Pulaski County, Little Rock Rat Control Situation:
David - Trying to rid the rats from house and attic. Caught 6 so far and I think I may be getting to the end. Ive blocked everything I could see on roof but can they scale a stucco chimney and get in that way even know there is a screen there? Ive been putting a piece of peanut on the victor traps is that the best bait? If I dont catch one in a while when is it safe to say we got em all ?Thanx Stephen
My response: Yup, peanut butter is good bait, you know they're gone when the noises stop.
Hi, I have a shop that I am going to try to seal up the small entrances the rats are using. My question is can I use plastic gloves only to pick up tools etc that the droppings are on, how do I clean the tools and what are the dangers of the droppings to me? Thank you sir.
Latex gloves are fine. Not much danger, just rinse off the tools with water, and wash your hands afterward.
Hi David I was looking on your website and I hired a professional to take care of my roof rat problem in Little Rock AR, and I was just reading on some of the things that you mentioned about getting rid of roof rats. I have watched and talked to the professional that inspected my house however, after he sealed, set the traps and inspected the whole house we haven't caught any rats but one prior to it being sealed.

Little Rock Rat Control Tip of The Week
City Subways And The Presence Of Rats
Rats, like pigeons, badgers, and foxes thrive in urban environments, even moving to these places. Cities are full of garbage dumps, abandoned lands, and sewers that can provide a cozy burrow for rats to live in and raise their families. Human beings have provided the perfect conditions for the well-being of this species.
Sewers And Rats
Sewers can provide everything needed for an exponential multiplication of rodents. The problem is that the more rats there are, the more they need food, so to get it they will be severely aggressive towards each other. This aggressiveness and the search for new food sources can cause serious damage to the city.
Rats Are The Real Infection
These rodents are known for carrying bacteria that cause infectious diseases leading humans to death. Something similar occurs with rats when they spread through sewers, subways, garbage dumps, and train tracks.
Rats survive thanks to the mountains of garbage in the city and play a vital role in reducing this waste. However, wiring or holes and infrastructure problems can be just some of the catastrophic consequences for the city's subway system.
Humans love junk food and in big cities, high-calorie garbage has given the rats that eat it the energy they need to grow exorbitantly even creating resistance to some rat poisons.
The well-being of citizens begins with professional pest control combined with a mind-set of not throwing garbage into the environment. Briefly, if there is neither food nor garbage, there are no rats. The fewer rats there are in places like the subway, the fewer rats will be able to reach homes. The more we take care of the city, the fewer health problems or economic damage there will be.
