Rodent control can cost anywhere from $300 to $500 for an average sized home. We’re coming in, investigating every nook and cranny, getting everything sealed off, and getting the rodents trapped and removed.
We also provide additional services. For example, we can also assist with sanitizing, cleaning up and fixing the damage the rats have done. We also guarantee that when we come to your house, those pesky rodents don’t come back.
You don’t even have to adopt a cat to keep them away.

Sealing up all the entry points can help, but there are things you can do as well.
For example, many people get rats or rodents because they don’t do a good job of keeping outdoor garbage bins secured. This attracts them in the first place. Then they target the attic, where insulation and a lack of human traffic provides them with a warm, dry nesting environment.
If you feed birds then you need to use a feeder basket and reduce the amount of food you’re using. Try to put in just enough to feed the birds during the day, ensuring nothing at all is left behind at night.
The first thing we have to do is figure out how rodents are getting into your house in the first place. This allows us to block off their entry points. From there, we use humane bait and traps to get all of the rodents humanely captured for removal.
We take them far from your property and release them into the wild where they won’t be harmed or do harm.
While you might be tempted to kill the rat that bit you, the truth is that killing rats doesn’t help to remove them from your home. When you see one, there are generally many more that you haven’t found. All you are doing is harming one small, intelligent animal who is trying to survive just like you are.
We use humane rat removal efforts to block off all of the methods of egress into your home. We trap the rats and then take them somewhere that they can live their little rat lives without harming humans.
We also teach you how to keep the rats from coming back.
In short, you don’t have to live with these ferocious little pests, but you don’t have to hurt them either. Indeed, it’s best if you don’t try to handle them on your own, as that can put you into direct conflict with them and put you at risk.

As you’ve seen, you can get very sick. While you may luck out and walk away from a rat bite or scratch with little more than a small, irritating wound, it’s important to see a doctor right away.
There’s a good chance you’ll need to be tested for diseases and there’s an even better chance you’ll need antibiotics.
If you decide to take a “wait and see” approach you should head to the doctor immediately if you start experiencing joint pain, fever, chills, muscle pains, headaches, skin rashes, vomiting, or diarrhea. It’s also a good idea to head to the doctor if you see pus at the skin wound, or any kind of skin rash. Be sure to keep the wound exceedingly clean.
