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.

Roof rats entering homes are generally found in raised or secure enclosures such as walls, cabinets, attics, and false ceilings. The muzzle of the roof rat is pointed and the overall appearance of the roof rat is much more streamlined and sleek looking than a Norway rat. rat 003Broken foundations, utility entries and vents can also be an obvious entry point. They have coarse, brown fur, with lighter fur on the undersides. Use enough traps to eliminate the rodents quickly. Lethal control often combines the use of rodenticides with non-toxic control measures such as snap traps or glue boards. Damage - a rat's teeth are constantly growing and that means they have to chew on hard things like wood to trim them back. At least in some parts of the United States and elsewhere in the world, the methods used to control rats have reduced Norway rat populations but have permitted roof rats to become more prominent, apparently because they are more difficult to control.

If you think that you might have rats on your property or inside your home then call for a Rat Exterminator rat control expert or contact us online to set up an appointment. Should Norway rats infest a structure, they most likely will live in the basement or ground floor. Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything. In controlling roof rats with rodenticides, a sharp distinction must be made between control in and around buildings and control away from buildings such as in landfills and dumps, along drainage ditches and streams, in sewer water evaporation ponds, and in parks. Such caches may be found in a dismantled wood pile, attic, or behind boxes in a garage. In landscaped yards they often live in overgrown shrubbery or vines, feeding on ornamentals, vegetables, fruits, and nuts. If you have rats in your home, it's very important to do the job right the first time! I have seen dozens and dozens of cases of nightmare scenarios over many years, in which homeowners have paid pest control companies for a monthly contract that never ends. These devices must be viewed with considerable skepticism, because research has not proven them effective.

POISON IS A HORRIBLE IDEA FOR MANY MANY REASONS - poison won't solve the problem, and it'll just create more problems. Rats themselves - if you see one rat, there's a good chance there are a bunch more hiding in nests or burrows that you can't see. Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything. Also, roof rats are likely to consume insects. Monitor the situation. Most commercial baits are registered for both species of rats and for house mice, but often they are less acceptable to roof rats than to the other species. 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. The whiskers and guard hairs enable the animals to travel adjacent to walls in the dark and in burrows.
