  • Rat Infestation

  • Rat Proofing

Should Norway rats infest a structure, they most likely will live in the basement or ground floor. 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. If rats are seen during the day that usually means a very large rodent population is nearby. If you've sealed the house correctly, then you shouldn't trap any new rats after just the first three days. Read my comprehensive guide to rats in the attic. As mentioned above, roof rats prefer above ground nesting locations in shrubs, trees, and dense vegetation. You can often find smudges as an indication of rats, but they can often stay on walls for a long time, so it might be from an old infestation. Once you know the location of the rats, you can set traps or place bait.

Roof rats are more aerial than Norway rats in their habitat selection and often live in trees or on vine-covered fences. Use enough traps to eliminate the rodents quickly. Neophobia is more pronounced in roof rats than in Norway rats. Rats have acute hearing and can readily detect noises.
