Gwinnett County, Lawrenceville Rat Control Situation:
Hi David, Wow, you have a wonderful website, chock full of helpful information. I do think I need to schedule an appt. for an estimate on cleanup..in the crawl space, under my bathroom floor. There is a terrible odor in my 7 X 3 ft one and only bathroom in the Lawrenceville GA area. (I am experienced....had rat nest in p trap of bathtub 5 yrs. ago). Omg Pest Control set traps and sealed the 2 spots we could find that seem most suspect to rat entry , and there were droppings, urine under the bathroom area. I will wait til we catch something before I have your guys come. Of most concern, is wanting someone to look carefully into that bathtub p-trap area with a snake flashlight (Omega will try to come up with one by monday)....I want to know where the urine saturation is... I have respiratory reaction (coughing, using albuterol inhaler, Kaiser pulmonologist concerned) I want to know if you can cleanse the areas well for cleanup, disinfect, etc so that the rat phernomes, etc don't linger. Most of all, I want my bathroom back! It is horrible!! Please let me know if you schedule online, and a timeframe, more info on cleanup! thanks so much, mary
Lawrenceville Rat Control Tip of The Week
Do Rats Consume Or Like Cheese?
Being an omnivorous animal, rats tend to feed on anything their claws can grab. This feeding habit with no restrictions allows them to feed on vegetables, fruits, meats, grains, and even dairy products. There's however a myth that rats prefer cheese to any other type of food. As a result of this, many people consider cheese as a rat's favorite and will prefer using them as baits whenever they want to trap rats.
This might seem like a very good idea, but the fact is there is nothing in particular that clearly states that rats prefer cheese to other food. Although they do eat it when they have access to it, that doesn't make it the food they like
To help you understand this better and know whether or not rats consume and like cheese we will be taking you through the diet of a rat. With this, we will be able to provide an answer to the question above.
Rats are voracious eaters; all they care about is to fill up their stomach with food. They only become choosy when there is an abundant source of food and several options to choose from. In situations like this, rats will prefer to eat other foods like meat, grains, and fruits instead of eating cheese.
Apart from all that has already been mentioned above, the nutritional value of cheese is low compared to what rats need daily. This simply means that if you keep a rat as a pet, offering it a meal plan that is mainly comprised of cheese is a bad idea.
