However, they may sometimes also build nests in burrows.
Some of the more important non-chemical methods are:
For best results, try several baits to find out which one rats consume most.

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.
No chemical repellents are specifically registered for rat control.
Other indicators can include grease marks along surfaces as well as nests.
They need not be baited.

For example, only zinc phosphide can be applied on the ground to control rats in sugarcane or macadamia orchards, and the second-generation anticoagulants, cholecalciferol and bromethalin, can be used only in and around buildings, not around crops or away from buildings even in non crop situations.
When rodent-proofing against roof rats, pay close attention to the roof and roof line areas to assure all accesses are closed.
