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

Norway rats are also omnivores and will eat just about anything that is found near where humans discard food. Once established, they readily breed and thrive within buildings, just as Norway rats do. In rare instances, isolated populations are found in areas not within their normal distribution range in the United States. Rodent-proofing against roof rats usually requires more time to find entry points than for Norway rats because of their greater climbing ability. Floor drains and sewer pipes should have tight-fitting grates with openings less than 1/4 inch in diameter. Control methods must reflect an understanding of the roof rat’s habitat requirements, reproductive capabilities, food habits, life history, behavior, senses, movements, and the dynamics of its population structure. Emphasis should be placed on the removal of as much harborage as is practical. Rodents sniff out the bait and return to feed upon it continuously until the poison kills them. This means there are no more rats to feed on it because they are dead. Roof rats leave a hind foot track of about 3/4-1 inch. The reproductive potential of one female Norway rat is about 50-60 young per year.
