With our vast knowledge of rat behavior and building construction, we will inspect every inch of your house or building – from top to bottom – and find every possible entry point. Once we have permanently sealed up all the holes, typically with heavy steel mesh or metal plating that rats can’t chew through, then we can start the Crown Point rodent trapping process.

The best rat trap: Believe it or not, the tried-and-true, low-tech mouse trap (snap trap) – a simple piece of wood with a spring-loaded bar – is the most effective and humane way to kill a rat. Snap traps kill rats instantly, they are inexpensive and reusable, and they can fit in small spaces. Do not worry about the bait – you can use anything from peanut butter to fruit to – yes, cheese.

They also feed on a variety of vegetative parts of ornamental and native plant materials. Rats usually begin searching for food shortly after sunset. Trapping is the preferred method of indoor control. Caution should be taken to avoid trapping nontarget species such as tree squirrels. Grease marks (from the oil and dirt of rats) often appear along walls next to runways. Dense shrubbery, vine-covered trees and fences, and vine ground cover make ideal harborage for roof rats. Pelleted or loose cereal anticoagulant baits are used extensively in tamper-resistant bait boxes or stations for a permanent baiting program for Norway rats and house mice. Rat Bite Fever - from the saliva of a rat, it comes from rats biting humans.

Droppings are another good indicator of roof rat activity. Where legal and not hazardous, shooting of roof rats is effective at dusk as they travel along utility lines. Rats tend to segregate themselves socially in both space and time. Roof Rats are commonly called black rats and are smaller than Norway rats. They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source. Some of the more important diseases associated with rats include Rat-Bite Fever and Leptospirosis. Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species. Roof rats are prodigious breeders.

Some type of clean food can be used to entice the rats to the boxes, or the tracking powders can be used in conjunction with an anticoagulant bait, with both placed in the same station. Rats themselves - if you see one rat, there's a good chance there are a bunch more hiding in nests or burrows that you can't see. Caution should be taken to avoid trapping nontarget species such as tree squirrels. Roof rats frequently enter buildings from the roof or from accesses near overhead utility lines, which they use to travel from area to area. Norway rats are usually active at dusk or during the night and are inactive during daylight hours. Pocket gopher box-type traps (such as the DK-2 Gopher Getter) can be modified to catch rats by reversing the action of the trigger. The efficacy of such products for rats is generally lacking. They prefer to consume fruits (sometimes referred to as the “fruit rat” or “citrus rat”) and nuts, although roof rats are omnivorous and will feed on almost anything available to them.
