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.

Anticoagulant paraffin-type bait blocks provide an alternative to bait stations containing pelleted or loose cereal bait. Roof rats are likely to found in coastal, near-coastal areas and port cities. Liquid baits may be an effective alternative in situations where normal baits are not readily accepted, especially where water is scarce or where rats must travel some distance to reach water. These kill traps are often baited with whole nuts and are most useful in trapping rats in trees. In situations where rats are not controlled with conventional products, fumigation of transport vehicles or rat ground burrows may sometimes be needed. Knowledge is limited on interspecific competition between the different genera and species of rats. Once you are confident that you have caught all of the rats that are in the attic, then it will be time to check for any insulation or wires in the attic that need to be replaced, and for any nesting material to remove, and feces to clean up. Check the traps periodically, remove any dead trapped rats, and reset the traps.

Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption. Make sure that all doors, windows and screens fit tightly in their frames and repair those that do not. 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. Read more about where rats live. In tropical or semi tropical regions, the season may be nearly year-round. Avoid using poison and glue traps, as these are inhumane and cause more problems than they solve. Traps should be placed flush with walls in areas of highest travel (as determined by Inspection). Their presence is typically detected by the occurrence of their droppings, holes chewed into bags and containers, and chewed nesting materials.

They have coarse, brown fur, with lighter fur on the undersides. You can often find smudges as an indication of rats, but they can often stay on walls for a long time, so it might be from an old infestation. It is difficult to find suitable places to lay the tracking powder that will not create a potential problem of contaminating food or materials below the placement sites. Roof rats also have an excellent sense of balance. At birth they are hairless, and their eyes are closed. Exclusion is an important rodent control technique. Emphasis should be placed on the removal of as much harborage as is practical. Roof rats also have an excellent sense of balance.
