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.

Roof rats can also nest on the ground if necessary. Their design makes them more rat-specific when used out-of-doors than ordinary snap traps that sometimes take birds. The damage control methods used for roof rats are essentially the same as for Norway rats. Rat guards are not without problems, however, because they may fray the insulation and cause short circuits. The fumigation of structures, truck trailers, or rail cars should only be done by a licensed pest control operator who is trained in fumigation techniques. 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. In agricultural settings, weasels, foxes, coyotes, and other predators prey on roof rats, but their take is inconsequential as a population control factor. Without this knowledge, both time and money are wasted, and the chances of failure are increased.

  • Biology of Black Rat

In urban settings, cats and owls prey on roof rats but have little if any effect on well-established populations. These can be identified by the brown smudges of grease that comes from the rat's fur, and should all be sealed to prevent future rat infestations in the attic. They are nocturnal by nature and are accomplished climbers. They also exist all along the Pacific Coast and are found on the Hawaiian Islands (Fig. Specifications may vary depending on bait manufacturer even though the active ingredient may be the same. Also, Norway rats may prey upon fish, poultry, mice, birds, small reptiles and amphibians. With lemons they may eat only the rind and leave the hanging fruit intact. They are usually a shiny black, but may vary according to diet.

The Norway rat is also called brown rat, house rat, sewer rat, and wharf rat. Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient. Grease marks are produced as the rodent travels along an edge, and the oils in their fur are deposited. This is why traps and bait stations may be avoided for a day or two. If roof rats are seen exposed, it often indicates their hiding spaces are all filled by other rats or that they have been disturbed, such as by construction. Most commercial baits are registered for both species of rats and for house mice, but often they are less acceptable to roof rats than to the other species. Their burrowing habitats include soil along building foundations, under woodpiles and other piles of debris. Bubonic Plague - the famous disease that nearly wiped out humanity during the Middle Ages was eventually traced back to parasites like fleas carried by rats.
