Having rats in your attic is not a problem that no one wants. The realization of the infestation leads to a long list of things that you are going to have to do and that can lead to a serious tension headache. While there isn’t much we can do for the headache, Pinnacle Pest Control can take care of everything else.
If you ever had a rat infestation, one thing that you will always remember is the smell. It is just disgusting. That smell of the rat urine and excrement stays with you for a long time. We don’t want to pile on bad news on top of bad news, but that odor, and the stuff that causing it is doing more than just ruining your insulation. That odor becomes a beacon around your neighborhood summoning other rats letting them know that nice warm home has been found with plenty of food. Much like a lighthouse that keeps boats away from the rocks in the fog, that odor emanating from your house becomes a lighthouse for other rats in your area, but with the opposite effect. Instead of telling them to stay clear, it is pointing the way.
The first thing you will notice when a Pinnacle Rat Control Technician comes to your house is that we are taking the guesswork out of how we begin the process of finding the rats. Instead of using secondary clues to estimate how many rats are hiding in your attic, we are introducing thermal scanning which can scan your area looking for heat signatures, which are the rats themselves. With this, we have a much better vision of what we are dealing with, and we can customize our approach to your specific situation.
From the start, we perform a thorough inspection of your property and residence to look for and remediate all possible entry points. As a part of our overall service, we also create an exclusion plan to keep more rats from being able to get into your home. Once our traps are placed, we will return as many times as it takes to get rid of your unwanted guests. With our two-year rodent-free guarantee, we will return every four months to check on and restock the rat traps. Of course, in the meantime, if you hear any further evidence of rats, you can call us at any time.
Now that we have eradicated the problem and guaranteed a rodent-free attic, we must take care of the beacon effect getting rid of the odor. Not only do we get rid of the rats, we offer attic decontamination and odor removal plans which turns off the lighthouse and keeps the neighborhood rats away.
This is the time of year when rats and rodents are most active. They are nocturnal creatures and as the overnight temperature drops, they will be looking for a place to keep warm and find food.
If you hear the tell-late scurrying in your attic letting you know you have problem, call us right away to set up an appointment. If you don’t currently have a problem, there is no better time to make sure it stays that way. We can be reached at any time at 916-381-5793.
