The first step in controlling a roof rat infestation is to properly identify the rodents. Pocket gopher box-type traps (such as the DK-2 Gopher Getter) can be modified to catch rats by reversing the action of the trigger. Within a rat colony, they may be a few rats that are extra cautious and manage to avoid traps or eating rodent baits. Roof rats have a strong tendency to avoid new objects in their environment and this neophobia can influence control efforts, for it may take several days before they will approach a bait station or trap. Other indicators can include grease marks along surfaces as well as nests. Rats (especially Roof rats) are wary of new objects, new foods or changed in environment. In food-processing and food-storage facilities, roof rats do about the same type of damage as Norway rats, and damage is visually hard to differentiate. Once you're satisfied that there is no more evidence of rats, and you are not trapping any new rats, you should clean the attic or whatever area they were living in, to remove the contamination and biohazard, and also to eliminate the rat scent, which will attract new rats to try to chew their way into the house in the future.

It is difficult to find suitable places to lay the tracking powder that will not create a potential problem of contaminating food or materials below the placement sites. When practical, remove extraneous vegetation adjacent to the crop that may provide shelter for rats. Most commercial baits are registered for both species of rats and for house mice, but often they are less acceptable to roof rats than to the other species. Tracking powders are used much less often for roof rats than for Norway rats because roof rats frequent overhead areas within buildings.
