Types of Rats

Roof Rat

The Roof Rat and the Norway Rat are one of the most common species we treat in and around the Georgetown area. These two rats are quite opposites when it comes to their behavior and preference. Therefore specialized knowledge is needed to effectively remove them for good. You may know these rats as brown and black rats. Truth to be told is that the color of their fur can differ a lot so the color wouldn’t be the best way to identify them with. Roof Rats, as the name might imply, prefer heights over staying low. These types of rats can often be found in elevated areas in the property. Since they are excellent climbers they have no problem at all getting to the attic area or other areas of the house. 

Norway Rat

Norway Rats on the other side is the opposite. These rats prefer the ground and often sneak into spaces that are on the ground floor. They are also much larger and bulkier in size compared to the roof rat. Norway rats often enter garage doors and hide deep inside the garage to avoid human detection. They can even squeeze through holes and structural gaps. For the average property owner removing these two types of rats will be very difficult since they conceal themselves in hard-to-reach places. For this, the help and assistance of Pest Control Georgetown are required.

To find out if you have a rodent infestation, it is usually a good idea to look for signs of occupation. Finding a chewed object is one sure way to know that you are dealing with a rodent. Finding droppings and urine on and around the property is another red flag that shows that you’re dealing with rodents. While the droppings of a Norway rat and a Roof rat can differ, some clues about their size might make the identification process a little bit easier.

The Main Differences Between Rats And Mice

Rats act on caution and try to avoid human contact as much as possible. They are quite domineering and are very destructive. Compare this to the average house mouse who likes to spend its time indoors. Mice on the other hand are quite the explorers and will investigate anything new. This goes without saying that it is still careful when it decides to move. Mice prefer to eat cereal, grains, nuts, and berries. They will look for materials such as shredded paper or cardboard around the house to make and build its nest with. Seeing shredded material is a clear sign that you are dealing with an infestation. The rat is much larger than the tiny house mouse and will attack when it feels the need to do so. That is why, when you see a rat, make sure to stay away from it. Mice are active from dusk till dawn and are classified as nocturnal creatures. Even though virtually blind, mice have an excellent sense of smell and hearing to make up for the lack of sight. It would not be considered odd if you do see a mouse roaming around in the day because of the abundance of food. One clear indication of rat presence is to see droppings which are a more oblong shape and is much bigger than mice droppings which are usually the size of a grain of rice. Because rats prefer to stay outdoors, burrows can be sighted outside around the yard.

What Attracts Rats To Your Yard And Home

There might be several causes as to why rats and mice are attracted to your yard. One of the main reasons is often that rats and mice seek shelter from the harsh environment that Ontario has to offer throughout the region. By being in a warm and comfortable place, rats and mice can find the opportunity to breed and to build nests in peace, with the source of food a few meters away. This combination makes it likely for rats and mice to build nests in your home and to give birth to several offspring which can go on for generations. The availability of water also seems to be a determining factor. Leaky pipes or moisture built up elsewhere on the property can be a good way to quench the rodents’ thirst. The diet of the rat is more based on availability than it is on preference. They are known to consume feces, eat from dumpsters, and our trash cans. What might be trash for you can be considered a multi-course feast for the rat. To make matters even worse is that rats and mice are known to be carriers of several diseases such as salmonellosis, leptospirosissis, and tularemia and being the cause of the infamous plague, just to give you an idea what they have in store.

When people first suspect a rodent presence, it is usually by hearing these rodents nibbling. When they move you hear a slight thumping sound as they make their way from one side to the other side. As they inspect the matter more closely, they might stumble on bite marks, droppings, and chewed through materials throughout the house. their suspicion is now becoming more concrete. They go to their local hardware store and buy products based on the clerk’s recommendation and come back with repellants, traps, and bait. After one catch or two the problem seems resolved, but not until long…

The rodents come back and that means another trip to the store losing more money each time they go. After exhausting all their resources, they slowly come to realize that this was indeed counter-productive. This is where professionals need to step in. Technicians are licensed professionals by the Ministry of Environment in Ontario. This accreditation allows professionals to buy and deploy truly potent formulations that are effective. Not only that, but technicians also have years of experience and are specialized to seek out various pests and are well-acquainted with the behavioral and breeding patterns which makes eradicating them from your property so much easier. Also, technicians can prevent any future infestations by proofing and sealing previous entry-points that the rodents used to gain access to the property in the first place along with any newly discovered entry-points that seem prone to intrusion. Hiring a pest control service is truly worth the investment in getting your peace of mind back!

Rat Extermination Process

INSPECTION

EXTERMINATION

EXCLUSION

Inspection 

To determine and find out where the rats enter and exit the property, we conduct a comprehensive exterior inspection. We look for holes, cracks, crevices, vents, and structural gaps around the perimeter of the premises. We then report our findings with photographic evidence and offer recommendations. This creates transparency and understanding between the property owner and the technician throughout the process.

Extermination 

After the inspection, we will discuss our next step in the extermination process. Depending on the situation and need of the treatment, we will strategically place tamper-proof bait traps and rodenticide in and around the property to yield maximum results. Tamper-proof bait traps cannot be accessed by children and pets. Keys are needed for this that only the technician can open.

Exclusion 

Once rat activity has ceased, our technician will then move on to the exclusion processes. This includes sealing up of entry-points. We look for holes, cracks, crevices, vents, and structural gaps and other points of entry that seem prone to intrusion and seal them with the help of galvanized steel mesh. 

Why You Need a Professional Rat Control

When people find out that they have a rat presence in their home, their first instinct is to go to the hardware store and try to resolve the problem on their own by buying all sorts of generic or branded products such as repellants, traps, and baits. Unsure of what to expect, they place the bait and apply the repellants around the home and wait. Few days pass by and they see result thinking that takes care of the problem in its entirety. Without even realizing it, a few dozen other rats may be in hiding. Being determined, you come back with not just one, but several traps, baits, or repellants, or even all three.
