Rattus rattus, or black rat, is an old species of rat. The old-world rat is a rat species endemic to Eurasia or Africa. They are not indigenous to the Americas (like new-world rats.) This invasive species is now so abundant that the “dark art,” sometimes known as the black rat, is also known as the “ship rat,” “roof rat,” and “attic rat.” With so many distinct names, it is apparent that the black rat is a major problem in a variety of regions.

Why Are Black Rats Attracted To My Chicago Home?
A black rat has a one-year lifetime. To compensate, they reproduce rapidly in order to assure the survival of their family. Black mice can have up to twelve litters per year, each with six to twelve pups. They are social animals that hunt in groups and protect their pest families. This pest visits our homes because our flower beds are teeming with bugs and their preferred food sources, such as seeds, slugs, and snails. However, black rats are omnivorous and will eat almost any food or trash that is placed in front of them. Rats will defecate in the blooms to protect their young from predators and to offer adequate nutrition. Unfortunately, rats will enter a structure with a quarter-sized opening looking for food and refuge during the winter months, making pest control more important than at any other time of year. Roofing holes are often their first point of entry. Because it is extremely secretive and mostly silent, the black mouse usually goes unnoticed at first. Droppings could be found in your bed, near your bed, or on the headboard of your bed, as these are all places where they can migrate quickly. In case you were wondering, these unwelcome critters are NOT the same as bed bugs!
Rat Extermination vs. Rodent Removal Cost?
Rat removal and rat extermination are often used interchangeably. A wildlife control & removal specialist is the best person to contact if you want to control and remove pests in your home. When live rats are removed, they are relocated to a new site. Do not be fooled, as this approach may still result in the rats’ deaths if they are put in rural supplies with insufficient food and water. A more humane pest management method would be to move the rats outside the house, but not too far away so that they can continue to access their usual food and water sources. For a moderate infestation, the rodent removal pest management approach used by a business specializing in rat and wildlife pest removal costs between $350 and $600.
Extermination of rats is frequently more effective when the bait is used to draw the rodents out, where they are then killed. It is more expensive because of access point sealing, rat traps, and bait, corpse disposal, and cleanup. A moderate infestation will cost between $500 and $750. Pest control specialists accomplish this work.
