent a major food resource.
Within a year, one female may be responsible for up to 40 new rodents.

Make sure that all doors, windows and screens fit tightly in their frames and repair those that do not.
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.
You can't ignore wildlife problems, because of the damage and health risks that rats cause.
