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.

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.

How to get rats out of a wall

  • What are the types of rat snap traps?

Rats (especially Roof rats) are wary of new objects, new foods or changed in environment. The reproductive potential of one female Norway rat is about 50-60 young per year. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide. Sounds in the attic are often the first indication of the presence of roof rats in a residence. The first and most crucial thing is to inspect the house and find all possible entry holes, and before starting any trapping, carry out repairs and seal the attic so the rats can't get in again. Severe pruning and/or removal of certain ornamentals are often required to obtain a degree of lasting rat control. 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. Adults range in weight from about 5-10 ounces.

Rats (Rattus spp. Eliminate vines growing on buildings and, when feasible, overhanging tree limbs that may be used as travel routes. For best results, try several baits to find out which one rats consume most. In some agricultural areas, roof rats cause significant losses of tree crops such as citrus and avocados and, to a lesser extent, walnuts, almonds, and other nuts. Inspection is an important first step in getting rid of rats. They use their tails for balance while traveling along overhead utility lines. In agricultural settings, weasels, foxes, coyotes, and other predators prey on roof rats, but their take is inconsequential as a population control factor. Generally, a few more feedings are necessary to produce death with the first-generation anticoagulants (warfarin, pindone, diphacinone, and chlorophacinone) but this is less significant with the second-generation anticoagulants (bromadiolone and brodifacoum).

Successful long-term rat control is not simple. Certain first-generation anticoagulants are registered as tracking powders for roof rat control; however, none of the second generation materials are so registered. Sounds in the attic are often the first indication of the presence of roof rats in a residence. Grease marks (from the oil and dirt of rats) often appear along walls next to runways. Disturbances such as habitat modifications should be avoided until the population is under control. They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source. The older rodenticides, formerly referred to as acute toxicants, such as arsenic, phosphorus, red squill, and ANTU, are either no longer registered or of little importance in rat control. Where anticoagulant resistance is known or suspected, the use of first-generation anticoagulants should be avoided in favor of the second-generation anticoagulants or one of the non anticoagulant rodenticides like bromethalin or cholecalciferol.
