Roof rats range along the lower half of the East Coast and throughout the Gulf States upward into Arkansas. Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics. Nests inside and under buildings, or in piles of rubbish or wood. The 5 to 8 young in the litter develop rapidly, growing hair within a week. Roof Rats can enter homes and other structures through openings as small as ½ inch. They are considered to be color-blind, responding only to the degree of lightness and darkness of color. In sugarcane, they move into the field as the cane matures and feed on the cane stalks. The young are born in a nest about 21 to 23 days after conception.

It is unlikely, however, they will be any more effective for roof rats than for Norway rats. For the characteristics of the various anticoagulant rodenticides see Norway Rats. These rats are nocturnal and are excellent climbers. Check the repairs you've done, to make sure no new areas have been chewed open. They may eat vegetation, but prefer to meat or meat-related wastes. 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 Norway rat is generally considered the most important rat in the United States. The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors.
