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.

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.

Rickettsial Diseases - various forms of Typhus fall into this category and can also be carried by rat-borne parasites. Where an entire warehouse may be fumigated for insect control with a material such as methyl bromide, all rats and mice that are present will be killed. Pesticides must be registered for rat control by federal and/or state authorities and used in accordance with label directions. Rats, like mice, are omnivorous rodents. At about 3 months of age they are completely independent of the mother and are reproductively mature. They also often chew on inedible materials such as books, soap, and cans. Emphasis should be placed on the removal of as much harborage as is practical. Without this knowledge, both time and money are wasted, and the chances of failure are increased.

The young are able to breed before they are four months old. Sounds in the attic are often the first indication of the presence of roof rats in a residence. Roof rats have hairless, scaly tails that are longer than their heads and bodies. Norway rats can climb, but not as well as roof rats, and are strong swimmers. In dense populations, roof rats will establish a social hierarchy, wherein dominant males mate more than subordinate males. Other indicators can include grease marks along surfaces as well as nests. If you have rats in your home, it's very important to do the job right the first time! I have seen dozens and dozens of cases of nightmare scenarios over many years, in which homeowners have paid pest control companies for a monthly contract that never ends. They are particularly useful for house mouse control in situations where other methods seem less appropriate.

Roof rats usually require water daily, though their local diet may provide an adequate amount if it is high in water content. Norway rats are also polygamous and form colonies of many males and females. These devices must be viewed with considerable skepticism, because research has not proven them effective. Rats may live up to three years, but a lifespan of one and a half years is more common. Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything. The first and most crucial thing is to inspect the house and find all possible entry holes, and before starting any trapping, carry out repairs and seal the attic so the rats can't get in again. They also feed on a variety of vegetative parts of ornamental and native plant materials. Eliminate vines growing on buildings and, when feasible, overhanging tree limbs that may be used as travel routes.
