In controlling roof rats with rodenticides, a sharp distinction must be made between control in and around buildings and control away from buildings such as in landfills and dumps, along drainage ditches and streams, in sewer water evaporation ponds, and in parks.
They can often be seen at night running along overhead utility lines or fences.
These rats are nocturnal and are excellent climbers.
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.
It is difficult to find suitable places to lay the tracking powder that will not create a potential problem of contaminating food or materials below the placement sites.
These kill traps are often baited with whole nuts and are most useful in trapping rats in trees.
Sounds in the attic are often the first indication of the presence of roof rats in a residence.
They may eat the bark of smaller citrus branches and girdle them.
Unless the suitability of the rat’s habitat is destroyed by modifying the landscaping, improving sanitation, and rat-proofing, control methods must be unrelenting if they are to be effective.

Various sounds that indicate rodent activity include gnawing, scratching, and digging noises.

They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source.

Roof rats are not accomplished swimmers and are not usually found in sewers.
This is why traps and bait stations may be avoided for a day or two.
In some agricultural areas, roof rats cause significant losses of tree crops such as citrus and avocados and, to a lesser extent, walnuts, almonds, and other nuts.
Killing the rats may not be the best answer (it is not as simple as just exterminating them all) .
The damage control methods used for roof rats are essentially the same as for Norway rats.
Elsewhere, reports indicate that roof rats are slowly disappearing from localized areas for no apparent reason.
Avoid using poison and glue traps, as these are inhumane and cause more problems than they solve.
Traps may be nailed to beams or studs and secured to pipes with wires.
Typically, 3 or more litters are produced annually.
