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.

In homes, the attic and garage rafters close to the infestation are the best trapping sites. Dense shrubbery, vine-covered trees and fences, and vine ground cover make ideal harborage for roof rats. The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors. Rats have been plaguing humans for centuries, famous for their continuously-growing sharp teeth, their desire for human food, their tendency to get into homes and buildings and create nests and their health problems - rats are the essence of a pest. 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. 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. Let the rat control professionals go to work for you! We will get rid of rats in your house or business! Snap traps are actually the very best way to do it.

The underside of the roof rat’s body is grayish to white. Their design makes them more rat-specific when used out-of-doors than ordinary snap traps that sometimes take birds. Exclusion is an important rodent control technique. A vegetation-free margin around the grove will slow rat invasions because rats are more susceptible to predation when crossing unfamiliar open areas. Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences. These kill traps are often baited with whole nuts and are most useful in trapping rats in trees. The common wooden snap traps that are effective for Norway rats are effective for roof rats. Please also read the section on Sanitation, as it is an important consideration in rodent control.

Proper ladder safety is a must, as is roof safety. The young are able to breed before they are four months old. Trapping is an effective alternative to pesticides and recommended in some situations. Grease marks are produced as the rodent travels along an edge, and the oils in their fur are deposited. Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption. These can be identified by the brown smudges of grease that comes from the rat's fur, and should all be sealed to prevent future rat infestations in the attic. 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. The efficacy of such products for rats is generally lacking.
