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. Once we have permanently sealed up all the holes, typically with heavy steel mesh or metal plating that rats can’t chew through, then we can start the Lockhart rodent trapping process.

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.

Raisins, prunes, peanut butter, nutmeats, and gumdrops make good baits and are often better than meat or cat food baits. 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. Remove pre harvest fruits or nuts that drop in backyards. They prefer to live in high places, but may live in a variety of environments. In some situations in which the rats have been eliminated, cats that are good hunters may prevent reinfestation. Check the repairs you've done, to make sure no new areas have been chewed open. 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. Okay, the first and most important thing you have to do is find out how rats are getting into the building.

Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control. In some situations in which the rats have been eliminated, cats that are good hunters may prevent reinfestation. There's nothing fun about finding rats around your home or property. 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. Rat control requires an integrated approach that includes non-lethal tools such as careful inspections, upgraded sanitation, and rat-proofing structures. That is very costly! Do the job ONCE by a wildlife operator, NOT A PEST CONTROL COMPANY, get it done, and you'll be rat-free forever. For a one-time fee, we trap and remove all rats, and identify and reconstruct all rat entry points. They have coarse, brown fur, with lighter fur on the undersides.

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

Trim all tree branches to further prevent entry. The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors. Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions. Severe pruning and/or removal of certain ornamentals are often required to obtain a degree of lasting rat control. 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. Since roof rats rarely dig burrows, burrow fumigants are of limited use; however, if they have constructed burrows, then fumigants that are effective on Norway rats, such as aluminum phosphide and gas cartridges, will be effective on roof rats. They have also been found living in sewer systems, but this is not common. It will get rid of the rats by making it difficult for them to enter the home or structure.
