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 University Park rodent trapping process.

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.

At present there are three rodenticides—zinc phosphide, cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), and bromethalin—registered and available for roof rat control. Any reputable nuisance wildlife company will have spent money on licensing, liability insurance, and a host of other business expenses. Cage trapping is often considered to be the most humane way of dealing with an animal problem, and certainly when it comes to larger animals it is fair to say that it can be effective. For rats, all openings greater than 1/2" should be sealed. They use their keen sense of smell to locate and select food items, identify territories and travel routes, and recognize other rats, especially those of the opposite sex. Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces. Trap at left is modified by fastening a piece of cardboard to expand its trigger size (traps with expanded treadles can also be purchased from several manufacturers). Rats have been plaguing humans for centuries, famous for their continuously-growing sharp teeth, their desire for human food, their tendency to get into homes and buildings and create nests and their health problems - rats are the essence of a pest.

For the characteristics of the various anticoagulant rodenticides see Norway Rats. No chemical repellents are specifically registered for rat control. Also, roof rats are likely to consume insects. Where label instructions permit, small blocks can be placed or fastened on rafters, ledges, or even attached to tree limbs, where they are readily accessible to the arboreal rats. Most pest control companies set rat traps, perhaps squirt some flammable expansion foam at very obvious holes, and then put you on a monthly service to remove the rats that are still getting in to your home. The 5 to 8 young in the litter develop rapidly, growing hair within a week. Trap at left is modified by fastening a piece of cardboard to expand its trigger size (traps with expanded treadles can also be purchased from several manufacturers). Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption.

Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways. Rats rely more on their keen senses of smell, taste, touch, and hearing than on vision. 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. We service 99% of the USA. Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces. They are very strong, and can injure your fingers. Eliminate vines growing on buildings and, when feasible, overhanging tree limbs that may be used as travel routes. POISON IS A HORRIBLE IDEA FOR MANY MANY REASONS - poison won't solve the problem, and it'll just create more problems.
