Rats can cause significant damage to structures inside your Old Duette 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 Old Duette 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.

Nests inside and under buildings, or in piles of rubbish or wood. Rat control using chemical products involves baits designed to kill rats. There are several other types of lethal traps, including the crocodile trap, which has teeth that close on the rat, and even gas chamber traps. Check the repairs you've done, to make sure no new areas have been chewed open. Since none of these are anticoagulants, all can be used to control anticoagulant resistant populations of roof rats. The Norway rat produces six to eight litters of six to nine young per year. Eliminate vines growing on buildings and, when feasible, overhanging tree limbs that may be used as travel routes. The young are able to breed before they are four months old.

  • What are Rats?

Wire-mesh, live traps (Tomahawk®, Havahart®) are available for trapping rats. Hundreds may be nesting in a city block-in underground burrows, in sewers, on roofs, inside buildings-with few people in the area realizing it. Read more about where rats live. The commercially available, expanded plastic treadle traps, such as the Victor Professional Rat Trap, are particularly effective if properly located in well-traveled paths. Where legal and not hazardous, shooting of roof rats is effective at dusk as they travel along utility lines. Visual sightings of live or dead rodents indicate rodent activity. The elimination of food and water through good warehouse sanitation can do much to reduce rodent infestation. At least in some parts of the United States and elsewhere in the world, the methods used to control rats have reduced Norway rat populations but have permitted roof rats to become more prominent, apparently because they are more difficult to control.

How to Control Rat Situations and Infestations. Roof rats range along the lower half of the East Coast and throughout the Gulf States upward into Arkansas. They also consume seeds, nuts, berries, and insects. Scratching sounds - if you hear gnawing and the sounds of scampering in the walls or around the house you might have rats. Their tails are longer than the rest of their body and are uniformly dark colored. 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. There are holes all over - missing roof vent screens, plumbing stacks, gaps between the roof and fascia board, gaps in the siding, areas where pipes go into the house, etc. Make sure that all doors, windows and screens fit tightly in their frames and repair those that do not.
