Rat Control Services in Contra Costa County

Rats have a special place in the hearts of pest control professionals because they were the first animal to be professionally controlled.

What to Expect From Our Rat Abatement Services

What can you expect our exterminators to do when they come to handle the rats in your home? Our rat abatement services provide homeowners with plenty of tested methods that keep rats away from homes, and we’ll give you some knowledge of what to expect from our rat control services in Contra Costa County.

  • Entry Prevention – The first step to getting rid of rats is preventing them from entering in the first place. Our rat pest control service seals up entrances and exits, so rats can’t find new places to hide in your home.
  • Rat Removal – Using expert identification techniques and following typical rat habits, we plant traps and poison in the most effective locations for rat control services.
  • Decontamination and Restoration – Rats cause tons of damage in addition to the

bacteria and diseases they bring into a home. Wherever the rats are, we clean out their droppings, disinfect the area and seal holes to get your home back to peak performance.

Exclusion, or “rat-proofing,” is provided to our customers upon request and is available at an additional charge. It includes a visual inspection of the house foundation and neighboring fences. Proofing is highly recommended to help reduce rat activity in the long run. Not all homes will be capable of being rat proofed, so an inspection will let us know what can be done. If a rodent roof inspection is desired, please mention it. We charge a flat rate of $150 for roof inspections.

Once the inspection is complete, our customers are given a verbal or written report of what needs fixing. For side doors to the garage or garage doors or weather stripping that require fixing, we recommend that the homeowner call a handyman who can do the work. Our technicians can fix other smaller holes for a minor fee.
