Mice and rats are a problem when they find their way into your home. They like to be near humans so that they have a ready supply of food. This has earned them the term "commensal," which means "to share one's table." At Dependable Exterminating we are your Rat Pest Control Specialist.
Rats In New York City
The two most common rats in Manhattan NY are the Norway Rat and the Roof Rat. Norway rats prefer to construct their homes beneath the edges of sidewalks, sewers and in the subways of NYC. As is implied by their name, roof rats prefer higher habitats. They live in elevated areas of human homes. Roof rats can be found living in attics, rafters, eaves and on roofs. The Norway Rat is the most common of the two.
When Norway rats invade buildings in New York City NY, they usually remain in the basement or ground floor. These rats are known for the damage they cause by chewing on materials, urinating on food and eating stored foods. They have also been known to chew on wires, which can cause fires to start.
Roof Rats are excellent climbers and get their name because they usually live high off the ground, like on the roof of a building. They have very poor vision and are color blind, but they have extremely strong senses of hearing, smell, touch and taste.
Removing Rats can sometimes be as easy as setting a Rat Trap; but a larger infestation (especially with Norway Rats) can be larger issue. Norway Rats, especially, are smart and can learn to avoid traps and Bait Stations. At Dependable Exterminating We have the know how to get rid of rats. Schedule and Inspection with us. We specialize getting rid of rodents such as rats and mice. Removing rodents can be difficult. Our mice exterminators and rat exterminators will identify nesting areas and feeding grounds and will eliminate them fast and efficiently.
Rodents can carry up to thirty-five diseases that humans are susceptible to, which is another reason to eliminate them as soon as possible. The most popular are:
- Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome
- Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome
- Lassa Fever
- Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis (LCM)
- Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever
- Rat-Bite Fever
- South American Arenaviruses (Argentine hemorrhagic fever, Bolivian hemorrhagic fever, Sabiá-associated hemorrhagic fever, Venezuelan hemorrhagic fever)
Cleaning up after a rodent infestation also requires a great deal of caution and a trained Rodent Exterminator. This is necessary because of the possibility of fleas or mosquitoes, which may transmit their own diseases to you, your children and pets. There is also risk involved if you inadvertently stir up the dust of their nests; it can be hazardous to breathe in the bacteria contained within.
Rodents can also do physical damage your home or business. They easily chew through some types of siding and other building materials. They are also known to chew on electrical lines, thereby increasing the possibility of fire. They damage other materials as well, creating holes and gnawing on numerous objects, especially food or food containers. Our Mice Exterminators and Rat Exterminators are NYS Trained and Certified.
