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.

Always be sure that fresh bait is available continuously until rats stop feeding. 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. Rat treatment involves both non-chemical and chemical methods. Roof rats are not accomplished swimmers and are not usually found in sewers. Tracks - Outdoors, the runways of Roof rats appear smooth, well packed, and free of vegetations. Store pet food in sealed containers and do not leave it out at night. Roof rats will often move into sugarcane and citrus groves. Sightings & Sounds - Since rodents are nocturnal and live secretively under normal circumstances, you can be sure that regular daytime rodent sightings indicate a heavy infestation.

Roof rats usually require water daily, though their local diet may provide an adequate amount if it is high in water content. Use proper garbage and refuse disposal containers and implement exterior sanitation programs. Fur is smooth. They may eat the bark of smaller citrus branches and girdle them. Only after you've sealed the openings shut, you should start trapping and removal. In dense populations, roof rats will establish a social hierarchy, wherein dominant males mate more than subordinate males. The whiskers and guard hairs enable the animals to travel adjacent to walls in the dark and in burrows. Becomes sexually mature between two and five months, producing four to six litters per year that consist of six to eight young each.

Sounds in the attic are often the first indication of the presence of roof rats in a residence. Bubonic plague was a scourge in Europe several times throughout history. I highly recommend snap traps, not live cage traps, certainly not glue boards, and most definitely not poison! Never poison rats, it doesn't solve the problem and it just creates more problems. Roof rats are also food hoarders, stashing supplies of food such as seeds and nuts. Where an entire warehouse may be fumigated for insect control with a material such as methyl bromide, all rats and mice that are present will be killed. As mentioned above, roof rats prefer above ground nesting locations in shrubs, trees, and dense vegetation. They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source. They prefer to live in high places, but may live in a variety of environments.
