Rat And Mice Removal In Memphis TN


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?

That tiny, squeaking, scratching noise in your wall?  Or overhead in your ceiling?  That tiny noise that gives you the creeps and won't let you sleep at night for fear of something suddenly appearing in your bed?  And yes, if you are hearing that noise mostly at night, then you probably have a rat.  Or two.  Or even dozens.

Did you know that a female rat can go into heat days after she has a litter? As a result, just a few rats can grow into an infestation in no time.  Rats do not like to be out in the open because of predators.  They prefer dark, warm, safe places to hide such as your attic or walls.  So by the time you actually see a rat, all the good places to hide in your home are probably full of his cousins.  Rats are kind of like potato chips.  You probably won't have just one!

Several factors determine the cost to remove rats and mice. 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.

Many pest control operators will “treat” a rodent problem with poison. This solution will work, but it does nothing to prevent a future rodent problem. Another thing to consider is that It is very common for rats or rodent to die within your home after they eat the poison. This can lead to bad smells from a dead rodent in your attic, under the house, or in the wall.

Most professionals in the wildlife industry consider rats to be some of the most dangerous and destructive animals to have on your property. These types of rodents are known for their excessive chewing which helps to regulate the size of their teeth. Common items they chew on in your home are air conditioning duct work, wiring, wood, metal and plastic pipes, and concrete.


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!
