The roof rat is more at home in warm climates, and apparently less adaptable, than the Norway rat, which is why it has not spread throughout the country. Roof rats are highly adaptable. A rat does not want to be exposed to danger outside for very long! If you think you can just seal shut the entry holes into the house during the daylight when they are outside, that is incorrect. Young rats generally cannot be trapped until about 1 month old. Most pest control companies set rat traps, perhaps squirt some flammable expansion foam at very obvious holes, and then put you on a monthly service to remove the rats that are still getting in to your home. Rats have been plaguing humans for centuries, famous for their continuously-growing sharp teeth, their desire for human food, their tendency to get into homes and buildings and create nests and their health problems - rats are the essence of a pest. They may try to sell you poison stations for exterior rat control, however the rats only find their way back into your attic or walls to die. Observation Rats are not usually seen during the day unless disturbed from their protective harborage or because of intolerable competition from other rats.

Within a population, some rats will be easy to control, some difficult. Pocket gopher box-type traps (such as the DK-2 Gopher Getter) can be modified to catch rats by reversing the action of the trigger. They lead you to believe there is no other rat control solution. Make sure that all doors, windows and screens fit tightly in their frames and repair those that do not. 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. Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control. While you are preventing future rat population growth through inspection, sanitation, and exclusion, you will also want to begin working towards elimination of the population that is already present through trapping and baiting. A few baits are strong enough to cause death with a single feeding.
