When rodent-proofing against roof rats, pay close attention to the roof and roof line areas to assure all accesses are closed.
Roof rats will often move into sugarcane and citrus groves.
Rats are responsible for the spread of many diseases.
Roof Rats are commonly called black rats and are smaller than Norway rats.
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.
Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces.
Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome is transferred via inhalation of rodent urine, droppings or saliva.
They move faster than Norway rats and are very agile climbers, which enables them to quickly escape predators.
Most information on this subject comes from populations confined in cages or outdoor pens.
Where label instructions permit, small blocks can be placed or fastened on rafters, ledges, or even attached to tree limbs, where they are readily accessible to the arboreal rats.
Listen for rat evidence, like their scurrying and running noises in the attic, and scratching in the walls.
Within a rat colony, they may be a few rats that are extra cautious and manage to avoid traps or eating rodent baits.
The young may continue to nurse until 4 or 5 weeks old.
Seal any openings larger than ¼ inch with caulk, wood, mesh, or other appropriate materials.
Newer rodenticides are much more efficacious and have resulted in the phasing out of these older materials over the last 20 years.
The damage control methods used for roof rats are essentially the same as for Norway rats.
While rats can live in the walls, the kitchen, under the house, etc. the most common place for rats to inhabit in a house is the attic.
Touch is an important sense in rats.
The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors.

In food-processing and storage facilities, they will feed on nearly all food items, though their food preferences may differ from those of Norway rats.
Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource.
Sometimes they transmit disease indirectly, for example, when fleas first bite an infected rat, then a person.
Snap traps are actually the very best way to do it.
