Hundreds may be nesting in a city block-in underground burrows, in sewers, on roofs, inside buildings-with few people in the area realizing it.
Rat droppings are small, dark, cylindrically shaped, and are about one-half inch to three-fourths inch long with blunt ends.
When droppings are seen, it is a good practice to remove those droppings and later inspect to see whether new droppings were deposited.
Tunnel boxes or bait boxes specially designed to expose a layer of toxic powder will reduce potential contamination problems and may actually increase effectiveness.
Baiting - This method uses poisons, or rodenticides, to attract and kill rodents.
Rats tend to segregate themselves socially in both space and time.
Various sounds that indicate rodent activity include gnawing, scratching, and digging noises.
When rodent-proofing against roof rats, pay close attention to the roof and roof line areas to assure all accesses are closed.
Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed.
There are holes all over - missing roof vent screens, plumbing stacks, gaps between the roof and fascia board, gaps in the siding, areas where pipes go into the house, etc.
Listen for rat evidence, like their scurrying and running noises in the attic, and scratching in the walls.
Also, Norway rats may prey upon fish, poultry, mice, birds, small reptiles and amphibians.
Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces.

Statisticians estimate that rats destroy 20 percent of the world's food supply every year by feeding, and indirectly through contamination.
Norway rats and the roof rats are very different in their habits, habitats and behavior, so the first requirement of a rat treatment program is to correctly identify the rat and develop a treatment plan that works for that species.
While rats can live in the walls, the kitchen, under the house, etc. the most common place for rats to inhabit in a house is the attic.
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.
Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics.
They move faster than Norway rats and are very agile climbers, which enables them to quickly escape predators.
In food-processing and food-storage facilities, roof rats do about the same type of damage as Norway rats, and damage is visually hard to differentiate.
All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice.
Between 9 and 14 days, their eyes open, and they begin to explore for food and move about near their nest.
Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off of the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist.
