Some of the more important diseases associated with rats include Rat-Bite Fever and Leptospirosis.
The food habits of roof rats outdoors in some respects resemble those of tree squirrels, since they prefer a wide variety of fruit and nuts.
Sometimes rats get into the kitchen area and feed on stored foods.
Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption.
The common wooden snap traps that are effective for Norway rats are effective for roof rats.
Norway rats are usually active at dusk or during the night and are inactive during daylight hours.
You can often find smudges as an indication of rats, but they can often stay on walls for a long time, so it might be from an old infestation.
Rat control requires an integrated approach that includes non-lethal tools such as careful inspections, upgraded sanitation, and rat-proofing structures.
Unfortunately, the rat’s great adaptability to varying environmental conditions can sometimes make this information elusive.
They may live in the landscaping of one residence and feed at another.
In homes, the attic and garage rafters close to the infestation are the best trapping sites.
The fumigation of structures, truck trailers, or rail cars should only be done by a licensed pest control operator who is trained in fumigation techniques.
Tracking powders are used much less often for roof rats than for Norway rats because roof rats frequent overhead areas within buildings.
Unless the suitability of the rat’s habitat is destroyed by modifying the landscaping, improving sanitation, and rat-proofing, control methods must be unrelenting if they are to be effective.
In a human environment, the rodents will consume almost any food to which they have access.
In some situations, pet food and poorly managed garbage may represent a major food resource.
The nature of damage to outdoor vegetation can often provide clues as to whether it is caused by the roof or Norway rat.
No rat bait ingredient is universally highly acceptable, and regional differences are the rule rather than the exception.
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.

They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source.
In tree crops, some cultural practices can be helpful.
Both roof rats and Norway rats have a well-developed sense of smell and are wary of new things that are introduced into their home range.
Citrus trees, having very low hanging skirts, are more prone to damage because they provide rats with protection.
