While you will not reasonably be able to compensate for every possible rodent entry, you can greatly reduce the ease of entry for rodents (and thereby, reduce the population size) by taking the following measures: All openings greater than 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice. Roof rats can be carriers of diseases. Rickettsial Diseases - various forms of Typhus fall into this category and can also be carried by rat-borne parasites. Our professional wildlife professionals may not show you how to kill the rats but instead use rat repellents, rat fumigants and rat trapping systems to ensure the effectiveness of the rat control method, without physically harming the rats. Place traps where they will intercept rats on their way to food, such as on overhead beams, pipes, ledges, or sills frequently used as travel routes (Fig. Norway rats build their nests in underground burrows where they mate, rear their young, store food and seek refuge from predators.

Rat Bite Fever - from the saliva of a rat, it comes from rats biting humans. To prevent a colony from nesting in your home, make sure that all the windows and vents are screened.
