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.

Roof rats can also nest on the ground if necessary. Their design makes them more rat-specific when used out-of-doors than ordinary snap traps that sometimes take birds. They are often found living on the second floor of a warehouse in which Norway rats occupy the first or basement floor. In food-storage facilities, the most prominent sign may be smudge marks, the result of oil and dirt rubbing off of their fur as they travel along their aerial routes. Tracking powders can be placed in voids behind walls, near points of entry, and in well-defined trails. Adult females are able to reproduce at 3-5 months old, can produce up to five litters each year with about 5-8 young in each litter. The great adaptability of rats to human-created environments and the high fertility rate of rats make for quick recuperation of their populations. These kill traps are often baited with whole nuts and are most useful in trapping rats in trees.

Also, Norway rats may prey upon fish, poultry, mice, birds, small reptiles and amphibians. If you have heard noises in your walls or attic, chances are you have rats. Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource. They may be frightened by sound-producing devices for awhile but they become accustomed to constant and frequently repeated sounds quickly. Other vegetable, melon, berry, and fruit crops occasionally suffer relatively minor damage when adjacent to infested habitat such as riparian vegetation. Rats usually begin searching for food shortly after sunset. When droppings are seen, it is a good practice to remove those droppings and later inspect to see whether new droppings were deposited. Parks with natural and artificial ponds, or reservoirs may also be infested.

Rat droppings are small, dark, cylindrically shaped, and are about one-half inch to three-fourths inch long with blunt ends. In food-storage facilities, the most prominent sign may be smudge marks, the result of oil and dirt rubbing off of their fur as they travel along their aerial routes. The fumigation of structures, truck trailers, or rail cars should only be done by a licensed pest control operator who is trained in fumigation techniques. Within a population, some rats will be easy to control, some difficult. They often eat all the pulp from oranges while the fruit is still hanging on the tree, leaving only the empty rind. Roof rats are prodigious breeders. Specifications may vary depending on bait manufacturer even though the active ingredient may be the same. Rats tend to segregate themselves socially in both space and time.
