Young rats generally cannot be trapped until about 1 month old.
Adult females are able to reproduce at 3-5 months old, can produce up to five litters each year with about 5-8 young in each litter.
Hundreds may be nesting in a city block-in underground burrows, in sewers, on roofs, inside buildings-with few people in the area realizing it.
A new second-generation anticoagulant, difethialone, is presently being developed and EPA registration is anticipated in the near future.
Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off of the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist.
It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing.
A few instances of first-generation anticoagulant resistance have been reported in roof rats; although not common, it may be underestimated because so few resistance studies have been conducted on this species.
Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available.
Always be sure that fresh bait is available continuously until rats stop feeding.
Norway rats build their nests in underground burrows where they mate, rear their young, store food and seek refuge from predators.
Cage trapping is often considered to be the most humane way of dealing with an animal problem, and certainly when it comes to larger animals it is fair to say that it can be effective.
The commercially available, expanded plastic treadle traps, such as the Victor Professional Rat Trap, are particularly effective if properly located in well-traveled paths.
Then the rats should be trapped and removed.

Observation Rats are not usually seen during the day unless disturbed from their protective harborage or because of intolerable competition from other rats.
While rats can live in the walls, the kitchen, under the house, etc. the most common place for rats to inhabit in a house is the attic.
Rats can also transmit rat bite fever through bacteria in their mouth.
A mouse's tracks will be much shorter.
Once you know the location of the rats, you can set traps or place bait.
Once you're satisfied that there is no more evidence of rats, and you are not trapping any new rats, you should clean the attic or whatever area they were living in, to remove the contamination and biohazard, and also to eliminate the rat scent, which will attract new rats to try to chew their way into the house in the future.
Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide.
