Use a powerful flashlight to spot rats and to determine travel routes for the best locations to set baits and traps. Bubonic plague was a scourge in Europe several times throughout history. Grease marks (from the oil and dirt of rats) often appear along walls next to runways. Therefore, the body oils on a rat’s fur gets deposited on corners and edges of walls and around holes and gaps they use to enter into a wall void. Mating may occur year round in locations where the environmental conditions are sufficient. In some situations, pet food and poorly managed garbage may represent a major food resource. These kill traps are often baited with whole nuts and are most useful in trapping rats in trees. Some type of clean food can be used to entice the rats to the boxes, or the tracking powders can be used in conjunction with an anticoagulant bait, with both placed in the same station.

Exclusion is an important rodent control technique. Baiting - This method uses poisons, or rodenticides, to attract and kill rodents. To prevent a colony from nesting in your home, make sure that all the windows and vents are screened. Timing a sealup for rats is impossible, because they leave for short periods, and they don't all leave at the same time of night. The more dominant individuals occupy the better habitats and feed whenever they like, whereas the less fortunate individuals may have to occupy marginal habitat and feed when the more dominant rats are not present.
