I have about 50 under boldere in the park behind my house... They walk all over my fence & house.. they love the green professional rat poison. Took them as fast put them out. But didn't reduce population. Made bair cups & they won't go near it. Glue traps work if they accidentally hit one but they've gotten so smart they roll them till they get loose.

Can you please tell me the ingredients you useto make the poison, Puerto Rican Rats are so smart,I try the green balls they didn't work I purchase an expensive mouse trap and nothing I felt like the rat is laughing.

I need your help. I have been killing these damn rats for a year. Last night they broke into my rat poison and they ate the whole bag. I kept smelling rat piss all night and the stench kept me up all night. Can you help?
116falconer (1 month ago)
Well hopefully they're all dead BUT I read that they can quickly become immune to the run of the mill poisons. Apparently there are a few different poisons that attack different parts of the rat, it's trial by error.

Wondering if anyone who has issues with rats can try this experiment in the name of science ... After seeing several videos on different homemade rat poison recepies, I am reminded of a video for a different problem that might offer an effective solution which I haven't heard anyone else mention. I once saw a YouTube video on how to create a bed bug trap (link below). The first part of it makes a mixture of one packet of yeast with a cup of sugar and water which causes it to foam up. I'm just thinking that if you make a dry rat recepie which includes the sugar and the yeast. Maybe when rats eat the mix, the ingredients will mixe with the moisture in the rat's stomach; it will begin the same type of chemical reaction. It will foam-up in their stomachs and die in minutes. I thought a tablet of Alkaseltzer might be similar, but the reaction would be to fast or not attract them; but sugar and yeast are food items; and have a delayed reaction to less than 10 minutes.

None of your traps work because you touch them with your bare hands the rats can smell your human body oils on them and which is why it jumped away from the snaptrap.

Read the article: MYTHOLOGY OF VERTEBRATE PEST CONTROL BY WILLIAM D. FITZWATER. Fitzwater did a test on plaster of paris. This method does not work! And if you don't believe this, I've tried it personally myself, it does not work!!!
mlewsimpson51 (3 months ago)
Also try (as in previous video - google it) - equal parts baking soda + sugar or coco mix + flour or corn meal ... mix. set it out dry in jar lids or mix with a little water to form cakes.
mlewsimpson51 (3 months ago)
the green cakes are BAD: they work, but the poison moves up the food chain to anything that eats the dead rat later - cats, dogs, owls, coyotes, hawks ... etc. ... once the larger species get enough of the poison heavy metals/salts ... they die excruciating deaths. The Plaster Paris or Baking Soda baits work well and non toxic to other creatures.

Jeez ,I never knew they were so smart.
what is the ingredient for the mix?
116falconer (4 months ago)
It’s 1/3rd water, 1/3rd plaster and 1/3 tasty stuff (flour, brown sugar, oatmeal, etc). Mix it until it’s like dough. The most important part is the plaster 👍👍

The best way with smart rats is, a fenn trap shallow hole enough for the trap to fit, set, cover with tissue kitchen towel, then gently cover with soil just enough to cover towel sprinkle with bait, works every time, good luck.

Tyrrel Davis when I say rat bait I mean peanut butter or chocolate not poison.
Tyrrel Davis (2 months ago)
Biggus Diggus fenn traps are very good. I have the mk 6 they will hold and kilĺ most 0f the unwanted furry vermin , just placed in tunnel made of wood or wire no problem. Rat bait block's should never be used outside of buildings it tells you that on the label. I have used them outside where i have come across a rat warren with twenty or more holes and baited most of them by pushing blocks down them with a stick then stamp the holes hard and they die in the ground. I have never had an hole 0pened up by an escapee .

Those are some good options, will look into. I do have one Hava hart live trap, and also a Gamo .22 pellet rifle with upgraded scope, and 2 bb pistols! So far this year I've already lost count, it's like 10 or 20 or something that I've shot. Currently a lull in the action for a few weeks, it's quiet...too quiet? Lol. The squirrels are getting reinforcements, and possibly going to launch a fresh insurgency! 😲😵 😅

My solution is simple and non toxic. Place an old tv with a vcr in it in the area you want to clear of rats. Put a tape of the View with Whoopie Goldberg and play it in a loop. Any living thing within hearing distance will commit suicide after about two minutes. This also works with Obama speeches and old 'I love Lucy' episodes.

