The principle motive of getting rid of rats in your home is because of the potential health risks from human contact with rodents or rodent debris. 

Rats are known to have the ability to carry over 200 disease organisms, many of which can be transmitted to man.  When the rodents wander about your home at night searching for mates and food, these diseases spread. 

Permanent Rat and Mouse Exclusion

Rat Inspection

1. The Interior Inspection requires careful, methodical examinations to be able to detect; places where rats (and mice) can enter; food, water and harborage available to the rats (and mice); signs of rats; and sanitation practices (or habits) which might support rodents or allow them to enter your home. Be on the lookout for rat droppings, nesting, and smudging.

Rat Removal

2. Rat Exit Tunnels are recommended to ensure all rats are removed from your home. Rats can live in your home without needing to leave. Rats tunnels will expedite the rat removal. Locate the rats (and mice) main point of entry into your homes. Once identified, a Rat Exit Tunnel will temporarily install on the outside of this hole, on the outside of the structure. This exit device allows any rats (and mice) still inside to exit without re-entry.

Rat Proofing

4. Animal Proof your home for Rats. Animal proof every gap, crack, and holes the size of a straw. All openings must be properly sealed. Once rats invade your home, they leave there pheromones inside attracting other rats to your home. Suggestion: use a 21 point checklist to idenitfy all existing openings or potentinally vulnerable areas that rats (and mice) are either using now or could use in the future.



Rats and Mice

Roof rats are the most common type of rat in the Eastern part of the United States and they can produce an average of 20 surviving young per year.  Native rat-size rodents can usually raise 3 to 4 surviving young per year.  Young female rats mature with three months and will being to reproduce at this age. 


Both exotic and native rats adapt quickly to most living environments provided by humans (attics, basements, fields, sewers, etc.).  Roof rats will live most of their lives inside buildings.  Squirrels, also nest inside buildings, attics, and chimneys, etc (mainly winter time), but usually feed outside.

 
Roof rats are extremely agile.  They can even leap 3-feet straight up or 4-feet horizontally.  They can also swim ½ mile of open water, they can tread water for days, swim up-current in sewer lines and through toilet traps and survive a fall of more than 50-feet.  Rats can clime the outside of a 3-inch diameter pipe and often walk on wires between buildings.     

Native rats have somewhat large forage areas and can move long distances from an indoor nest to a food source.  They usually range within 100-150 feet of their nest, they might forage outside for food or live outside and forage indoors.
