Rats can cause significant damage to structures inside your Whitfield 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 Whitfield rodent control service and get rid of rats in your house as soon as you realize you have a rat infestation.

Within a year, one female may be responsible for up to 40 new rodents. Seal any openings larger than ¼ inch with caulk, wood, mesh, or other appropriate materials. Also, be careful when setting snap traps. Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures. Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions. Distinctions must be made as to which rodenticide (registered product) to use, the method of application or placement, and the amount of bait to apply. For rats, all openings greater than 1/2" should be sealed. Having completed the repairs to wires, and possibly vacuumed feces or replaced insulation (not usually necessary) fumigate the attic to kill any remaining parasites or spores from the rats.