The reason I wouldn't use those green blocks from the exterminator is OSHA says that to set the bait alone, you have to wear a mouth and nose mask, eye protector, gloves, long sleeve shirts and long sleeve pants and covered shoes and socks. After laying the bait you must remove your clothes and launder them and shower immediately. Not for me. Those things are lethal. If the dust is eaten by birds, they die. If they pick on the rats that die by this poison, the birds die also. If a cat or dog eats a dead rat that has died from this stuff, they can get very sick and even die. This stuff is HAZARDOUS. Too hazardous for home use unfortunately.

None Target pest can be affected by eating a dead carcass of an animal that has been poisoned by contract block but they would have to consume their own weight in the poison to die

I hope you have found Shawn Woods channel by now. Problem with poison is that you have to find the decomposing rat by it's stench. Also, other scavengers like possums and owls, skunks who eat the dead rodents, might also be killed.

I had rats digging tunnels under my greenhouse and getting inside to eat the wheat. I finally decided to flood the holes with *runny mortar cement.* Every time I discovered a new hole I flooded it with *mortar cement* that I mixed to a runny consistency. No more rats.

I love the Victor rat traps. If you take a bit of a slim jim or pepperoni stick it slides onto the bait pedal and gets rats everytime.
Elizabeth Cas (6 months ago)
Just a thought for next time maybe use vanilla extract or any flavor to coat the trap so it won't smell like metal or wood. Its sad to see some of those rats having higher IQ than so many people lol I put lol but it's actually truly sad.

Thanks so much for vid & recipe. Was going to try live trap, but after your vid, I'd rather the nasty things be dead! Got these bastards & damn squirrles, in my attic, due to 1/2 of soffit down. Hubby didn't get it finished, due to having to move to OK, for job. Spots started appearing on my ceiling, found out these are the cause. Can't keep them out, w/o all of soffit put up. Have all supplies, but can't find anyone to finish job, for reasonable price. So, stink or not, they have to DIE, now! Thanks again!

I use the large wooden Victor Rat traps as seen in this video. They work but cost $2 each. These rat traps are dangerous to use, they can break your finger easily! But they really do work! Every time I deploy these traps I get large 2 to 5 lb. Rats right away, usually by next morning. I toss out the traps with the rat bodies, as I am not interested in prying apart each trap and reusing each trap. We have chickens and gardens, but Never before have we had rats, till Home Construction outfits started building homes in Every single field for miles around in every direction, and right in the middle is us with our chickens and gardens. Little mice the chickens will hunt and eat, but the Big Rats they stay away from. Even cats are afraid of them! There's a Home Building Boom here in Utah! I can't wait till the bottom falls out from the Home building industry!!! I don't give a shit if they are all unemployed either!!! Was it coincidental that this Rat Invasion came precisely when this home building Boom started up? I don't think so! As the home builders tore up every single field in every single direction all around this area, the rats had to go somewhere, and we were the target! I go through a half dozen of these big wooden rat traps a week, this is getting expensive! I want to find a way to KILL RATS for good! Kill 'em!!! Dead! Kill! Kill!! Kill!!! Kill 'em All!!! Think I'm goin nuts? Just you try and operate a botanical garden and a flock of chickens while being overrun with Tons of Huge Rats! They eat everything!!! The Rats lift the lid right off the chicken scratch bucket and get right in to it and eat the chicken scratch. Soon as I can afford, I'm buying out Walmart again! Walmart is Constantly selling out of these big Rat traps because Everybody is having to battle this Rat Invasion, thanks to these Home builders! I'm getting a whole case of these traps! Meat is the best bait! Peanut butter just melts off in the summer sun, or the Rats just lick it off the traps and don't set it off. I tried Spam, but they hate spam worse that the U.S. Army! I'll try some freshly cooked really fatty Bacon next. That should do it. Now tell me this; Why in Hell does Anyone want to come to this Desert Waist Land called Utah? There's NOTHING HERE! Just Salt Flats, Zillions of Mosquitoes, Rats, Snakes and a Frozen waist land 9 months out of the year! Please Stay away if you want a good life! There's Nothing Here for you! Go Away! Take Your Rats with you!

