However, rats are a nuisance animal wherever you choose to release them, and they also have a particularly low rate of survival once they have been relocated, so in most cases using humane lethal traps will be the best way to deal with the infestation.
If rats are seen during the day that usually means a very large rodent population is nearby.
Roof rats are omnivores and will feed on many types of vegetation such as fruits, grains, seeds and grocery produce.
They are often found living on the second floor of a warehouse in which Norway rats occupy the first or basement floor.
The ears and tail are nearly hairless and they are typically 12 to 18 inches long including the tail and weigh 10 to 16 ounces.
When everyone is asleep and the house is quiet, the rats can be heard scurrying about.
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.
They do very well on feed provided for domestic animals such as swine, dairy cows, and chickens, as well as on dog and cat food.
There is less tendency to see droppings, urine, or tracks on the floor in buildings because rats may live overhead between floors, above false ceilings, or in utility spaces, and venture down to feed or obtain food.
No, they sleep in the attic all day.
Please also read the section on Sanitation, as it is an important consideration in rodent control.

Look for fresh droppings.
While you will not reasonably be able to compensate for every possible rodent entry, you can greatly reduce the ease of entry for rodents (and thereby, reduce the population size) by taking the following measures:
The fumigation of structures, truck trailers, or rail cars should only be done by a licensed pest control operator who is trained in fumigation techniques.
Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient.
Some of the more important non-chemical methods are:
Some of their habitats include garbage dumps, sewers and fields.
The commercially available, expanded plastic treadle traps, such as the Victor Professional Rat Trap, are particularly effective if properly located in well-traveled paths.
Keeping vegetation thinned out or removed from the perimeter of buildings.
In landscaped yards they often live in overgrown shrubbery or vines, feeding on ornamentals, vegetables, fruits, and nuts.
Adults range in weight from about 5-10 ounces.
Their presence is typically detected by the occurrence of their droppings, holes chewed into bags and containers, and chewed nesting materials.
Distinctions must be made as to which rodenticide (registered product) to use, the method of application or placement, and the amount of bait to apply.
