High-frequency sound-producing devices are advertised for frightening rats, but almost no research exists on their effects specifically on roof rats.
They may eat vegetation, but prefer to meat or meat-related wastes.

However, when a Norway rat population grows so large that competition from other rats for food, water and harborage increases, some members of the rat community may seek to find new areas to colonize during the daytime.
Their use for roof rats is limited to control within structures because roof rats rarely produce burrows.
Rats themselves - if you see one rat, there's a good chance there are a bunch more hiding in nests or burrows that you can't see.
Rat droppings are small, dark, cylindrically shaped, and are about one-half inch to three-fourths inch long with blunt ends.

They are considered to be color-blind, responding only to the degree of lightness and darkness of color.
Most commercial baits are registered for both species of rats and for house mice, but often they are less acceptable to roof rats than to the other species.
Trap at left is modified by fastening a piece of cardboard to expand its trigger size (traps with expanded treadles can also be purchased from several manufacturers).
Roof rats have a strong tendency to avoid new objects in their environment and this neophobia can influence control efforts, for it may take several days before they will approach a bait station or trap.
METHOD OF CONTROL: First of all, mothballs or ammonia won't make them leave, nor will ultrasonic sound emitters or strobe lights.
They use their tails for balance while traveling along overhead utility lines.
