The only way to solve a rat or mouse problem is to find every last point of entry into the house, and seal it shut. Rats will also drag their tails, leaving a mark between their feet tracks. 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 can be controlled with the same baits used for Norway rats. 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. In tropical or semi tropical regions, the season may be nearly year-round. When everyone is asleep and the house is quiet, the rats can be heard scurrying about. There's nothing fun about finding rats around your home or property.

Most information on this subject comes from populations confined in cages or outdoor pens. Sometimes rats get into the kitchen area and feed on stored foods. Roof rats are omnivores and will feed on many types of vegetation such as fruits, grains, seeds and grocery produce. 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. The most common rat in the area is the Norway rat. Also, roof rats are likely to consume insects. Usually the peaks in breeding occur in the spring and fall. The young may continue to nurse until 4 or 5 weeks old.

All anticoagulants provide excellent roof rat control when prepared in acceptable baits. Some of the first-generation anticoagulants (pindone and warfarin) are available as soluble rodenticides from which water baits can be prepared. They have coarse, brown fur, with lighter fur on the undersides. Most information on this subject comes from populations confined in cages or outdoor pens. Generally, Roof rats stay within 100 miles inland. 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. Bubonic plague was a scourge in Europe several times throughout history. Listen for rat evidence, like their scurrying and running noises in the attic, and scratching in the walls.
