In the third week they begin to take solid food. They may eat the bark of smaller citrus branches and girdle them. Also, roof rats are likely to consume insects. Roof rats are not protected by law and can be controlled any time with mechanical or chemical methods. Roof Rats can enter homes and other structures through openings as small as ½ inch. Traps may be nailed to beams or studs and secured to pipes with wires. Roof rats usually require water daily, though their local diet may provide an adequate amount if it is high in water content. Monitor the situation.

Their use for roof rats is limited to control within structures because roof rats rarely produce burrows. The first step in controlling a roof rat infestation is to properly identify the rodents. Adults range in weight from about 5-10 ounces. If you do it wrong the first time, you'll just end up paying more later. Snails are a favorite food, but don’t expect roof rats to eliminate a garden snail problem. For example, only zinc phosphide can be applied on the ground to control rats in sugarcane or macadamia orchards, and the second-generation anticoagulants, cholecalciferol and bromethalin, can be used only in and around buildings, not around crops or away from buildings even in non crop situations. Roof rats are highly adaptable. They have also been found living in sewer systems, but this is not common.

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 tails are longer than the rest of their body and are uniformly dark colored. Leptospirosis - a disease transmitted from contact with rat urine that is serious enough to cause humans to bleed in the lungs. The older rodenticides, formerly referred to as acute toxicants, such as arsenic, phosphorus, red squill, and ANTU, are either no longer registered or of little importance in rat control. 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. Any reputable nuisance wildlife company will have spent money on licensing, liability insurance, and a host of other business expenses. Most of the states in the US interior are free of roof rats, but isolated infestations, probably stemming from infested cargo shipments, can occur.
