Rat Extermination & Rodent Control

Our method for rat extermination include rodent baits that will be placed in areas of high rodent traffic. And for those areas that might be accessible for your cats and dogs we will use tamper proof boxes to protect your pets from harm.

Rat Proofing to prevent a rat infestation

Rats can be tenacious, even gnawing through metal to gain access to your home or business, and once inside, they can spread diseases, damage property, and contaminate food. Rats can cause other problems, so it’s vital to eliminate a rat infestation quickly as rats can:

  • Damage property with constant gnawing, rats can damage insulation, chew through floor joists, pipes, doors, floorboards.  Rats will also shred nearly anything for their nests, from paper to linen and plastic.
  • Contaminate foodstuffs as pathogens are in a rat’s urine and droppings, these can transmit diseases such as Weil’s disease (Leptospirosis), Rat bite fever and Salmonellosis.

Mice Extermination

We’ll work to identify the problem areas in your home or business to find where the mice are congregating. The mice extermination process includes internal roof inspections for rat and mice droppings and where access is available we’ll check under the house to search for nest.

Before we begin Mice Extermination we will examine all areas where infestation might be present and apply the necessary rodent control strategies to quickly eliminate pests.

Finding rats in your home or business can be extremely upsetting. Fortunately, there are ways to keep rats away and avoid an infestation.

Pest-proofing your home and removing easy access to food and water can make a significant difference. Even though rats only drink 15 to 60ml per day, they require easy and consistent access to a water source. They will eat almost anything that is put in front of them, but they prefer to eat small amounts of a variety of foods.

See our tips below on practical ways you can help to prevent a problem:

  • Keep foodstuffs in metal or glass containers with tight fitting lids.
  • Tidy inside the house and around the garden - less clutter means less places to hide.
  • Place outdoor rubbish bags in metal bins with securely fitted lids to stop them feeding from contents.
  • Clean up pet food and bird seed debris, and store pet food in robust containers with fitted lids - preferably above ground level.
  • Keep gardens free from debris. If you have a compost heap don’t include organic food waste, as this will attract them.

I have used All Pests services for the last 2 years. Ryan was very professional and approachable, answering any questions I had. We will be having them back again next year. Great service. Due to the recent rains I had to reschedule many times, each time they were very understanding and offered great friendly service.

All Pests Rat Control Solutions

Our certified Technicians provide safe, effective solutions to get rid of rats using industry-leading treatments. One of the quickest and most effective ways to control rats is with rodenticides. We have a large selection of rodenticides suitable for use indoors and out, in a wide variety of formulations too.

Rats are quick, adaptable, and take advantage of any opportunity to get into your home. Climbers, black rats are. Brown rats can climb, but they prefer to burrow, especially near or beneath solid structures such as sheds, garages, and walls.

Swimming in sewers and drain systems is second nature to them, and they make the most of any damaged pipework. Both species will gnaw at gaps in order to make them large enough to allow easy entry.

  4. Set Traps. ...
  5. Use Baits & Poisons Outside. ...
  6. Contact A Professional Pest Management Company.
Professional rat extermination tends to cost between $172 and $520 USD, with an average cost of $342. However, extermination prices could be as high as $1,200 USD or more depending on the size of your rat infestation.
Bait stations use poisoned bait to kill rats. These stations cost about $12–$20 each, but keep in mind that poison can take several days to work, and rats may die inside your walls or other hard-to-reach places. Electronic traps lure the rat in and use a high-voltage shock to kill it.
It generally takes roughly 3 days to one week to get rid of rats with rat poison. Mechanical traps can sometimes take a few days to trap rats because the rodents may be wary of the trap. A pest control professional can remove rats in as little as one day to a few days depending on the size of the infestation.
Rats will return to the same nest as long as the nest has not been disturbed; however, most rats will continue to return to the same nest even if it has been disturbed.
