Tracking powders are used much less often for roof rats than for Norway rats because roof rats frequent overhead areas within buildings. For best results, try several baits to find out which one rats consume most. Since none of these are anticoagulants, all can be used to control anticoagulant resistant populations of roof rats. 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. In some situations in which the rats have been eliminated, cats that are good hunters may prevent reinfestation. Knowledge is limited on interspecific competition between the different genera and species of rats. Roof rats are highly adaptable. Norway rats and the roof rats are very different in their habits, habitats and behavior, so the first requirement of a rat treatment program is to correctly identify the rat and develop a treatment plan that works for that species.

Since roof rats rarely dig burrows, burrow fumigants are of limited use; however, if they have constructed burrows, then fumigants that are effective on Norway rats, such as aluminum phosphide and gas cartridges, will be effective on roof rats. Also, be careful when setting snap traps. Bubonic Plague - the famous disease that nearly wiped out humanity during the Middle Ages was eventually traced back to parasites like fleas carried by rats. They may eat vegetation, but prefer to meat or meat-related wastes. Other vegetable, melon, berry, and fruit crops occasionally suffer relatively minor damage when adjacent to infested habitat such as riparian vegetation. They may not be effective on roof rats, however, because of their usual placement. In situations where rats are not controlled with conventional products, fumigation of transport vehicles or rat ground burrows may sometimes be needed. Always be sure that fresh bait is available continuously until rats stop feeding.
