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.

  • Building Inspection and Rat-Proofing

Killing the rats may not be the best answer (it is not as simple as just exterminating them all) . Read more about where rats live. Walk only on the wooden beams in the attic, never the sheet rock, or you could fall through the ceiling! Be careful, an attic is a hazardous place, where it can be easy to fall, or poke a roofing nail in your head. 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. Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics. They use their tails for balance while traveling along overhead utility lines. In general, glue boards are more effective for house mice than for either of the rat species. Without this knowledge, both time and money are wasted, and the chances of failure are increased.

While you are preventing future rat population growth through inspection, sanitation, and exclusion, you will also want to begin working towards elimination of the population that is already present through trapping and baiting. Read this article about how are rats getting in for more info. In landscaped yards they often live in overgrown shrubbery or vines, feeding on ornamentals, vegetables, fruits, and nuts. Nests inside and under buildings, or in piles of rubbish or wood. At present there are three rodenticides—zinc phosphide, cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), and bromethalin—registered and available for roof rat control. Citrus trees, having very low hanging skirts, are more prone to damage because they provide rats with protection. Rodents sniff out the bait and return to feed upon it continuously until the poison kills them. 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.

  • Rat Diseases

  • Do rats chew on wires? Why?

  • What can rats climb?

This is why traps and bait stations may be avoided for a day or two. Rats are responsible for the spread of many diseases. Hundreds may be nesting in a city block-in underground burrows, in sewers, on roofs, inside buildings-with few people in the area realizing it. 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. Indoors, runways appear as clean paths through dust or dirt. Rats will also drag their tails, leaving a mark between their feet tracks. Trapping Trichinosis may be contracted through eating undercooked meat of animals that have fed on rats.
