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 Bay Ridge rodent trapping process.

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.

Dealing With Roof Rat Problems


what do rodents eat in the wild

  • Are cage traps a good option for rats?

In sugarcane, they move into the field as the cane matures and feed on the cane stalks. The common wooden snap traps that are effective for Norway rats are effective for roof rats. It actually makes it worse, because the rats are multiplying, dying, defecating, destroying insulation, chewing wires and chewing air ducts, while you wait for your next service. Most pest control companies set rat traps, perhaps squirt some flammable expansion foam at very obvious holes, and then put you on a monthly service to remove the rats that are still getting in to your home. In some agricultural areas, roof rats cause significant losses of tree crops such as citrus and avocados and, to a lesser extent, walnuts, almonds, and other nuts. This is why traps and bait stations may be avoided for a day or two. Within a population, some rats will be easy to control, some difficult. Rat droppings are small, dark, cylindrically shaped, and are about one-half inch to three-fourths inch long with blunt ends.

  • What Are Rats?

The young are born in a nest about 21 to 23 days after conception. Rats are responsible for the spread of many diseases. Some of the first-generation anticoagulants (pindone and warfarin) are available as soluble rodenticides from which water baits can be prepared. Some of their habitats include garbage dumps, sewers and fields. Rat control requires an integrated approach that includes non-lethal tools such as careful inspections, upgraded sanitation, and rat-proofing structures. 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. Some of their habitats include garbage dumps, sewers and fields.

Rats usually begin searching for food shortly after sunset. Rodents sniff out the bait and return to feed upon it continuously until the poison kills them. The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors. They may also enter through ill-fitted doors, windows, or screens, and air vents that are not in sound or working order. They are particularly useful for house mouse control in situations where other methods seem less appropriate. They may try to sell you poison stations for exterior rat control, however the rats only find their way back into your attic or walls to die. For the characteristics of the various anticoagulant rodenticides see Norway Rats. For best results, try several baits to find out which one rats consume most.
