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. Once we have permanently sealed up all the holes, typically with heavy steel mesh or metal plating that rats can’t chew through, then we can start the Vineland rodent trapping process.
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.

For the characteristics of the various anticoagulant rodenticides see Norway Rats.
Roof rats range along the lower half of the East Coast and throughout the Gulf States upward into Arkansas.
They have coarse, brown fur, with lighter fur on the undersides.
Most commercial baits are registered for both species of rats and for house mice, but often they are less acceptable to roof rats than to the other species.
The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors.
Within a year, one female may be responsible for up to 40 new rodents.
Traps should be placed flush with walls in areas of highest travel (as determined by Inspection).
Mating generally peaks in the warmer months of the year, but may occur year round in some areas.
Unless the suitability of the rat’s habitat is destroyed by modifying the landscaping, improving sanitation, and rat-proofing, control methods must be unrelenting if they are to be effective.
Roof rats are not protected by law and can be controlled any time with mechanical or chemical methods.
It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing.
Remove pre harvest fruits or nuts that drop in backyards.
High-frequency sound-producing devices are advertised for frightening rats, but almost no research exists on their effects specifically on roof rats.
Norway rats are a common mammalian pest of rice, but sometimes roof rats also feed on newly planted seed or the seedling as it emerges.
Norway rats are also omnivores and will eat just about anything that is found near where humans discard food.
They need not be baited.
Rodents sniff out the bait and return to feed upon it continuously until the poison kills them.
These tactics have been ruled fraudulent by the FTC, and they DO NOT WORK.
Rat droppings are small, dark, cylindrically shaped, and are about one-half inch to three-fourths inch long with blunt ends.
The efficacy of such products for rats is generally lacking.
Breeding seasons vary in different areas.
The Norway rat is generally considered the most important rat in the United States.
Certain first-generation anticoagulants are registered as tracking powders for roof rat control; however, none of the second generation materials are so registered.
