What are Rats?

  • Do rats dig holes? Do they burrow under houses? How deep?

  • What is the best bait to trap a rat?

  • Rat Proofing

Neophobia is more pronounced in roof rats than in Norway rats. If rats are seen during the day that usually means a very large rodent population is nearby. Avoid using poison and glue traps, as these are inhumane and cause more problems than they solve. They lead you to believe there is no other rat control solution. Rats are nocturnal and are not commonly seen. The only way to solve a rat or mouse problem is to find every last point of entry into the house, and seal it shut. Roof rats entering homes are generally found in raised or secure enclosures such as walls, cabinets, attics, and false ceilings. Roof rats are polygamous and group themselves into colonies of multiple males and females.

It will get rid of the rats by making it difficult for them to enter the home or structure. Roof Rats are predominate in coastal areas. Should Norway rats infest a structure, they most likely will live in the basement or ground floor.
