Rats : How to Get Rid of Rats

The most common types of rats we have in the USA are the Norway Rat and the Roof Rat. A quick look at the habits of both will help you understand how to inspect and control the rat population.

1. First Step for Rat Control is Sanitation, Inspection and Exclusion

Inspection is the first step in getting rid of rats. After the inspection, you know where to set traps or place bait.

Exclusion of all possible entry points is the next step in rodent control to get rid of rats.Exclusion will make it difficult for the rat to enter your home or structure. Rats are easier to exclude than mice. Mice can enter an opening as little as 3/8" wide.

All openings greater that 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice. For rats, all openings greater that 1/2" should be sealed.

Please read section on Sanitation, as it is the first consideration in rodent control.

2. Next Step for Rat Control is Trapping or Baiting

Unfortunately, there is no other methods to effectively get rid of rats outside of trapping rats or placing out rodent bait.

Trapping does have some advantages over baiting. It provides an alternative for those who do not want any rodenticides.

If the rat population is small enough, trapping will yield quick results.

Finally, trapping will ensure that you can dispose of any dead rats before their odor becomes a problem in an inaccessible area.

Rodenticides are poison baits and should be used in areas where domestic animals and children can't reach.

For protection, use resistant -tamper bait stations that hold the baits in place and keep children and pets out.

It is a national law and guideline to use resistant-tamper proof bait stations in areas where children or pets could access.

We carry single feeding bait(requires just one feeding for a lethal dose.

The baits come in pellets, meal, blox or block forms.
