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.

The Norway rat is also called brown rat, house rat, sewer rat, and wharf rat. You might find holes in walls and wood. While rats can live in the walls, the kitchen, under the house, etc. the most common place for rats to inhabit in a house is the attic. Generally, Roof rats stay within 100 miles inland. Norway rats can climb, but not as well as roof rats, and are strong swimmers. Our pest management professionals (PMPs) practice all techniques involved in Integrated Pest Management for rodents. The adequate inspection of a large facility for the presence and location of roof rats often requires a nighttime search when the facility is normally shut down. Roof rats are adept climbers and not surprisingly are apt to build their nests in locations above ground.

Urine Stains & Odors - Rodent urine deposited on rodent runways appear as a line of fine drops or streaks under an ultraviolet flashlight, or black light tool. Shooting is rarely effective by itself and should be done in conjunction with trapping or baiting programs. Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species.

Bait stations are sometimes difficult to place for roof rat control because of the rodents’ overhead traveling characteristics. Young rats generally cannot be trapped until about 1 month old. Out-of-doors, roof rats may be present in low to moderate numbers with little sign in the way of tracks or droppings or runs and burrows.
