Generally, Roof rats stay within 100 miles inland. However, a few differences must be taken into account. Rub marks - rats get coated with dirt and they like to rub against the walls to find their way around a room’s perimeter, since they can't see so well. In urban settings, cats and owls prey on roof rats but have little if any effect on well-established populations. Roof rats usually require water daily, though their local diet may provide an adequate amount if it is high in water content. Trim all tree branches to further prevent entry. Landscaped residential or industrial areas provide good habitat, as does riparian vegetation of riverbanks and streams. Scratching sounds - if you hear gnawing and the sounds of scampering in the walls or around the house you might have rats.

Droppings are another good indicator of roof rat activity. They may eat vegetation, but prefer to meat or meat-related wastes. They prefer gnawing on wood but may also damage property, electrical wiring, and food packaging. Read more about what rats eat. Within a rat colony, they may be a few rats that are extra cautious and manage to avoid traps or eating rodent baits. Use a powerful flashlight to spot rats and to determine travel routes for the best locations to set baits and traps. That is not the case! They sleep in your attic all day, and then at dusk they wake up, and start moving around, and that's why you hear them after dark. POISON IS A HORRIBLE IDEA FOR MANY MANY REASONS - poison won't solve the problem, and it'll just create more problems.
