Exclusion and sealing of sites greater than ½ inch (about the size of a dime) using screens, flashing, door sweeps and other materials to keep rats from entering a structure.
Droppings Rats produce a lot of feces and the presence of their fecal droppings is a surefire way to spot an infestation.
Droppings are another good indicator of roof rat activity.
Then the rats should be trapped and removed.
You will know the bait is working when the bait is no longer being consumed.
Tracking powders are used much less often for roof rats than for Norway rats because roof rats frequent overhead areas within buildings.
Emphasis should be placed on the removal of as much harborage as is practical.
They have also been found living in sewer systems, but this is not common.
These rodents have been known to consume tree bark, meat and grain.
Roof rats are also food hoarders, stashing supplies of food such as seeds and nuts.
They are often found living on the second floor of a warehouse in which Norway rats occupy the first or basement floor.
Specifications may vary depending on bait manufacturer even though the active ingredient may be the same.
The elimination of food and water through good warehouse sanitation can do much to reduce rodent infestation.
For example, only zinc phosphide can be applied on the ground to control rats in sugarcane or macadamia orchards, and the second-generation anticoagulants, cholecalciferol and bromethalin, can be used only in and around buildings, not around crops or away from buildings even in non crop situations.
Since roof rats rarely dig burrows, burrow fumigants are of limited use; however, if they have constructed burrows, then fumigants that are effective on Norway rats, such as aluminum phosphide and gas cartridges, will be effective on roof rats.
The latter two were ineffective for roof rats.
Rats that are captured should be humanely destroyed and not released elsewhere because of their role in disease transmission, damage potential, and detrimental effect on native wildlife.
For the characteristics of the various anticoagulant rodenticides see Norway Rats.
In landscaped yards they often live in overgrown shrubbery or vines, feeding on ornamentals, vegetables, fruits, and nuts.
Also, Norway rats may prey upon fish, poultry, mice, birds, small reptiles and amphibians.
They are nocturnal by nature and are accomplished climbers.
Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures.
Other indicators can include grease marks along surfaces as well as nests.
Norway rats are also omnivores and will eat just about anything that is found near where humans discard food.
