Norway rats are usually active at dusk or during the night and are inactive during daylight hours.
A rat does not want to be exposed to danger outside for very long! If you think you can just seal shut the entry holes into the house during the daylight when they are outside, that is incorrect.
The common wooden snap traps that are effective for Norway rats are effective for roof rats.
Only construction grade materials are used.
Roof rats are polygamous and group themselves into colonies of multiple males and females.

However, the complexity in mode of action of newer materials makes these classifications outdated.
Rodents sniff out the bait and return to feed upon it continuously until the poison kills them.
Use proper garbage and refuse disposal containers and implement exterior sanitation programs.
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 have hairless, scaly tails that are longer than their heads and bodies.
You can't ignore wildlife problems, because of the damage and health risks that rats cause.

While you will not reasonably be able to compensate for every possible rodent entry, you can greatly reduce the ease of entry for rodents (and thereby, reduce the population size) by taking the following measures:
Okay, the first and most important thing you have to do is find out how rats are getting into the building.
I'm not going to go into detail about harnesses and chicken ladders and such, but be careful! Then, when in the attic, wear a respirator - you don't want to breathe in fiberglass insulation, dust or mold, or the variety of diseases associated with rats.
Attach rat guards to overhead utility wires and maintain them regularly.
Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed.
They approach new food or object with caution.
While you are preventing future rat population growth through inspection, sanitation, and exclusion, you will also want to begin working towards elimination of the population that is already present through trapping and baiting.
Their design makes them more rat-specific when used out-of-doors than ordinary snap traps that sometimes take birds.

All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice.
