Rats can cause significant damage to structures inside your Longboat Key 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 Longboat Key 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.

Rat Infestation

No rat bait ingredient is universally highly acceptable, and regional differences are the rule rather than the exception. Without this knowledge, both time and money are wasted, and the chances of failure are increased. When necessary, roof rats will travel considerable distances (100 to 300 feet [30 to 90 m]) for food. In a human environment, the rodents will consume almost any food to which they have access. The great adaptability of rats to human-created environments and the high fertility rate of rats make for quick recuperation of their populations. ALWAYS USE RESPIRATORY PROTECTION WHEN REMOVING RODENT DROPPINGS. Once established, they readily breed and thrive within buildings, just as Norway rats do. Distinctions must be made as to which rodenticide (registered product) to use, the method of application or placement, and the amount of bait to apply.

Their tails are longer than the rest of their body and are uniformly dark colored. The adequate inspection of a large facility for the presence and location of roof rats often requires a nighttime search when the facility is normally shut down. Check the traps periodically, remove any dead trapped rats, and reset the traps. When practical, remove extraneous vegetation adjacent to the crop that may provide shelter for rats. The product label is the law and dictates the product’s location of use and use patterns. They are nocturnal by nature and are accomplished climbers. Roof Rats are predominate in coastal areas. In a human environment, the rodents will consume almost any food to which they have access.

No, they sleep in the attic all day. Usually the peaks in breeding occur in the spring and fall. All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice. A mouse's tracks will be much shorter. Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences. Only construction grade materials are used. A new second-generation anticoagulant, difethialone, is presently being developed and EPA registration is anticipated in the near future. However, they may sometimes also build nests in burrows.
