Roof Rats Guide

Roof rats (or black rats) are common rodents that work to find consistent food sources and water, making homes and barns perfect habits for them. These agile pests can be illusive, widespread nesters, and dangerous to humans due to the diseases they can carry.

Treatment

Roof Rats

For Roof rats, our experts use snap traps with various kinds of food and bait items. We set traps away from pets or children and make sure your family’s safety is prioritized. We work to discover the best and most effective locations for traps that will lead to their removal from your home and property. Roof rats are leery toward new things in their environment and it may take several days for traps to be effective.

Our pest experts take a tailored approach when treating your property and work to ensure that your concerns are addressed and your home is protected, inside and out. We’re dedicated to providing you with peace of mind and making sure you enjoy your home.
