The Rats are Back! Now What?

December 3rd, 2021

DIY fixes may work in the short term, but chances are without professional rat removal services, the rats will, unfortunately, be back soon.

One of the most important steps in keeping rats out for good is by taking preventative measures. Let’s look at a few of those measures and how they can send the rats packing for good!

Minimize Entry Points

Even if you are not sure if the rats are back, try sealing possible entry points. Rats can get into your home through the vents, gaps around your windows, and most commonly through the roof (hence the nickname roof rats).

Once you have found a reliable rat removal company they will identify and professionally seal the entry points to keep them out for good.

Get A Free Inspection

You’ve seen the droppings, heard the pitter-patter in the attic and spotted the tiny little footprints, so now what? The next step is to schedule a free inspection. When you contact Alford Wildlife, a licensed wildlife removal specialist will come to your home and assess your property.

They’ll look for signs of rats to see how they are entering, where they’re living in your home and if they have caused any damage to your insulation or your walls.

Make A Plan

After you’ve worked with a rat removal professional to assess the problem, it’s time to hatch a plan! At Alford Wildlife and Pest Management, we are committed to keeping you in the loop every step of the way. We’ll work with you to come up with a plan to close off all points of entry and remove all the rats in your home.

Clean-Up Follow-Up

It’s not only important that the rats don’t come back but also that the havoc they wreaked doesn’t continue to affect your home. Decontamination of your home is crucial to avoid infectious disease and to get rid of the foul smell usually created by rats’ feces and urine.

At Alford Wildlife and Pest Management, we’ll decontaminate your home with industrial-grade disinfectant and remove rats that have died in and around your property. We also repair any damage caused to the insulations of your home.
