Humane Rat Control in Riverside Acres Florida
Just like Norway rats, roof rats destroy far more foodstuffs by contamination from feces and urine than from consumption.
Rats are nocturnal and are not commonly seen.
When rodent-proofing against roof rats, pay close attention to the roof and roof line areas to assure all accesses are closed.
Control methods must reflect an understanding of the roof rat’s habitat requirements, reproductive capabilities, food habits, life history, behavior, senses, movements, and the dynamics of its population structure.
Rat control requires an integrated approach that includes non-lethal tools such as careful inspections, upgraded sanitation, and rat-proofing structures.

The Norway rat is generally considered the most important rat in the United States.
The Norway rat is also called brown rat, house rat, sewer rat, and wharf rat.
When necessary, roof rats will travel considerable distances (100 to 300 feet [30 to 90 m]) for food.
In food-processing and food-storage facilities, roof rats do about the same type of damage as Norway rats, and damage is visually hard to differentiate.
This cost will vary a great deal, depending on how many repairs are needed, what part of the country you live in, how many rats are in the attic, how many service trips are necessary, if you need cleanup, etc.

Various sounds that indicate rodent activity include gnawing, scratching, and digging noises.
