Rat Trapping Tips

  • One advantage of trapping is easy verification that the rat is actually captured.
  • The key to success when trapping is being aggressive and placing several rat traps where the rats are active.
  • To lure the rat to the trap, use an attractant such as Provoke Rat Attractant by placing it on the trap.

Rat Baiting Tips

  • Place rat bait in tamper resistant rat bait stations throughout the rat infested area, spacing 30 to 60 feet apart.
  • The EPA requires that bait be placed in tamper resistant bait stations to protect people and unintended animals from accidentally eating the bait.
  • Rats continue their normal activity until the bait takes affect, so it is not possible to determine where it will die.
  • Bait is like food to rats so they seek it.

Rodent Inspection

It is very important to inspect rodent activity before beginning any rodent control program. We carry UV black light and non-toxic tracking powder for easy inspection.

Rat Exclusion

Exclusion by blocking structural entry points with copper mesh is typically used in combination with trapping and baiting for maximum effect.
