Rat Removal and Exclusion Services
A suspected rodent infestation is not something to ignore. Rat removal and exclusion becomes more difficult (and more expensive) the longer you wait to initiate it. Luckily, Pest Pros specializes in rat control services — not just removing the rats from your property, but taking measures to prevent them from ever coming back.
Rats are generally looking for a place that is safe and warm from outdoor elements, and offers consistent food nearby. Though almost completely blind, rats are somewhat-intelligent animals that will find any and all ways to infiltrate your property through tiny holes, loose plumbing connections, and gaps in your roofing.
Some of the common signs that you have rats in your home or business include:
If you have rats, you probably want them removed and fast. We remove the animals through bait stations and trapping. Bait stations are placed on the exterior of your property with a chemical that acts as a lethal blood thinner for rats.
Often used in combination with bait stations, we also offer a variety of rat traps. A snap trap is a traditional, but ever-effective method of trapping rats inside a home or business. An alternative is a hydro-trip, which uses compressed air and can kill multiple rats at once.
Exclusion, or techniques for keeping pests out once they’ve been initially removed, is a critical part of the process. Rat exclusion often involves filling any existing burrow holes with cement, a galvanized screen and mesh, or a steel wool product called an excluder. In addition to burrow holes, we look for and seal other access points such as ripped screens and broken or missing doors.
