Rats are rodents that consume roughly 10% of their body weight each day. They are primarily nocturnal pests that are often first detected when rummaging through interior walls, attics, or crawlspaces. Based on their reproductive capacity, contacting a professional pest controller in a timely manner is critical to avoiding a major infestation. 

Are you struggling with rats, mice, or other rodents? Speak with a licensed pest controller for professional assistance.

How To Tell If It's Rats On Your Property

Some of the most common species of rats in the Tampa region include Norway rats, roof rats, woodrats, and several others. Rats are larger than mice, often extending more than six inches in length. Rats have long tails that are typically hairless, and these creatures tend to constantly be chewing on things. 

The Damage And Dangers Rats Can Cause For Your Property

Rats can damage drywall, wiring, insulation, and many other materials that exist in your home. They also pose health risks, including rat-bite fever, salmonellosis, and other dangerous concerns. In many cases, properties that allow rats access to trash containing food scraps are inadvertently attracting them.

Four Effective Rodent Exclusion Tips To Keep The Rats From Coming Back 

Preventative measures that exclude rats are effective and are much easier than facing a deeply entrenched interior infestation. Some of the best practices for limiting the presence of these pests include: 

  • Closely assess the condition of the roof, gutter systems, and other upper exterior areas for any evidence of damage that could allow roof rats to breach the structure. 
  • Be sure to conduct an assessment of the base of the structure near the foundation for any development of cracks that might allow access. 
  • Keep debris and clutter away from the structure to limit hiding spots and keep tree branches trimmed back to avoid roof rats from climbing them. 
  • Limit food sources in the yard area by placing trash in durable containers, promptly removing any fallen fruits, and cleaning up thoroughly after barbeques and picnics. 

Rats are creatures that will take the opportunity to move indoors if they can gain entry. Therefore, we always recommend efforts to prevent intrusions.
