Types of Rats
Common rats or brown rats are often referred to as Norway rats which are one of the largest muriods with a head and body length of 28cm longs. Norway rats can also be grey in color. Norway rats can be dangerous as they can expose people to bacteria and diseases such as jaundice, plague, salmonellosis, and rat-bite fever. They can also introduce ticks, mites, and fleas. Norway Rats may enter homes during the night to seek food and return to their burrows. They are typically found nesting crawlspaces, basements, and at times attics and ceilings if the population is larger.
The black rat, ship rat, or house rat is also commonly referred to as roof rats as they are nimble climbers and tend to live in high places such as attics or above drop ceilings. Roof rats are a common long-tailed rodent that is black to light brown in color with a lighter underside. A typical adult is 12.75 to 18.25 cm long, with a tail that’s 15 to 22 cm. Therefore, unlike Norway rats, these rats are smaller in stature with much longer tails. Roof rats will pose a threat as they can chew through plastic, metal pipes, soffit, and eaves of a home. Roof rats also carry diseases and will be most active at night.
Safer Rat Removal Service
Unlike much of our competition, the Dallas Fort Worth Wildlife Control team performs rat removal services without the use of poisons. The most effective method for completely removing rodents is to have a full exclusion professionally performed on your home. The exclusion process is crucial because rats and other rodents can squeeze through very small openings and can chew through just about any material on the exterior of your home. Rats mate every three weeks and take just three more weeks to mature enough to mate themselves so you could only imagine how quickly a rodent infestation could get out of hand. This very reason is why trapping alone will never be effective. If the rats can get in and out to their natural food source they will just ignore the traps for the most part. Even if traps alone were effective in catching the rats they breed faster than you will ever catch them. Between the rapid breeding and the never-ending flow of rodents following the scent trail left behind; a full exclusion combined with a trapping program is the only permanent solution.

Do You Have Mice?
While mice themselves are very elusive, they leave behind telltale signs that are fairly noticeable and easy to spot. Mouse droppings are the most common indicator and are usually found in cabinets, drawers, and other dark, tight places. Urine odors are also commonly noticed around nesting areas and frequented areas. Gnaw marks and small holes are another unmistakable sign that you have a mouse in your home. Holes are typically around dime-size and are located close to the ground and usually in corners or hidden areas.
Gnaw marks are made when a mouse is making a new entry or exit point and when they are building a nest. Because of this, there could be teeth marks in a number of materials like boxes, furniture, clothing, and even carpet and wood doors and baseboards.
Nests are usually about fist-size and are found in dark, tight places and resemble piles of soft trash such as cotton, thread, or paper. Scratching and scurrying late at night or pets that act strangely are also signs that you have a mouse in your home. If you suspect a visitor, call the Dallas Fort Worth Wildlife Control experts at (817) 606-7607 or (972) 954-9244.
