Humane Rat Control in Summerport Beach Florida
Like the Norway rat, the roof rat is implicated in the transmission of a number of diseases to humans, including murine typhus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis (food poisoning), rat-bite fever, and plague.
Their tails are longer than the rest of their body and are uniformly dark colored.
Rats, like mice, are omnivorous rodents.
They are considered to be color-blind, responding only to the degree of lightness and darkness of color.
For the characteristics of the various anticoagulant rodenticides see Norway Rats.
Typically, 3 or more litters are produced annually.
Newer rodenticides are much more efficacious and have resulted in the phasing out of these older materials over the last 20 years.
For example, only zinc phosphide can be applied on the ground to control rats in sugarcane or macadamia orchards, and the second-generation anticoagulants, cholecalciferol and bromethalin, can be used only in and around buildings, not around crops or away from buildings even in non crop situations.
Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome is transferred via inhalation of rodent urine, droppings or saliva.
If you have rats in your home, it's very important to do the job right the first time! I have seen dozens and dozens of cases of nightmare scenarios over many years, in which homeowners have paid pest control companies for a monthly contract that never ends.
Elsewhere, reports indicate that roof rats are slowly disappearing from localized areas for no apparent reason.
They prefer to live in high places, but may live in a variety of environments.
The reproductive potential of one female Norway rat is about 50-60 young per year.

Some of the first-generation anticoagulants (pindone and warfarin) are available as soluble rodenticides from which water baits can be prepared.

Walk only on the wooden beams in the attic, never the sheet rock, or you could fall through the ceiling! Be careful, an attic is a hazardous place, where it can be easy to fall, or poke a roofing nail in your head.
Sightings & Sounds - Since rodents are nocturnal and live secretively under normal circumstances, you can be sure that regular daytime rodent sightings indicate a heavy infestation.

Sounds in the attic are often the first indication of the presence of roof rats in a residence.
