Roof Rats can enter homes and other structures through openings as small as ½ inch.
In urban settings, cats and owls prey on roof rats but have little if any effect on well-established populations.
They are considered to be color-blind, responding only to the degree of lightness and darkness of color.
You can often find smudges as an indication of rats, but they can often stay on walls for a long time, so it might be from an old infestation.
If rats are seen during the day that usually means a very large rodent population is nearby.
Roof rats are omnivores and will feed on many types of vegetation such as fruits, grains, seeds and grocery produce.
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.
Products sold as general animal repellents, based on taste and/or odor, are sometimes advertised to repel animals, including rats, from garbage bags.

Some of the first-generation anticoagulants (pindone and warfarin) are available as soluble rodenticides from which water baits can be prepared.
For the characteristics of the various anticoagulant rodenticides see Norway Rats.

The commercially available, expanded plastic treadle traps, such as the Victor Professional Rat Trap, are particularly effective if properly located in well-traveled paths.
Gnawing holes - Gnawing holes from Roof rats are about 2 inches or more in diameter and will have rough edges.
The only way to solve a rat or mouse problem is to find every last point of entry into the house, and seal it shut.
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.
The latter two were ineffective for roof rats.
Also, roof rats are likely to consume insects.
They are very strong, and can injure your fingers.
A rat does not want to be exposed to danger outside for very long! If you think you can just seal shut the entry holes into the house during the daylight when they are outside, that is incorrect.
Droppings Rats produce a lot of feces and the presence of their fecal droppings is a surefire way to spot an infestation.
