Owner Mike Maynard talks rat removal with Fox 13 News. An informative look inside commercial and residential rat problems.
Friends, only 2 rats can create over 1500 more rats in a year. JUST those two rats. Their offspring can create even more!
So if you see rats around your home or business, nip that problem in the bud now!
Did you hear that? A little scratching, squeaking sound in your wall? Or over your head? If you are hearing scratching, running noises in your walls (especially at night), then you just might have yourself a rat problem. Roof rats and Norway rats are common in the Arlington TN area. Roof rats are called roof rats because they usually access your home through the construction gap between your shingles and your walls.
With all the construction going on in Arlington, rat removal and control can be tough for home and business owners. At Apex Wildlife Control, we work hard to rid your home and business of rodents by trapping plus sealing up entry points to prevent rodents from coming back. Sealing of your home is referred to as exclusion, and our team of exclusion experts know exactly what to look for when it comes to sealing rodent entry points!
So how much does exclusion cost? Well, it usually depends on several factors. The two main factors are the size and scope of your rat problem, and how many areas of your home or property need to be sealed. Most rodent, mice,
and rat removal and control jobs will require trapping and repairs to
prevent the rodents from returning. Rat, mice, or rodent removal cost
will be based on how severe the problem is and how much work is required
to repair the damage done.
You have probably heard that some pest control operators will “treat” a rat problem with poison. Unless you want to put up with the smell of dead, poisoned rats in your walls and attic, this really isn't a very good idea. Removing a dead rat from your attic is simple, but cutting into your walls to remove dead rats that have died in there? Pricey! We don't want that for you. Our methods guarantee rat removal without the terrible smell of poisoned rats!
When it comes to wildlife in Arlington TN, rats are some of
the most dangerous and destructive animals to have on your property. This is because rats have to chew constantly to keep their teeth filed down. Did you know that a rat's teeth can grow up to SIX INCHES in a year? Imagine a rat with fangs! I know that would freak me out! So unfortunately for us, rats have to chew things like duct work, wiring, wood, metal and plastic pipes, and concrete...all of which are in your home.
A Little Known Fact About Rats:
Did you know that a rat's bite is stronger per inch than the bite of a great white shark? The strength of a rat's bite can be up to 12 tons (24,000 pounds) per square inch. However, the bite of a great white shark is only around 2 tons (4,000 pounds) per square inch.Rats can chew through anything that's not harder than their teeth!
At Apex Wildlife Control, our skilled wildlife technicians go through a two month long training course in not only trapping and removing nuisance wildlife, but also looking for entry points. Trapping rats without sealing your home is like swatting flies and leaving the door open. Our wildlife technicians do not just scatter a few traps around your attic and hope for the
best. They will ensure that your home is free of rodents and properly sealed and guarded against any future re-entry.
