  • How to Get Rid of Rats

They are often found living on the second floor of a warehouse in which Norway rats occupy the first or basement floor. Any reputable nuisance wildlife company will have spent money on licensing, liability insurance, and a host of other business expenses. Caution should be taken to avoid trapping nontarget species such as tree squirrels. A vegetation-free margin around the grove will slow rat invasions because rats are more susceptible to predation when crossing unfamiliar open areas. Lives up to one year. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide. The first step in controlling a roof rat infestation is to properly identify the rodents. Strip and destroy all unwanted fruit when the harvest period is over.

Norway rats build their nests in underground burrows where they mate, rear their young, store food and seek refuge from predators. In rare instances, isolated populations are found in areas not within their normal distribution range in the United States. They use their tails for balance while traveling along overhead utility lines. The advantages of trapping when compared to baiting include: 1) Trapping does not require the use of harmful poisons; 2) Trapping allows the user to know whether the rat was killed, whereas with baiting the rat will wander off and die somewhere else; 3) Trapping eliminates odor problems by allowing you to dispose of the rat carcass. Glue boards will catch roof rats, but, like traps, they must be located on beams, rafters, and along other travel routes, making them more difficult to place effectively for roof rats than for Norway rats or house mice. Some traps should be placed on the floor, but more should be placed above floor level (for example, on top of stacked commodities). Traps may be nailed to beams or studs and secured to pipes with wires. They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source.

What Do Rats Eat?

  • What are Rats?

Roof rats will often move into sugarcane and citrus groves. Rats can squeeze into a hole the size of a quarter. 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. The commercially available, expanded plastic treadle traps, such as the Victor Professional Rat Trap, are particularly effective if properly located in well-traveled paths. You will know the bait is working when the bait is no longer being consumed. Other vegetable, melon, berry, and fruit crops occasionally suffer relatively minor damage when adjacent to infested habitat such as riparian vegetation. Visual sightings of live or dead rodents indicate rodent activity. Snap traps are actually the very best way to do it.
