How Is a Rat Extermination and What Should I Expect?

Having rodent issues in your Greater Pittsburgh commercial or residential property can cause you a lot of stress. Unfortunately, the problem won’t disappear by constantly trying different DIY rat removal techniques. The best way to get rid of rats from your home is by hiring a rat exterminator to remove the rodent permanently through safe and effective methods. Here is how to prepare for and what to expect from a visit by a rat exterminator.

Preparing for a Rat Exterminator

Before a rat exterminator visits your property, you should prepare by:

  • Clearing areas near rat activity – Make sure to remove items on top of the fridge and inside the cabinets beneath your sink. Clearing the path for the technician by removing any trash or clutter and sweeping the floors helps them do their job quickly and efficiently.
  • Storing food away properly – Keep all food in an air-tight container. Foods like snacks, candy, pet food and cereals should also be kept in a plastic container that rats can’t chew through.

What to Expect from a Professional Rat Exterminator

At Critter Control® of Pittsburgh, our certified and trained rat exterminators use a proven, four-step method to remove all nuisance rats from your property. Our process does not rely on toxic chemicals, so it is safe to use around your family and pets.

The steps that our rat exterminator will take when visiting your home or business include:

  1. Inspection – Our rat exterminator will thoroughly inspect your home to determine the severity of the rat infestation and identify areas of exposure before creating a personalized plan to remove the rats.
  2. Removal – Our technician will remove all rats using efficient and humane trapping methods.
  3. Prevention – Rats are small enough to fit through a crack as big as a quarter inch. Therefore, we will seal all entry points in your property with caulking or copper wire mesh to prevent re-entry.
  4. Restoration – We will clean and repair any damage caused by the rats on your property.
