They prefer to live in high places, but may live in a variety of environments. Some of their habitats include garbage dumps, sewers and fields. 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. There are holes all over - missing roof vent screens, plumbing stacks, gaps between the roof and fascia board, gaps in the siding, areas where pipes go into the house, etc. Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient. Where legal and not hazardous, shooting of roof rats is effective at dusk as they travel along utility lines. Read this article about how are rats getting in for more info.

Control methods must reflect an understanding of the roof rat’s habitat requirements, reproductive capabilities, food habits, life history, behavior, senses, movements, and the dynamics of its population structure. Their design makes them more rat-specific when used out-of-doors than ordinary snap traps that sometimes take birds. One of the more common techniques for bait use is to place the bait formulation in a tamper proof rodent bait station that protects the bait from accidental exposure to non-target animals or people. They have also been found living in sewer systems, but this is not common. Bubonic plague was a scourge in Europe several times throughout history. Sightings & Sounds - Since rodents are nocturnal and live secretively under normal circumstances, you can be sure that regular daytime rodent sightings indicate a heavy infestation. 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.

Their burrowing habitats include soil along building foundations, under woodpiles and other piles of debris. Within a population, some rats will be easy to control, some difficult. In urban settings, cats and owls prey on roof rats but have little if any effect on well-established populations. Roof rats leave a hind foot track of about 3/4-1 inch. Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species. When practical, remove extraneous vegetation adjacent to the crop that may provide shelter for rats. Roof rats usually require water daily, though their local diet may provide an adequate amount if it is high in water content. These kill traps are often baited with whole nuts and are most useful in trapping rats in trees.
