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.

Are rats dangerous to cats, dogs, or other pets?

  • Rat Diseases

Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways. Leptospirosis - a disease transmitted from contact with rat urine that is serious enough to cause humans to bleed in the lungs. If you've sealed the house correctly, then you shouldn't trap any new rats after just the first three days. If you have heard noises in your walls or attic, chances are you have rats. If you do it wrong the first time, you'll just end up paying more later. ALWAYS USE RESPIRATORY PROTECTION WHEN REMOVING RODENT DROPPINGS. 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 reproductive potential of one female Norway rat is about 50-60 young per year.

Pocket gopher box-type traps (such as the DK-2 Gopher Getter) can be modified to catch rats by reversing the action of the trigger. At about 3 months of age they are completely independent of the mother and are reproductively mature. In a human environment, the rodents will consume almost any food to which they have access. I highly recommend snap traps, not live cage traps, certainly not glue boards, and most definitely not poison! Never poison rats, it doesn't solve the problem and it just creates more problems. Rub marks - rats get coated with dirt and they like to rub against the walls to find their way around a room’s perimeter, since they can't see so well. Roof rats are susceptible to all of the various anticoagulant rodenticides, but less so than Norway rats. A few baits are strong enough to cause death with a single feeding. While rats can live in the walls, the kitchen, under the house, etc. the most common place for rats to inhabit in a house is the attic.

For the characteristics of the various anticoagulant rodenticides see Norway Rats. Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control. Rodents sniff out the bait and return to feed upon it continuously until the poison kills them. Prune to raise the skirts and remove any nests constructed in the trees. As mentioned above, roof rats prefer above ground nesting locations in shrubs, trees, and dense vegetation. Adults range in weight from about 5-10 ounces. There are holes all over - missing roof vent screens, plumbing stacks, gaps between the roof and fascia board, gaps in the siding, areas where pipes go into the house, etc. Pelleted or loose cereal anticoagulant baits are used extensively in tamper-resistant bait boxes or stations for a permanent baiting program for Norway rats and house mice.
