Rat Control, Trapping & Removal Services
We can rid you of Rat problems safely and efficiently
Often considered the most unwanted pest animals, rats carry diseases transmittable to humans, damage property and belongings, and contaminate food and water sources. Two of the most common rat species in the United States are the Norway rat and the roof rat. As infestations are usually the result of easy access to food and water, individuals who keep proactive sanitation habits reduce the possibility of attracting problematic rat populations.

Most rats weigh between 5 ounces and a pound, have grayish fur, and possess scaly, hairless tails. They are larger than mice and can reach nearly a foot in length. As is typical of rodents, rats have protruding incisors, whiskers, and small eyes.
Rats are omnivorous foragers. The rodents commonly dig through trash bins and landfills in residential areas for easy meals. Both Norway and roof rats also pilfer animal food meant for livestock or cats and dogs. Other favorite meals include snakes, frogs, and even other rodents like mice.
Almost any habitat is suitable for rats, as they adapt with ease to the available resources of a given area. Antarctica is the only continent without rat populations. Desirable habitats provide water and food sources in steady, surplus supplies. As such, rats maintain a cosmopolitan distribution and are regularly found wherever people live.
