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.

  • What should I do with a rat after I catch it?

Roof rats are highly adaptable. Roof rats are not accomplished swimmers and are not usually found in sewers. Use proper garbage and refuse disposal containers and implement exterior sanitation programs. In rare instances, isolated populations are found in areas not within their normal distribution range in the United States. Without this knowledge, both time and money are wasted, and the chances of failure are increased. Look for fresh droppings. Some traps should be placed on the floor, but more should be placed above floor level (for example, on top of stacked commodities). Rats can squeeze into a hole the size of a quarter.

Their keen sense of hearing also aids in their ability to detect and escape danger. However, when a Norway rat population grows so large that competition from other rats for food, water and harborage increases, some members of the rat community may seek to find new areas to colonize during the daytime. 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. Elsewhere, reports indicate that roof rats are slowly disappearing from localized areas for no apparent reason. Tracking powders are used much less often for roof rats than for Norway rats because roof rats frequent overhead areas within buildings. In tropical or semi tropical regions, the season may be nearly year-round. There are two basic methods of rat population reduction: Rodent-proofing against roof rats usually requires more time to find entry points than for Norway rats because of their greater climbing ability.

Roof rats are adept climbers and not surprisingly are apt to build their nests in locations above ground. Only construction grade materials are used. Wire-mesh, live traps (Tomahawk®, Havahart®) are available for trapping rats. Roof rats are more aerial than Norway rats in their habitat selection and often live in trees or on vine-covered fences. 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. You will know the bait is working when the bait is no longer being consumed. Landscaped residential or industrial areas provide good habitat, as does riparian vegetation of riverbanks and streams.
