Once established, they readily breed and thrive within buildings, just as Norway rats do. Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics. Most commercial baits are registered for both species of rats and for house mice, but often they are less acceptable to roof rats than to the other species. When necessary, roof rats will travel considerable distances (100 to 300 feet [30 to 90 m]) for food. Sometimes they transmit disease indirectly, for example, when fleas first bite an infected rat, then a person. Rats have acute hearing and can readily detect noises. In situations where rats are not controlled with conventional products, fumigation of transport vehicles or rat ground burrows may sometimes be needed. Newer rodenticides are much more efficacious and have resulted in the phasing out of these older materials over the last 20 years.
