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.

Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species. Eliminate vines growing on buildings and, when feasible, overhanging tree limbs that may be used as travel routes. Some of their habitats include garbage dumps, sewers and fields. The only way to solve a rat or mouse problem is to find every last point of entry into the house, and seal it shut. They also often chew on inedible materials such as books, soap, and cans. This is a great supplementary treatment to trapping when you are dealing with larger rodent populations, or for outdoor populations. Roof rats are prodigious breeders. The common wooden snap traps that are effective for Norway rats are effective for roof rats.

  • What if you are bitten by a rat

Products sold as general animal repellents, based on taste and/or odor, are sometimes advertised to repel animals, including rats, from garbage bags. In most instances, rats are very wary. Adult females are able to reproduce at 3-5 months old, can produce up to five litters each year with about 5-8 young in each litter. They also consume seeds, nuts, berries, and insects. Only after you've sealed the openings shut, you should start trapping and removal. Without this knowledge, both time and money are wasted, and the chances of failure are increased. Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed. While you will not reasonably be able to compensate for every possible rodent entry, you can greatly reduce the ease of entry for rodents (and thereby, reduce the population size) by taking the following measures:

Monitor the situation. Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption. The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors. 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. I highly recommend snap traps, not live cage traps, certainly not glue boards, and most definitely not poison! Never poison rats, it doesn't solve the problem and it just creates more problems. A few baits are strong enough to cause death with a single feeding. Bait stations are sometimes difficult to place for roof rat control because of the rodents’ overhead traveling characteristics.
