Most of the states in the US interior are free of roof rats, but isolated infestations, probably stemming from infested cargo shipments, can occur.
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.
Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource.
They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source.

Rats tend to segregate themselves socially in both space and time.
A new second-generation anticoagulant, difethialone, is presently being developed and EPA registration is anticipated in the near future.
