I know this is the Year of the Dragon, but you’d think it was the Year of the Rat! Our rat calls are up nearly 30% over last winter! This is good for us, but not so good for homeowners on the front line of the war on rats.
Being do-it-yourselfers, we understand that folks want to try to bait and trap rats out of their homes first, before calling a professional. But many times they fail. Why? Well, let’s review a few of the most common mistakes homeowners make when they try to do it themselves first.
3 Costly Rat Mistakes
- Mistake #1: Placing poison in the attic and sub area. We don’t recommend placing poison within the structure, as rats may die inside in your attic, sub area and even within your walls. The smell of a decomposing rat is not pleasant, and retrieving and removing it can end up being more costly than calling a professional in the first place.
- Mistake #2: Not understanding the importance of a sealed up house. You can trap and bait all you want. But if you haven’t sealed up your home to exclude rats, insects and other critters, they’re going to keep coming back. The wet and cold flush them into warm houses in the winter -isn’t that where you want to be? Seal up your homes. If you can’t get to it, pay someone to do it. It will save you money in the long run, guaranteed.
- Mistake #3: Underestimating the intelligence of a rat. Rats are pretty smart. You need to know how to bait your traps and where to set them. Older rats will figure you out, so do your research. Place traps in their “runs” and be consistent. You can place 20 traps out, but if you don’t do it right, those traps are a waste of your money.
If you are seeing several droppings a day inside your home and you aren’t having luck trapping the rats yourself, call a professional. Rat droppings you can see. Rat urine you can’t. But there will be a lot more urine than droppings! (You can see it with a black light.) Rodent excrement is a health hazard, so don’t mess around. If you need help, call us today. We’ll give those rats an eviction notice…in a scurry. Oops! I mean in a hurry!
Do you have unwanted house guests?
No, we can’t help with the human house guest who won’t leave, but we can help you with the wild kind. Bugs Northwest is certified by the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife and specializes in these wildlife control solutions: trapping and relocation, exclusion, dead animal removal and odor control.
At Bugs Northwest, we love wildlife. But let’s face it, when wildlife is where it isn’t supposed to be, they’re pests. Wildlife can do serious damage to your home and landscaping. They also carry disease which may endanger your pets and family; and larger mammals prey on pets and livestock.
Our trained wildlife control specialists are dedicated to solving your problems in and around your home or property. Day or night, weekends or holidays, we’ll be there to set up and remove those unwanted guests. We use safe live traps for removal, protecting small pets from harm if they accidentally enter a trap.
Many wildlife issues may be solved by exclusion –the practice of sealing up your home so nothing can infiltrate it. Bugs Northwest searches out all the gaps and cracks in your home and seals them up, keeping that wildlife at bay.
Have an odor you can’t pinpoint? Bugs Northwest will inspect your home to locate the cause, remove it and decontaminate the area.
