are house rats dangerous

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

Dense shrubbery, vine-covered trees and fences, and vine ground cover make ideal harborage for roof rats. Where an entire warehouse may be fumigated for insect control with a material such as methyl bromide, all rats and mice that are present will be killed. Because roof rats are fast and agile, they are not easy prey for mammalian or avian predators. A control operation, therefore, must reduce numbers to a very low level; otherwise, rats will not only reproduce rapidly, but often quickly exceed their former density for a short period of time. All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice. Roof rat droppings are 12 to 13 mm with pointed ends, whereas Norway rat droppings are 18 to 20 mm and capsule shaped. The elimination of food and water through good warehouse sanitation can do much to reduce rodent infestation. Norway rats are also omnivores and will eat just about anything that is found near where humans discard food.

Roof Rats are predominate in coastal areas. Pesticides must be registered for rat control by federal and/or state authorities and used in accordance with label directions. Inspection is an important first step in getting rid of rats. Urine Stains & Odors - Rodent urine deposited on rodent runways appear as a line of fine drops or streaks under an ultraviolet flashlight, or black light tool. In residences where rats may be living in the attic and feeding outdoors, the damage may be restricted to tearing up insulation for nesting or gnawing electrical wiring. Proper ladder safety is a must, as is roof safety. Most information on this subject comes from populations confined in cages or outdoor pens. Females can breed year-round.
