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.

A few baits are strong enough to cause death with a single feeding. Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions. Roof rats are not protected by law and can be controlled any time with mechanical or chemical methods. In most instances, rats are very wary. Because roof rats are fast and agile, they are not easy prey for mammalian or avian predators. Rat densities (numbers of rats in a given area) are determined primarily by the suitability of the habitat—the amount of available nutritional and palatable food and nearby protective cover (shelter or harborage). Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available. Fur is smooth.

Also, be careful when setting snap traps. The Norway rat is generally considered the most important rat in the United States. In agricultural settings, weasels, foxes, coyotes, and other predators prey on roof rats, but their take is inconsequential as a population control factor. Exclusion and sealing of sites greater than ½ inch (about the size of a dime) using screens, flashing, door sweeps and other materials to keep rats from entering a structure. Distinctions must be made as to which rodenticide (registered product) to use, the method of application or placement, and the amount of bait to apply. Landscaped residential or industrial areas provide good habitat, as does riparian vegetation of riverbanks and streams. All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice. The social behavior of free-living roof rats is very difficult to study and, as a result, has received less attention than that of Norway rats.

  • Baiting Tips for Roof Rats

Rats (especially Roof rats) are wary of new objects, new foods or changed in environment. In most of our urban areas, Norway rats may be seen scurrying around after dark looking for food in garbage cans and other places where human refuse is found. The latter two were ineffective for roof rats. Scientists have noted that the roof rat’s long tail is adapted to enhance their ability to climb and functions to assists them in balancing. Listen for rat evidence, like their scurrying and running noises in the attic, and scratching in the walls. Make sure that all doors, windows and screens fit tightly in their frames and repair those that do not. Read more about where rats live. Traps should be placed flush with walls in areas of highest travel (as determined by Inspection).
