Roof rats have been thriving since the early 2000s thanks to our climate and the abundance of food. If you live near old-growth citrus trees, irrigation canals, or other sources of food and water rodents might find enticing, there’s the chance you could come across these creatures.
Roof rats will:
- Forage for food in elevated areas such as roofs and treetops.
- Use utility lines and branches to enter your home.
- Kill trees by eating the bark off them.
- Smudge oil and dirt onto your home, leaving dark smudges.
- If you see smudges up high on your home, call the professionals at Termio today—you may have an unwelcome visitor!
Also known as Woodrats, pack rats are common in Phoenix and the surrounding area. Relatively large, these nocturnal creatures are attracted to bright and shiny objects.
