ROOF RATS

Roof Rats – Alpha Wildlife

Roof rats, also called ship rats or black rats, are found worldwide. They measure 6 to 20 inches (16 to 50 cm).

When combining their head and body length, their tails are considerably longer than the head and body, measuring 7 to 10 inches (19 to 25 cm). 

They typically weigh 5 to 9 ounces (150 to 250 g), but the weight can increase to 12 ounces (340 g).

Roof rats inhabit the top levels of homes, attics, and rafters and are common in heaps of debris or wood bundles. Since they prefer covered areas, fruit trees, dense vegetation, and shrubbery are prone to damage by them.

They damage materials by gnawing through them and contaminating stored food, causing food poisoning. They potentially serve as vectors of various diseases, such as typhus, rickettsia, rat-bite fever, trichinosis, and salmonellosis.

Roof rats are and hunt in groups of up to ten. They return to the same food source, following the same route between their nest and meal.

They typically dart around like cats when they feel threatened but are active when looking for food or shelter. Roof rats behave aggressively only when threatened, just like other animals. And as a self-defense mechanism, they bite or chase. 

The common signs of roof rat infestation are droppings scattered around the property, tarnished electrical wires, and noise. You can prevent these rodents from invading your property by sealing the cracks and holes. 

Also, remember to trim the shrubs and trees, keep the food hidden, and your garbage tightly covered. But if the infestation is severe, it’s crucial to call professional pest control; they’ll inspect your property and can suggest appropriate treatment.

We were really impressed with Chris Mclain’s knowledge of pest control. He was so professional in his explanation of what we needed to have done. His bid was also much lower than our other bid. We highly recommend this company for any pest elimination you need. Michael and Ashley Robilio.

Matt at Alpha Wildlife is such a nice and professional guy. I always like to hire veteran owned companies and you can tell that he has that demeanor about him. He was able to help with the squirrels in our attic in Bartlett, TN. Great guy.

David and Matt at Alpha Wildlife are awesome to work with. We live in Germantown, TN and had rats in our home. They were quick to diagnose the problem and got the rats out of our home. Great work from both of them.

After calling multiple other companies to remove a possibility rabid racoon from my property and was told they could not get to me until the next day, I called Alpha Wildlife. Chris came out within 30 minutes of my call and caught and removed racoon. He said they would check to make sure it was sick. If so they would euthanize humanely. If it was not sick they would release it back into the wild. This made my daughter very happy. I would highly recommend.
