  • What if you are bitten by a rat

In most of our urban areas, Norway rats may be seen scurrying around after dark looking for food in garbage cans and other places where human refuse is found. Breeding seasons vary in different areas. They can often be seen at night running along overhead utility lines or fences. The nature of damage to outdoor vegetation can often provide clues as to whether it is caused by the roof or Norway rat. Rats usually begin searching for food shortly after sunset. The key is to control rat populations, not individual rats. Sometimes they transmit disease indirectly, for example, when fleas first bite an infected rat, then a person. The long, sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) near their nose and the guard hairs on their body are used as tactile sensors.

  • Can rats swim? Do they drown?

The nature of damage to outdoor vegetation can often provide clues as to whether it is caused by the roof or Norway rat. Droppings are another good indicator of roof rat activity. Rats contaminating food or food preparation surfaces can transmit food poisoning. Caution should be taken to avoid trapping nontarget species such as tree squirrels. The total cost will probably run between $300 - $500 to remove all the rats and seal the entry holes shut, and it may seem more up-front than a low monthly deal, but you've got to do it right, and then you won't have to worry about rats any more. They prefer to consume fruits (sometimes referred to as the “fruit rat” or “citrus rat”) and nuts, although roof rats are omnivorous and will feed on almost anything available to them. There are holes all over - missing roof vent screens, plumbing stacks, gaps between the roof and fascia board, gaps in the siding, areas where pipes go into the house, etc. 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.

  • Can rats hurt you?

Leptospirosis - a disease transmitted from contact with rat urine that is serious enough to cause humans to bleed in the lungs. Please also read the section on Sanitation, as it is an important consideration in rodent control. Care must be exercised to ensure that baits are properly placed and the use instructions on the product’s label are strictly followed. 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. There are still outbreaks of plague in the United States and around the world today. 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. When practical, remove extraneous vegetation adjacent to the crop that may provide shelter for rats. 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.
