Some of the more important diseases associated with rats include Rat-Bite Fever and Leptospirosis. Droppings - Roof Rat droppings are 1/4 to 1/2 inch in length, capsule shaped, with blunt ends. Other indicators can include grease marks along surfaces as well as nests. Roof rats can be carriers of diseases. If you've sealed the house correctly, then you shouldn't trap any new rats after just the first three days. It actually makes it worse, because the rats are multiplying, dying, defecating, destroying insulation, chewing wires and chewing air ducts, while you wait for your next service. In food-processing and storage facilities, they will feed on nearly all food items, though their food preferences may differ from those of Norway rats. Roof rats can also nest on the ground if necessary.

Baiting - This method uses poisons, or rodenticides, to attract and kill rodents. Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed. Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures. They can successfully mate throughout the year, meaning that if you have rats in the attic, then there is a good possibility that they will have a nest of baby rats that you will need to deal with as well. Rat Bite Fever - from the saliva of a rat, it comes from rats biting humans. They can successfully mate throughout the year, meaning that if you have rats in the attic, then there is a good possibility that they will have a nest of baby rats that you will need to deal with as well. Roof rats are adept climbers and not surprisingly are apt to build their nests in locations above ground. 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.
