PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Rat glueboards are used as a mechanical device to trap rats, mice, shrews, moles, chipmunks, flying squirrels, snakes, lizards and other small animals. They are placed in the pathways where rats are suspected to travel. When a rat walks on it, they get stuck and cannot escape. Each board is 8″ x 12″. They are large enough to catch the biggest rat. As you can see here in this picture, this is an 18 lb dog and the glueboard is plenty big to fit him!
WHERE TO USE IT: In and around businesses and homes away from pets and children. If a child or pet accidentally gets caught in the glue, use vegetable oil to get them off.
RATE OF APPLICATION: Depends on infestation. It is not uncommon to set out a board every 10-15 feet. If a rat escapes from one, you will need to use the live trap as the glueboard will no longer work.

We have roof rats – they are now down in our air conditioning vents. We hired a company to catch and seal our house for $1000 but so far they haven’t caught a single rat. We caught one that was cornered by our dogs and another in a trap we set out – they have set out 6 or 7 traps near the vents but they have just caught 3 birds. We do have bird feed in our backyard. What would you recommend – we could put some glue traps around the venting pipes, get a rat zapper, we’ve already put up a bunch of snap traps without success. Was going to try and bait without setting the trap but would like a cleaner solution as I have to get up and down off the roof to do this and I’m getting too old for that! Let me know what products would be the best to get rid of these pests – we don’t want to do bait as they may die inside our vents and walls. Thanks much for your help – please take this request seriously as my dear wife who has had a stroke cannot sleep at night listening to the rats make noises in our walls. We do have a bunch of fruit trees in our backyard as well – maybe getting a feral cat?

You have a serious problem and given the amount of work already being done, its clear you need to “step up” the effort to a more user friendly, less spooky (to the rats) option. I’m afraid glue boards won’t help your cause. And given the amount of traps currently in use or having been seen the past few weeks, I’m certain anything which exudes “tension” will be noticed and identified as something “scary”. Long story short, I think its time you employ some Zappers.
In fact Zappers are quite humane and when configured correctly, will yield efficient results. We always recommend that users first “bait” a few areas around the home with bird seed or dog food before the Zappers arrive. These areas should be where target animals will feel comfortable. In your case bird seed would be the logical option to use to establish these sites. The purpose of these “pre baiting” placements is to get a few spots where deploying the Zappers will make sense once they arrive. So the goal of the pre baiting is to help determine where the target animals want or expect to eat.
Now true, these areas could be where you already know them to be active. But trying a “new” location better suited might be smart (for example, a spot you feel confident inspecting as opposed to your roof!).
True, you might think this is “training” them to expect food. But if you can get them to expect food at specific locations, you can effectively get them to enter the Zappers too. This means you’ll effectively have more control during the “zapping” process will help to yield faster results.
Now once the Zappers arrive, setting them out without being turned on would be the nest step. Do this at least 1-2 nights. This way your targets will become comfortable feeding inside the cavity of the Zapper.
To get them to enter, place food out at the entrance and then more inside, mid way back. And after you find the food being taken, you can make a legit set by turning them “on” the third night. This will yield instant results and after that, repeat the process over and over until you don’t find anything removing the loose food you place out to get their attention.
This process might sound tedious but it’s the only sure way to insure the animals don’t develop trap shyness. This method is proven and will eliminate most any problem within 2-4 weeks. Essentially it will prove more efficient, more successful and in the end, more satisfying.
As always, we recommend using the main food they’ve been targeting as bait (in this case bird seed) but adding our Pecan Paste or Loganberry is important. In fact our Trappers Choice line of lures will attract rodents from great distances so they’re a big part of insuring fast and repeatable success. I believe our Pecan Paste would be ideal since your rodents have been feeding on nuts but if they have access to fruits too, Loganberry would probably work well too.
Now if your animals are more active outside, using a Trap Tube would be required. These protective “covers” essentially keep the Zapper protected from moisture and not surprisingly, actually “enhance” the Zappers performance. This happens because rodents like to enter “tight” spaces and the Trap Tubes help to create such an environment.
Lastly, once you can go 2 weeks or more without any new droppings or any of your placements showing signs of any animal eating the offering, you can proceed with closure (closing the entry ways). But don’t do this until you know for sure all the animals have been removed. And once all entrances have been sealed, spray the area with NNz. This will remove all rodent odor so no new rodents will find your home and want to move in.
