Description of Kingwood Rats

Roof rats are a particular species of rats that were brought over to North America, most likely, by the sailors and traders that made their way over hundreds of years ago from Europe. They reach a size of 7 to 8 inches with their tails adding another 8 to 10 inches. They are dark in color with coarse brown or black fur. As their name suggests, they prefer areas that are high up like rooftops, attics, trees, and any other elevated area that they can turn into their home. They are a species that live in colonies, so you can be sure that where there is one, there are many.

Entry Into Homes

They can thrive in areas where people live because of the availability of food that they have at their disposal. They enjoy feeding on grains, garbage, seeds, whatever is growing in the garden, and fruits. They utilize things like trees and utility lines to gain access to the roof and attic of your home and other structures so that they can find a way inside. They are looking to get inside to either get out of the cold or to find a place to birth and raise their young.

Rat Damages and Dangers

They are a powerful animal for their size and have the ability to chew and scratch their way through most materials. They can destroy wood, metal, ductwork, brick, wires, and anything they feel they need to get through. Their feces and urine can also cause damage to these types of materials as well. Aside from the physical damage they can cause, they also pose a health threat for people as well. It has been long established that they were the cause of one of the most historic disease outbreaks in history, the bubonic plague. They carry a wide range of parasites and diseases like the plague, typhus, fleas, ticks, salmonellosis, and jaundice. Their presence can cause illness and even death in severe cases. When you combine the physical damage they do with the health risks they can pose, they are a pest that needs to be taken care of immediately once their presence is realized.
