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.

Always be sure that fresh bait is available continuously until rats stop feeding. 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. Many rats may cache or hoard considerable amounts of solid food, which they eat later. The efficacy of such products for rats is generally lacking. It is unlikely, however, they will be any more effective for roof rats than for Norway rats. They move faster than Norway rats and are very agile climbers, which enables them to quickly escape predators. They need not be baited. In most of our urban areas, Norway rats may be seen scurrying around after dark looking for food in garbage cans and other places where human refuse is found.

Roof rats range along the lower half of the East Coast and throughout the Gulf States upward into Arkansas. Only after you've sealed the openings shut, you should start trapping and removal. Read more about where rats live. Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species. Landscaped residential or industrial areas provide good habitat, as does riparian vegetation of riverbanks and streams. While you will not reasonably be able to compensate for every possible rodent entry, you can greatly reduce the ease of entry for rodents (and thereby, reduce the population size) by taking the following measures: Other indicators can include grease marks along surfaces as well as nests. That is not the case! They sleep in your attic all day, and then at dusk they wake up, and start moving around, and that's why you hear them after dark.

They also often chew on inedible materials such as books, soap, and cans. ALWAYS USE RESPIRATORY PROTECTION WHEN REMOVING RODENT DROPPINGS. Grease marks (from the oil and dirt of rats) often appear along walls next to runways. Like the Norway rat, the roof rat is implicated in the transmission of a number of diseases to humans, including murine typhus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis (food poisoning), rat-bite fever, and plague. A mouse's tracks will be much shorter. Roof rats can be carriers of diseases. A control operation, therefore, must reduce numbers to a very low level; otherwise, rats will not only reproduce rapidly, but often quickly exceed their former density for a short period of time. Also, be careful when setting snap traps.
