In some agricultural areas, roof rats cause significant losses of tree crops such as citrus and avocados and, to a lesser extent, walnuts, almonds, and other nuts. Also, Norway rats may prey upon fish, poultry, mice, birds, small reptiles and amphibians. Killing the rats may not be the best answer (it is not as simple as just exterminating them all) . Rat control using chemical products involves baits designed to kill rats. Check the traps periodically, remove any dead trapped rats, and reset the traps.

From causing plague epidemics (the "Black Death" of Europe) to rat-bite fever, whether feeding on stored grain or gnawing electric wires, rats are enemies of humankind. Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource. Parks with natural and artificial ponds, or reservoirs may also be infested. Burrows Or Nests Holes in the ground around foundations, plus nests in attics or trees are evidence of a rat problem.
