Roof rats are susceptible to all of the various anticoagulant rodenticides, but less so than Norway rats.
Some traps should be placed on the floor, but more should be placed above floor level (for example, on top of stacked commodities).
Roof Rats can enter homes and other structures through openings as small as ½ inch.
Roof rats are adept climbers and not surprisingly are apt to build their nests in locations above ground.
The damage control methods used for roof rats are essentially the same as for Norway rats.
The ears and tail are nearly hairless and they are typically 12 to 18 inches long including the tail and weigh 10 to 16 ounces.
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.
In tree crops, some cultural practices can be helpful.
They do very well on feed provided for domestic animals such as swine, dairy cows, and chickens, as well as on dog and cat food.
Rats that are captured should be humanely destroyed and not released elsewhere because of their role in disease transmission, damage potential, and detrimental effect on native wildlife.

Roof rats are prodigious breeders.
This cost will vary a great deal, depending on how many repairs are needed, what part of the country you live in, how many rats are in the attic, how many service trips are necessary, if you need cleanup, etc.
The total cost will probably run between $300 - $500 to remove all the rats and seal the entry holes shut, and it may seem more up-front than a low monthly deal, but you've got to do it right, and then you won't have to worry about rats any more.
Tracking powders play an important role in structural rodent control.
Sightings & Sounds - Since rodents are nocturnal and live secretively under normal circumstances, you can be sure that regular daytime rodent sightings indicate a heavy infestation.

Lives up to one year.
The young are born in a nest about 21 to 23 days after conception.
They prefer to consume fruits (sometimes referred to as the “fruit rat” or “citrus rat”) and nuts, although roof rats are omnivorous and will feed on almost anything available to them.