We feel your pain! Our Caddie in the garage was chewed up inside to the tune of about $2000.00 (with $500 deductible Comprehensive AAA was $500.00 still TOO MUCH!) I never saw or heard any roof rat! Now we have to make sure that ALL rats are gone before we park inside. So far I tried that homemade rat bait which he/they ate most of. I tried the newer wood traps with yellow bait pads and peanut butter bait. All bait was eaten off none trapped. I then bought the old Victor original traps with the same result. Then engineer hubby said to bait the traps with melted cheese. I used the Kerrygold Grass-fed brand and rubber gloves with the traps NOT my hands. When putting traps out at night I used a small flashlight not the over head lighting. With this last method two rats have been killed so far (different nights). I will keep putting these out. When I think we got them all, I'll put out some traps with peanut butter (not set) to see if the rats are still with us. I hope that relating my experience here will help others. RATS ARE VERY SMART, SADLY MORE BRIGHT THAN MOST OF US!

I caught more than a hundred rats, mice and more with a 5-gal bucket buried all but 1", 2/3 full of water, cover water with styro peanuts and paint a few with peanut butter, or smear some on the bucket just above the water. Rats smell the bait, look in and it appears solid so they jump in and drown. I have caught ten in one night. I put half cup salt in the water so it doesn't foul.

The bait balls take a long time, the only reason the 1st few traps didnt work is bait. I use a cage trap like the 1st one and i get shit loads (im in the philippines, an unending supply of rats), i just put seeds (usually wheat) in a little plastic and and hang off the trip wire.

I've purchased the electric zapper boxes for rat killing - very expensive & didn't work at all. TalonG worked for a long time, but not now. I thought they'd scram when I loaded the attic w/ mothballs but they're still up there. I've bombed in the past & it worked but not now.  So i'm ready to make the "rat cookies" u mention.  I got the green blocks of bait at Home Depot in the past & the rats wouldn't touch it,  but the do it yourself pest killing store has a different , very potent brand that I need to try. At this point I'm seriously loosing the battle.

I was going to buy an electric trap but everything I read said they pretty much suck. Rats are INCREDIBLY smart, to the point where you have to respect them but the damage they cause is severe. I wish you luck with your battle and suggest that you set up a camera in order to track your progress, you can pick up really nice trail cameras for under a hundred bucks.

I've caught several rats with just a cheap live trap, you have to be patient, it can be 1-2 weeks before they will be careless and you catch them, dont move the traps around, regular, strong snap traps has also worked. When i catch them alive ive gassed them with my car, it seems pretty humane.
Love your video.
Sean Jones (10 months ago)
Sorry to say but the "No Bakes" had zero impact on the rats here. They couldn't wait for feeding time. Matter of fact they seemed to be getting fat on the no bakes... Although I did see one dead rat after about a week with clear liquid coming from it's mouth. But then I put down 9 old style Victor rat traps with peanut butter as bait and then things started to rock. I had 14 confirmed kills in 5 days. One trap even killed 2 medium sized rat pup fuckers at the same time. WTF... Fucking wicked as Hell. Reminded me of the Incredible 2 headed transplant (A very Old Sick Ass Movie) The trick is to ALWAYS wear rubber gloves and use a lot of traps. These SOBs love peanut butter. Enuff said

