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 Lockhart rodent trapping process.

  • Are cage traps a good option for rats?

Most information on this subject comes from populations confined in cages or outdoor pens. They prefer to live in high places, but may live in a variety of environments. These rodents have been known to consume tree bark, meat and grain. From causing plague epidemics (the "Black Death" of Europe) to rat-bite fever, whether feeding on stored grain or gnawing electric wires, rats are enemies of humankind. Indoor nests usually are constructed in insulation such as in attics. A rat does not want to be exposed to danger outside for very long! If you think you can just seal shut the entry holes into the house during the daylight when they are outside, that is incorrect. Since roof rats rarely dig burrows, burrow fumigants are of limited use; however, if they have constructed burrows, then fumigants that are effective on Norway rats, such as aluminum phosphide and gas cartridges, will be effective on roof rats. Most information on this subject comes from populations confined in cages or outdoor pens.

Traps may be nailed to beams or studs and secured to pipes with wires. Newer rodenticides are much more efficacious and have resulted in the phasing out of these older materials over the last 20 years. In some agricultural areas, roof rats cause significant losses of tree crops such as citrus and avocados and, to a lesser extent, walnuts, almonds, and other nuts. Unfortunately, the rat’s great adaptability to varying environmental conditions can sometimes make this information elusive. Historically, infected fleas have transmitted serious plagues from rats to humans. Rodenticides were once categorized as acute (single-dose) or chronic (multiple dose) toxicants. Snap traps are actually the very best way to do it. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide.

  • Rats: How to Get Rid of Rats for Good!

Should Norway rats infest a structure, they most likely will live in the basement or ground floor. These rodents have been known to consume tree bark, meat and grain. 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. If living under a refrigerator or freezer, they may disable the unit by gnawing the electrical wires. 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. That is very costly! Do the job ONCE by a wildlife operator, NOT A PEST CONTROL COMPANY, get it done, and you'll be rat-free forever. In food-processing and storage facilities, they will feed on nearly all food items, though their food preferences may differ from those of Norway rats. In some situations in which the rats have been eliminated, cats that are good hunters may prevent reinfestation.
