Rats can cause significant damage to structures inside your Bradenton 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 Bradenton rodent control service and get rid of rats in your house as soon as you realize you have a rat infestation.

Sightings & Sounds - Since rodents are nocturnal and live secretively under normal circumstances, you can be sure that regular daytime rodent sightings indicate a heavy infestation. Removing clutter and any debris that creates hiding places rats can use as harborage sites. Please also read the section on Sanitation, as it is an important consideration in rodent control. 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.

The damage control methods used for roof rats are essentially the same as for Norway rats. See Rat Trapping Tips and Rat Baiting Tips. In some situations in which the rats have been eliminated, cats that are good hunters may prevent reinfestation. Also, roof rats are likely to consume insects. All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice. They need not be baited.

Pesticides must be registered for rat control by federal and/or state authorities and used in accordance with label directions. The traditional style snap traps are still among the best ways of dealing with a rat problem, and these are simple to set and bait, and you should look to place them in areas where the rats are active, so where you can see feces and smudges on the walls. Roof rats will often move into sugarcane and citrus groves. In urban settings, cats and owls prey on roof rats but have little if any effect on well-established populations. Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything. No chemical repellents are specifically registered for rat control. We service 99% of the USA. The Norway rat produces six to eight litters of six to nine young per year.
