These rodents have been known to consume tree bark, meat and grain. Prune to raise the skirts and remove any nests constructed in the trees. They can transmit these diseases through physical contact, bites, by contamination or by fleas that are feeding on the rodent. Norway rats are a common mammalian pest of rice, but sometimes roof rats also feed on newly planted seed or the seedling as it emerges. They are constantly exploring surroundings and notice changes and are suspicious by nature. Roof rats are also food hoarders, stashing supplies of food such as seeds and nuts. They can often be seen at night running along overhead utility lines or fences. The first step in controlling a roof rat infestation is to properly identify the rodents.

Bubonic Plague - the famous disease that nearly wiped out humanity during the Middle Ages was eventually traced back to parasites like fleas carried by rats. Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways. The reproductive potential of one female Norway rat is about 50-60 young per year. Both roof rats and Norway rats have a well-developed sense of smell and are wary of new things that are introduced into their home range. Norway rats and the roof rats are very different in their habits, habitats and behavior, so the first requirement of a rat treatment program is to correctly identify the rat and develop a treatment plan that works for that species. Liquid baits may be an effective alternative in situations where normal baits are not readily accepted, especially where water is scarce or where rats must travel some distance to reach water. Rats can squeeze into a hole the size of a quarter. A rat does not want to be exposed to danger outside for very long! If you think you can just seal shut the entry holes into the house during the daylight when they are outside, that is incorrect.
