A: Not before it does significant damage. Once rats or mice live in your attic they will usually stay. Rats and mice leave their feces and urine in the insulation and soffit areas. If the rats or mice ever leave other rats and mice will be attracted to that smell and will make your attic their new home.
A: No. Rats and mice multiply. Depending on the species, a rat can have up to 6 litters per year with between 10 and 15 young. Mice can have over 10 litters per year with between 10 and 12 young. Once rats and mice reach sexual maturity they will mate with each other and have litters of their own. It is very important to let the professionals at Allstar Animal Removal trap the mice and rats before the infestation escalates.
A: Rats and mice will do significant damage in your attic and can be very expensive if they are not removed. Rats and mice are rodents and have to continuously gnaw on something to file their teeth down. They will destroy your air conditioning duct work, rip apart electrical wiring, and ruin the dry wall. Mice in kitchens will contaminate stored food. Rats and mice leave their feces and urine all over the insulation and in bad infestations will produce a strong and sometimes unbearable smell. Mice and rat removal is essential to prevent costly damage in the attic.
A: When animals like rats and mice live in the attic they will sometimes die. One of the rats or mice probably fell into a wall and died. If the rat or mouse died in the wall it needs to be removed to get rid of the smell.
A: Depending on the season it could take a very long time for the smell of any dead animal to go away. In the summer a dead animal can smell very strong for a few weeks and then start to get better. In the winter the smell might not be as bad but could last for months. In either case it is important to get the dead animal removed professionally. The smell can be dangerous for someone with respiratory problems and any ecto-parasites that were living on the animal need to be exterminated. Allstar Animal Removal will remove the dead animal, exterminate the ecto-parasites and deodorize to reduce the smell.
A: Rats and mice are the most common pest animal in Florida. They are also responsible for the most home damage cause by any pest animal. Rats and mice chew or gnaw anything they can including electrical wiring, air conditioning duct work, and personal possessions stored in an attic. Mouse and rat removal is necessary and should be left up to the professionals at Allstar Animal Removal.
A: Trapping rats and mice is the most effective way to remove rats and mice. Poison in the attic is never recommended. The rat or mouse will die in the attic or in a wall and smell up the entire house. Then a dead animal removal will be necessary. Other techniques such as sounds and smells rarely work. After the rats and mice are trapped out of the home and a full home exclusion is complete, then poison is recommended to be placed in secure bait stations around the outside of the home. This will control the rat or mouse population around your home. Rat poison can kill a pet so it needs to be maintained by a professional at Allstar Animal Removal.
A: Yes. Rats and mice carry many different diseases. Toxoplasmosis, typhus, trichinosis, rat bite fever, and even the bubonic plague have been found in rats. Salmonellosis is spread by fecal droppings from rats and mice.
A: First call Allstar Animal Removal to perform an inspection of the attic determine if there are other mice or rats in the attic. If a baby rat or mouse was found then there are probably others and they will need to be trapped.
A: Once all of the mice and rat trapping is completed then Allstar Animal Removal will do a full exclusion on your home. Any holes or gaps in the construction the rats and mice were getting in your home or could possibly get into your home will be closed off. Allstar Animal Removal uses the best materials and never uses foam for rats or mice. Once all of the holes are closed then rat control is recommended so that the rats and mice do not get a chance to make a new hole.
A: It is possible for a rats and mice to have rabies but very unlikely. Anything large enough to bite a rat or mouse that would carry the rabies virus would probably kill that rat or mouse.
A: Depending on the species, a rat can have up to 6 litters per year with between 10 and 15 young. Mice can have over 10 litters per year with between 10 and 12 young.
A: Yes. Rats and mice are commonly found in attics. An attic is an ideal shelter for rats and mice. The noises in the attic could also be from opossums, raccoons, gray squirrels, flying squirrels, large lizards, birds, or bats.
A: Yes. Rats and mice can climb up walls into the attic creating significant damage. If rats and mice enter your house you should always have them trapped and removed.
A: Rats and mice will feed on a wide variety of foods ranging from different meats to various fruits. Peanut butter commonly used but not always recommended due to the high occurrence in peanut allergies with humans. Rats are neophobic, which means they are afraid of new things and can be very difficult to trap. The professionals at Allstar Animal Removal are familiar with different baits and techniques to adapt to different situations.
A: Its is very possible. Rats, mice, opossums, raccoons, and squirrels are notorious for digging holes in a/c duct work. Let a professional at Allstar Animal Removal perform an inspection and determine what animal did the damage.
A: Each mice and rat trapping session is unique. Allstar Animal Removal usually traps mice and rats for two weeks but may have the problem solved in the first night. There are multiple factors that take place in mice and rat removal to determine how long it will take to trap the mice and rats.
A: Yes. Call Allstar Animal Removal for different options in removing rats and mice.
A: No. The mice or rats are probably living in a wall and will come into your kitchen to feed. If poison for the mice or rats is used then they could die in the wall and leave a terrible smell. Then a dead animal removal will be necessary. It is never recommended to use poison for rats or mice inside a home.
A: Mice and rats can fit through a hole the size of a quarter. If they can fit their head through a gap or hole then they can fit their entire body through that gap or hole. Call Allstar Animal Removal for an exclusion estimate to close off those gaps and holes.
A: Yes. There can be both rats and mice living in the same attic.
