Roof rats are commonly called black rats or ship rats. Their tails are longer than their body. Roof rats mostly find shelter in upper parts of homes and buildings, and once roof rats get inside, they can cause serious damage and spread dangerous diseases.
Rats in Attic?
Rats tend to burrow into the insulation and tear it up pretty quickly. Our Memphis rat removal professionals trap, remove and provide prevention from additional rats entering your home from your attic, crawl spaces, shingles and vents.
>> It is crucial that you take action immediate for rodent control as rats and mice are known to quickly grow in numbers.
Having pests and rodents in your home is bad for your health, along with any domesticated animals. Rodents such as rats can cause significant damage to wiring in your home and the structure of your home.
Memphis Rat Removal Specialists
Rats are smart animals and can find clever ways to get into your home. If you’ve heard noise from them, have odor coming into your home, or noticed rat droppings, our experienced rat trapping and rat exclusion team can get rid of rats in your home and uncover rats in hiding, if this is the case. Typically, you will see signs of burrowing into your insulation and their droppings scattered about. Some other common signs of roof rats are brown staining on pipes in the attic. This staining is a sign of frequent movement. Usually rats follow the same paths, and the stains are caused by their undersides rubbing on the PVC pipes while they scurry along.
Alpha Wildlife relies on years of expertise in dealing with raccoons, snakes, squirrels, possums or other animals. Learning their habits help us guarantee we can find where they are invading your home and the best place to try and trap the rats. We also remove dead rats from your Memphis area home.
Repair Damage & Rat Prevention
Rats are hard to keep out of homes as they can easily squeeze through gaps in shingles, pipes, gaps beneath doors, vents and other cracks in the wood on your home. The best way to keep rats out of your home or commercial building is to find their food source and eliminate it, then determine all entry points and seal them off. All rodents leave a scented trail that attracts other rodents, even if you remove the rodent you heard or saw. Chances are other rodents will just take their place if you didn’t eliminate the food source -and- the entry points.
A professional rat removal specialist has the tools, safety equipment, chemicals and specialized techniques to exclude and do a complete preventative rat-proofing of your home. It takes an experienced technician to recognize all of the common places where rats enter your home and fix them! Holes, even the size of a nickel, are perfect magnets for rats to enter your home! Rats leave droppings behind, urine stains, odor, and they chew along pathways. Our Alpha Wildlife team will treat your home with the right chemicals and products to prevent possible infestations in the future. We know which odor elimination and sanitization chemicals are safe to use around your pets and family.
Rats carry all sorts of parasites like ticks, fleas, mites and other dangerous pests. Rats also transfer these parasites and diseases through droppings, urine, bites, fleas and physical contact. Some of the diseases rats spread are salmonellosis (food contamination), rat-bite fever, leptospirosis, murine typhus, plague, toxoplasmosis, and trichinosis. Always wear a mask and gloves if you attempt to trap and get rid of rats yourself.
A preventative parasite treatment should be added to your attic or crawlspace after rats are trapped and taken away. Learn more about the rats and other wildlife here.
