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

No, they sleep in the attic all day. In tree crops, some cultural practices can be helpful. Some of the first-generation anticoagulants (pindone and warfarin) are available as soluble rodenticides from which water baits can be prepared. They use their tails for balance while traveling along overhead utility lines. Eliminate vines growing on buildings and, when feasible, overhanging tree limbs that may be used as travel routes. Because of the diseases they can carry, you should also check up on the equipment that you will need to safely trap the rats without any risk to your health. Adult females are able to reproduce at 3-5 months old, can produce up to five litters each year with about 5-8 young in each litter. Certain first-generation anticoagulants are registered as tracking powders for roof rat control; however, none of the second generation materials are so registered.

Visual sightings of live or dead rodents indicate rodent activity. These techniques include improving sanitation for the affected location, eliminating hiding places, exclusion and may also include lethal methods such as traps and rodenticides. Tracking powders play an important role in structural rodent control. The nature of damage to outdoor vegetation can often provide clues as to whether it is caused by the roof or Norway rat. The product label is the law and dictates the product’s location of use and use patterns. Norway rats are also omnivores and will eat just about anything that is found near where humans discard food. The number of litters depends on the area and varies with nearness to the limit of their climatic range, availability of nutritious food, density of the local rat population, and the age of the rat. There is less tendency to see droppings, urine, or tracks on the floor in buildings because rats may live overhead between floors, above false ceilings, or in utility spaces, and venture down to feed or obtain food.

Attach rat guards to overhead utility wires and maintain them regularly. Prune to raise the skirts and remove any nests constructed in the trees. Also, roof rats are likely to consume insects. Female adults will produce about seven litters per year and will mate again about 18 hours after giving birth to her litter of about eight pups. Some of their habitats include garbage dumps, sewers and fields. Rat densities (numbers of rats in a given area) are determined primarily by the suitability of the habitat—the amount of available nutritional and palatable food and nearby protective cover (shelter or harborage). 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. They prefer gnawing on wood but may also damage property, electrical wiring, and food packaging.
