Rats can cause significant damage to structures inside your Rye 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 Rye 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.

In homes, the attic and garage rafters close to the infestation are the best trapping sites. You will never solve a rat problem until you find all of these openings, and seal them shut with steel, which rats are unable to chew through. Various sounds that indicate rodent activity include gnawing, scratching, and digging noises. In residences where rats may be living in the attic and feeding outdoors, the damage may be restricted to tearing up insulation for nesting or gnawing electrical wiring. Roof rats can also nest on the ground if necessary. Trapping is the preferred method of indoor control. If you're not experienced in setting them, you may have some problems, so be careful. Rats leave the attic during the night, to go out and forage for water and food.

You will know the bait is working when the bait is no longer being consumed. Removing clutter and any debris that creates hiding places rats can use as harborage sites. Once you are confident that you have caught all of the rats that are in the attic, then it will be time to check for any insulation or wires in the attic that need to be replaced, and for any nesting material to remove, and feces to clean up.

Rickettsial Diseases - various forms of Typhus fall into this category and can also be carried by rat-borne parasites. Roof rats have hairless, scaly tails that are longer than their heads and bodies.
