Physical characteristics of roof rats include sleek coats that are usually gray, black, or brown with white underbellies. Their bodies measure about seven to eight inches long, and they have even longer tails that are roughly eight to ten inches in length.
Roof rats prefer fruits, vegetation, and nuts to make up the majority of their diet. They also eat insects and snails. However, when sources are limited, roof rats consume anything they can find. This opportunistic behavior drives the pests into homes where they scavenge for leftover scraps, pet food, and trash.
Roof rats live in warm and tropical regions of the U.S. Lands covered in dense vegetation and located near water are the preferred habitats of these pests. Their nesting sites include parks and areas near ponds, particularly in trees and shrubbery. Farms and sheds also create protective shelters for the rodents and substitute as nests when vegetation is scarce.
