Control methods must reflect an understanding of the roof rat’s habitat requirements, reproductive capabilities, food habits, life history, behavior, senses, movements, and the dynamics of its population structure.
Roof rats are also food hoarders, stashing supplies of food such as seeds and nuts.
Bait stations are sometimes difficult to place for roof rat control because of the rodents’ overhead traveling characteristics.
These can be identified by the brown smudges of grease that comes from the rat's fur, and should all be sealed to prevent future rat infestations in the attic.
Rat treatment involves both non-chemical and chemical methods.
Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption.
METHOD OF CONTROL: First of all, mothballs or ammonia won't make them leave, nor will ultrasonic sound emitters or strobe lights.
If you've sealed the house correctly, then you shouldn't trap any new rats after just the first three days.
They have coarse, brown fur, with lighter fur on the undersides.
If you have rats in your home, it's very important to do the job right the first time! I have seen dozens and dozens of cases of nightmare scenarios over many years, in which homeowners have paid pest control companies for a monthly contract that never ends.
Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource.
Products sold as general animal repellents, based on taste and/or odor, are sometimes advertised to repel animals, including rats, from garbage bags.

Invest in your home and property by taking care of the rat problem correctly.
They have also been found living in sewer systems, but this is not common.
Rats may carry viruses such as Hantavirus and salmonella, and although they can also be a carrier of bubonic plague, that disease is not indigenous in the USA.
Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything.
Listen for rat evidence, like their scurrying and running noises in the attic, and scratching in the walls.
Breeding seasons vary in different areas.
Dense shrubbery, vine-covered trees and fences, and vine ground cover make ideal harborage for roof rats.
Roof rats have a strong tendency to avoid new objects in their environment and this neophobia can influence control efforts, for it may take several days before they will approach a bait station or trap.
In food-processing and storage facilities, they will feed on nearly all food items, though their food preferences may differ from those of Norway rats.
