Tracking powders are used much less often for roof rats than for Norway rats because roof rats frequent overhead areas within buildings.
Rats are easier to exclude than mice because rats a typically larger.
From causing plague epidemics (the "Black Death" of Europe) to rat-bite fever, whether feeding on stored grain or gnawing electric wires, rats are enemies of humankind.
Such caches may be found in a dismantled wood pile, attic, or behind boxes in a garage.
Rat treatment involves both non-chemical and chemical methods.
In situations where rats are not controlled with conventional products, fumigation of transport vehicles or rat ground burrows may sometimes be needed.

They prefer to consume fruits (sometimes referred to as the “fruit rat” or “citrus rat”) and nuts, although roof rats are omnivorous and will feed on almost anything available to them.
Once you are confident that you have caught all of the rats that are in the attic, then it will be time to check for any insulation or wires in the attic that need to be replaced, and for any nesting material to remove, and feces to clean up.
The young may continue to nurse until 4 or 5 weeks old.
Nests inside and under buildings, or in piles of rubbish or wood.
Nests and Burrows - check behind shelves, boxes, behind the fridge, anywhere that a rat might like to use as a hiding space.
