Norway rats are also polygamous and form colonies of many males and females. Nests and Burrows - check behind shelves, boxes, behind the fridge, anywhere that a rat might like to use as a hiding space. The food habits of roof rats outdoors in some respects resemble those of tree squirrels, since they prefer a wide variety of fruit and nuts. Baiting - This method uses poisons, or rodenticides, to attract and kill rodents. Norway rats can climb, but not as well as roof rats, and are strong swimmers. Usually the peaks in breeding occur in the spring and fall. This means there are no more rats to feed on it because they are dead. The 5 to 8 young in the litter develop rapidly, growing hair within a week.

Some of the first-generation anticoagulants (pindone and warfarin) are available as soluble rodenticides from which water baits can be prepared.

They usually don't leave the attic for very long. Other indicators can include grease marks along surfaces as well as nests. Norway rats are also omnivores and will eat just about anything that is found near where humans discard food. Mating generally peaks in the warmer months of the year, but may occur year round in some areas. I highly recommend snap traps, not live cage traps, certainly not glue boards, and most definitely not poison! Never poison rats, it doesn't solve the problem and it just creates more problems. Roof rats can also nest on the ground if necessary. Roof rats entering homes are generally found in raised or secure enclosures such as walls, cabinets, attics, and false ceilings. In food-storage facilities, the most prominent sign may be smudge marks, the result of oil and dirt rubbing off of their fur as they travel along their aerial routes.
