Burrows Or Nests Holes in the ground around foundations, plus nests in attics or trees are evidence of a rat problem. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide. There is less tendency to see droppings, urine, or tracks on the floor in buildings because rats may live overhead between floors, above false ceilings, or in utility spaces, and venture down to feed or obtain food. Most rats in attics enter via roof entry points - although they can get into the building a variety of ways. Traps may be nailed to beams or studs and secured to pipes with wires. Bait stations are sometimes difficult to place for roof rat control because of the rodents’ overhead traveling characteristics. Cage trapping is often considered to be the most humane way of dealing with an animal problem, and certainly when it comes to larger animals it is fair to say that it can be effective. Their presence is typically detected by the occurrence of their droppings, holes chewed into bags and containers, and chewed nesting materials.

Rat Diseases


how to dispose of a dead rat

  • Rat Diseases

  • Do rats dig holes? Do they burrow under houses? How deep?

  • Rat Infestation

Roof rats range along the lower half of the East Coast and throughout the Gulf States upward into Arkansas. 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. Check the traps periodically, remove any dead trapped rats, and reset the traps. Trichinosis may be contracted through eating undercooked meat of animals that have fed on rats. They can often be seen at night running along overhead utility lines or fences. Typically, 3 or more litters are produced annually. They need not be baited. A few baits are strong enough to cause death with a single feeding.

What are Rats?

  • Do rats chew on wires? Why?

  • Rat Infestation

  • Do rats bite humans in their sleep?

Anticoagulants (slow-acting, chronic toxicants). Bubonic Plague - the famous disease that nearly wiped out humanity during the Middle Ages was eventually traced back to parasites like fleas carried by rats. Rat guards are not without problems, however, because they may fray the insulation and cause short circuits. Rats may live up to three years, but a lifespan of one and a half years is more common. If you have rats in your home, it's very important to do the job right the first time! I have seen dozens and dozens of cases of nightmare scenarios over many years, in which homeowners have paid pest control companies for a monthly contract that never ends. Elsewhere, reports indicate that roof rats are slowly disappearing from localized areas for no apparent reason. If you do it wrong the first time, you'll just end up paying more later. They lead you to believe there is no other rat control solution.
