Memphis Rat Removal – Manatee County, FL Rodent Pros
Voted Best Rat Removal Companies in Memphis
Rats can cause significant damage to structures inside your Memphis 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.

Body is smaller and sleeker than the Norway rat’s.
Sightings & Sounds - Since rodents are nocturnal and live secretively under normal circumstances, you can be sure that regular daytime rodent sightings indicate a heavy infestation.
At least in some parts of the United States and elsewhere in the world, the methods used to control rats have reduced Norway rat populations but have permitted roof rats to become more prominent, apparently because they are more difficult to control.
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.
Got a rat problem? Let rat removal experts get rid of your rat problems so you don’t have to! Many people want to know how to kill rats, but the reality is that killing the rats may not be the best solution to your rat infestation problem.
Their use for roof rats is limited to control within structures because roof rats rarely produce burrows.
Rodenticides were once categorized as acute (single-dose) or chronic (multiple dose) toxicants.
From causing plague epidemics (the "Black Death" of Europe) to rat-bite fever, whether feeding on stored grain or gnawing electric wires, rats are enemies of humankind.

Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions.

Rats (especially Roof rats) are wary of new objects, new foods or changed in environment.
Leptospirosis - a disease transmitted from contact with rat urine that is serious enough to cause humans to bleed in the lungs.
Rodents sniff out the bait and return to feed upon it continuously until the poison kills them.
The roof rat is more at home in warm climates, and apparently less adaptable, than the Norway rat, which is why it has not spread throughout the country.
Most information on this subject comes from populations confined in cages or outdoor pens.
The common wooden snap traps that are effective for Norway rats are effective for roof rats.
While you are preventing future rat population growth through inspection, sanitation, and exclusion, you will also want to begin working towards elimination of the population that is already present through trapping and baiting.
Tracking powders can be placed in voids behind walls, near points of entry, and in well-defined trails.
In tree crops, some cultural practices can be helpful.
Rats contaminating food or food preparation surfaces can transmit food poisoning.
