  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Nevada's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Nevada's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Clark county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Mesquite animal control for wildlife issues.

Mesquite Wildlife Removal Tip: What is the best bait to trap a rat?

A rat nesting in your house portends a great discomfort to you and your family. While the process of trapping them can be pretty straightforward, the baits to use pose the biggest of headaches for any one person trying to trap the rats.

Type of rats in your house

Different rat species eat different types of food. Successful baiting will therefore include identifying what type of rat inhabit s your house before setting the traps.

Black rats which are also known as house rats is small, only about 12 inches from tip of the nose to the tip of the tail. Their tails are usually seen to be longer than their bodies. They have black appearance due to the black fur covering their bodies. The ears are large and the nose pointed. The black is herbivorous and thrives on plants. For these rats baits that would work best include;

1. Berries.
2. Dried fruits.
3. Snails and snail shells.
4. Peanut butter.
5. Common nesting materials.

The brown rat, also known as the Norway rat is mostly found in temperate climates. They are relatively larger than the black rats and measure 16 inches from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail. They possess brown or greyish-brown fur with small ears and decidedly blunt noses. Unlike the black rat, they have tails that are shorter than the rest of the bodies and have an obvious preference for lower locations like basements and ground floors. They are decidedly omnivorous and therefore would work with both vegetative and fleshy baits. For them, the following baits would work best,

6. Bacon.
7. Dried fruits.
8. Peanut butter.
9. Gumdrops.
10. Common nesting materials.

It is advisable to use the same bait repeatedly since rats have an aversion to the introduction of new food.

Best ways to place the baits

Using the baits can be a tricky situation. You might use the right bait but the rats won't eat into the bats and therefore won't be trapped either. Here's how to use the bait best.

11. Let the rats have a taste of the bait before actual trapping is done
12. Only use smelly bait
13. Cut the bait into long thin strips which are preferable to the rats
14. Use small baits.
15. Make sure to use rat attractants and lures in small amounts.


Baiting is essential for trapping of rats to be successful. Importance should therefore be placed on the baiting process to avoid escape of the rats or repelling from the traps.
