Rat scratching in my closet

So I live in Atlanta Georgia off the road surrounded by woods. I believe a Rat came in frrom outside and is now stuck in my closet. It has been a little over a week when we saw him and closed him into the closet... I have dropped bait in...Apparently he wont eat it because he is still scratching at the door. Not sure what to do.. I was honestly hoping by now he would be dead or went back thru the hole it came in but i hear him every night in my closet which I havent opened in over a week. Not aure what to do

Japanese Maple

Hello. My husband transplanted my dwarf (about 4-5 feet tall) Japanese maple that has been in the pot for many years. One huge root had poked itself out at the bottom of the pot. This one root is deep into the ground and impossible to dig out as it went under the driveway. The tree had to be moved. My husband had to cut the root. It is now in a more suitable location. My fear is losing this tree. Is there something I can do to give it a fighting chance? Thank you.

Identify bug

In clearing papers out of my office, I pulled an envelope from a box and this bug was on it. His hind feet adhere as though they have a sticky substance on them.

Ruby Red Crabapple Seedling

My seedling was doing really well. Suddenly, the leaves began to turn brown and fall off? I live in Georgia so we haven't had any cold weather since I planted this tree in a container that has drainage. Any thoughts?

What could this be?

Invasive thorny vine, new growth is soft and rubber like, roots look like red potatoes growing in clumps, mostly at base of a tree, root vines grow widespread across my yard and when cut they just grow back from extensive vines under the soil, not very deep but grow fast and are overtaking trees. Thicker than grape vines
