What are some signs you have roof rats?

If your yard is full of dropped citrus fruit, it could play a role in attracting roof rats to your property.

Half-Eaten Citrus

When your citrus trees drop fruit, check the fruit after a few days. If you’re noticing half-eaten fruit, it could be the work of rats. Call us for a free rat inspection here in the Valley.

Roof rats are a major problem in Scottsdale, AZ, as they've invaded multiple neighborhoods in the East Valley.

Visual Sightings

Roof rats travel to your home to other locations. In particular, if you have fruit and / or nut trees, they’ll travel to your yard to eat fallen fruit. See a rat? Don’t assume it’s the only one.

If your pets are behaving strangely or barking at the roof suddenly, you might need to call us for a rodent inspection.

Odd Pet Behavior

Roof rats make noises and smells that may be hard for humans to detect, but your cat or dog can sense them. If you find your pets barking or meowing at the ceiling, it warrants an inspection.

If you're noticing evidence of a rodent nest—like the one pictured—call us for rodent control here in Phoenix, AZ.

Rodent Droppings

Rat droppings can be very toxic. If you see rat droppings outside or in your home, give us a call. We’ll dispose of the droppings safely and inspect around your home for the rats that left them.

    #1. We eliminate the current infestation.

    We’ll start by helping you get rid of the current rats on your property.

    For this, we recommend using baited traps, not poison bought at the store. Unless applied by a pest professional who knows what they’re doing, poison is not only a danger to your pets, but it can often lead to trouble: on a larger rat, poison might have a delayed effect that allows the rat to return to its nest, where it dies. You then have to deal with removing a dead, rotting rat from a relatively inaccessible place.

    Our traps get rid of the rats without the mess. Call us to learn more about our approach to rodent control.

    #2. We prevent rats from returning.

    Once the current rats are safely dealt with, KY-KO Pest Prevention will advise you on how to best prevent a re-infestation. This starts with eliminating the two things the rats want: shelter and food.

    To eliminate shelter, safely blocking access to weep holes and other points of your attic is a must. Roof rats can also live in bushes, so keeping your landscaping trimmed down helps.

    Getting rid of food is even easier: you’ll need to pick up dropped fruit and keep your yard clear of any trash they can use as food. Keep trash cans sealed with a lid and pick up pet food after your pet is done eating.
