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
Is It Common For Rats To Die During The Winter?
Nature gave rodents characteristics to survive different times of the year. A very useful feature in rats when winter is coming is being more aggressive to make sure they obtain greater amounts of food.
These animals will eat a portion of their food but will save the other part in their burrows. Among the most common provisions are pet food, dead animals, paper, plastic, fabric, and seeds.
If Rodents Do Not Find Shelter And Food, They Will Not Survive Winter
Rats have the capacity to generate extra energy through different activities that help them to keep their core temperature. However, eventually, this mechanism is harmful since it can cause inflammation in their muscles and stress for generating that amount of heat.
During summer, these rodents at 4 months old have already had their first litter of pups. Throughout their lives, they can reproduce at least 10 times. When a population is exterminated, this can regenerate in a short period. However, during winter, their reproductive capacities slow down, so if a population is exterminated, it may not be regenerated.
It is important to remember that these rodents easily adapt to any warm place in your home. They can invade the majority of places that surround you and move in the dark. Although you do not see it, your house might be infested with dozens of rodents.
Each rodent has an extra store of energy during the winter that will increase their need to feed. They will also shelter and organize in colonies with a very specific hierarchy.
With winter arrival, you must be watchful. One of the best options is to find a specialist to guide you with the most effective ways to avoid unwanted guests.
