Average Rat Extermination Cost
Exterminate Rats Immediately
Rats are among the largest of the common household pests and if you find that they’ve taken up residence in or around your home, you need to bring in a rat exterminator as quickly as possible. Call Terminix today and within 24 hours or less, we’ll provide you with a solution proposal that’s guaranteed to exterminate rats, eliminating your problem. Rats will enter homes, but because of their size, they’re more likely to be found in surrounding areas such as your garage or a woodpile. Rat extermination often involves baits and traps, methods that can present a real safety concern when children or pets are in the home and area, so it’s not recommended that homeowners tackle these large rodents without professional help.
There’s no getting around the fact that rats are unpleasant creatures, especially when they’re living in your home or on your property. These are not small creatures. Although most of the rats you typically find in homes are not the five pound sewer rats you hear about in the news (most are Roof Rats or Norway Rats), they can reach up to a pound in weight and when you encounter one, it’s not a pleasant experience. While their size makes it more difficult for them to gain entry into a home, rats can still squeeze through an opening the size of a quarter. Rats may nest on your property (in woodpiles, sheds or a garage) where they represent a threat and that gets worse if they decide to explore your home, which they are often driven to do in the fall as natural food sources decline.
Like all common household pests, rats represent a health issue. Scientists list 33 different diseases that household pests are known to carry, which means having rats in or around your home can put your family’s health at risk. Rats can also bite when cornered, and this can result in a nasty wound for kids, pets and adults. Although the risk is low, rats have also been known to carry rabies, making any bite something to be concerned about. Rather than putting up with these creatures and risking them making forays into your home, at the first sign of rats call Terminix exterminators and schedule a no obligation home inspection by one of our professional rat exterminators.
