The wildlife operator will seal shut all the rat entry points, and that's the ONLY way to solve a rat problem forever. There is often a correlation between rat problems and the keeping of dogs, especially where dogs are fed outdoors. Most of the states in the US interior are free of roof rats, but isolated infestations, probably stemming from infested cargo shipments, can occur. Black or brown, can be over 40 cm long, with a long tail, large ears and eyes, and a pointed nose. Rats may live up to three years, but a lifespan of one and a half years is more common.

Roof rats are likely to found in coastal, near-coastal areas and port cities. In landscaped yards they often live in overgrown shrubbery or vines, feeding on ornamentals, vegetables, fruits, and nuts. The great adaptability of rats to human-created environments and the high fertility rate of rats make for quick recuperation of their populations. Trap at left is modified by fastening a piece of cardboard to expand its trigger size (traps with expanded treadles can also be purchased from several manufacturers). If living under a refrigerator or freezer, they may disable the unit by gnawing the electrical wires. Roof rat droppings are 12 to 13 mm with pointed ends, whereas Norway rat droppings are 18 to 20 mm and capsule shaped. Rats rely more on their keen senses of smell, taste, touch, and hearing than on vision. In homes, the attic and garage rafters close to the infestation are the best trapping sites.

Rats contaminating food or food preparation surfaces can transmit food poisoning. In agricultural settings, weasels, foxes, coyotes, and other predators prey on roof rats, but their take is inconsequential as a population control factor. Scratching sounds - if you hear gnawing and the sounds of scampering in the walls or around the house you might have rats. Newer rodenticides are much more efficacious and have resulted in the phasing out of these older materials over the last 20 years. Such caches may be found in a dismantled wood pile, attic, or behind boxes in a garage. Neophobia is more pronounced in roof rats than in Norway rats. They approach new food or object with caution. Usually the peaks in breeding occur in the spring and fall.
