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.

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.

Lives up to one year. The Norway rat is generally considered the most important rat in the United States. They may live in the landscaping of one residence and feed at another. Use a powerful flashlight to spot rats and to determine travel routes for the best locations to set baits and traps. The damage control methods used for roof rats are essentially the same as for Norway rats. The older rodenticides, formerly referred to as acute toxicants, such as arsenic, phosphorus, red squill, and ANTU, are either no longer registered or of little importance in rat control. Then they return to the attic. Specifications may vary depending on bait manufacturer even though the active ingredient may be the same.

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. One of the more common techniques for bait use is to place the bait formulation in a tamper proof rodent bait station that protects the bait from accidental exposure to non-target animals or people. This is a great supplementary treatment to trapping when you are dealing with larger rodent populations, or for outdoor populations. In rare instances, isolated populations are found in areas not within their normal distribution range in the United States. In the third week they begin to take solid food. Use a powerful flashlight to spot rats and to determine travel routes for the best locations to set baits and traps. Read more about where rats live. For further information see Norway Rats.

Snap traps are actually the very best way to do it. Norway rats are also omnivores and will eat just about anything that is found near where humans discard food. 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. Rats, like mice, are omnivorous rodents. Look for fresh droppings. Unless the suitability of the rat’s habitat is destroyed by modifying the landscaping, improving sanitation, and rat-proofing, control methods must be unrelenting if they are to be effective. Remove pre harvest fruits or nuts that drop in backyards. However, rats are a nuisance animal wherever you choose to release them, and they also have a particularly low rate of survival once they have been relocated, so in most cases using humane lethal traps will be the best way to deal with the infestation.
