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.

Newer rodenticides are much more efficacious and have resulted in the phasing out of these older materials over the last 20 years.
The traditional style snap traps are still among the best ways of dealing with a rat problem, and these are simple to set and bait, and you should look to place them in areas where the rats are active, so where you can see feces and smudges on the walls.
The advantages of trapping when compared to baiting include: 1) Trapping does not require the use of harmful poisons; 2) Trapping allows the user to know whether the rat was killed, whereas with baiting the rat will wander off and die somewhere else; 3) Trapping eliminates odor problems by allowing you to dispose of the rat carcass.
Once you're satisfied that there is no more evidence of rats, and you are not trapping any new rats, you should clean the attic or whatever area they were living in, to remove the contamination and biohazard, and also to eliminate the rat scent, which will attract new rats to try to chew their way into the house in the future.
A mouse's tracks will be much shorter.
Nests inside and under buildings, or in piles of rubbish or wood.
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.

If you have rats in your home, it's very important to do the job right the first time! I have seen dozens and dozens of cases of nightmare scenarios over many years, in which homeowners have paid pest control companies for a monthly contract that never ends.
Mating generally peaks in the warmer months of the year, but may occur year round in some areas.
Parks with natural and artificial ponds, or reservoirs may also be infested.
Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits.
Many rats may cache or hoard considerable amounts of solid food, which they eat later.
Rats rely more on their keen senses of smell, taste, touch, and hearing than on vision.
At about 3 months of age they are completely independent of the mother and are reproductively mature.
There is less tendency to see droppings, urine, or tracks on the floor in buildings because rats may live overhead between floors, above false ceilings, or in utility spaces, and venture down to feed or obtain food.
At least in some parts of the United States and elsewhere in the world, the methods used to control rats have reduced Norway rat populations but have permitted roof rats to become more prominent, apparently because they are more difficult to control.
Droppings Rats produce a lot of feces and the presence of their fecal droppings is a surefire way to spot an infestation.
Walk only on the wooden beams in the attic, never the sheet rock, or you could fall through the ceiling! Be careful, an attic is a hazardous place, where it can be easy to fall, or poke a roofing nail in your head.
Both roof rats and Norway rats have a well-developed sense of smell and are wary of new things that are introduced into their home range.
The whiskers and guard hairs enable the animals to travel adjacent to walls in the dark and in burrows.
