Common signs of a rat infestation
Rats are dangerous and icky creatures - there is no second opinion on that matter. Not only can they severely damage your property by chewing on anything from wood to cables and even pipes, but they can also carry health-hazardous diseases. Needless to say, if you spot one running around your home or only suspect its presence, you need to call a pest control professional ASAP. With that in mind, here are the most common signs of a rat infestation:
Chewed on items: This is probably one of the biggest giveaways that you probably have rodents and need rat nest removal. Rats are notorious for their abilities to chew on, well, anything.
Smears: Rats tend to leave marks behind when moving around. So if you see suspicious, greasy marks, you may have a rodent infestation on your hands.
Footprints: You might spot prints left from the rat’s tiny feet in dusty areas, like your attic or basement.
Noises: Rats are significantly bigger than mice, which makes them quite noisy when they decide to climb. If you start hearing scratching noises behind your walls, it's time to call a professional to inspect your property for a rodent infestation.
Droppings: Found weird, black olive-like droppings? Yes? “Congratulations” - you most likely have a furry guest in your house that you don’t know about.

The first part of the service is a thorough inspection of the premises.

After the specialist is done, they will proceed with treating your home.The rat control method
The next step of the service is the rat removal treatment itself. The professional will begin by using special steel wool and expanding foam to close off all of the rodents’ entry points to make sure that they don’t have access to your property ever again. Once done with that, they will set bait stations in strategic areas around your property. If the pest controller decides that this is the best course of action, they can also set rat traps instead of bait or as an additional measure.Post-service visits

Frequently asked questions
Q: Can rats actually climb vertical surfaces?
A: Yes - rats are very talented when it comes to climbing. They can climb up vertical surfaces without breaking a sweat. This is how the vermin usually finds its way to your attic, and why many times people don’t find out that they have a rat infestation in their properties.
Q: How long does it take for the rat poison to work?
A: The answer is - it depends. You have to take into account the rat's size and the amount of poison it has eaten. Generally, the entire rat removal treatment takes about two to three weeks to have an effect - this is the usual amount of time needed for the poison to get inside the vermin's body and kill it.
Q: The rats keep entering even with the entry points closed. What should I do?
A: If you continue seeing rodents after the service, we’ll send the pest control technician back to the property to treat it again.
Q: Can you give me any rat removal tips to get rid of the pests naturally?
A: Here are a few things that you can try: Apply a few drops of essential oil, such as pepper or peppermint, near the entry points. Another great trick is to start growing spearmint or daffodils indoors in pots to keep the rats at bay. With all of this being said, the best way to have a rat-free property is to block their entrances and other big cavities.