WILDflower As far as the 2 legged rat trolls? Thank you- but I too, only laughed at their ignorance. The only reason I kept responding was bc i was entertained. 😂 But on a very serious side. You're right, once again! Its a shame how childish people act. Some people can not simply respect other people's OPINIONS, whether they agree or not. I cant stand BULLIES. My biggest pet peeve in life! 😡 Im old enough and mature enough to know where their nastiness comes from...their misery. But their misery shouldnt be pushed off onto someone else. Kids nowadays have it hard. I try to sympathize but no sympathy for bullies until they see the errs of their ways. Until then, I WILL continue to be childish and bully them back twice as hard.(no matter how wrong or petty my actions are 😊😋😂)Because these two above can NEVER outsmart me in words.Fact! 😊😋TAKE CARE..BE BLESSED!
bkbella bell (5 months ago)
WILDflower Yes, yes, yes and yes! lol As for the 4 legged rats (or mice) they ARE smart. For those tiny heads they have, I find it amazing just how smart they are not too mention how they adapt. I find the only thing to do is plug up every single crack, crevice, or hole. My problem was NYC rats dont play. lol They ate the plaster (board) where my gas pipe goes into wall behind stove. I honestly thought Id die right there! We may have seen a mouse once in a blue. But with new construction everywhere here in Brooklyn... I guess they got desperate?? (and wanted some home cookin'..lol) I will tell you the ONLY thing that Ive found that works BUT CAUTION it is HIGHLY HIGHLY toxic. It comes in vials and looks like saw dust powder. Its not even legal here in the state, its made in China or Japan. Keeps EVERY critter, bug, or pest away. And prob kills us too... Hence the reason I couldnt use it anymore w a dog in the house. Just a sprinkle keeps them away. OBVIOUSLY NOT THE SMARTEST SOLUTION. (but desperation does make some people do desperate things. lol)

Commercial smoke bombs for gophers and rats don't generate enough smoke and the smoke isn't lethal. I've had better success with a 10-minute or 15-minute highway flare stuffed into the burrow. Cap the opening with a board and tamp soil around the edges of the board to seal it off, forcing the fumes to travel along the tunnels. Gophers may try to block off the tunnel with soil to stop fumes from coming their way, but if the fumes build up quickly enough, they'll suffocate before they can complete the job.

Rats love almonds. With the live cage traps I will drill a small hole into the almond and then wire it to the inside of the cage toward the back. That way it has to struggle with the almond and therefore trip the trigger. I caught 1 rat a night for 5 nights. If you use snap traps use no less than 6 traps at a time. Pry the metal prong up with a screw driver just a little bit and fasten an almond on to it. However remember that rats are very suspicious of new objects. It takes at least a week and a half for them to even think about touching something new. Have patience and you can also set food down around the trap every night to get them used to eating around the traps. I think the best way is to buy a multi catch trap and wire some almonds into that.

Those poison blocks just made rats high as a kite when we used them. They would eat, then walk around right in front of us and our dogs like they had plenty of sense. At least it made them easy to hit and kill with a stick. It didn't even keep their numbers down. They just kept procreating. We put out ammonia soaked rags in places humans don't go often, so that helped drive them away from there. But I think there's a reason they call those green blocks "bait" and not "poison." It draws them in and makes them queasy and drunk. They will not enter an enclosed trap, either.

SJ R (1 year ago)
Equal parts of plaster of paris, flour, brown sugar, water to shape a ball. Need water nearby for them to drink so the mixture will bind the rat's insides up. I add peanutbutter to the recipe.
A. May (1 year ago)
Is there anything else you can use instead of plaster that is non-toxic? I don't have any plaster and I need an immediate fix here! I got rats the size of my freakin formarm running around. Is there anything else that I can use to kill a rat that they can't digest? I'm afraid that if my dog or cat catches them they're going to get sick if I use actual poison.
Angela Hartzell (25 days ago)
A. May baking soda works too!!!!! Rats can’t belch and baking soda produces carbon dioxide in their stomachs and causes it to rupture. Use peanut butter with it and oatmeal to bind it together to form a ball and place it in spots that the rats are. It takes a couple days but it works
mlewsimpson51 (3 months ago)
baking soda + sugar or instant coco mix or maple syrup + flour or corn meal. Equal parts - leave it dry in a jar lid or mix it with a little water to form balls. they cannot FART ... so blow up and croak.

