Roof rats love citrus

At Bug & Weed Mart, you already know we carry only EPA-approved, industry-leading, professional-grade products for controlling insects, weeds, etc. But we also specialize in rodent control, including mice, pack rats, gophers, Norway rats, and roof rats. Because of the extensive widespread damage they cause, roof rats are the most notorious, especially because of the number of citrus trees we have here. We can show you how to get rid of roof rats.

There are a number of easy ways you can prevent roof rats from taking up residence on your property and getting into your home, though.

How to Get Rid of Roof Rats:

  • Reduce clutter/overgrowth in your landscaping, especially along the walls of yards and against the home
  • Do not allow citrus fruit to remain hanging in trees (or on the ground) when it’s time to harvest
  • Do not leave pet food and water exposed outside
  • Seal any openings/holes along exterior of home (even a quarter-sized hole is too large!)
