Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available. Use a powerful flashlight to spot rats and to determine travel routes for the best locations to set baits and traps. These devices must be viewed with considerable skepticism, because research has not proven them effective. Adults range in weight from about 5-10 ounces. I'm not going to go into detail about harnesses and chicken ladders and such, but be careful! Then, when in the attic, wear a respirator - you don't want to breathe in fiberglass insulation, dust or mold, or the variety of diseases associated with rats. Also, be careful when setting snap traps. The fumigation of structures, truck trailers, or rail cars should only be done by a licensed pest control operator who is trained in fumigation techniques.

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. When droppings are seen, it is a good practice to remove those droppings and later inspect to see whether new droppings were deposited. By this time they have learned what is good to eat by experimenting with potential food items and by imitating their mother.
