There are several indicators that can help you detect the presence of rats, no matter the species. The signs are similar to those of a mouse infestation. Look for the following clues to determine whether or not you need to call a rat exterminator.

Urine and droppings

There may be urine and droppings in the areas where the rats have settled. Common locations include the attic and the basement.

How do our rat exterminators operate?

In order to offer you sustainable and eco-friendly solutions, our team of professional exterminators uses extermination techniques that are safe for the occupants. Our methods are certified by the Quebec Ministry of the Environment, and the repellents used are approved by Health Canada.

The steps our rat exterminators take include the following:

  1. Inspecting the premises to determine the extent of the infestation, identify the affected areas and find the entry points the rats are using.
  2. Exterminating the rats with traps and poison.
  3. Sealing and caulking the entry points to prevent the rats from returning.
  4. Decontaminating the premises with repellents to disinfect the space, eliminate the bacteria and viruses left by the rats and limit the chances of the infestation recurring.

Why call a rat exterminator?

The presence of rats on a property can pose significant risks as well as being a nuisance. Hiring a rat exterminator is vital in order to protect yourself and your home.

Prevent damage to your home

Like many rodents, rats tend to gnaw on anything they can find in order to eat, build their nests and make their way through obstacles. Since their teeth continue to grow throughout their lives, the rodents are forced to gnaw constantly to keep them worn down.  This destructive habit can have serious consequences for the occupants of a house. In addition to furniture, insulation, foundations and water pipes, rats can chew through electrical wires, leading to short circuits that can have dramatic consequences.

Protect against health risks

Rats can also carry bacteria and diseases that are dangerous to humans. During their nocturnal escapades, they may end up contaminating food or drinking water and transmitting disease orally.

They can also transmit disease through bites, urine, droppings and hairs. Pets and insects can also contribute indirectly to the spread of bacteria and disease.

Therefore, it’s important to act quickly at the first sign of a potential infestation. Pest prevention services are also available to prevent an infestation from occurring in the first place.
