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

  • Information on Pack Rats and Roof Rats

In sugarcane, they move into the field as the cane matures and feed on the cane stalks. Other vegetable, melon, berry, and fruit crops occasionally suffer relatively minor damage when adjacent to infested habitat such as riparian vegetation. Roof rats are found in more temperate climates, since they do not do well in cooler temperatures. They may live in trees, such as palm, or in attics, and climb down to a food source. It is best to contact pest management professionals for an inspection and evaluation. Our pest management professionals (PMPs) practice all techniques involved in Integrated Pest Management for rodents. A few instances of first-generation anticoagulant resistance have been reported in roof rats; although not common, it may be underestimated because so few resistance studies have been conducted on this species. Newer rodenticides are much more efficacious and have resulted in the phasing out of these older materials over the last 20 years.

  • What are Rats?

Emphasis should be placed on the removal of as much harborage as is practical. Avoid using poison and glue traps, as these are inhumane and cause more problems than they solve. Removing clutter and any debris that creates hiding places rats can use as harborage sites. Rats themselves - if you see one rat, there's a good chance there are a bunch more hiding in nests or burrows that you can't see. Prune to raise the skirts and remove any nests constructed in the trees. When rodent-proofing against roof rats, pay close attention to the roof and roof line areas to assure all accesses are closed. Roof rats can also nest on the ground if necessary. They have also been found living in sewer systems, but this is not common.

In most instances, rats are very wary. Droppings are another good indicator of roof rat activity. Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available. Since roof rats rarely dig burrows, burrow fumigants are of limited use; however, if they have constructed burrows, then fumigants that are effective on Norway rats, such as aluminum phosphide and gas cartridges, will be effective on roof rats. Damage - a rat's teeth are constantly growing and that means they have to chew on hard things like wood to trim them back. Nests inside and under buildings, or in piles of rubbish or wood. In agricultural settings, weasels, foxes, coyotes, and other predators prey on roof rats, but their take is inconsequential as a population control factor. They approach new food or object with caution.
