While rats can live in the walls, the kitchen, under the house, etc. the most common place for rats to inhabit in a house is the attic. The 5 to 8 young in the litter develop rapidly, growing hair within a week. The nature of damage to outdoor vegetation can often provide clues as to whether it is caused by the roof or Norway rat. Prune to raise the skirts and remove any nests constructed in the trees. Roof rats can be carriers of diseases. Norway rats are also polygamous and form colonies of many males and females. In some situations in which the rats have been eliminated, cats that are good hunters may prevent reinfestation. The older rodenticides, formerly referred to as acute toxicants, such as arsenic, phosphorus, red squill, and ANTU, are either no longer registered or of little importance in rat control.

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. Pesticides must be registered for rat control by federal and/or state authorities and used in accordance with label directions. In general, glue boards are more effective for house mice than for either of the rat species. They have coarse, brown fur, with lighter fur on the undersides. The fumigation of structures, truck trailers, or rail cars should only be done by a licensed pest control operator who is trained in fumigation techniques. Roof rats are also food hoarders, stashing supplies of food such as seeds and nuts. They are often found living on the second floor of a warehouse in which Norway rats occupy the first or basement floor. 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.

These kill traps are often baited with whole nuts and are most useful in trapping rats in trees. To prevent a colony from nesting in your home, make sure that all the windows and vents are screened. Labels will specify where and under what conditions the bait can be used. Roof rats are susceptible to all of the various anticoagulant rodenticides, but less so than Norway rats. The latter two were ineffective for roof rats. Please also read the section on Sanitation, as it is an important consideration in rodent control. All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice.
