If roof rats are seen exposed, it often indicates their hiding spaces are all filled by other rats or that they have been disturbed, such as by construction.
Nests and Burrows - check behind shelves, boxes, behind the fridge, anywhere that a rat might like to use as a hiding space.
The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors.
The traditional style snap traps are still among the best ways of dealing with a rat problem, and these are simple to set and bait, and you should look to place them in areas where the rats are active, so where you can see feces and smudges on the walls.
Successful long-term rat control is not simple.
In general, glue boards are more effective for house mice than for either of the rat species.
Within a year, one female may be responsible for up to 40 new rodents.

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.
They are particularly useful for house mouse control in situations where other methods seem less appropriate.
Since roof rats rarely dig burrows, burrow fumigants are of limited use; however, if they have constructed burrows, then fumigants that are effective on Norway rats, such as aluminum phosphide and gas cartridges, will be effective on roof rats.
It will get rid of the rats by making it difficult for them to enter the home or structure.
Another important treatment component is customer education so the customer understands the concepts of the proposed control program.
The preferred habitat of Norway rats is just about anywhere people reside.
All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice.
Trapping is an effective alternative to pesticides and recommended in some situations.
