Treat Your House In The Safest Manner While Ridding Your Home Of Unwanted Rodents

Rat Control

Wild rats are no doubt the vertebrate group most costly to man in terms of economic damage and public health problems.  Unfortunately, the rat is hardy and prolific.  They thrive in a wide range of climactic conditions in a great variety of habitats.  They adapt well to most man made environments and, in fact, is intimately associated with many of man’s activities and enterprises.

Rats see poorly, relying more on smell, taste, touch, and hearing.  The rats’ physical capabilities, though, are phenomenal and it would be wise to assume that rats can:

  • Gain entrance through any opening that is larger than 1/2″ square.
  • Climb both horizontal and vertical wires.
  • Climb the inside of vertical pipes that are 1 1/2 to 4 inches in diameter.
  • Climb the outside of vertical pipes and conduits up to 3 inches in diameter.
  • Crawl horizontally on any type of pipe or conduit.
  • Jump vertically as much as 36 inches from a flat surface.
  • Jump horizontally 48 inches on a flat surface.
  • Jump horizontally at least 8 feet from an elevation of 15 feet.
  • Drop 50 feet without being killed or seriously injured.
  • Burrow vertically in earth to a depth of 4 feet.
  • Climb brick or other rough exterior walls which offer footholds, to gain access to upper stories of structures.
  • Climb vines, shrubs, and trees, or travel along telephone or power lines to gain access to upper stories of buildings.
  • Reach as much as 13 inches along smooth vertical walls.
  • Swim as far as 1/2 mile in open water, dive through water plumbing traps, and travel in sewer lines even against substantial water currents.
  • Gnaw through a wide variety of materials including lead sheeting, sun dried adobe brick, cinder block, and aluminum sheeting.

If you have a rat or mouse problem, you should call your local Twin Cities pest control professionals.
