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.

You don't want to over-pay of course. Once you know the location of the rats, you can set traps or place bait. Products sold as general animal repellents, based on taste and/or odor, are sometimes advertised to repel animals, including rats, from garbage bags. It is recommended for use in homes because, unlike with poison baits, there is no risk of a rat dying in an inaccessible place and creating an odor problem. Some of the more important non-chemical methods are: 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.

They move faster than Norway rats and are very agile climbers, which enables them to quickly escape predators. In residences where rats may be living in the attic and feeding outdoors, the damage may be restricted to tearing up insulation for nesting or gnawing electrical wiring. The roof rat is more at home in warm climates, and apparently less adaptable, than the Norway rat, which is why it has not spread throughout the country. Such caches may be found in a dismantled wood pile, attic, or behind boxes in a garage. The adequate inspection of a large facility for the presence and location of roof rats often requires a nighttime search when the facility is normally shut down. Norway rats are also polygamous and form colonies of many males and females. Roof rats can also enter openings in walls, eaves and roof from the branches of trees. Their design makes them more rat-specific when used out-of-doors than ordinary snap traps that sometimes take birds.

Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide. Since roof rats rarely dig burrows, burrow fumigants are of limited use; however, if they have constructed burrows, then fumigants that are effective on Norway rats, such as aluminum phosphide and gas cartridges, will be effective on roof rats. 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. Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome is transferred via inhalation of rodent urine, droppings or saliva. Only after you've sealed the openings shut, you should start trapping and removal. Roof rats can also enter openings in walls, eaves and roof from the branches of trees. Roof rats are likely to found in coastal, near-coastal areas and port cities. Snails are a favorite food, but don’t expect roof rats to eliminate a garden snail problem.
