Rats can cause significant damage to structures inside your Matoaka home. Rats’ teeth grow constantly, so they need to gnaw on things to wear down their teeth. Unfortunately for you, that means they can – and will – chew through anything to get where they want to go, including drywall, wood and wall studs, plumbing pipes, and electrical wires. They will also help themselves to the food in your pantry, leaving behind unsanitary droppings and contaminated food. For help call the Manatee County, FL Rodent Pros today!

Rats can also carry a number of disease-causing germs that are harmful to adults, children, and pets, such as Salmonella and E. coli, which can cause food poisoning or other infections. Rats can also transmit rabies, bubonic plague and Weil’s disease (leptospirosis). For these reasons, it is extremely important to call our Matoaka rodent control service and get rid of rats in your house as soon as you realize you have a rat infestation. We offer the best guarantees on rodent exclusion for homes.

We also service Sarasota of course. Our range includes most of the south end of Tampa Bay, including Palmetto, Memphis, Ellenton, Oneco, Whitfield Estates, Bayshore Gardens, Cortez, Holmes Beach, Anna Maria, and Palma Sola.

Our professional wildlife professionals may not show you how to kill the rats but instead use rat repellents, rat fumigants and rat trapping systems to ensure the effectiveness of the rat control method, without physically harming the rats. Landscaped residential or industrial areas provide good habitat, as does riparian vegetation of riverbanks and streams. They can successfully mate throughout the year, meaning that if you have rats in the attic, then there is a good possibility that they will have a nest of baby rats that you will need to deal with as well. For example, only zinc phosphide can be applied on the ground to control rats in sugarcane or macadamia orchards, and the second-generation anticoagulants, cholecalciferol and bromethalin, can be used only in and around buildings, not around crops or away from buildings even in non crop situations. Some of the first-generation anticoagulants (pindone and warfarin) are available as soluble rodenticides from which water baits can be prepared. Some of their habitats include garbage dumps, sewers and fields. Parks with natural and artificial ponds, or reservoirs may also be infested. However, rats are a nuisance animal wherever you choose to release them, and they also have a particularly low rate of survival once they have been relocated, so in most cases using humane lethal traps will be the best way to deal with the infestation.

  • What is the best bait to trap a rat?

Listen for rat evidence, like their scurrying and running noises in the attic, and scratching in the walls. Sometimes they transmit the disease directly by contaminating food with their urine or feces. These diseases often share similar symptoms, and medical professionals must perform the proper diagnoses. Shooting is rarely effective by itself and should be done in conjunction with trapping or baiting programs. If living under a refrigerator or freezer, they may disable the unit by gnawing the electrical wires. The product label is the law and dictates the product’s location of use and use patterns. Most information on this subject comes from populations confined in cages or outdoor pens. Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures.

Rodent-proofing against roof rats usually requires more time to find entry points than for Norway rats because of their greater climbing ability. They are usually a shiny black, but may vary according to diet. Rats have acute hearing and can readily detect noises. Roof rats also have an excellent sense of balance. In some agricultural areas, roof rats cause significant losses of tree crops such as citrus and avocados and, to a lesser extent, walnuts, almonds, and other nuts. Its worldwide geographic distribution suggests that it is much more suited to tropical and semitropical climates. A few baits are strong enough to cause death with a single feeding. The key is to control rat populations, not individual rats.
