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 Oak Ridge 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.

Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient. Roof rats have hairless, scaly tails that are longer than their heads and bodies. There's nothing fun about finding rats around your home or property. Various sounds that indicate rodent activity include gnawing, scratching, and digging noises. Rats have acute hearing and can readily detect noises. Indoors, runways appear as clean paths through dust or dirt. Typically, 3 or more litters are produced annually. Roof rats frequently enter buildings from the roof or from accesses near overhead utility lines, which they use to travel from area to area.

  • Biology of Black Rat

They are considered to be color-blind, responding only to the degree of lightness and darkness of color. Roof rats are more aerial than Norway rats in their habitat selection and often live in trees or on vine-covered fences. Scratching sounds - if you hear gnawing and the sounds of scampering in the walls or around the house you might have rats. All anticoagulants provide excellent roof rat control when prepared in acceptable baits. Nests and Burrows - check behind shelves, boxes, behind the fridge, anywhere that a rat might like to use as a hiding space. For best results, try several baits to find out which one rats consume most. In some situations in which the rats have been eliminated, cats that are good hunters may prevent reinfestation.

There are several other types of lethal traps, including the crocodile trap, which has teeth that close on the rat, and even gas chamber traps. The number of litters depends on the area and varies with nearness to the limit of their climatic range, availability of nutritious food, density of the local rat population, and the age of the rat. Urine Stains & Odors - Rodent urine deposited on rodent runways appear as a line of fine drops or streaks under an ultraviolet flashlight, or black light tool. Out-of-doors, roof rats may be present in low to moderate numbers with little sign in the way of tracks or droppings or runs and burrows. In situations where rats are not controlled with conventional products, fumigation of transport vehicles or rat ground burrows may sometimes be needed. Timing a sealup for rats is impossible, because they leave for short periods, and they don't all leave at the same time of night. Observation Rats are not usually seen during the day unless disturbed from their protective harborage or because of intolerable competition from other rats. The roof rat is more at home in warm climates, and apparently less adaptable, than the Norway rat, which is why it has not spread throughout the country.
