However, they may sometimes also build nests in burrows.
Rodent-proofing against roof rats usually requires more time to find entry points than for Norway rats because of their greater climbing ability.
Interior and exterior sanitation to minimize available food and water that supports a rat population.
Rat treatment involves both non-chemical and chemical methods.
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.
While you will not reasonably be able to compensate for every possible rodent entry, you can greatly reduce the ease of entry for rodents (and thereby, reduce the population size) by taking the following measures:
There is often a correlation between rat problems and the keeping of dogs, especially where dogs are fed outdoors.
There are several other types of lethal traps, including the crocodile trap, which has teeth that close on the rat, and even gas chamber traps.

The total cost will probably run between $300 - $500 to remove all the rats and seal the entry holes shut, and it may seem more up-front than a low monthly deal, but you've got to do it right, and then you won't have to worry about rats any more.
Most pest control companies set rat traps, perhaps squirt some flammable expansion foam at very obvious holes, and then put you on a monthly service to remove the rats that are still getting in to your home.
Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways.
It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing.
At least in some parts of the United States and elsewhere in the world, the methods used to control rats have reduced Norway rat populations but have permitted roof rats to become more prominent, apparently because they are more difficult to control.
A mouse's tracks will be much shorter.
Since none of these are anticoagulants, all can be used to control anticoagulant resistant populations of roof rats.
Trichinosis may be contracted through eating undercooked meat of animals that have fed on rats.
Adult females are able to reproduce at 3-5 months old, can produce up to five litters each year with about 5-8 young in each litter.
Norway rats and the roof rats are very different in their habits, habitats and behavior, so the first requirement of a rat treatment program is to correctly identify the rat and develop a treatment plan that works for that species.
