Rats have been plaguing humans for centuries, famous for their continuously-growing sharp teeth, their desire for human food, their tendency to get into homes and buildings and create nests and their health problems - rats are the essence of a pest. At present there are three rodenticides—zinc phosphide, cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), and bromethalin—registered and available for roof rat control. The young may continue to nurse until 4 or 5 weeks old. These diseases often share similar symptoms, and medical professionals must perform the proper diagnoses. Successful long-term rat control is not simple. The young are born in a nest about 21 to 23 days after conception. Sounds Noises produced by scurrying rats, scratching in the walls or other noises from nest building may tip off the property owner to a rat problem. The more dominant individuals occupy the better habitats and feed whenever they like, whereas the less fortunate individuals may have to occupy marginal habitat and feed when the more dominant rats are not present.

Norway rats build their nests in underground burrows where they mate, rear their young, store food and seek refuge from predators. Hundreds may be nesting in a city block-in underground burrows, in sewers, on roofs, inside buildings-with few people in the area realizing it. Overhead trap sets are particularly useful for roof rats. Once you know the location of the rats, you can set traps or place bait. Visual sightings of live or dead rodents indicate rodent activity. Most pest control companies set rat traps, perhaps squirt some flammable expansion foam at very obvious holes, and then put you on a monthly service to remove the rats that are still getting in to your home. When droppings are seen, it is a good practice to remove those droppings and later inspect to see whether new droppings were deposited. Inspection is an important first step in getting rid of rats.

The nature of damage to outdoor vegetation can often provide clues as to whether it is caused by the roof or Norway rat. They can successfully mate throughout the year, meaning that if you have rats in the attic, then there is a good possibility that they will have a nest of baby rats that you will need to deal with as well. Trim all tree branches to further prevent entry. The key is to control rat populations, not individual rats. Such caches may be found in a dismantled wood pile, attic, or behind boxes in a garage. Proper ladder safety is a must, as is roof safety. Rats can squeeze into a hole the size of a quarter. Severe pruning and/or removal of certain ornamentals are often required to obtain a degree of lasting rat control.
