Frequently Asked Questions About Rats

How do I know if I have rats?

The first signs of a rat problem include droppings and piles of shaved wood or other materials. If you take a closer look, you may even discover a nest or burrow.

Can I DIY rat removal?

We really don’t recommend it. Unless you have extensive knowledge of the behavior and habits of rats, it’s very difficult to find the source of the rat problem, and to completely eliminate the population.

Do rats pose a health risk to my family?

Besides damaging your home or business, rats pose a significant health threat. They spread disease, contaminate food and the house itself, and can cause extensive damage to your home.

Baiting vs Trapping: What’s the Difference?

Baiting involves using poison (rodenticide) to kill the rats or mice. Trapping uses carefully placed traps around your home to capture the rats, and then eliminate the problem.

The issue with baiting, and the reason why we don’t use this method, is simple: after rats ingest the poison, there’s no way to know where they went. They could have gone outside–but they could have gone into your walls! No one wants a dead rat in their walls. This is why we use traps and other methods to safely rid your home of rodents.

Professional Rodent Control

Here at Hitmen Termite & Pest Control, we prefer to use techniques to get rid of the animals first, and then exclude them from your home. We will use some traps occasionally, but it’s not our main method of rodent control. Because we have over 35 years worth of experience, we know how to successfully rid your home of rats without using hundreds of traps.

Our rodent control program has three important steps:

  1. A thorough inspection to identify the species, where they’re nesting, and what factors are attracting them.
  2. Effectively placing traps in rodent traffic areas to rid the rodents before any structural damage is done.
  3. Exclusion repairs, eliminating all potential rodent entry points.
