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.

Humane Rat Control in Vineland Florida
Roof rats also have an excellent sense of balance.
Roof rats are more aerial than Norway rats in their habitat selection and often live in trees or on vine-covered fences.
Trapping is the preferred method of indoor control.
Gnawing holes - Gnawing holes from Roof rats are about 2 inches or more in diameter and will have rough edges.
Liquid baits may be an effective alternative in situations where normal baits are not readily accepted, especially where water is scarce or where rats must travel some distance to reach water.
Tunnel boxes or bait boxes specially designed to expose a layer of toxic powder will reduce potential contamination problems and may actually increase effectiveness.
The commercially available, expanded plastic treadle traps, such as the Victor Professional Rat Trap, are particularly effective if properly located in well-traveled paths.
Then the rats should be trapped and removed.
Because of the diseases they can carry, you should also check up on the equipment that you will need to safely trap the rats without any risk to your health.
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.
When everyone is asleep and the house is quiet, the rats can be heard scurrying about.
They may live in the landscaping of one residence and feed at another.
The first step in controlling a roof rat infestation is to properly identify the rodents.

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:
Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics.
Rats (especially Roof rats) are wary of new objects, new foods or changed in environment.
They can successfully mate throughout the year, meaning that if you have rats in the attic, then there is a good possibility that they will have a nest of baby rats that you will need to deal with as well.
In food-storage facilities, the most prominent sign may be smudge marks, the result of oil and dirt rubbing off of their fur as they travel along their aerial routes.
Landscaped residential or industrial areas provide good habitat, as does riparian vegetation of riverbanks and streams.
Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions.
Roof rats entering homes are generally found in raised or secure enclosures such as walls, cabinets, attics, and false ceilings.
Roof rats are omnivores and will feed on many types of vegetation such as fruits, grains, seeds and grocery produce.
Roof rats have hairless, scaly tails that are longer than their heads and bodies.
