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 University Park 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.

Roof rats have a strong tendency to avoid new objects in their environment and this neophobia can influence control efforts, for it may take several days before they will approach a bait station or trap. The social behavior of free-living roof rats is very difficult to study and, as a result, has received less attention than that of Norway rats. The underside of the roof rat’s body is grayish to white. 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. Rats rely more on their keen senses of smell, taste, touch, and hearing than on vision. Also, be careful when setting snap traps. It is unlikely, however, they will be any more effective for roof rats than for Norway rats. In tree crops, some cultural practices can be helpful.

The young are able to breed before they are four months old. Their design makes them more rat-specific when used out-of-doors than ordinary snap traps that sometimes take birds.

Within a population, some rats will be easy to control, some difficult. If roof rats are seen exposed, it often indicates their hiding spaces are all filled by other rats or that they have been disturbed, such as by construction.

In tree crops, some cultural practices can be helpful. At about 3 months of age they are completely independent of the mother and are reproductively mature. Certain first-generation anticoagulants are registered as tracking powders for roof rat control; however, none of the second generation materials are so registered. Where legal and not hazardous, shooting of roof rats is effective at dusk as they travel along utility lines. In most instances, rats are very wary. Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways. Adult roof rats usually live about one year. Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control.
