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

These tactics have been ruled fraudulent by the FTC, and they DO NOT WORK. They approach new food or object with caution. Where label instructions permit, small blocks can be placed or fastened on rafters, ledges, or even attached to tree limbs, where they are readily accessible to the arboreal rats. Floor drains and sewer pipes should have tight-fitting grates with openings less than 1/4 inch in diameter. In agricultural settings, weasels, foxes, coyotes, and other predators prey on roof rats, but their take is inconsequential as a population control factor. In controlling roof rats with rodenticides, a sharp distinction must be made between control in and around buildings and control away from buildings such as in landfills and dumps, along drainage ditches and streams, in sewer water evaporation ponds, and in parks. Adults range in weight from about 5-10 ounces. The food habits of roof rats outdoors in some respects resemble those of tree squirrels, since they prefer a wide variety of fruit and nuts.

Control methods must reflect an understanding of the roof rat’s habitat requirements, reproductive capabilities, food habits, life history, behavior, senses, movements, and the dynamics of its population structure. Products sold as general animal repellents, based on taste and/or odor, are sometimes advertised to repel animals, including rats, from garbage bags. Roof rats entering homes are generally found in raised or secure enclosures such as walls, cabinets, attics, and false ceilings. The efficacy of such products for rats is generally lacking. Timing a sealup for rats is impossible, because they leave for short periods, and they don't all leave at the same time of night. Emphasis should be placed on the removal of as much harborage as is practical. The common wooden snap traps that are effective for Norway rats are effective for roof rats. The young are able to breed before they are four months old.

Anticoagulants (slow-acting, chronic toxicants). Rats tend to segregate themselves socially in both space and time. The food habits of roof rats outdoors in some respects resemble those of tree squirrels, since they prefer a wide variety of fruit and nuts. The smallest imperfections during the construction and roofing of a home can lead to a rat infestation. I highly recommend snap traps, not live cage traps, certainly not glue boards, and most definitely not poison! Never poison rats, it doesn't solve the problem and it just creates more problems. Once established, they readily breed and thrive within buildings, just as Norway rats do. Some of the more important non-chemical methods are: 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.
