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.

Roof rats range along the lower half of the East Coast and throughout the Gulf States upward into Arkansas. Nests inside and under buildings, or in piles of rubbish or wood. The number of litters depends on the area and varies with nearness to the limit of their climatic range, availability of nutritious food, density of the local rat population, and the age of the rat. Pelleted or loose cereal anticoagulant baits are used extensively in tamper-resistant bait boxes or stations for a permanent baiting program for Norway rats and house mice. Roof rats are susceptible to all of the various anticoagulant rodenticides, but less so than Norway rats. 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. Rats have been plaguing humans for centuries, famous for their continuously-growing sharp teeth, their desire for human food, their tendency to get into homes and buildings and create nests and their health problems - rats are the essence of a pest. In residences where rats may be living in the attic and feeding outdoors, the damage may be restricted to tearing up insulation for nesting or gnawing electrical wiring.

POISON IS A HORRIBLE IDEA FOR MANY MANY REASONS - poison won't solve the problem, and it'll just create more problems. Once you're satisfied that there is no more evidence of rats, and you are not trapping any new rats, you should clean the attic or whatever area they were living in, to remove the contamination and biohazard, and also to eliminate the rat scent, which will attract new rats to try to chew their way into the house in the future. The wildlife operator will seal shut all the rat entry points, and that's the ONLY way to solve a rat problem forever. Roof rats have hairless, scaly tails that are longer than their heads and bodies. Other indicators can include grease marks along surfaces as well as nests. Roof rats entering homes are generally found in raised or secure enclosures such as walls, cabinets, attics, and false ceilings. Norway rats are also omnivores and will eat just about anything that is found near where humans discard food. From causing plague epidemics (the "Black Death" of Europe) to rat-bite fever, whether feeding on stored grain or gnawing electric wires, rats are enemies of humankind.

They also feed on a variety of vegetative parts of ornamental and native plant materials. Generally, a few more feedings are necessary to produce death with the first-generation anticoagulants (warfarin, pindone, diphacinone, and chlorophacinone) but this is less significant with the second-generation anticoagulants (bromadiolone and brodifacoum). Norway rats are usually active at dusk or during the night and are inactive during daylight hours. Roof rats are susceptible to all of the various anticoagulant rodenticides, but less so than Norway rats. Unfortunately, the rat’s great adaptability to varying environmental conditions can sometimes make this information elusive. If you have heard noises in your walls or attic, chances are you have rats. Scratching sounds - if you hear gnawing and the sounds of scampering in the walls or around the house you might have rats. There's nothing fun about finding rats around your home or property.
