Rats can cause significant damage to structures inside your Palm View 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.

If living under a refrigerator or freezer, they may disable the unit by gnawing the electrical wires. The key is to control rat populations, not individual rats. The traditional style snap traps are still among the best ways of dealing with a rat problem, and these are simple to set and bait, and you should look to place them in areas where the rats are active, so where you can see feces and smudges on the walls. No chemical repellents are specifically registered for rat control. The muzzle of the roof rat is pointed and the overall appearance of the roof rat is much more streamlined and sleek looking than a Norway rat. Use proper garbage and refuse disposal containers and implement exterior sanitation programs. You don't want to over-pay of course. These devices must be viewed with considerable skepticism, because research has not proven them effective.

Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide. Most pest control companies set rat traps, perhaps squirt some flammable expansion foam at very obvious holes, and then put you on a monthly service to remove the rats that are still getting in to your home.

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. The older rodenticides, formerly referred to as acute toxicants, such as arsenic, phosphorus, red squill, and ANTU, are either no longer registered or of little importance in rat control. Roof rats are susceptible to all of the various anticoagulant rodenticides, but less so than Norway rats. Rats will also drag their tails, leaving a mark between their feet tracks. These can be identified by the brown smudges of grease that comes from the rat's fur, and should all be sealed to prevent future rat infestations in the attic. They are very strong, and can injure your fingers. Other rat signs may also assist, but be aware that both species may be present. They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source.
