  • What Are Rats?

There is often a correlation between rat problems and the keeping of dogs, especially where dogs are fed outdoors. Because roof rats are fast and agile, they are not easy prey for mammalian or avian predators. Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences. Rub marks - rats get coated with dirt and they like to rub against the walls to find their way around a room’s perimeter, since they can't see so well. Body is smaller and sleeker than the Norway rat’s. Rodent-infested pallets of goods can be tarped and fumigated on an individual or collective basis. 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. From causing plague epidemics (the "Black Death" of Europe) to rat-bite fever, whether feeding on stored grain or gnawing electric wires, rats are enemies of humankind.

Hundreds may be nesting in a city block-in underground burrows, in sewers, on roofs, inside buildings-with few people in the area realizing it. In the third week they begin to take solid food. Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures. A control operation, therefore, must reduce numbers to a very low level; otherwise, rats will not only reproduce rapidly, but often quickly exceed their former density for a short period of time. Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed. Use proper garbage and refuse disposal containers and implement exterior sanitation programs. The damage control methods used for roof rats are essentially the same as for Norway rats. Some traps should be placed on the floor, but more should be placed above floor level (for example, on top of stacked commodities).

  • What is the best bait to trap a rat?

Only after you've sealed the openings shut, you should start trapping and removal. The damage control methods used for roof rats are essentially the same as for Norway rats. Grease marks are produced as the rodent travels along an edge, and the oils in their fur are deposited. The advantages of trapping when compared to baiting include: 1) Trapping does not require the use of harmful poisons; 2) Trapping allows the user to know whether the rat was killed, whereas with baiting the rat will wander off and die somewhere else; 3) Trapping eliminates odor problems by allowing you to dispose of the rat carcass. There are several other types of lethal traps, including the crocodile trap, which has teeth that close on the rat, and even gas chamber traps. Nests and Burrows - check behind shelves, boxes, behind the fridge, anywhere that a rat might like to use as a hiding space. All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice. In food-storage facilities, the most prominent sign may be smudge marks, the result of oil and dirt rubbing off of their fur as they travel along their aerial routes.
