With our vast knowledge of rat behavior and building construction, we will inspect every inch of your house or building – from top to bottom – and find every possible entry point. Once we have permanently sealed up all the holes, typically with heavy steel mesh or metal plating that rats can’t chew through, then we can start the Riverside Acres rodent trapping process.

The best rat trap: Believe it or not, the tried-and-true, low-tech mouse trap (snap trap) – a simple piece of wood with a spring-loaded bar – is the most effective and humane way to kill a rat. Snap traps kill rats instantly, they are inexpensive and reusable, and they can fit in small spaces. Do not worry about the bait – you can use anything from peanut butter to fruit to – yes, cheese.

All anticoagulants provide excellent roof rat control when prepared in acceptable baits. 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. 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. In some agricultural areas, roof rats cause significant losses of tree crops such as citrus and avocados and, to a lesser extent, walnuts, almonds, and other nuts. Liquid baits may be an effective alternative in situations where normal baits are not readily accepted, especially where water is scarce or where rats must travel some distance to reach water. In urban settings, cats and owls prey on roof rats but have little if any effect on well-established populations. Again, if you are having trouble doing it yourself, you can give a professional a call off of my directory of expert Rat Removal Companies, and see what they have to say, or schedule a service appointment to get the problem correctly and permanently taken care of. Use proper garbage and refuse disposal containers and implement exterior sanitation programs.

  • The Invasion Of Roof Rats

Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences. Roof rats will often move into sugarcane and citrus groves. Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption. The first and most crucial thing is to inspect the house and find all possible entry holes, and before starting any trapping, carry out repairs and seal the attic so the rats can't get in again. Citrus trees, having very low hanging skirts, are more prone to damage because they provide rats with protection. Then the rats should be trapped and removed. They also feed on a variety of vegetative parts of ornamental and native plant materials. Traps should be placed flush with walls in areas of highest travel (as determined by Inspection).

In sugarcane, they move into the field as the cane matures and feed on the cane stalks. They prefer gnawing on wood but may also damage property, electrical wiring, and food packaging. Most information on this subject comes from populations confined in cages or outdoor pens. Without this knowledge, both time and money are wasted, and the chances of failure are increased. While they may not kill the stalk outright, secondary organisms generally invade and reduce the sugar quality. 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. They may eat the bark of smaller citrus branches and girdle them. Remove pre harvest fruits or nuts that drop in backyards.
