nest identification

Rodent entry elimination: We see many attempts by handymen, pest control companies, and Genesee 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 Genesee 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.

To prevent a colony from nesting in your home, make sure that all the windows and vents are screened. In dense populations, roof rats will establish a social hierarchy, wherein dominant males mate more than subordinate males. In some situations, pet food and poorly managed garbage may represent a major food resource. In food-processing and storage facilities, they will feed on nearly all food items, though their food preferences may differ from those of Norway rats. The key is to control rat populations, not individual rats. For a one-time fee, we trap and remove all rats, and identify and reconstruct all rat entry points. Sometimes rats get into the kitchen area and feed on stored foods. That is very costly!

Trapping is an effective alternative to pesticides and recommended in some situations. Rats will also drag their tails, leaving a mark between their feet tracks. Their burrowing habitats include soil along building foundations, under woodpiles and other piles of debris. Roof rats can also nest on the ground if necessary. Rats may live up to three years, but a lifespan of one and a half years is more common. There is less tendency to see droppings, urine, or tracks on the floor in buildings because rats may live overhead between floors, above false ceilings, or in utility spaces, and venture down to feed or obtain food.
