Rats rely more on their keen senses of smell, taste, touch, and hearing than on vision. Hundreds may be nesting in a city block-in underground burrows, in sewers, on roofs, inside buildings-with few people in the area realizing it. They may be frightened by sound-producing devices for awhile but they become accustomed to constant and frequently repeated sounds quickly. Roof rats are not accomplished swimmers and are not usually found in sewers. Typically, 3 or more litters are produced annually. This means there are no more rats to feed on it because they are dead.

They are sometimes found living in rice fields or around poultry or other farm buildings as well as in industrial sites where food and shelter are available. 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. Trichinosis may be contracted through eating undercooked meat of animals that have fed on rats. For rats, all openings greater than 1/2" should be sealed. Traps may be nailed to beams or studs and secured to pipes with wires.
