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.

Store pet food in sealed containers and do not leave it out at night.
They may also enter through ill-fitted doors, windows, or screens, and air vents that are not in sound or working order.
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.
When droppings are seen, it is a good practice to remove those droppings and later inspect to see whether new droppings were deposited.
Norway rats and the roof rats are very different in their habits, habitats and behavior, so the first requirement of a rat treatment program is to correctly identify the rat and develop a treatment plan that works for that species.
In food-processing and food-storage facilities, roof rats do about the same type of damage as Norway rats, and damage is visually hard to differentiate.
Roof rats can be carriers of diseases.
The advantages of trapping when compared to baiting include: 1) Trapping does not require the use of harmful poisons; 2) Trapping allows the user to know whether the rat was killed, whereas with baiting the rat will wander off and die somewhere else; 3) Trapping eliminates odor problems by allowing you to dispose of the rat carcass.
For the characteristics of the various anticoagulant rodenticides see Norway Rats.
All anticoagulants provide excellent roof rat control when prepared in acceptable baits.
The elimination of food and water through good warehouse sanitation can do much to reduce rodent infestation.
Females can breed year-round.
I'm not going to go into detail about harnesses and chicken ladders and such, but be careful! Then, when in the attic, wear a respirator - you don't want to breathe in fiberglass insulation, dust or mold, or the variety of diseases associated with rats.
Once you're satisfied that there is no more evidence of rats, and you are not trapping any new rats, you should clean the attic or whatever area they were living in, to remove the contamination and biohazard, and also to eliminate the rat scent, which will attract new rats to try to chew their way into the house in the future.
They move faster than Norway rats and are very agile climbers, which enables them to quickly escape predators.
They also consume seeds, nuts, berries, and insects.
No, they sleep in the attic all day.
Out-of-doors, roof rats may be present in low to moderate numbers with little sign in the way of tracks or droppings or runs and burrows.
Mating generally peaks in the warmer months of the year, but may occur year round in some areas.
It is recommended for use in homes because, unlike with poison baits, there is no risk of a rat dying in an inaccessible place and creating an odor problem.
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.
Rat treatment involves both non-chemical and chemical methods.
Shooting is rarely effective by itself and should be done in conjunction with trapping or baiting programs.
While they may not kill the stalk outright, secondary organisms generally invade and reduce the sugar quality.
