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 Palmer Trailer 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.

Rats (especially Roof rats) are wary of new objects, new foods or changed in environment.
Caution should be taken to avoid trapping nontarget species such as tree squirrels.
In agricultural settings, weasels, foxes, coyotes, and other predators prey on roof rats, but their take is inconsequential as a population control factor.
A new second-generation anticoagulant, difethialone, is presently being developed and EPA registration is anticipated in the near future.
Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species.
In tropical or semi tropical regions, the season may be nearly year-round.
Trap at left is modified by fastening a piece of cardboard to expand its trigger size (traps with expanded treadles can also be purchased from several manufacturers).
They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source.
METHOD OF CONTROL: First of all, mothballs or ammonia won't make them leave, nor will ultrasonic sound emitters or strobe lights.
These devices must be viewed with considerable skepticism, because research has not proven them effective.
Without this knowledge, both time and money are wasted, and the chances of failure are increased.
Tracking powders are used much less often for roof rats than for Norway rats because roof rats frequent overhead areas within buildings.
Then the rats should be trapped and removed.
Roof rats can be carriers of diseases.
Always be sure that fresh bait is available continuously until rats stop feeding.
Rats will also drag their tails, leaving a mark between their feet tracks.
Roof rats are also food hoarders, stashing supplies of food such as seeds and nuts.
Like the Norway rat, the roof rat is implicated in the transmission of a number of diseases to humans, including murine typhus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis (food poisoning), rat-bite fever, and plague.
Other rat signs may also assist, but be aware that both species may be present.
In most of our urban areas, Norway rats may be seen scurrying around after dark looking for food in garbage cans and other places where human refuse is found.
Adult roof rats usually live about one year.
Once you are confident that you have caught all of the rats that are in the attic, then it will be time to check for any insulation or wires in the attic that need to be replaced, and for any nesting material to remove, and feces to clean up.
Wire-mesh, live traps (Tomahawk®, Havahart®) are available for trapping rats.
