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 College Mobile Park 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.

Like the Norway rat, the roof rat is implicated in the transmission of a number of diseases to humans, including murine typhus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis (food poisoning), rat-bite fever, and plague.
Female adults will produce about seven litters per year and will mate again about 18 hours after giving birth to her litter of about eight pups.
Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways.
They do very well on feed provided for domestic animals such as swine, dairy cows, and chickens, as well as on dog and cat food.
The 5 to 8 young in the litter develop rapidly, growing hair within a week.
Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits.
Hantavirus - a potentially lethal virus if humans come in contact with rat urine or feces.
High-frequency sound-producing devices are advertised for frightening rats, but almost no research exists on their effects specifically on roof rats.
Roof rats are adept climbers and not surprisingly are apt to build their nests in locations above ground.
Hundreds may be nesting in a city block-in underground burrows, in sewers, on roofs, inside buildings-with few people in the area realizing it.
Tunnel boxes or bait boxes specially designed to expose a layer of toxic powder will reduce potential contamination problems and may actually increase effectiveness.
You hear the scratching rodents in your attic at night, correct? So you might assume that the rats are entering your attic at night.
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.
Roof rats have hairless, scaly tails that are longer than their heads and bodies.
They may be frightened by sound-producing devices for awhile but they become accustomed to constant and frequently repeated sounds quickly.
Visual sightings of live or dead rodents indicate rodent activity.
Roof rats are highly adaptable.
They may eat the bark of smaller citrus branches and girdle them.
These rats are primarily active at night.
A few baits are strong enough to cause death with a single feeding.
Although roof rats have not yet been connected to HPS, everyone is advised to use caution when dealing with an infestation.
Some of the more important diseases associated with rats include Rat-Bite Fever and Leptospirosis.
They may live in the landscaping of one residence and feed at another.
Roof rats usually require water daily, though their local diet may provide an adequate amount if it is high in water content.
