Roof rats are highly adaptable.
Wire-mesh, live traps (Tomahawk®, Havahart®) are available for trapping rats.
At least in some parts of the United States and elsewhere in the world, the methods used to control rats have reduced Norway rat populations but have permitted roof rats to become more prominent, apparently because they are more difficult to control.
Most of the states in the US interior are free of roof rats, but isolated infestations, probably stemming from infested cargo shipments, can occur.
These devices must be viewed with considerable skepticism, because research has not proven them effective.
Your inspection process must include ladder work and climbing on a roof.
Always be sure that fresh bait is available continuously until rats stop feeding.
The food habits of roof rats outdoors in some respects resemble those of tree squirrels, since they prefer a wide variety of fruit and nuts.
Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces.
In landscaped yards they often live in overgrown shrubbery or vines, feeding on ornamentals, vegetables, fruits, and nuts.

In agricultural settings, weasels, foxes, coyotes, and other predators prey on roof rats, but their take is inconsequential as a population control factor.
However, the complexity in mode of action of newer materials makes these classifications outdated.
In a human environment, the rodents will consume almost any food to which they have access.
The first and most crucial thing is to inspect the house and find all possible entry holes, and before starting any trapping, carry out repairs and seal the attic so the rats can't get in again.
The social behavior of free-living roof rats is very difficult to study and, as a result, has received less attention than that of Norway rats.
This means there are no more rats to feed on it because they are dead.
No rat bait ingredient is universally highly acceptable, and regional differences are the rule rather than the exception.
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.
Generally, Roof rats stay within 100 miles inland.
Tunnel boxes or bait boxes specially designed to expose a layer of toxic powder will reduce potential contamination problems and may actually increase effectiveness.
Where legal and not hazardous, shooting of roof rats is effective at dusk as they travel along utility lines.
Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption.
Rub marks - rats get coated with dirt and they like to rub against the walls to find their way around a room’s perimeter, since they can't see so well.
