Rats can be a major pest if they get into your property. Crafty and relentless, rats will exploit any gap even though you may have already taken precautionary measures against them. Not only are rats capable of chewing electrical cables - which could cause fires - but they can transmit disease too. Rats can contaminate food via urine and droppings. Besides, rats are pretty frightening to come across in your home or business.
If you have noticed signs of rats, we recommend you seek help from rat management experts for a true solution to the issue. A rat professional can locate the places where rats are based and keep them from entering your property again. These are services that Western Exterminator provides and we are equipped to combat your rat problems.
Conducting an inspection is a key first step toward controlling rats. The inspection includes estimating how big the infestation might be and where rats might be entering. Norway rats like nesting in soil but can also nest in voids in structures. Roof rats build nests in places such as grass and wall voids. Rats can also take refuge in piles of junk as well.
We look at rat droppings as a sign of rats. Rat droppings are typically ½ inch to ¾ inch long and generally bigger than the droppings of mice (which are about ¼ inch long). Rats can also leave dark rub marks on surfaces.
Rodents can make openings larger in order to enter. They nibble an opening’s edges in order to make the gap bigger. The incisors of rats are very hard and may even gnaw through metal. Rats are able to get through extremely small gaps - a sobering fact.
Here at Western Exterminator, we have thorough expertise in rat control. In dealing with the rats at your property, we make sure to obey applicable laws and regulations:
Remember to let us know whenever you see a rat and do not disturb traps, bait stations, or other control devices we have put in place. Additionally, rats need to drink about ½ ounce to 1 ounce of water each day. Getting rid of sources of water is a good idea.
It can be annoying and quite scary to hear rats in the walls of your property. Rats can nest in walls and so it’s important to take care of infestations before they become more severe. Exclusion and trapping are good solutions for rats in the walls and Western Exterminator can help you address the issues so these rodents are removed. If you think your walls contain rats, reach out to us today.
Roof rats are typically brown mixed with black, and they like nesting in higher places. Make sure you trim your trees and do not let shrubs touch your home or business, because this could allow roof rats to invade. If roof rats have turned into a major issue, let us know, and we will come out to manage the problem.
Western Exterminator specialists are well-prepared to identify the places where rats are hiding and will use the ideal rat control strategy to eliminate them. We have a good deal of experience with getting rid of rats and will take the appropriate measures to ensure they no longer bother you.
