No chemical repellents are specifically registered for rat control. It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing. Norway rats build their nests in underground burrows where they mate, rear their young, store food and seek refuge from predators. Walk only on the wooden beams in the attic, never the sheet rock, or you could fall through the ceiling! Be careful, an attic is a hazardous place, where it can be easy to fall, or poke a roofing nail in your head. The advantages of trapping when compared to baiting include: 1) Trapping does not require the use of harmful poisons; 2) Trapping allows the user to know whether the rat was killed, whereas with baiting the rat will wander off and die somewhere else; 3) Trapping eliminates odor problems by allowing you to dispose of the rat carcass. The efficacy of such products for rats is generally lacking. Grease marks are produced as the rodent travels along an edge, and the oils in their fur are deposited. Roof rats have a strong tendency to avoid new objects in their environment and this neophobia can influence control efforts, for it may take several days before they will approach a bait station or trap.

The most commonly found rat pest in United States is the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus). The social behavior of free-living roof rats is very difficult to study and, as a result, has received less attention than that of Norway rats. Rats may carry viruses such as Hantavirus and salmonella, and although they can also be a carrier of bubonic plague, that disease is not indigenous in the USA. Tracking powders play an important role in structural rodent control. Roof rats can be controlled with the same baits used for Norway rats. The muzzle of the roof rat is pointed and the overall appearance of the roof rat is much more streamlined and sleek looking than a Norway rat. The 5 to 8 young in the litter develop rapidly, growing hair within a week. The young are born in a nest about 21 to 23 days after conception.

Once you know the location of the rats, you can set traps or place bait. Most pest control companies set rat traps, perhaps squirt some flammable expansion foam at very obvious holes, and then put you on a monthly service to remove the rats that are still getting in to your home. 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. For further information see Norway Rats. Burrows Or Nests Holes in the ground around foundations, plus nests in attics or trees are evidence of a rat problem. 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. Walk only on the wooden beams in the attic, never the sheet rock, or you could fall through the ceiling! Be careful, an attic is a hazardous place, where it can be easy to fall, or poke a roofing nail in your head. Certain first-generation anticoagulants are registered as tracking powders for roof rat control; however, none of the second generation materials are so registered.
