Woodrat Rodent Library - Woodrat Identify Damage - Victor Woodrat Control



Other Names: Packrat, Traderat


Earning its nickname "packrat,"  this rodent is particularly fond of shiny objects and will drop whatever it's carrying to take the trinket instead.  Woodrats gnaw on fruit trees, furniture, mattress bedding, wires, conduits and paper products in the home. They can cause serious financial loss for farmers and homeowners.






Suggested Woodrat Baits


Do you have a rat trap and need to know what the best rat bait options are? Victor® recommends the following baits to attract Woodrats.

Mouse Bait - Peanut Butter - Rodent Control - Victorpest



          ◊    Nuts
          ◊    Nesting materials such as dental floss
          ◊    Peanut butter
          ◊    Dried fruit
          ◊    Pet food
          ◊    Bird seed



Tying the bait to the trigger will prevent the rodent from licking or nibbling the bait and stealing it without setting off the trap.


For baits that cannot be tied (peanut butter, e.g.), it’s best to use small amounts.




Victor®, the industry leader in rodent control, offers a variety of innovative rat control solutions such as electronic rat traps , ultrasonic rat repellents and rodenticides to help you with all your rodent control needs. Victor® has all the information you need to get rid of the rat in your home.
