As their name suggests, roof rats may be found in elevated areas such as trees, rafters, attics and roofs.

Female adults will produce about seven litters per year and will mate again about 18 hours after giving birth to her litter of about eight pups.
The number of litters depends on the area and varies with nearness to the limit of their climatic range, availability of nutritious food, density of the local rat population, and the age of the rat.
Rat densities (numbers of rats in a given area) are determined primarily by the suitability of the habitat—the amount of available nutritional and palatable food and nearby protective cover (shelter or harborage).

Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures.
Their use for roof rats is limited to control within structures because roof rats rarely produce burrows.
Therefore, the body oils on a rat’s fur gets deposited on corners and edges of walls and around holes and gaps they use to enter into a wall void.
Place traps where they will intercept rats on their way to food, such as on overhead beams, pipes, ledges, or sills frequently used as travel routes (Fig.

Roof rats are not protected by law and can be controlled any time with mechanical or chemical methods.
