Tampa Bay

‘Tis the Time of Year that the Rats are Movin’ in!

Rats! As owner and president of Coby’s Tentless Termite and Pest Control, I have seen my fair share of rats in Tampa Bay. These disease-ridden rodents are troublesome, especially when temperatures start cooling, and they seek the warmth of your home and your delicious edibles upon which to survive.

Take a look around the foundation and central air lines leading into your home. Do you notice any holes or potential entry points for rats? Do you see any blackening of the stucco, stone or bricks? If so, this blackening is indicative of rats entering your residence. Their greasy, little bodies rub against the bricks, stucco or stones and leave noticeable black stains.

Rats are larger than mice and more threatening in terms of what they are capable. We, at Coby’s, can identify danger zones for rodent infestation, properly seal any potential entry points, and prepare traps that are extremely effective to rid your home of these nasty rodents. As we slip into the cooler temperatures of autumn and winter, now’s the time to take advantage of THREE FREE MONTHS of PEST CONTROL or our TERMITE offer of 25% or $250 OFF any FULL TERMITE TREATMENT!

How To Tell If You Have Mice Or Rats In Your Tampa Bay Home

Do you hear the pitter patter of little feet across your ceiling or in your walls? Do you see little, black pellets magically appearing on your kitchen counters? If so, you may have a problem with rats in Tampa Bay, or are they mice?  What are they, and how can you get rid of them!?!

Our professionals at Coby’s Tentless Termite and Pest Control identify the differences and provide resolutions.

Rat Coby's Pest Control

Rat

Rats and mice are both nocturnal rodents and they both seek sources of food. They both swim, jump and climb, and they willl scatter when you suddenly turn on the lights!

Rats have a more coarse fur, where mice are smooth. Rats have longer tails, but mice are far more active using their tails to eat, fight and navigate their surroundings.

Mice prefer rice, cereal and plants, but will eat practically anything. We’ve even seen tiny paw prints in softened butter! Rats are more carnivorous and opt for meat, but they, too, will eat grains, proteins, and almost anything…including mice!

Mice are generally smaller and can enter a home through a crevice as small as ¼ inch. Rats

Mouse Coby's Pest Control

Mouse

have larger heads and thicker bodies, so they just need openings of at about a ½ inch. This could be a space found along the Freon lines from your central air conditioner compressor into your home, as well as breaks in eaves or foundations.

All rodents are threatening in that they are capable of carrying disease, especially rabies. Our experts at Coby’s can identify danger zones for rodent infestation, properly seal any potential entry points, and prepare traps that are extremely effective to rid your home of these nasty rodents.

Eliminate Standing Water in Tampa Bay Right Now!

Coby McConnell, owner and president of Coby’s Tentless Termite and Pest Control, is concerned your child’s sand shovel and pail may have blown around your yard during the torrential wind, rain and storms that accompanied Hurricane Hermine recently, and copious amounts of standing water in Tampa Bay remain within. Even small amounts of standing water are breeding grounds for mosquitoes.

With the threat of the Zika virus already in Pinellas County, it is vital that you protect yourself, your family and your neighbors in the Tampa Bay area. Go in search of any and every area of standing water in your yard, and take appropriate measures to eliminate it. Pour it out, brush it away, or shake it off, no matter what you have to do, get rid of the standing water!

The type of mosquito that carries the Zika virus, Aedes aegypti, produces their larvae in containers that hold water. They reproduce quickly when wet, even in spaces as small as a bottle cap. That is why Coby knows how important it is to reduce and eliminate all areas of standing water in Tampa Bay promptly after showers and storms…and even after landscape irrigation systems complete watering cycles.

If you’ve got a problem with mosquitoes, or any other pest…or simply have a question…call Coby’s Tentless Termite and Pest Control today at 727.462.0400 and ask for Coby.  He’ll be happy to speak with you anytime!
