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 disease.
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.
Hantavirus 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 throughout the
United States. Although
rare, HPS is potentially deadly. Rodent control in and around the
home remains the
primary strategy for preventing hantavirus infection.This is just
one of the many potential

Rat trapping and removal
entire rat proofing is preceded by the trapping of all rats sealed
inside your attic, crawl space or home and removal of them once
oils pheromone scents and not to mention their disease infested
urine and droppings things left behind by rats. These scents and
droppings can attract future rodents. Clean attics will deter future
rats and protect your health.
Rat trapping and removal
Our entire rat proofing is preceded by the trapping of all rats
sealed inside your attic, crawl space or home and removal of them
once caught. Rat trapping isn't simply setting traps down. Positioning
of traps is vital for a success in winning this battle. Being sure
traps are set in the rat's path and in the direction of travel.
Identifying the direction of the path of travel is important and
often only identifiable by a trained technician. When baiting the
snap traps be sure not to contaminate bait with human scent. Doing
so might render the snap trap useless. Rats are cautious when the
scent of humans is near and if contaminated they might not approach
it. When removing dead rats be cautious, wear appropriate intact
rubber or plastic gloves. As it is well documented that rats carry
many infectious diseases: Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS), Maurine
typhus, Rat-bite fever (RBF) Leptospirosis.
Body oils, pheromone scent and not to mention their disease infested
urine and droppings are all things left behind by rats. These scents
and droppings left behind by rats can attract future rodents. Clean
attics will deter future rats and save your health. As you well
know, rats carry many infectious diseases. Further more, they urinate
and leave droppings that are prone to develop fungus aerosolized
viruses. The unsanitary conditions that rats leave may pose a threat
to you and your family's health. Special care must be taken when
dealing with rat urine and feces. Gloves, respirators, and biohazard
suits must be worn when handling rat waste to prevent contamination.
All contaminated insulation and feces must be removed from attics.
Vacuuming of an attic must be done with a .03 micron Hepa filter
vacuum. Then the attic can be sanitized and deodorized.
In our rat proofing we find and seal off all access point that rats
might have. Whether it be a chewed hole or a building imperfection.
We will find it and repair it. Many companies claim they are the
best at finding and solving these problems. We know better, after
all we end up fixing many mistakes made by others. Understanding
that rats are sneaky and great contortionist will help you find
their entry points. Our years of experience have taught us never
to underestimate the cunningness of the rat. Standard rules say
a rat fits into a quarter size hole or ½ inch hole. Experience
has told us rats don't care what size the hole is, after all they
can always make it bigger. Standard rules are for standard companies.
We are not your standard company, we go above and beyond to solve
