What Does a Roof Rat Look Like?

Commercial businesses and residential homes in the Greater Austin, Texas area are susceptible to roof rats. Roof rats range in an assortment of colors from brown with black blending into its coat and variations of gray, white and black. Their fur is soft and smooth and feature a pointed muzzle, large eyes and ears, which are nearly fur-less. The body of the roof rat is generally 6”-8” and the tail is an additional 7”-10” long. They weigh between 5 and 12 ounces. They are a threat to people and structures, by invading buildings and inflicting damage foraging for food and constructing nests and spread illnesses and contaminate food.

Where Do Roof Rats Come From & Where Do They Live During the Day?

The Texas roof rat is so named because of their incredible ability to climb and traverse the roof tops of buildings, usually finding entry to the buildings by vents, utility lines, or damage within the rooftop. Outside, roof rats can be found nesting above ground, in trees and in dense vegetation. Inside they are usually in the attic, just above ceilings, behind walls, and in the top areas of cabinets.
