Rats can cause significant damage to structures inside your Ilexhurst 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.

While they may not kill the stalk outright, secondary organisms generally invade and reduce the sugar quality. Avoid using poison and glue traps, as these are inhumane and cause more problems than they solve. Care must be exercised to ensure that baits are properly placed and the use instructions on the product’s label are strictly followed. Walk only on the wooden beams in the attic, never the sheet rock, or you could fall through the ceiling!

Rat droppings are small, dark, cylindrically shaped, and are about one-half inch to three-fourths inch long with blunt ends. They are very strong, and can injure your fingers. Sometimes they transmit disease indirectly, for example, when fleas first bite an infected rat, then a person. Then they return to the attic. Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything. Like the Norway rat, the roof rat is implicated in the transmission of a number of diseases to humans, including murine typhus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis (food poisoning), rat-bite fever, and plague. When droppings are seen, it is a good practice to remove those droppings and later inspect to see whether new droppings were deposited. 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.
