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.

How to keep rats out of my garden

  • Do rats make good pets?

  • Does car insurance cover rat damage?

  • Can rats swim? Do they drown?

Sometimes rats get into the kitchen area and feed on stored foods. There is less tendency to see droppings, urine, or tracks on the floor in buildings because rats may live overhead between floors, above false ceilings, or in utility spaces, and venture down to feed or obtain food. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide. 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. They prefer to live in high places, but may live in a variety of environments. Having completed the repairs to wires, and possibly vacuumed feces or replaced insulation (not usually necessary) fumigate the attic to kill any remaining parasites or spores from the rats. When droppings are seen, it is a good practice to remove those droppings and later inspect to see whether new droppings were deposited. Control of roof rat damage in agriculture represents yet another scenario.

Only construction grade materials are used. Rats are easier to exclude than mice because rats a typically larger. In sugarcane, they move into the field as the cane matures and feed on the cane stalks. Since none of these are anticoagulants, all can be used to control anticoagulant resistant populations of roof rats.

Rub Marks As rats move from one location to another, they stay close to vertical surfaces in their environment that they use to assist in their nightly navigation. When everyone is asleep and the house is quiet, the rats can be heard scurrying about. All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice. Other rat signs may also assist, but be aware that both species may be present. The product label is the law and dictates the product’s location of use and use patterns. 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. The elimination of food and water through good warehouse sanitation can do much to reduce rodent infestation.
