  • Are cage traps a good option for rats?

Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits. Most information on this subject comes from populations confined in cages or outdoor pens. Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off of the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist. They can successfully mate throughout the year, meaning that if you have rats in the attic, then there is a good possibility that they will have a nest of baby rats that you will need to deal with as well. Should Norway rats infest a structure, they most likely will live in the basement or ground floor. Then they return to the attic. Generally, a few more feedings are necessary to produce death with the first-generation anticoagulants (warfarin, pindone, diphacinone, and chlorophacinone) but this is less significant with the second-generation anticoagulants (bromadiolone and brodifacoum). Roof rats are also food hoarders, stashing supplies of food such as seeds and nuts.

Because of the diseases they can carry, you should also check up on the equipment that you will need to safely trap the rats without any risk to your health. Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed. Their design makes them more rat-specific when used out-of-doors than ordinary snap traps that sometimes take birds. Most commercial baits are registered for both species of rats and for house mice, but often they are less acceptable to roof rats than to the other species. A control operation, therefore, must reduce numbers to a very low level; otherwise, rats will not only reproduce rapidly, but often quickly exceed their former density for a short period of time. Any reputable nuisance wildlife company will have spent money on licensing, liability insurance, and a host of other business expenses. Setting a trap to collect a few specimens may be the only sure way to identify the rat or rats involved. They lead you to believe there is no other rat control solution.

Scratching sounds - if you hear gnawing and the sounds of scampering in the walls or around the house you might have rats. Proper ladder safety is a must, as is roof safety. Generally, a few more feedings are necessary to produce death with the first-generation anticoagulants (warfarin, pindone, diphacinone, and chlorophacinone) but this is less significant with the second-generation anticoagulants (bromadiolone and brodifacoum). Rats (especially Roof rats) are wary of new objects, new foods or changed in environment. From causing plague epidemics (the "Black Death" of Europe) to rat-bite fever, whether feeding on stored grain or gnawing electric wires, rats are enemies of humankind. Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences. Roof rats usually require water daily, though their local diet may provide an adequate amount if it is high in water content. Their tails are longer than the rest of their body and are uniformly dark colored.
