When necessary, roof rats will travel considerable distances (100 to 300 feet [30 to 90 m]) for food. Adults range in weight from about 5-10 ounces. High-frequency sound-producing devices are advertised for frightening rats, but almost no research exists on their effects specifically on roof rats. 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. If roof rats are seen exposed, it often indicates their hiding spaces are all filled by other rats or that they have been disturbed, such as by construction. Lights (flashing or continuously on) may repel rats at first, but rats will quickly acclimate to them. They prefer to consume fruits (sometimes referred to as the “fruit rat” or “citrus rat”) and nuts, although roof rats are omnivorous and will feed on almost anything available to them. Neophobia is more pronounced in roof rats than in Norway rats.
