One of the most treasured moments for homeowners is when they get to sit around after all the kids are in bed and just rest, read a book, and possibly watch some Netflix. One of the most stressful moments for a homeowner is when they are trying to enjoy those post days relaxation and the patter patter of a strange creature in the attic!
The good news. Its not mice. The bad news . . it’s a Rat!
Rats are pernicious pests. They are larger and more aggressive than mice although they may not reproduce as fast, if left alone, they will bring along a large family of cousins and children. They eat everything and anything creating significant damage to the home and property and they also are known to carry disease and to possibly cause harm to children. Because they are so much larger than mice, they require much more sophisticated traps and poisons to exterminate them but they also require much more time and attention to detail in order to fully trick.
In AZ there are many different species of rats, but the ones that seem to appear the most often are roof rats. They love to hide in the vast maze of storage in the attic and they are also very fast.
Our technicians are super specialized in knowing what traps, what lures, what places are needed or will bring in the rats. They are so well trained they are able to almost predict that patterns and pathways of the critters. We know that a single rat, let alone a large gathering of rats can cause great distress that is why we treat their removal with the utmost urgency to bring peace and tranquility back into your home!
