Common Rats in the Coachella Valley

Roof rats and Norway rats are common in the Coachella Valley, and pose a health risk to residents through the diseases they carry. Rats not only carry parasites, fleas, and other pests, but they carry diseases like toxoplasmosis, typhus, trichinosis, salmonellosis, and leptospirosis. They can easily contaminate food and water as well.


Roof rats are grey or black in color, up to 16 inches in length, and have a tail that’s longer than its body. Because they are good climbers, they often nest in trees and attics. They are most active at night, and are omnivores. Norway rats are about 8 inches in length, have shaggy fur, and a short tail. They can also be called brown rats or sewer rats. They’re often found lower down than roof rats. Like roof rats, Norway rats are omnivores most active at night.


Though the natural lifespan of a rat isn’t very long, they have short gestation periods and large litter sizes – up to 12 pups per month. This means that a rat population can grow to a massive size if left unchecked.


Rats are very adaptable, able to climb up walls and drain pipes in search of food, water, and shelter. They will also eat most things people eat, meaning that once they’ve found a reliable source of food and shelter in you’re home, they’re unlikely to leave on their own. Like all rodents, rats are formidable chewers, going through wood, insulation, electrical wires, cloth, and paper for their nests. This chewing can be destructive to your home and property, and even a fire hazard.


As if all the above wasn’t enough, the presence of rats in a restaurant, hotel, hospital, governmental or commercial environment is not only a serious liability and health risk, but it can do major damage to your reputation as well.
