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. 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.

Baiting - This method uses poisons, or rodenticides, to attract and kill rodents. 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. Pesticides must be registered for rat control by federal and/or state authorities and used in accordance with label directions. Also, Norway rats may prey upon fish, poultry, mice, birds, small reptiles and amphibians. Roof rats usually require water daily, though their local diet may provide an adequate amount if it is high in water content. Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient. The social behavior of free-living roof rats is very difficult to study and, as a result, has received less attention than that of Norway rats. Where label instructions permit, small blocks can be placed or fastened on rafters, ledges, or even attached to tree limbs, where they are readily accessible to the arboreal rats.
