Rats can cause significant damage to structures inside your Myakka Head 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 Myakka Head 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.

  • Rat Infestation

As their name suggests, roof rats may be found in elevated areas such as trees, rafters, attics and roofs. Generally, Roof rats stay within 100 miles inland. While you will not reasonably be able to compensate for every possible rodent entry, you can greatly reduce the ease of entry for rodents (and thereby, reduce the population size) by taking the following measures: A mouse's tracks will be much shorter. Grease marks (from the oil and dirt of rats) often appear along walls next to runways. In food-storage facilities, the most prominent sign may be smudge marks, the result of oil and dirt rubbing off of their fur as they travel along their aerial routes. Roof rats are not accomplished swimmers and are not usually found in sewers. Trichinosis may be contracted through eating undercooked meat of animals that have fed on rats.

They lead you to believe there is no other rat control solution. Glue boards will catch roof rats, but, like traps, they must be located on beams, rafters, and along other travel routes, making them more difficult to place effectively for roof rats than for Norway rats or house mice. They also exist all along the Pacific Coast and are found on the Hawaiian Islands (Fig. Rats that are captured should be humanely destroyed and not released elsewhere because of their role in disease transmission, damage potential, and detrimental effect on native wildlife. It has often been said that Norway rats will displace roof rats whenever they come together, but the evidence is not altogether convincing. Sounds in the attic are often the first indication of the presence of roof rats in a residence. Rats leave the attic during the night, to go out and forage for water and food. Remove pre harvest fruits or nuts that drop in backyards.

Resistance is of little consequence in the control of roof rats, especially with the newer rodenticides presently available. They lead you to believe there is no other rat control solution. 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. Roof rats also have an excellent sense of balance. Usually the peaks in breeding occur in the spring and fall. A new second-generation anticoagulant, difethialone, is presently being developed and EPA registration is anticipated in the near future. The 5 to 8 young in the litter develop rapidly, growing hair within a week. Since roof rats rarely dig burrows, burrow fumigants are of limited use; however, if they have constructed burrows, then fumigants that are effective on Norway rats, such as aluminum phosphide and gas cartridges, will be effective on roof rats.
