How to Make a Rat Trap

The young are born in a nest about 21 to 23 days after conception. 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. Like the Norway rat, the roof rat is implicated in the transmission of a number of diseases to humans, including murine typhus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis (food poisoning), rat-bite fever, and plague. Usually the peaks in breeding occur in the spring and fall. Some of the more important diseases associated with rats include Rat-Bite Fever and Leptospirosis. They are considered to be color-blind, responding only to the degree of lightness and darkness of color. They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source. As mentioned above, roof rats prefer above ground nesting locations in shrubs, trees, and dense vegetation.

Any reputable nuisance wildlife company will have spent money on licensing, liability insurance, and a host of other business expenses. Anticoagulant paraffin-type bait blocks provide an alternative to bait stations containing pelleted or loose cereal bait. Norway rats are also omnivores and will eat just about anything that is found near where humans discard food. Their keen sense of hearing also aids in their ability to detect and escape danger. Roof rats can be controlled with the same baits used for Norway rats. Certain first-generation anticoagulants are registered as tracking powders for roof rat control; however, none of the second generation materials are so registered. Also, be careful when setting snap traps. Roof rats have a strong tendency to avoid new objects in their environment and this neophobia can influence control efforts, for it may take several days before they will approach a bait station or trap.

  • Types of Rats

  • Can rats swim? Do they drown?

  • Rat Diseases

Use a powerful flashlight to spot rats and to determine travel routes for the best locations to set baits and traps. Rat treatment involves both non-chemical and chemical methods. These techniques include improving sanitation for the affected location, eliminating hiding places, exclusion and may also include lethal methods such as traps and rodenticides. These rats are primarily active at night. Roof rats are not protected by law and can be controlled any time with mechanical or chemical methods. They are nocturnal by nature and are accomplished climbers. Rats (especially Roof rats) are wary of new objects, new foods or changed in environment. They can transmit these diseases through physical contact, bites, by contamination or by fleas that are feeding on the rodent.