Amanda Shuler get a gun or a sharp shooter rifleman... Or spend lots of money on an exterminator but the risk with that, you might get a heart attack as you get woken up by a bunch of cops crawling all over your house. Rats that size Stephen king says, will attack to kill anything they sense is threat. "Externinator found eaten alive by in the basement by Rats!!!"

I got something new for bait you need to try. I got this idea from got blood outdoors ultimate bait to catch mice on youtube. Go to dollar tree or dollar store.. Buy a bag of mini tootsie rolls. Chew them up until they are moldable. Put them on the bait trap. Get a bbq lighter and cook some of the tootsie roll.. Until you get a cotton candy smell. Place the trap where they like to go and i promise you you will get a mouse or a rat. If the bait is melting off or ants try to eat it.. Put it a clean trap w bait moulded in freezer to harden it.

I tried many things tben after watching a programme about a poisoner. Hit on the idea of leaving them a drink which was antifreeze, they loved it and were dead within the week.

the plastic of paris mix is great but if they don't come out of their hiding place before they die, it will stink up the place w/c i rather not have. i've seen the barrel trap on youtube w/c seems to be quite effective, i personally just use fly paper

The plaster of paris bait is similar to the flour+cement recipe which kills by stopping up the rats digestive system after some time. You can't add any liquids like milk/water otherwise the cement or plaster will harden and the rats won't eat that.

we're trying this for the first time tonight. We have at least three big rats. we caught 6 young ones and one big one in traps but these last two or three seem very smart. but will they eat this recipe. I know they are neophobic, scared of trying anything new. Did it work for you the first time you put out the mix?

dry ice down the holes , or you could use a hose hooked to your car in the tunnels both the co1 or co2 is heaver then air and will fill the tunnels but you need to be careful if your garage is attached to the home it the rats have tunnels to the home fill the basement with the gas. no bake add baking soda, to the plaster Paris , sugar, salt leave water for the rats to activate the plaster and baking soda. also rats mice can not burp so cheep soft drinks will also cause them to die.

sam frankss - if the CO2 from using dry ice works as you say, then the same method for creating a bed bug trap could work also. Look it up on YouTube and you see that it generates also CO2 and is easy to make with yeast, sugar, and water. Yet as a separate idea I wonder ... Can we make something with the dry yeast since it seems possible that when mixing with water in the rat's stomach might trigger the same foaming reaction that can kill them very quickly.

awesome. I have been in the same situation. the rats won't touch bait in any metal traps. so I put out some of the poison blocks. they have eaten over a pound and a half of them already. poison blocks work great! thank you for the informative video!

If a rat is killed with poison , one does not know where it went to die, so would the rotting body of the rat give an awful smell if it happens to die under the house or the garage?
Bike Cycle (1 year ago)
It happens, the same with killing mice with that poison, the smell is horrible.
tahira1 (1 year ago)
Carmel Pule' Yes and you may get flies lots and lots of them. It happened to me until I got someone to remove the baseboards in the kitchen and found their lair.

+Aluna chang 1 part plaster of Paris, 1 part flour, 1 part sugar then add water till you can make dough balls. I made mine with plaster, oatmeal and brown sugar, I wasn't able to get a dough texture they were more like no bake cookies.

+Kenny Shepherd the video is from my old Sony DCR-SR100 handycam, it has night shot plus I used a 25 bulb IR light that I picked up on eBay a few years ago for $5. Both were plugged in so I could run them night after night.

Rats are not repelled by the smell of metal. They are however, very suspicious of anything new in their environment.(leave it for a week). I have caught numerous rats with metal" fen" traps under wooden tunnels, place alongside buildings. No bait. If there is a tunnel ,they will go through it.

