Raleigh pest control

We North Carolina's top experts in rodent control. We are not a typical Raleigh rat removal or pest control company. We don't treat rats or mice like insects, because they are not - they are mammals! You can't just use poison to get rid of them, like you can with insects. Unlike most Raleigh pest control, we focus on complete and permanent solutions. We don't just use poison every month. We solve your rodent problem forever, by following these steps:

  • Inspect the entire house, ground to roof, and the attic
  • Seal shut all entry areas, no matter how small, with steel
  • Set a dozen or more rat or mouse traps in the house and attic
  • Remove all rodents as they are caught and monitor for activity
  • Once there is no more activity and no more caught, we're done
  • When necessary, we clean rodent droppings, replace insulation, and repair chewed electric wires

Raleigh Rodent Removal Tip:

What is the fastest way to get rid of rats?
Rats are not the kind of pests you want on your property for longer than necessary. It is never necessary to have the critters on your property. They are attracted to shelter, food sources, and clutter. During the colder periods, they are typically more inspired to infest homes and other properties because of the available warmth. If a property is particularly cluttered, it will be more appealing to the critters.

Whenever you suspect or confirm a rat infestation, you should strive to get rid of them as soon as possible. How should you go about removing the critters? This article focuses on how to get rid of the critters as swiftly as possible. We consider the different means of getting rid of the critter and their level of effectiveness. 

Traps are effective tools for getting rid of critters such as rats. The traps are appropriately designed to remove the critters and can be lethal or non-lethal. The non-lethal traps are aimed at catching the critters and relocating them. For non-lethal traps to be highly effective, they have to be baited with materials that attract the critters. An example is peanut butter. They also have to be strategically positioned. 

Lethal traps are aimed at killing the critters and then removing the carcasses. These traps are designed for minimal torture. Traps like snap traps kill rats by applying appropriate pressure that causes death with little to no pain. Snap traps also have to be strategically positioned and baited to be effective. 

Rat removal experts consider traps to be one of the best options for getting rid of critters. It is noteworthy that the type of traps used determines the effectiveness. The humaneness of the trap should also be considered before applying it. For example, even though glue traps are lethal traps, they are inhumane. With glue traps, the critters are subjected to undue pain and frustration before they eventually die. 

Even with non-lethal traps, humaneness should also be considered. Live traps should be checked regularly to reduce the frustration and pain they will be subjected to. 

rodent trapping Rodenticides or poisons could also be considered traps. However, these lethal traps could be inhumane and cause unnecessary pain and frustration for the critters. They could also be difficult to apply and come with negative unintended consequences. Thus, poisoning may not be an effective measure for getting rid of rats.

Habitat modification
Habitat modification helps to get rid of rats. The state of an environment is a major factor that attracts the critters. This is why habitat modification is important for keeping rats away. Rats will not infest an area that they find unappealing. Unless an area can support rats, they will not infest. 

Processes that make up habitat modification include identifying and sealing entry points and reinforcing susceptible entry points. Habitat modification also includes eliminating clutter indoors and outdoors. 

As a rat removal method, habitat modification is effective, especially when paired with other methods. For an active infestation, habitat modification can be carried out after trapping. The modification could also be generally applied to keep rats away and make a property or area unappealing. 

Repellants help to make an environment unappealing to critters. Effective repellants for rats include eucalyptus oil, black pepper, and peppermint oil. Rats find the smell of eucalyptus oil and peppermint oil offensive and could leave an area with a high concentration of the smell. Black pepper, ammonia, and bay leaf also have odors that rats find offensive. 

Different repellants work according to different measures to get rid of the critters and make an environment unappealing to them. 

Rats are difficult pests to manage. They are best handled with measures that have been proven to be highly effective. Even when DIY measures are applied in getting rid of rats, highly effective measures are the fastest means.
