Humane Rat Trapper in Four Corners Florida
In controlling roof rats with rodenticides, a sharp distinction must be made between control in and around buildings and control away from buildings such as in landfills and dumps, along drainage ditches and streams, in sewer water evaporation ponds, and in parks.
Lights (flashing or continuously on) may repel rats at first, but rats will quickly acclimate to them.
Roof rats range along the lower half of the East Coast and throughout the Gulf States upward into Arkansas.
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.
Roof rats are adept climbers and not surprisingly are apt to build their nests in locations above ground.
Selection of rodenticides and bait products must be done according to label instructions.
Grease marks are produced as the rodent travels along an edge, and the oils in their fur are deposited.
The fumigation of structures, truck trailers, or rail cars should only be done by a licensed pest control operator who is trained in fumigation techniques.
Nests and Burrows - check behind shelves, boxes, behind the fridge, anywhere that a rat might like to use as a hiding space.
They also exist all along the Pacific Coast and are found on the Hawaiian Islands (Fig.
It is recommended for use in homes because, unlike with poison baits, there is no risk of a rat dying in an inaccessible place and creating an odor problem.
There is often a correlation between rat problems and the keeping of dogs, especially where dogs are fed outdoors.
Setting a trap to collect a few specimens may be the only sure way to identify the rat or rats involved.
They may eat the bark of smaller citrus branches and girdle them.
Hantavirus - a potentially lethal virus if humans come in contact with rat urine or feces.
Bait blocks are easy to place in small areas and difficult-to-reach locations out of the way of children, pets, and nontarget species.
There are two basic methods of rat population reduction:
For example, only zinc phosphide can be applied on the ground to control rats in sugarcane or macadamia orchards, and the second-generation anticoagulants, cholecalciferol and bromethalin, can be used only in and around buildings, not around crops or away from buildings even in non crop situations.
It is also capable of transmitting a number of diseases to domestic animals and is suspected in the transference of ectoparasites from one place to another.
Their design makes them more rat-specific when used out-of-doors than ordinary snap traps that sometimes take birds.
Norway rats are also omnivores and will eat just about anything that is found near where humans discard food.
Baiting - This method uses poisons, or rodenticides, to attract and kill rodents.
When rodent-proofing against roof rats, pay close attention to the roof and roof line areas to assure all accesses are closed.
The social behavior of free-living roof rats is very difficult to study and, as a result, has received less attention than that of Norway rats.
