Customer Rat Email: I live in an apartment complex & have been hearing feet from the living room to the bedroom. I am terrified! The maintenance guy said yesterday there was a small hole but said it may be a squirrel.
Not buying that. I am afraid that the brown rat may get into my apartment. Is that possible? We have probably several families of brown rats living at our dumpster. From around 4pm till 10 am you will see about 10 brown rats.
Needless to say the trash goes out midday. I don't want to break my lease but these six months have been he'll & yet there are still 6 to go. Any suggestions you have for me to give to the apt. manager?
My Answer: Have the apartment manager hire a competent professional to take care of the rat problem. What else is there to say?
If you need rodent control services in your hometown, click for the National Directory of
Rat Trappers that I've carefully compiled in every USA city.
There are three kinds of rodents commonly found inside buildings (in the attics, walls, and even inside the living space). They are the Roof Rat (Rattus rattus), which is also called the Black Rat, then there's the
Norway Rat (Rattus norvegicus), also known as the Brown Rat, and the House Mouse (Mus musculus). Roof Rats are more common in the south, such as Florida, where I work. The above photo is of a Roof Rat. They are very
common inside attics. The Norway Rat is more common in the northern section of the United States. The Norways are more commonly found underground, in subways and sewers and such. The House Mouse is found everywhere, but
seems more common in the north. All of these rodents thrive in urban areas and love to live in human buildings and houses. They use human garbage (and pantries) as sources of food. All of these rodents are carriers of
several diseases that can infect humans and pets. They contaminate homes and attics. The only way to permanently solve a rat problem is to find out how the rodents are gaining access to the inside of the building, and
fix those openings. Then the remaining rats inside have to be trapped and removed. If you want to learn more, please read my How To Get Rid of Rats page.
