In food-processing and food-storage facilities, roof rats do about the same type of damage as Norway rats, and damage is visually hard to differentiate. 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. Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption. Some traps should be placed on the floor, but more should be placed above floor level (for example, on top of stacked commodities). Having completed the repairs to wires, and possibly vacuumed feces or replaced insulation (not usually necessary) fumigate the attic to kill any remaining parasites or spores from the rats. Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed. No rat bait ingredient is universally highly acceptable, and regional differences are the rule rather than the exception. Rats can also transmit rat bite fever through bacteria in their mouth.

Always be sure that fresh bait is available continuously until rats stop feeding. Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways. Attach rat guards to overhead utility wires and maintain them regularly. Some of the more important diseases associated with rats include Rat-Bite Fever and Leptospirosis. Their use for roof rats is limited to control within structures because roof rats rarely produce burrows. For professional rat control services from the rat control officers at rat removal experts, please contact your local rat removal experts office by calling. Where legal and not hazardous, shooting of roof rats is effective at dusk as they travel along utility lines. Also, be careful when setting snap traps.

Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences. In dense populations, roof rats will establish a social hierarchy, wherein dominant males mate more than subordinate males. They can often be seen at night running along overhead utility lines or fences. Sounds in the attic are often the first indication of the presence of roof rats in a residence. Dense shrubbery, vine-covered trees and fences, and vine ground cover make ideal harborage for roof rats. Where legal and not hazardous, shooting of roof rats is effective at dusk as they travel along utility lines. Breeding seasons vary in different areas. It is unlikely, however, they will be any more effective for roof rats than for Norway rats.
