Humane Rat Exterminator in Wewahotee 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.
Both roof rats and Norway rats have a well-developed sense of smell and are wary of new things that are introduced into their home range.
Should Norway rats infest a structure, they most likely will live in the basement or ground floor.
Landscaped residential or industrial areas provide good habitat, as does riparian vegetation of riverbanks and streams.

While you are preventing future rat population growth through inspection, sanitation, and exclusion, you will also want to begin working towards elimination of the population that is already present through trapping and baiting.
The total cost will probably run between $300 - $500 to remove all the rats and seal the entry holes shut, and it may seem more up-front than a low monthly deal, but you've got to do it right, and then you won't have to worry about rats any more.
Visual sightings of live or dead rodents indicate rodent activity.
The only way to solve a rat or mouse problem is to find every last point of entry into the house, and seal it shut.
In most instances, rats are very wary.
Historically, infected fleas have transmitted serious plagues from rats to humans.
They can transmit these diseases through physical contact, bites, by contamination or by fleas that are feeding on the rodent.
They are usually a shiny black, but may vary according to diet.
Some of the more important diseases associated with rats include Rat-Bite Fever and Leptospirosis.
If you have heard noises in your walls or attic, chances are you have rats.
They prefer to consume fruits (sometimes referred to as the “fruit rat” or “citrus rat”) and nuts, although roof rats are omnivorous and will feed on almost anything available to them.
If the food is in an exposed area and too large to be eaten quickly, but not too large to be moved, they will usually carry it to a hiding place before eating it.
The great adaptability of rats to human-created environments and the high fertility rate of rats make for quick recuperation of their populations.
The Norway rat produces six to eight litters of six to nine young per year.
Most information on this subject comes from populations confined in cages or outdoor pens.
In rare instances, isolated populations are found in areas not within their normal distribution range in the United States.
For best results, try several baits to find out which one rats consume most.
The young are able to breed before they are four months old.
Roof Rats are predominate in coastal areas.
