  • How to Make a Rat Trap

Tracking powders are used much less often for roof rats than for Norway rats because roof rats frequent overhead areas within buildings. 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. At present there are three rodenticides—zinc phosphide, cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), and bromethalin—registered and available for roof rat control. They may be frightened by sound-producing devices for awhile but they become accustomed to constant and frequently repeated sounds quickly. Elsewhere, reports indicate that roof rats are slowly disappearing from localized areas for no apparent reason. No, they sleep in the attic all day. Their presence is typically detected by the occurrence of their droppings, holes chewed into bags and containers, and chewed nesting materials. Also, carry out a visual examination of the attic to find the holes they were using to get in and out of the attic.

  • What should I do with a rat after I catch it?

They may try to sell you poison stations for exterior rat control, however the rats only find their way back into your attic or walls to die. Typically, 3 or more litters are produced annually. Roof rats are prodigious breeders. If the food is in an exposed area and too large to be eaten quickly, but not too large to be moved, they will usually carry it to a hiding place before eating it. Some type of clean food can be used to entice the rats to the boxes, or the tracking powders can be used in conjunction with an anticoagulant bait, with both placed in the same station. Avoid using poison and glue traps, as these are inhumane and cause more problems than they solve. Seal any openings larger than ¼ inch with caulk, wood, mesh, or other appropriate materials. All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice.

Fur is smooth. Also, Norway rats may prey upon fish, poultry, mice, birds, small reptiles and amphibians. This is a great supplementary treatment to trapping when you are dealing with larger rodent populations, or for outdoor populations. Read more about where rats live. Roof rats can also nest on the ground if necessary. The key is to control rat populations, not individual rats. Fur is smooth. Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics.
