RESIDENTIAL, COMMERCIAL, and INDUSTRIAL Rat Control--
Rodent management, control, and elimination begins with a thorough
inspection of the structure, building, or property needing such
attention. Identifying your rodent "target" is an important step in
deciding what procedure in control must be taken. Our inspection
consists of a meticulous overview of the entire property.
Rats, cunning as they are sneaky, will find their way into your home at
one time or another. Preventive maintenance although very important, is
far from everyone's mind. To many people, the solution is off the shelf
products, poisons, and baits. Unless administered properly, these can
endanger non target pests, and cause more trouble than they
are worth. When dealing with poisons or chemicals let the professionals
handle it for best results. Rats are underestimated by most people; they
are insect disease infested rodents and should be maintained under
control. When left unattended they will turn your home into an insect,
urine, feces, and disease breeding ground. Urine and feces infested
attics can pose a great health threat to you and your family.
Rat proofing a home is the first step in exclusion. To do a proper job
you must go where the rat goes, identify the main and all possible entry
points. This begins with the Inspection. A thorough outside inspection
must be performed to find all exterior entry points. Not all entries are
seen from outside. One must go inside attics or crawl spaces to find the
most important entries. These interior entries are often missed by most
inexperienced technicians and even experienced technicians as well. Once
the rodent has been removed and the area proofed, Decontamination is
highly recommended to insure complete rodent control.
The fact about rats is that they are everywhere and not easy to control
unless you are a professional. Specifications for rats can vary. The
length of an average rat is from 6-18 inches (that's including their
tail). Roof rats tend to be charcoal gray in color as compared to your
sewer rat which is a brownish tan. Their diet consists of eating almost
everything, it's not much of a diet. They consume ½ to 2oz of liquid a
day. These are nocturnal creatures, they eat and drink under the cover
of darkness. They are loud and gnaw at anything they can. Rats have been
known to cause electrical fires in homes by exposing electrical wires in
attics. Rats are the cause of much damage and carriers of parasites and
Your home has become the preferred breeding ground for most rats. They
breed throughout the year. Producing as many as 4 litters a year, each
litter is from 4 to 6 pups. Insulation in your attic makes perfect
nesting quarters for rats. Urine and feces compiled in attics can pose
serious health risks.
Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS): Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) is a
deadly disease transmitted by infected rodents through urine, droppings,
Humans can contract the disease when they breathe in aerosolized virus.
HPS was first recognized in 1993 and has since been identified
