1. (STEP 1) for Rat Control is SANITATION, INSPECTION and EXCLUSION.

SANITATION, as it is an important consideration in rodent control.
When a premise's sanitation is bad, you can be sure that rats will always be around to finish off those food leftovers. Keeping your premises clean is of utmost importance as a pair of rats can multiply exponentially when food source is readily available.

INSPECTION is an important first step in getting rid of rats. Once you know the location of the rats, you can set traps or place bait.

EXCLUSION is an important rodent control technique. It will get rid of the rats by making it difficult for them to enter the home or structure.

Rats (especially Roof rats) are wary of new objects, new foods or changed in environment. They are constantly exploring surroundings and notice changes and are suspicious by nature. This is why traps and bait stations may be avoided for a day or two. They approach new food or object with caution. Within a rat colony, they may be a few rats that are extra cautious and manage to avoid traps or eating rodent baits. 

2. (STEP 2) Steps for Rat Control are TRAPPING, BAITING OR REPELLENT.

TRAPPING - Dependent on what type of rats and situation, the type of cages, snap traps, glue trap is essential to ensure that the pesky traps are trapped. Traps are also the preferred method of capturing rodents whether the use of rodenticides is undesirable.

BAITING - Different type of rats prefer different food type. For example, some rats prefer oily food, meat while some may prefer nuts, grains, bread or vegetables. 

REPELLENT- Repellents are chemicals/essential oil infused into a medium to slowly disperse the smell wich are distasteful to rodents and whose odour the rodents are extremely sensitive to. Repellents are not long-lasting and need to be reapplied when the repellency wears off.
