Rodent entry elimination: We see many attempts by handymen, pest control companies, and Livingston County, Michigan rodent extraction companies that do not include the removal of any roofing material. Often the prevention includes the emptying of a can of foam into the void. Without the removal of roofing material, there is no assurance that rodent entry will be eliminated. When we encounter these substandard attempts, we must first remove the previous application.  When this includes foam, the extraction of the foam takes longer than the application of our wire prevention product.

Rodent elimination by those who are not insured exposes you, the Livingston County, Michigan homeowner, to unnecessary liabilities. It is in your best interest to request proof of insurance for worker’s compensation and public liability before work begins on your roof. It’s doubtful that you will find these companies or individuals carry such insurance.  Those who do not often work in this environment typically cannot afford expensive roofing insurance.

Roof Rats are predominate in coastal areas. Check the repairs you've done, to make sure no new areas have been chewed open. Only construction grade materials are used. The underside of the roof rat’s body is grayish to white. The muzzle of the roof rat is pointed and the overall appearance of the roof rat is much more streamlined and sleek looking than a Norway rat. It actually makes it worse, because the rats are multiplying, dying, defecating, destroying insulation, chewing wires and chewing air ducts, while you wait for your next service. They are constantly exploring surroundings and notice changes and are suspicious by nature. Therefore, the body oils on a rat’s fur gets deposited on corners and edges of walls and around holes and gaps they use to enter into a wall void. They need not be baited. Because of the diseases they can carry, you should also check up on the equipment that you will need to safely trap the rats without any risk to your health. Roof Rats are commonly called black rats and are smaller than Norway rats.

A few instances of first-generation anticoagulant resistance have been reported in roof rats; although not common, it may be underestimated because so few resistance studies have been conducted on this species. Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything. A few baits are strong enough to cause death with a single feeding. Urine Stains & Odors - Rodent urine deposited on rodent runways appear as a line of fine drops or streaks under an ultraviolet flashlight, or black light tool.

However, a few differences must be taken into account. A new second-generation anticoagulant, difethialone, is presently being developed and EPA registration is anticipated in the near future. No rat bait ingredient is universally highly acceptable, and regional differences are the rule rather than the exception. Roof rats are adept climbers and not surprisingly are apt to build their nests in locations above ground. Other indicators can include grease marks along surfaces as well as nests. These techniques include improving sanitation for the affected location, eliminating hiding places, exclusion and may also include lethal methods such as traps and rodenticides. Once established, they readily breed and thrive within buildings, just as Norway rats do. Norway rats are usually active at dusk or during the night and are inactive during daylight hours.
