However, a few differences must be taken into account.
Read my comprehensive guide to rats in the attic.
The Norway rat is generally considered the most important rat in the United States.
The food habits of roof rats outdoors in some respects resemble those of tree squirrels, since they prefer a wide variety of fruit and nuts.
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.
Their burrowing habitats include soil along building foundations, under woodpiles and other piles of debris.
The smallest imperfections during the construction and roofing of a home can lead to a rat infestation.
They are usually a shiny black, but may vary according to diet.
Roof rats are more aerial than Norway rats in their habitat selection and often live in trees or on vine-covered fences.
The muzzle of the roof rat is pointed and the overall appearance of the roof rat is much more streamlined and sleek looking than a Norway rat.
Most information on this subject comes from populations confined in cages or outdoor pens.
When droppings are seen, it is a good practice to remove those droppings and later inspect to see whether new droppings were deposited.
The first and most crucial thing is to inspect the house and find all possible entry holes, and before starting any trapping, carry out repairs and seal the attic so the rats can't get in again.
If you're not experienced in setting them, you may have some problems, so be careful.
Glue boards will catch roof rats, but, like traps, they must be located on beams, rafters, and along other travel routes, making them more difficult to place effectively for roof rats than for Norway rats or house mice.
Their presence is typically detected by the occurrence of their droppings, holes chewed into bags and containers, and chewed nesting materials.
Tracking powders play an important role in structural rodent control.
Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption.
In some agricultural areas, roof rats cause significant losses of tree crops such as citrus and avocados and, to a lesser extent, walnuts, almonds, and other nuts.
They use their tails for balance while traveling along overhead utility lines.
In tropical or semi tropical regions, the season may be nearly year-round.

Some of the first-generation anticoagulants (pindone and warfarin) are available as soluble rodenticides from which water baits can be prepared.
They can often be seen at night running along overhead utility lines or fences.
