There are two common types of rats in the southeastern United States, the roof rat (Rattus rattus), and the norway rat, (Rattus norvegicus). Both species are extremely dangerous to have in or around your home. The prolific nature of these animals makes it imperative that you call an expert wildlife biologist today.
Rat infestations spread quickly and the damages are severe. Myths that rats stay in “poor areas” or “poorly maintained” homes is not true. Rats will take advantage of any home and can go seemingly unnoticed for quite some time the attic or wall voids.
Rats and mice are another common problem. They usually enter merely for warmth and shelter, but also for food. Once inside, they make a lot of scurrying and scratching noises, they will chew on wires, defecate and urinate everywhere, and often enter the home and raid the pantry. They are nocturnal, and amazingly fast and agile.
