Droppings are another good indicator of roof rat activity.
Roof rats can be controlled with the same baits used for Norway rats.

They also often chew on inedible materials such as books, soap, and cans.
Rats are easier to exclude than mice because rats a typically larger.
I'm not going to go into detail about harnesses and chicken ladders and such, but be careful! Then, when in the attic, wear a respirator - you don't want to breathe in fiberglass insulation, dust or mold, or the variety of diseases associated with rats.
Roof rats can also enter openings in walls, eaves and roof from the branches of trees.
They also feed on a variety of vegetative parts of ornamental and native plant materials.
Indoors, runways appear as clean paths through dust or dirt.
Generally, a few more feedings are necessary to produce death with the first-generation anticoagulants (warfarin, pindone, diphacinone, and chlorophacinone) but this is less significant with the second-generation anticoagulants (bromadiolone and brodifacoum).
They are nocturnal by nature and are accomplished climbers.
Setting a trap to collect a few specimens may be the only sure way to identify the rat or rats involved.
Norway rats are also polygamous and form colonies of many males and females.

Roof Rats are predominate in coastal areas.
In food-processing and food-storage facilities, roof rats do about the same type of damage as Norway rats, and damage is visually hard to differentiate.
POISON IS A HORRIBLE IDEA FOR MANY MANY REASONS - poison won't solve the problem, and it'll just create more problems.
Traps should be placed flush with walls in areas of highest travel (as determined by Inspection).
Typically, 3 or more litters are produced annually.
Norway rats and the roof rats are very different in their habits, habitats and behavior, so the first requirement of a rat treatment program is to correctly identify the rat and develop a treatment plan that works for that species.
