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 Orlovista rodent trapping process.

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.

Remove pre harvest fruits or nuts that drop in backyards. No, they sleep in the attic all day. Floor drains and sewer pipes should have tight-fitting grates with openings less than 1/4 inch in diameter. Traps may be nailed to beams or studs and secured to pipes with wires. It is found in every state. Bait stations are sometimes difficult to place for roof rat control because of the rodents’ overhead traveling characteristics. Bubonic Plague - the famous disease that nearly wiped out humanity during the Middle Ages was eventually traced back to parasites like fleas carried by rats. Having completed the repairs to wires, and possibly vacuumed feces or replaced insulation (not usually necessary) fumigate the attic to kill any remaining parasites or spores from the rats.

Indoors, runways appear as clean paths through dust or dirt. Labels will specify where and under what conditions the bait can be used. Scratching sounds - if you hear gnawing and the sounds of scampering in the walls or around the house you might have rats. For more info on general rat control, go to my main rat removal page, or my extensive instructional how to get rid of rats page. Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways. Look for fresh droppings. They have coarse, brown fur, with lighter fur on the undersides.

They may also enter through ill-fitted doors, windows, or screens, and air vents that are not in sound or working order. Touch is an important sense in rats. Rats that are captured should be humanely destroyed and not released elsewhere because of their role in disease transmission, damage potential, and detrimental effect on native wildlife. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide. That is not the case! They sleep in your attic all day, and then at dusk they wake up, and start moving around, and that's why you hear them after dark. Droppings - you might find these in places like cupboards, cabinets and other areas around the home where rats like to hide This is why traps and bait stations may be avoided for a day or two. 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.
