Humane Rat Control in Sandy Shores Mobile Home Park Florida
Inspection is an important first step in getting rid of rats.
Trapping is an effective alternative to pesticides and recommended in some situations.
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.
Another important treatment component is customer education so the customer understands the concepts of the proposed control program.
Rat droppings are small, dark, cylindrically shaped, and are about one-half inch to three-fourths inch long with blunt ends.
In homes, the attic and garage rafters close to the infestation are the best trapping sites.
Exclusion and sealing of sites greater than ½ inch (about the size of a dime) using screens, flashing, door sweeps and other materials to keep rats from entering a structure.
Rat treatment involves both non-chemical and chemical methods.
Adult roof rats usually live about one year.
There are two basic methods of rat population reduction:
Droppings - Roof Rat droppings are 1/4 to 1/2 inch in length, capsule shaped, with blunt ends.
The food habits of roof rats outdoors in some respects resemble those of tree squirrels, since they prefer a wide variety of fruit and nuts.
If rats are seen during the day that usually means a very large rodent population is nearby.
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.
Once you know the location of the rats, you can set traps or place bait.
In landscaped yards they often live in overgrown shrubbery or vines, feeding on ornamentals, vegetables, fruits, and nuts.
Successful long-term rat control is not simple.
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.
Once established, they readily breed and thrive within buildings, just as Norway rats do.
The young may continue to nurse until 4 or 5 weeks old.
They are very strong, and can injure your fingers.
Statisticians estimate that rats destroy 20 percent of the world's food supply every year by feeding, and indirectly through contamination.
Rat control requires an integrated approach that includes non-lethal tools such as careful inspections, upgraded sanitation, and rat-proofing structures.
Rat densities (numbers of rats in a given area) are determined primarily by the suitability of the habitat—the amount of available nutritional and palatable food and nearby protective cover (shelter or harborage).
