They have also been found living in sewer systems, but this is not common. Roof rats are susceptible to all of the various anticoagulant rodenticides, but less so than Norway rats. In dense populations, roof rats will establish a social hierarchy, wherein dominant males mate more than subordinate males. Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption. There are two basic methods of rat population reduction: Newer rodenticides are much more efficacious and have resulted in the phasing out of these older materials over the last 20 years. Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control. They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source.

It will get rid of the rats by making it difficult for them to enter the home or structure. Their tails are longer than the rest of their body and are uniformly dark colored. Also, carry out a visual examination of the attic to find the holes they were using to get in and out of the attic. Rats will also drag their tails, leaving a mark between their feet tracks. Adult females are able to reproduce at 3-5 months old, can produce up to five litters each year with about 5-8 young in each litter. Observation Rats are not usually seen during the day unless disturbed from their protective harborage or because of intolerable competition from other rats. In controlling roof rats with rodenticides, a sharp distinction must be made between control in and around buildings and control away from buildings such as in landfills and dumps, along drainage ditches and streams, in sewer water evaporation ponds, and in parks.

Scientists have noted that the roof rat’s long tail is adapted to enhance their ability to climb and functions to assists them in balancing. When rodent-proofing against roof rats, pay close attention to the roof and roof line areas to assure all accesses are closed. Newer rodenticides are much more efficacious and have resulted in the phasing out of these older materials over the last 20 years. Like the Norway rat, the roof rat is implicated in the transmission of a number of diseases to humans, including murine typhus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis (food poisoning), rat-bite fever, and plague. Once you're satisfied that there is no more evidence of rats, and you are not trapping any new rats, you should clean the attic or whatever area they were living in, to remove the contamination and biohazard, and also to eliminate the rat scent, which will attract new rats to try to chew their way into the house in the future. However, they may sometimes also build nests in burrows. They use their tails for balance while traveling along overhead utility lines. 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.
