Identifying Rats and Rat Infestations

We understand the importance of having a rat-free environment. Rats can cause health risks and property damage. To effectively control and prevent rat infestations, it's important that you can identify the signs and behaviors of these pests. One sign of rat activity is finding rat droppings, which are small, pellet-like, and usually near their nests or travel routes. Holes or bite marks on food packages or structural materials can also indicate the presence of rats. A musty odor within your premises may be a sign of rat infestation, as rats have scent glands that release a distinct smell in their nests and urine. Shredded materials like paper or fabric are often used by rats for building their nests. It's important that you understand there are different types of rats, such as the common Norway rat, roof rat, and wharf rat, each with their own preferences in habitat and food sources. It's highly recommended that you seek help from a professional pest control company like Atlus Pest Solutions for the control of any rodent activity. 

Our Effective Rat Control Solutions

At Atlus Pest Solutions, we offer effective rat control solutions. We understand the challenges and risks associated with rat infestations. Our goal is to help you eliminate these pests from your property. We have established ourselves as a trusted provider in the pest control industry. Prevention and elimination of food sources are key in rat control. Rats are opportunistic feeders and can survive on a variety of food. By removing these food sources and ensuring proper storage, we can greatly reduce the attractiveness of your property to rats. Eliminating rat habitats is also important. Rats seek out warm and safe areas to nest and breed. By rodent-proofing structures and sealing entry points, we can deny rats access to your property. Traps and poison baits are effective tools in rat control. Our professionals are trained in the proper placement and use of rat traps. However, caution must be exercised when using poison bait. Our pest control professionals can guide you through the process to ensure safety and effectiveness.

Rat Infestations Can Put Your Home or Business at Risk

At Atlus Pest Solutions, we understand the importance of rat control. Rat infestations can pose health risks and cause property damage. It is crucial to take immediate action to prevent further infestations and protect your home or business. Rats carry diseases like leptospirosis, tularemia, and salmonella, which can be transmitted to humans through contact with droppings, urine, or bites. These diseases can range from mild to severe. Rat infestations can also cause damage to your property by gnawing through materials like wood, plastic, and electrical wiring. This can lead to structural damage, fires, and expensive repairs. Taking swift action can prevent further damage and save you money. Implementing preventative measures such as sealing cracks, storing food properly, and removing potential nesting sites is essential. 

Rat Control Tips - Post Removal

Rat control requires ongoing efforts to rat-proof your home and eliminate its food sources and habitats. Identifying and eliminating their food sources is crucial. Store food in secure containers and clean up spills promptly. Seal garbage cans tightly and remove accessible food packages or scraps. Eliminating potential rat habitats is equally important. Keep areas clean and organized. Seal cracks and holes in walls, floors, and pipes. Trapping or using poison bait may be necessary in some cases. Use snap traps with peanut butter safely and place them in appropriate locations. If using poison bait, place it in tamper-resistant bait stations. At Atlus Pest Solutions, we can help you with rat control beyond removal. Contact us for comprehensive rat control services.
