FINDING & DESTROYING RATS
We always say, “when you see one rat, there are probably many more nearby!” Rats are natural breeders beginning when they are only 5-7 weeks old. These disgusting rodents thrive in silage piles, feedlots, and in granaries. Typically, we see rats bothering folks who are on agricultural properties throughout our service areas (the areas in and around Aberdeen, Huron, Mitchell, Mobridge, SD; and South Dakota & Sheridan, WY).
Rats are white, black, brown, or gray and typically live for two or three years. While they appear similar to mice, they are about two-three times larger. Also, rats have blunter noses than mice and their tails are hairless and scaly, as opposed to furry.
Because rats like to rummage throughout your house for food, they can leave disgusting grease stains wherever they go. They also love eating your food and scurrying out of their dark hiding spots when you least expect them.
We use bait to treat rats. Since rats are skeptical little guys, they will typically wait around two weeks before eating any bait.
A large rat infestation will take a few months to get under control, but we promise it’ll be worth the patience when you can enjoy a rat-free environment! We offer a Premium rodent and insect package that is the “Crème de la Crème.” This package GUARANTEES control of your rodent and insect problems throughout the year.
After treatment, you can help keep rats away from your home by:
- Regularly cleaning under kitchen appliances (food can easily collect under these)
- Eliminating outdoor hiding spaces by:
- Removing dead brush
- Elevating wood piles
- Cleaning up unused food or drinks
- Sealing any pet food you leave out overnight
- Repairing cracks in your foundation, pipes, or vents that lead outside
- Fixing gaps in your roof (this especially important if you have a tile roof)
- Sealing cracks around doors and windows
- Keeping decorations in a tightly sealed container – rats love living in boxes that you carry in and out of your house!
Rats love to live in the dark, so even if you haven’t seen them recently, you may have heard them in your home. If you suspect your house may have been invaded by rats, call one of our expert technicians today.
