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.
Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces.
It is unlikely, however, they will be any more effective for roof rats than for Norway rats.

In residences where rats may be living in the attic and feeding outdoors, the damage may be restricted to tearing up insulation for nesting or gnawing electrical wiring.
Proper ladder safety is a must, as is roof safety.
