Siesta Key & Longboat Key Rodent exterminators

Rodents and rats get into your Siesta Key houses, attics, walls and floors looking for food and shelter. The rodent is remarkably well-adapted for living year-round in your Longboat Key attics, garages, walls and other structures. Siesta Key and Longboat Key homeowners are especially likely to notice rats and rodents during late fall, following their fall migration indoors in search of warmth, food and shelter. Once we start to having temperatures drop, the rats and rodents will start to look for shelter. Unfortunately, it may be in your Siesta Key or Longboat Key home. Once rats and other rodents become established inside a home, they can be extremely difficult to control. Rats and other rodents reproduce 6-8 times per year. Rats and rodents can gnaw through electrical wiring drywall and wood support beams. Rodents will continue to chew in order to grind down their teeth. Rats and Rodents also can transmit diseases, most notably salmonella. The droppings they leave behind can also be a health hazard.

Our rodent exterminators offer a total solution to your Siesta Key and Longboat Key mice, mouse, rodent or rat problem. The first step with rodent control is to eliminate the rodents living in your Siesta Key or Longboat Key home.

There are multiple ways of doing this. Our rat trappers use many different types of baits, live traps, snap traps and repellents. The most effective way of extermination rats and other rodents is to use poison baits. When our rodent removal experts do this, we have a licensed professional place the bait in boxes that children or pets cannot get into. We also use a mild bait that cannot cause secondary toxic transfer (ie, your dog eats a poisoned mouse). The poison bait is digested and dissolved inside the mouse or rat.

Our rat exterminators check the bait stations located at your Siesta Key or Longboat Key home weekly. Once our rat removal technicians have eliminated the problem rats or other rodents, there will be no chewing on the bait, the noise in the walls, floors or attic goes away and you don't see any rats or rodents in your Siesta Key or Longboat Key house, our rodents control experts can then repair all the foundation gaps, cracks and voids they were using to enter your home by way of what's called a rodent seal-up / rodent or critter proofing.

Siesta Key Rat Control:  Our Siesta Key rat removal service is performed differently than most rat exterminators. Our trappers focus on the cause of the problem, which for most homes are small structural defects that allow rodents to get into the home or attic.

Because Siesta Key rats are active throughout the year, periodically check for signs of their presence. Once rats have invaded your garden or landscaping, unless your house is truly rodent proof, it is only a matter of time before you find evidence of them indoors. Experience has shown it is less time consuming to control Siesta Key ratsbefore their numbers get too high, and fewer traps and less bait will be required if control is started early.

how to kill rats

Mouse Problems In Your Longboat Key home: Trapping is the safest and most effective method for controlling mice and rats in and around attics, garages, and other structures. Because rat control traps can be used over and over, rat rapping is less costly than poisoning mice. Traps can be set and left indefinitely in areas where rats have been a problem in the past, such as being pests in the attic. The classic rat-size snap trap is used for rats, and the newer rat traps with large plastic treadles are especially effective. Generally young rats cannot be trapped until they are about a month old, which is when they leave the nest to venture out for food.

What about Roof Rat urine you ask?

Vicious rumor mongering, such as the snippet of a supposed "news" article has given roof rat urine a bad name.

A woman died after drinking a can of soda! apparently, she didn't clean the top before drinking from the can. The top was encrusted with dried roof rat's urine which is toxic and obviously lethal!!!!!  Canned drinks and other foodstuff are stored in warehouses and containers that are usually infested with rodents and then get transported to the retail outlets without being properly cleaned.

In case anyone was wondering why rats never took off as popular domestic pets, consider briefly their association with death and disease. With a list of horrors such as the bubonic plague, hantavirus and leptospirosis credited to them, it's no wonder people will so easily accept the notion that rats in and of themselves are lethal.  The fact is, the urine of a healthy rat is quite safe to consume... though I would recommend moderating your daily intake.
