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 are more aerial than Norway rats in their habitat selection and often live in trees or on vine-covered fences. The traditional style snap traps are still among the best ways of dealing with a rat problem, and these are simple to set and bait, and you should look to place them in areas where the rats are active, so where you can see feces and smudges on the walls. Roof rats can be controlled with the same baits used for Norway rats. 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. Control of roof rat damage in agriculture represents yet another scenario. If you need to hire professional help, you can call us. Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything. Both roof rats and Norway rats have a well-developed sense of smell and are wary of new things that are introduced into their home range.

Avoid using poison and glue traps, as these are inhumane and cause more problems than they solve. The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors. Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource. These tactics have been ruled fraudulent by the FTC, and they DO NOT WORK. Distinctions must be made as to which rodenticide (registered product) to use, the method of application or placement, and the amount of bait to apply. Roof rats are likely to found in coastal, near-coastal areas and port cities. Female adults will produce about seven litters per year and will mate again about 18 hours after giving birth to her litter of about eight pups. Avoid using poison and glue traps, as these are inhumane and cause more problems than they solve.
