Humane Rat Control in Shadow Hills Mobile Home Park Florida
Rats themselves - if you see one rat, there's a good chance there are a bunch more hiding in nests or burrows that you can't see.
METHOD OF CONTROL: First of all, mothballs or ammonia won't make them leave, nor will ultrasonic sound emitters or strobe lights.
In landscaped yards they often live in overgrown shrubbery or vines, feeding on ornamentals, vegetables, fruits, and nuts.
Norway rats can climb, but not as well as roof rats, and are strong swimmers.
Observation Rats are not usually seen during the day unless disturbed from their protective harborage or because of intolerable competition from other rats.
Eliminate vines growing on buildings and, when feasible, overhanging tree limbs that may be used as travel routes.
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.
At least in some parts of the United States and elsewhere in the world, the methods used to control rats have reduced Norway rat populations but have permitted roof rats to become more prominent, apparently because they are more difficult to control.
Anticoagulant paraffin-type bait blocks provide an alternative to bait stations containing pelleted or loose cereal bait.
They also consume seeds, nuts, berries, and insects.
Overhead trap sets are particularly useful for roof rats.
The muzzle of the roof rat is pointed and the overall appearance of the roof rat is much more streamlined and sleek looking than a Norway rat.
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.
Removing clutter and any debris that creates hiding places rats can use as harborage sites.
A few instances of first-generation anticoagulant resistance have been reported in roof rats; although not common, it may be underestimated because so few resistance studies have been conducted on this species.
POISON IS A HORRIBLE IDEA FOR MANY MANY REASONS - poison won't solve the problem, and it'll just create more problems.
They may eat the bark of smaller citrus branches and girdle them.
Check the traps periodically, remove any dead trapped rats, and reset the traps.
Some roof rat populations are skittish and will modify their travel routes and feeding locations if severely and frequently disturbed.
Trapping is the preferred method of indoor control.
Seal any openings larger than ¼ inch with caulk, wood, mesh, or other appropriate materials.
The young are born in a nest about 21 to 23 days after conception.
As mentioned above, roof rats prefer above ground nesting locations in shrubs, trees, and dense vegetation.
And most of all, you want someone who will do this complex work correctly.
