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 Summerport Beach 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.

These rodents have been known to consume tree bark, meat and grain. Their tails are longer than the rest of their body and are uniformly dark colored. Roof rats can also enter openings in walls, eaves and roof from the branches of trees. Check the traps periodically, remove any dead trapped rats, and reset the traps. The Norway rat produces six to eight litters of six to nine young per year. While you are preventing future rat population growth through inspection, sanitation, and exclusion, you will also want to begin working towards elimination of the population that is already present through trapping and baiting. Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption. They are constantly exploring surroundings and notice changes and are suspicious by nature.

Young rats generally cannot be trapped until about 1 month old. 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. Tracking powders play an important role in structural rodent control. 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. Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways. Their keen sense of hearing also aids in their ability to detect and escape danger.
