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

The nature of damage to outdoor vegetation can often provide clues as to whether it is caused by the roof or Norway rat. Roof rats are not accomplished swimmers and are not usually found in sewers. Rats have acute hearing and can readily detect noises. They need not be baited. Visual sightings of live or dead rodents indicate rodent activity. For further information see Norway Rats. Check the traps periodically, remove any dead trapped rats, and reset the traps. Norway rats are also polygamous and form colonies of many males and females.

When rodent-proofing against roof rats, pay close attention to the roof and roof line areas to assure all accesses are closed. They prefer to consume fruits (sometimes referred to as the “fruit rat” or “citrus rat”) and nuts, although roof rats are omnivorous and will feed on almost anything available to them. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide. Presently, only one such modified trap is commercially available. A vegetation-free margin around the grove will slow rat invasions because rats are more susceptible to predation when crossing unfamiliar open areas. Norway rats can climb, but not as well as roof rats, and are strong swimmers. Mating generally peaks in the warmer months of the year, but may occur year round in some areas. The total cost will probably run between $300 - $500 to remove all the rats and seal the entry holes shut, and it may seem more up-front than a low monthly deal, but you've got to do it right, and then you won't have to worry about rats any more.

They may also enter through ill-fitted doors, windows, or screens, and air vents that are not in sound or working order. A vegetation-free margin around the grove will slow rat invasions because rats are more susceptible to predation when crossing unfamiliar open areas. Between 9 and 14 days, their eyes open, and they begin to explore for food and move about near their nest. 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. Excellent climber that can often be found in the upper parts of structures. Traps may be nailed to beams or studs and secured to pipes with wires. Check the repairs you've done, to make sure no new areas have been chewed open. Sometimes they transmit disease indirectly, for example, when fleas first bite an infected rat, then a person.
