APPEARANCE

Most rats weigh between 5 ounces and a pound, have grayish fur, and possess scaly, hairless tails. They are larger than mice and can reach nearly a foot in length. As is typical of rodents, rats have protruding incisors, whiskers, and small eyes.

DIET

Rats are omnivorous foragers. The rodents commonly dig through trash bins and landfills in residential areas for easy meals. Both Norway and roof rats also pilfer animal food meant for livestock or cats and dogs. Other favorite meals include snakes, frogs, and even other rodents like mice.

HABITAT

Almost any habitat is suitable for rats, as they adapt with ease to the available resources of a given area. Antarctica is the only continent without rat populations. Desirable habitats provide water and food sources in steady, surplus supplies. As such, rats maintain a cosmopolitan distribution and are regularly found wherever people live.

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

The rodents frequently seek refuge inside warm homes, which provide shelter from potential predators and access to human foods. Both attics and garages are ideal nesting locations inside, while sheds and barns on private properties also provide adequate shelter for the pests.

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

Rats destroy property with their constant gnawing, as they chew through wooden structures and wires. This behavior can lead to electrical shorts and even devastating building fires. Often ridden with disease, rats spread pathogens through their feces and urine, as well as through bites and scratches. They also burrow, which frequently results in damaged structures and landscapes. Gardeners report significant losses at the hands of the rodents, as rats eat vegetables, nuts, and fruits.

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

Maintaining high standards of sanitation helps reduce the possibility of rat infestation. Trash should be disposed of in sealed bins, floors and counters should be cleared of crumbs, and foods should be stored in rodent-proof containers. Finally, attics and yards should be regularly checked for rat activity. Points of entry larger than one-fourth of an inch in diameter must be sealed with wire, caulk, or other suitable materials.

TRAPPING & REMOVAL

TRAPPING & REMOVAL

As they reproduce quickly and cause so much damage, rats create infestations that should be dealt with immediately. Contacting pest control specialists is highly advisable. Historically, professional removal is the only way to ensure complete rat eradication. Trutech is always ready to assist with rat trapping and removal needs.
