How Rat Control Works

Careful inspection of your home is the first step to rat controlEastside Exterminators rat control ensures that your home is cleared of infestations by managing the problem from start to finish. That’s the core of our 4-step process, which you can read more about below.

  1. Rodent Inspection – The first thing that must happen after you call for us to remove rats from your home is an inspection. One of our licensed pest management professionals will come to your house and perform a top-to-bottom search of the premises. The inspector will provide you with a photo report of entry points the rats are using, and also set traps.
  2. Rodent Exclusion – A specialized exclusion technician will return several days after the initial inspection, giving the rats time to trigger the traps. The technician will then remove the rats from your property, and the traps will be reset as necessary. Most importantly, the technician will complete repairs to documented entry points, so rats will be unable to get back in.
  3. Rodent Protection – Following the work to get rid of the infestation, another inspection is performed for any remaining rats and entry points. We also set up a system of traps that suits your home’s layout when everything is clear.
  4. Rodent Cleanup – When all the work to clear the infestation and keep rats out has been completed, we get started cleaning up. Rats can do a lot of damage to attics and leave a huge mess on insulation. Our insulation experts will therefore decontaminate, deodorize, repair and replace your insulation depending on the exact requirement.

Rat Control: One Solution to Many Problems

Rat Control professionals can protect your home and keep you safeThe reason rat control is critical to you as a homeowner is that rats can wreak havoc inside your home. Proper rat control can prevent costly and dangerous damage. The kind of damage rats can do includes:

  • Shredding insulation, or contaminating it with waste.
  • Eating through electrical wiring, which can elevate fire risk.
  • Chewing into plumbing, causing water damage.
  • Gnawing holes through wood, compromising structural integrity.

Additionally, rat bites, as well as their urine and feces, can carry diseases harmful to both humans and pets. You can’t leave an infestation in place once you’ve found out about it. Rats breed very quickly, so a small problem can become a huge nightmare if left unattended!
