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

Some of their habitats include garbage dumps, sewers and fields. Caution should be taken to avoid trapping nontarget species such as tree squirrels. Rat droppings are small, dark, cylindrically shaped, and are about one-half inch to three-fourths inch long with blunt ends. Specifications may vary depending on bait manufacturer even though the active ingredient may be the same. No rat bait ingredient is universally highly acceptable, and regional differences are the rule rather than the exception.

Roof rats have a strong tendency to avoid new objects in their environment and this neophobia can influence control efforts, for it may take several days before they will approach a bait station or trap. Snap traps are actually the very best way to do it. They do very well on feed provided for domestic animals such as swine, dairy cows, and chickens, as well as on dog and cat food. Their burrowing habitats include soil along building foundations, under woodpiles and other piles of debris. Setting a trap to collect a few specimens may be the only sure way to identify the rat or rats involved. Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways. 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. By this time they have learned what is good to eat by experimenting with potential food items and by imitating their mother.
