Bubonic plague was a scourge in Europe several times throughout history. Rats usually begin searching for food shortly after sunset. Roof rats leave a hind foot track of about 3/4-1 inch. 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. They need not be baited. They can transmit these diseases through physical contact, bites, by contamination or by fleas that are feeding on the rodent. Killing the rats may not be the best answer (it is not as simple as just exterminating them all) . Because roof rats are fast and agile, they are not easy prey for mammalian or avian predators.

In dense populations, roof rats will establish a social hierarchy, wherein dominant males mate more than subordinate males. Various sounds that indicate rodent activity include gnawing, scratching, and digging noises. The latter two were ineffective for roof rats.
