Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off of the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist.
Mating generally peaks in the warmer months of the year, but may occur year round in some areas.
Also, carry out a visual examination of the attic to find the holes they were using to get in and out of the attic.
Droppings are another good indicator of roof rat activity.
To prevent a colony from nesting in your home, make sure that all the windows and vents are screened.
Care must be exercised to ensure that baits are properly placed and the use instructions on the product’s label are strictly followed.

In controlling roof rats with rodenticides, a sharp distinction must be made between control in and around buildings and control away from buildings such as in landfills and dumps, along drainage ditches and streams, in sewer water evaporation ponds, and in parks.
They have also been found living in sewer systems, but this is not common.
Emphasis should be placed on the removal of as much harborage as is practical.
They approach new food or object with caution.
As their name suggests, roof rats may be found in elevated areas such as trees, rafters, attics and roofs.

Make sure that all doors, windows and screens fit tightly in their frames and repair those that do not.
Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed.
In dense populations, roof rats will establish a social hierarchy, wherein dominant males mate more than subordinate males.
That is not the case! They sleep in your attic all day, and then at dusk they wake up, and start moving around, and that's why you hear them after dark.
