The key to good rat prevention is removing easy sources of food, water or shelter. Also, seal up all entry points larger than a quarter. Repair any roof or eaves damage immediately. Trim back trees touching your house. Eliminate easy outside meals like bird feeders, easy access garbage-trash, compost heaps with food waste, open pet food. Eliminate water sources in your yard. Schedule regular rat control inspections (our initial inspection is free) to identify early signs of rodents and rats.

If our trained professionals are able to locate and access the rat burrows, we can use our BurrowRX machine to knock out the infestation quickly. Designated as a rat control device by the EPA, BurrowRX allows direct targeting of rodents within the burrow system. There are no secondary toxicity issues. Unfortunately, not all burrows are accessible or you also have an inside infestation. Once inside your home rat extermination is more difficult. However, our trained team can handle it! We will set-up a custom rat baiting- trapping program and monitor it closely until the rats are eradicated.
