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.

Products sold as general animal repellents, based on taste and/or odor, are sometimes advertised to repel animals, including rats, from garbage bags. 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. In residences where rats may be living in the attic and feeding outdoors, the damage may be restricted to tearing up insulation for nesting or gnawing electrical wiring. Tracking powders can be placed in voids behind walls, near points of entry, and in well-defined trails. Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control. It is difficult to find suitable places to lay the tracking powder that will not create a potential problem of contaminating food or materials below the placement sites. In general, glue boards are more effective for house mice than for either of the rat species. Rats are responsible for the spread of many diseases.

The most common rat in the area is the Norway rat. Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption. Glue boards will catch roof rats, but, like traps, they must be located on beams, rafters, and along other travel routes, making them more difficult to place effectively for roof rats than for Norway rats or house mice. Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits. Some of their habitats include garbage dumps, sewers and fields. Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces. Sometimes they transmit disease indirectly, for example, when fleas first bite an infected rat, then a person. Rat removal expert’s rat control technicians are properly trained in how to get rid of rats and the elimination of rat problems using a variety of rat control techniques.

Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control. 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. The roof rat is more at home in warm climates, and apparently less adaptable, than the Norway rat, which is why it has not spread throughout the country. Eliminate vines growing on buildings and, when feasible, overhanging tree limbs that may be used as travel routes. Your inspection process must include ladder work and climbing on a roof. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide. The total cost will probably run between $300 - $500 to remove all the rats and seal the entry holes shut, and it may seem more up-front than a low monthly deal, but you've got to do it right, and then you won't have to worry about rats any more. Historically, infected fleas have transmitted serious plagues from rats to humans.
