Horry County, Myrtle Beach Rat Control Situation:
Hi i live in a building in 4th floor, these days have been raining a lot and I saw a rat walking on my window, I was so afraid that it get into my home. These annoyed rats only way to get in my home is the window, I can't seal it! I will suffocate, can u please advise me how can I keep them away. Or is it because outside is raining a lot so it want to come in my home. And do they make cans of that stuff that you fog with? Do I need to get a fog machine? I'm not even sure what a fog machine is. Something that you would use at a party to make fog?
I found your page about rats traped in the wall. for exactly a week now we have a rat (I assume cause it is loud) or mouse trapped in the bedroom wall. It is always up at night scratching the wall inside the same wall. We currently rent our house and they sent pest control. All they did is set up traps around the house and in the attic. They said that there are tunnels going through that wall but it is really hard to see or get to it ?! I asked them if they can throw poison down those tunnels but i dont think they did. They said that they will not cut a whole in the wall especially because it is not a drywall (it is the house wall) and that it has to die like that. I am so terrified and cant sleep here anymore. I am afraid of them chewing through the wall while im asleep. What do you suggest I should do? How long does it take for them to die or chew through the wall? HELP!
Hello David, My name is Melissa and I manage a 34 unit elderly complex in Myrtle Beach SC. My problem is mice, maybe even something bigger? My units are in 4 buildings with each unit back to back, 1st building has 6 units, 2nd 8, 3rd 12 and 4th 8. My problem is they are in between the walls of the units, my tenants can hear them scratching at night, I do not want to put poison out for fear of the smell that would surely follow that plan. So, my question is what can I do? Some of my tenants have actually caught some mice in traps in the apartments. 6 total. Any advice would greatly be appreciated.
Myrtle Beach Rat Control Tip of The Week
Can Rats Chew Through The Ceiling?
Rats Are Adept At Climbing:
Rats can fit through surprisingly small spaces and they are extremely adept climbers, it may not take long for a rat to make its way up to the ceiling and then to continue burrowing through the ceiling in an effort to make a nest.
Rats Have Powerful Teeth:
Rats have the ability to chew through almost anything. Certain varieties of brown rats are able to bite through cinderblocks and light concrete. Rather than facing rats that could potentially wreck your ceiling, it's wise to stop them before they have a chance to cause structural damage.
Rats Often Spend Time In Attics:
Rats like to spend time in attics because it can often give them quick access to the outside world. Chewing through the ceiling is a likely consideration because rats are likely to be spending time at the top of your home. Rats like to hide out in attics where they may not be disturbed and this will regularly lead to the chance that a rat could chew through your ceiling quite quickly.
Rats Make Short Work Of Items Like Drywall:
Because the majority of ceilings are made out of drywall and plaster, a rat can chew through these areas quite quickly. You could have a rat making its way through your ceiling tiles within just a matter of minutes and this can be potentially dangerous for the structural integrity of your home.
Rats Want To Be Where It's Warm:
It's likely that a rat will always be directed towards the ceiling as they want to be in an area where it's warm to raise their young. Because rats can breed so quickly and because they are likely to need access to a warm roof spot, you may find rats naturally gnawing through your ceiling.