The black plastic snap traps worked best for me. The key is to thoroughly clean (bleach, hot water, soap, rinse rinse rinse) each trap after a kill, and change the bait. I have four snap traps, with removable bait cups. Each one is sterilized (to remove all smells of the previous kill and of the bait), dried and baited with a different bait than used previously. Best baits? Smooth peanut butter with some chocolate crumbs on top, pressed into the bait cup; a sweet dough (flour, water, sugar) with a bit of cocoa added, cat kibbles pressed into smooth peanut butter (yes, really!), salmon bits pressed into the bait cups, etc. I had a late fall infestation of my 108 year old house, and have been diligent and methodical with the traps. After you've rotated through the various baits, you can start with the first one again. The buggers in my house were eating the warfarin and pooping it out, but not dying. I did set out flour, sugar, corn meal mixed with dry concrete mix (in a stainless steel bowl) and that was very effective without the use of a poison that might end up harming another animal. I hate killing these animals, but they are filthy, flea-ridden and disease-carriers. They have no place in my home! So far, 16 dead (in about 8 weeks) and I haven't heard any rat-related noises in my house for two weeks (but the traps are set and waiting for the next one!). Good luck with yours!

Others report that in place of Portland cement, plaster of Paris, quick-setting drywall joint compound or Fix-It-All Patching Compound by Custom Building Products (formerly sold as Dowman's Fix-All) can be used as the hardening agent in the rat killer mix that you describe here. That gives one more choices, and doesn't require one to purchase a 50-pound, or larger, sack of Portland cement, much of which is likely to harden before it can be used.

can you replace the plaster of paris with pye plaster or polyfilla etc? tvm
116falconer (1 year ago)
+TN The Governor I suppose, just as long as it doesn't harden prior to the rats eating it. I tried premixed joint compound but found it to be way to watery.

I have good luck with the good old  wood Victor traps.  I bought it new, then left it outside in the weather; the Sun baked the wood, & the Rain rusted the shiny finish off of the bail & paddle (Rats are afraid of shiny metal from what I found). Place a few nuts  crumbs chunk of Pizza etc around the trap, & secure the "trophy" piece onto the spike.  I've gotten entire families of Rats...1-right (literally)-after-the-other.  SNAP  EEEE!!!    SNAP     SNAP   I've caught 19 Rats,(over 5/6 years) & only 1 with Poison, the rest with good old  Victor woodie.   Mice are harder to get with the wood traps I find.   Seems like they bring their own food & not interested in my trap snacks, some smart enough to eat the bait & not set it off!   Note; they were not all 1 breed;  Norway Rat, Roof Rat, Brown Rat  & also Brown Rat & Mouse hybrid.
RetroCaptain (1 year ago)
I have 1 of the 2 I bought, & I left it "new looking", & I get results with it too, but seems the "aged" one has faster results. It's like they are more cautious when it looks very new, versus something "old" but ultimately it's the "sniff sniff" AHH  yummy!!  I waaaant !!   that kills them.   Apparently you can buy a "proven" Mouse bait liquid for the plastic traps. I should try it.  "Tomcat" brand.
116falconer (1 year ago)
+RetroCaptain that's interesting because it seems like the mice I occasionally get willingly walk into the wood traps. I tell people just how smart rats are and how dumb mice are. If I ever get rats again I'll try aging the traps.

Hi there, could you give the recipe for the "no bakes" - what's in there and how much?? Thanks
artistpw (1 year ago)
I'd add peanut butter rather than water. Then it wouldn't set up any of the plaster. I've seen recipes for mixes that use an equal mix of flour, plaster and baking soda. The baking soda may kill rats, but it should make them thirsty so when the rats drink water, the plaster sets up. I might be inclined to also add some boric acid as a test. For traps, rats can also smell death if another rat was killed. They are wicked smart, sort of like squirrels. I think they like tubes, so maybe putting a little cover over a trap would be more effective. You could also probably grind up a few bitter almonds and add in the mix. About 10 of those at once for a human will probably be a lethal dose, so be very careful with them - I take one a few times a day for lyme disease, and they don't taste too bad. I think some mice ate a few of mine, and it may have killed them.
116falconer (1 year ago)
+Cathy Burkosky the ones I made were 1/3 part plaster, 1/3 part oatmeal and 1/3 part brown sugar then add water a little bit at a time until you get to a workable consistency. Mine remained kind of sticky but the rats loved them. The recipe I found on the internet called for 1/3 parts plaster, flour and granulated sugar but I didn't have any flour so I went with the oatmeal 👍👍👍
