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

We also service Sarasota of course. Our range includes most of the south end of Tampa Bay, including Palmetto, Memphis, Ellenton, Oneco, Whitfield Estates, Bayshore Gardens, Cortez, Holmes Beach, Anna Maria, and Palma Sola.

  • Baiting Tips for Roof Rats

Overhead trap sets are particularly useful for roof rats. Roof rats are also food hoarders, stashing supplies of food such as seeds and nuts. For example, only zinc phosphide can be applied on the ground to control rats in sugarcane or macadamia orchards, and the second-generation anticoagulants, cholecalciferol and bromethalin, can be used only in and around buildings, not around crops or away from buildings even in non crop situations. You don't want to over-pay of course. The fumigation of structures, truck trailers, or rail cars should only be done by a licensed pest control operator who is trained in fumigation techniques. Droppings - you might find these in places like cupboards, cabinets and other areas around the home where rats like to hide They are very strong, and can injure your fingers. Traps may be nailed to beams or studs and secured to pipes with wires.

These rats are primarily active at night. For the characteristics of the various anticoagulant rodenticides see Norway Rats. If you have heard noises in your walls or attic, chances are you have rats. Most commercial baits are registered for both species of rats and for house mice, but often they are less acceptable to roof rats than to the other species. Rats, like mice, are omnivorous rodents. Prune to raise the skirts and remove any nests constructed in the trees. Caution should be taken to avoid trapping nontarget species such as tree squirrels. Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species.

  • What are Rats?

ALWAYS USE RESPIRATORY PROTECTION WHEN REMOVING RODENT DROPPINGS. Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences. Rats that are captured should be humanely destroyed and not released elsewhere because of their role in disease transmission, damage potential, and detrimental effect on native wildlife. If you're not experienced in setting them, you may have some problems, so be careful. Other rat signs may also assist, but be aware that both species may be present. That is very costly! Do the job ONCE by a wildlife operator, NOT A PEST CONTROL COMPANY, get it done, and you'll be rat-free forever. Another important treatment component is customer education so the customer understands the concepts of the proposed control program. Norway rats and the roof rats are very different in their habits, habitats and behavior, so the first requirement of a rat treatment program is to correctly identify the rat and develop a treatment plan that works for that species.
