The Roof Rat Vs. The Norway Rat
Often compared to the Norway Rat, roof rats are believed to have originated in the forests of Southeast Asia. Unlike the Norway rat, the roof rat is typically found in coastal cities or waterways with coastal climates.
Roof Rat Infestation
The roof rat got its name from its tendency to set up camp in higher structures. If you live in a neighborhood with fences, or high shrubbery or fruit trees, it’s easy for them to scamper down fences, utility lines, and roofs. They are known to live in the tops of palm trees which can also make easy access to the home and attic.
Once roof rats enter a house, they gravitate towards high areas like attics, soffits, drop ceilings and upper wall voids. Although they seek refuge in homes, they usually find their food source outdoors.
