This is a picture of a rat in a trap that I caught on my deck.
The trap was in a bait station. This is a Roof Rat. Notice the tail is longer than the body of the rat. The long tail allows it to have good balance while climbing in high places. The Roof rat originated in the jungles of China. Continue reading →
Rats and mice are common pests during the fall and winter time, but they tend to be active all year long. They just tend to become more visible during the winter because they tend to be inside. Our policy is to encourage exclusion.
Cedar boughs touching the roof are a carpenter ant problem. The carpenter ants can move directly from the building to the boughs. Cedar provides a tremendous food source for the ant. The ants will eat any exudate or plant juices from this tree. If there are aphids the ants will feed directly from the aphid. They then carry this food down to the larva they are feeding. A Cedar tree is often where a carpenter ant Queen’s nest will be found. The nest will be at ground level so that it gets nearly 100% humidity.
