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.

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. In food-processing and food-storage facilities, roof rats do about the same type of damage as Norway rats, and damage is visually hard to differentiate. Rub marks - rats get coated with dirt and they like to rub against the walls to find their way around a room’s perimeter, since they can't see so well. Some of their habitats include garbage dumps, sewers and fields. 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. Historically, infected fleas have transmitted serious plagues from rats to humans. They also often chew on inedible materials such as books, soap, and cans. Most information on this subject comes from populations confined in cages or outdoor pens.

Rats have acute hearing and can readily detect noises. For more detailed information, see Rodent-proof Construction and Exclusion Methods. Roof rats are not protected by law and can be controlled any time with mechanical or chemical methods. Roof rat droppings are 12 to 13 mm with pointed ends, whereas Norway rat droppings are 18 to 20 mm and capsule shaped. They are sometimes found living in rice fields or around poultry or other farm buildings as well as in industrial sites where food and shelter are available. 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. No chemical repellents are specifically registered for rat control. The elimination of food and water through good warehouse sanitation can do much to reduce rodent infestation. If you have heard noises in your walls or attic, chances are you have rats. Sounds in the attic are often the first indication of the presence of roof rats in a residence. However, when a Norway rat population grows so large that competition from other rats for food, water and harborage increases, some members of the rat community may seek to find new areas to colonize during the daytime.

The first and most crucial thing is to inspect the house and find all possible entry holes, and before starting any trapping, carry out repairs and seal the attic so the rats can't get in again. You can often find smudges as an indication of rats, but they can often stay on walls for a long time, so it might be from an old infestation. They usually don't leave the attic for very long. Strip and destroy all unwanted fruit when the harvest period is over. There are still outbreaks of plague in the United States and around the world today. Distinctions must be made as to which rodenticide (registered product) to use, the method of application or placement, and the amount of bait to apply. The 5 to 8 young in the litter develop rapidly, growing hair within a week. This type of rat control service does not ever solve the problem.
