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.

However, rats are a nuisance animal wherever you choose to release them, and they also have a particularly low rate of survival once they have been relocated, so in most cases using humane lethal traps will be the best way to deal with the infestation. These diseases often share similar symptoms, and medical professionals must perform the proper diagnoses. Products sold as general animal repellents, based on taste and/or odor, are sometimes advertised to repel animals, including rats, from garbage bags. 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. Then they return to the attic. Scientists have noted that the roof rat’s long tail is adapted to enhance their ability to climb and functions to assists them in balancing. The young may continue to nurse until 4 or 5 weeks old. Rats (especially Roof rats) are wary of new objects, new foods or changed in environment.

Rats (especially Roof rats) are wary of new objects, new foods or changed in environment. Snap traps are actually the very best way to do it. The elimination of food and water through good warehouse sanitation can do much to reduce rodent infestation. Some of the first-generation anticoagulants (pindone and warfarin) are available as soluble rodenticides from which water baits can be prepared. They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source. I'm not going to go into detail about harnesses and chicken ladders and such, but be careful! Then, when in the attic, wear a respirator - you don't want to breathe in fiberglass insulation, dust or mold, or the variety of diseases associated with rats. 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. They are considered to be color-blind, responding only to the degree of lightness and darkness of color.

Most of the states in the US interior are free of roof rats, but isolated infestations, probably stemming from infested cargo shipments, can occur. Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything. They may try to sell you poison stations for exterior rat control, however the rats only find their way back into your attic or walls to die. Fur is smooth. A new second-generation anticoagulant, difethialone, is presently being developed and EPA registration is anticipated in the near future. They also feed on a variety of vegetative parts of ornamental and native plant materials. In agricultural settings, weasels, foxes, coyotes, and other predators prey on roof rats, but their take is inconsequential as a population control factor. Roof Rats are predominate in coastal areas.
