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.

If rats are seen during the day that usually means a very large rodent population is nearby. Western Exterminator is the expert in rat removal and rat control services and we have the latest methods for finding where rats are getting in and preventing them from returning. Traditional baiting or trapping on the ground or floor may intercept very few roof rats unless bait and/or traps are placed at the very points that rats traverse from above to a food resource. Mice can enter an opening as small as 3/8" wide. Rodent-infested pallets of goods can be tarped and fumigated on an individual or collective basis. They may be frightened by sound-producing devices for awhile but they become accustomed to constant and frequently repeated sounds quickly. You will know the bait is working when the bait is no longer being consumed. It is best to contact pest management professionals for an inspection and evaluation.

Norway rats are usually active at dusk or during the night and are inactive during daylight hours. While rats can live in the walls, the kitchen, under the house, etc. the most common place for rats to inhabit in a house is the attic. They are usually a shiny black, but may vary according to diet. Once established, they readily breed and thrive within buildings, just as Norway rats do. Rats have acute hearing and can readily detect noises. Sometimes they transmit disease indirectly, for example, when fleas first bite an infected rat, then a person. Parks with natural and artificial ponds, or reservoirs may also be infested. In the third week they begin to take solid food.

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. Make sure that all doors, windows and screens fit tightly in their frames and repair those that do not. Care must be exercised to ensure that baits are properly placed and the use instructions on the product’s label are strictly followed. These devices must be viewed with considerable skepticism, because research has not proven them effective. Rats that are captured should be humanely destroyed and not released elsewhere because of their role in disease transmission, damage potential, and detrimental effect on native wildlife. Unfortunately, the rat’s great adaptability to varying environmental conditions can sometimes make this information elusive. Only after you've sealed the openings shut, you should start trapping and removal. If you have heard noises in your walls or attic, chances are you have rats. Tracking powders are used much less often for roof rats than for Norway rats because roof rats frequent overhead areas within buildings. The more dominant individuals occupy the better habitats and feed whenever they like, whereas the less fortunate individuals may have to occupy marginal habitat and feed when the more dominant rats are not present. You might find holes in walls and wood.
