Customer Rat Email: Hello ! We own a lot in a Motorcoach RV Resort ... located near Marco Island just south of the intersection of 41 & 951 in East Naples. On our lot is a 10' x 10' coachouse sort of shed small building and under that small building are living several mice. We suspect they have made a nest under there and set up housekeeping on our concrete motorcoach lot under the coachouse shed. What would you suggest please ? So far, they have not seemed to find entry into the inside of the Coachouse, but that I think they will accomplish in time. The coachouse does sit up off the ground on some beams just a bit and entry underneath is easy. Seems to me they need to be eradicated in some chemical manner and then wire screens installed all along the outside perimiter of the coachouse to prevent future entry of rodents or other animal life to set up housekeeping underneath our coachouse. You could send someone out to look at the matter and email me back with your proposed solution please ??? David & Sandy

My Answer: Mice can live in many areas, including mobile homes or RVs. These types of structures can be difficult if the entry points are below the structure. You have to get on your back and crawl underneath, and find out how the animals are getting inside, and seal those areas shut.

There are three kinds of rodents commonly found inside buildings (in the attics, walls, and even inside the living space). They are the Roof Rat (Rattus rattus), which is also called the Black Rat, then there's the Norway Rat (Rattus norvegicus), also known as the Brown Rat, and the House Mouse (Mus musculus). Roof Rats are more common in the south, such as Florida, where I work. The above photo is of a Roof Rat. They are very common inside attics. The Norway Rat is more common in the northern section of the United States. The Norways are more commonly found underground, in subways and sewers and such. The House Mouse is found everywhere, but seems more common in the north. All of these rodents thrive in urban areas and love to live in human buildings and houses. They use human garbage (and pantries) as sources of food. All of these rodents are carriers of several diseases that can infect humans and pets. They contaminate homes and attics. The only way to permanently solve a rat problem is to find out how the rodents are gaining access to the inside of the building, and fix those openings. Then the remaining rats inside have to be trapped and removed. If you want to learn more, please read my How To Get Rid of Rats page.
