They may also enter through ill-fitted doors, windows, or screens, and air vents that are not in sound or working order. When necessary, roof rats will travel considerable distances (100 to 300 feet [30 to 90 m]) for food. Walk only on the wooden beams in the attic, never the sheet rock, or you could fall through the ceiling! Be careful, an attic is a hazardous place, where it can be easy to fall, or poke a roofing nail in your head. Fur is smooth. Roof rats are not protected by law and can be controlled any time with mechanical or chemical methods. Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything. Norway rats can climb, but not as well as roof rats, and are strong swimmers. Severe pruning and/or removal of certain ornamentals are often required to obtain a degree of lasting rat control.

They are usually a shiny black, but may vary according to diet. They may not be effective on roof rats, however, because of their usual placement. Rats rely more on their keen senses of smell, taste, touch, and hearing than on vision. In urban settings, cats and owls prey on roof rats but have little if any effect on well-established populations. The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors. Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits.

Read more about where rats live. These kill traps are often baited with whole nuts and are most useful in trapping rats in trees. In homes, the attic and garage rafters close to the infestation are the best trapping sites. The Norway rat is also called brown rat, house rat, sewer rat, and wharf rat. The young are able to breed before they are four months old.
