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.

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. 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. Tracks - Outdoors, the runways of Roof rats appear smooth, well packed, and free of vegetations. Rat control requires an integrated approach that includes non-lethal tools such as careful inspections, upgraded sanitation, and rat-proofing structures. 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. Labels will specify where and under what conditions the bait can be used. Make sure that all doors, windows and screens fit tightly in their frames and repair those that do not. This cost will vary a great deal, depending on how many repairs are needed, what part of the country you live in, how many rats are in the attic, how many service trips are necessary, if you need cleanup, etc.

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. Nests inside and under buildings, or in piles of rubbish or wood. These rodents have been known to consume tree bark, meat and grain. Having completed the repairs to wires, and possibly vacuumed feces or replaced insulation (not usually necessary) fumigate the attic to kill any remaining parasites or spores from the rats. They may be frightened by sound-producing devices for awhile but they become accustomed to constant and frequently repeated sounds quickly. The damage control methods used for roof rats are essentially the same as for Norway rats. They are very strong, and can injure your fingers. Read more about where rats live.

They may not be effective on roof rats, however, because of their usual placement. Check the traps periodically, remove any dead trapped rats, and reset the traps. For further information see Norway Rats. No chemical repellents are specifically registered for rat control. It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing. Rats, like mice, are omnivorous rodents. They are sometimes found living in rice fields or around poultry or other farm buildings as well as in industrial sites where food and shelter are available.
