Wild rodents can cause home damage, contaminate food, and cause illness in people and pets. Rodent infestations are more likely to occur when events, such as flooding, displace them. To avoid rodent infestation, remove potential rodent food and water sources and store food for people and pets in sealed containers. Clear away debris and other material that rodents can hide in. Safely clean up rodent droppings, urine and nesting areas, always wearing gloves and spraying material with disinfectant until thoroughly soaked before attempting to remove or clean.
Rat Control in Dexter Twp –
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.
The efficacy of such products for rats is generally lacking.
Severe pruning and/or removal of certain ornamentals are often required to obtain a degree of lasting rat control.
There are two basic methods of rat population reduction:
Generally, Roof rats stay within 100 miles inland.
Roof rats leave a hind foot track of about 3/4-1 inch.
Products sold as general animal repellents, based on taste and/or odor, are sometimes advertised to repel animals, including rats, from garbage bags.
Usually the peaks in breeding occur in the spring and fall.
For rats, all openings greater than 1/2" should be sealed.
Where anticoagulant resistance is known or suspected, the use of first-generation anticoagulants should be avoided in favor of the second-generation anticoagulants or one of the non anticoagulant rodenticides like bromethalin or cholecalciferol.
The preferred habitat of Norway rats is just about anywhere people reside.
Both roof rats and Norway rats have a well-developed sense of smell and are wary of new things that are introduced into their home range.
The elimination of food and water through good warehouse sanitation can do much to reduce rodent infestation.
Roof rats usually require water daily, though their local diet may provide an adequate amount if it is high in water content.
You will never solve a rat problem until you find all of these openings, and seal them shut with steel, which rats are unable to chew through.
In a human environment, the rodents will consume almost any food to which they have access.
Parks with natural and artificial ponds, or reservoirs may also be infested.
Killing the rats may not be the best answer (it is not as simple as just exterminating them all) .
As mentioned above, roof rats prefer above ground nesting locations in shrubs, trees, and dense vegetation.
It is found in every state.
Other vegetable, melon, berry, and fruit crops occasionally suffer relatively minor damage when adjacent to infested habitat such as riparian vegetation.
While you will not reasonably be able to compensate for every possible rodent entry, you can greatly reduce the ease of entry for rodents (and thereby, reduce the population size) by taking the following measures:
In dense populations, roof rats will establish a social hierarchy, wherein dominant males mate more than subordinate males.
When necessary, roof rats will travel considerable distances (100 to 300 feet [30 to 90 m]) for food.
Excellent climber that can often be found in the upper parts of structures.
In the third week they begin to take solid food.
Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide.
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.
Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything.
The fumigation of structures, truck trailers, or rail cars should only be done by a licensed pest control operator who is trained in fumigation techniques.
