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 South Lake Conway Villa 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.

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.
The young may continue to nurse until 4 or 5 weeks old.
Rat treatment involves both non-chemical and chemical methods.
Control methods must reflect an understanding of the roof rat’s habitat requirements, reproductive capabilities, food habits, life history, behavior, senses, movements, and the dynamics of its population structure.
Statisticians estimate that rats destroy 20 percent of the world's food supply every year by feeding, and indirectly through contamination.
Some of the more important diseases associated with rats include Rat-Bite Fever and Leptospirosis.
Use proper garbage and refuse disposal containers and implement exterior sanitation programs.
Glue boards will catch roof rats, but, like traps, they must be located on beams, rafters, and along other travel routes, making them more difficult to place effectively for roof rats than for Norway rats or house mice.
Knowledge is limited on interspecific competition between the different genera and species of rats.
Some traps should be placed on the floor, but more should be placed above floor level (for example, on top of stacked commodities).
Roof rats can be carriers of diseases.
Tracking powders play an important role in structural rodent control.
Grease marks are produced as the rodent travels along an edge, and the oils in their fur are deposited.
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.
Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species.
Rodenticides were once categorized as acute (single-dose) or chronic (multiple dose) toxicants.
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.
All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice.
Grease marks (from the oil and dirt of rats) often appear along walls next to runways.
These can be identified by the brown smudges of grease that comes from the rat's fur, and should all be sealed to prevent future rat infestations in the attic.
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.
Since none of these are anticoagulants, all can be used to control anticoagulant resistant populations of roof rats.
They are considered to be color-blind, responding only to the degree of lightness and darkness of color.
If you have rats in your home, it's very important to do the job right the first time! I have seen dozens and dozens of cases of nightmare scenarios over many years, in which homeowners have paid pest control companies for a monthly contract that never ends.
