Some of the more important non-chemical methods are:
Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences.
Severe pruning and/or removal of certain ornamentals are often required to obtain a degree of lasting rat control.
At present there are three rodenticides—zinc phosphide, cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), and bromethalin—registered and available for roof rat control.
They can transmit these diseases through physical contact, bites, by contamination or by fleas that are feeding on the rodent.
The food habits of roof rats outdoors in some respects resemble those of tree squirrels, since they prefer a wide variety of fruit and nuts.
In controlling roof rats with rodenticides, a sharp distinction must be made between control in and around buildings and control away from buildings such as in landfills and dumps, along drainage ditches and streams, in sewer water evaporation ponds, and in parks.
Fur is smooth.

Once established, they readily breed and thrive within buildings, just as Norway rats do.
Various sounds that indicate rodent activity include gnawing, scratching, and digging noises.
Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available.
Rickettsial Diseases - various forms of Typhus fall into this category and can also be carried by rat-borne parasites.
Having completed the repairs to wires, and possibly vacuumed feces or replaced insulation (not usually necessary) fumigate the attic to kill any remaining parasites or spores from the rats.
Check the traps periodically, remove any dead trapped rats, and reset the traps.
Roof rats can also enter openings in walls, eaves and roof from the branches of trees.
Females can breed year-round.
That is not the case! They sleep in your attic all day, and then at dusk they wake up, and start moving around, and that's why you hear them after dark.
Some type of clean food can be used to entice the rats to the boxes, or the tracking powders can be used in conjunction with an anticoagulant bait, with both placed in the same station.
Generally, Roof rats stay within 100 miles inland.
When droppings are seen, it is a good practice to remove those droppings and later inspect to see whether new droppings were deposited.
Roof rats are susceptible to all of the various anticoagulant rodenticides, but less so than Norway rats.
You might find holes in walls and wood.
Timing a sealup for rats is impossible, because they leave for short periods, and they don't all leave at the same time of night.
