 St Pete FL Rat Exterminator for your home or business

Whether you are hearing scratching in your attic or walls, have seen chewed wires, cables or other possessions or actually seen a furry critter race across your floor, the reality is the same – you have at least one rat in your home and if one got in, it will only be a matter of time before there are more.  As is true in most situations, it’s best to address this as soon as possible, chances are it will not go away just on its own. 

Not only is it unsettling to have a rat or rats in your home it can be dangerous as well.  According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) over 35 diseases are spread by rats and mice worldwide.   While most diseases are passed indirectly, there are many health risks involved.  Rats carry parasites, fleas and mites which can affect the health of you, your family and your pets, along with your food supplies. 

 In addition to the health risks, once inside these pesky critters can damage your home itself.  They can chew through walls, support beams, cables, wires, furniture and the list goes on and on.  When left unattended your home can transform from a healthy, wholesome environment to a place of destruction, damage and disease. 

As a leading St Pete FL Rat Exterminator, we understand the dangers and risks involved with rats in the home and therefore we provide an all-inclusive rat extermination service.  Our experienced technicians will locate and seal up those access openings to ensure other rats will not enter your home or business.  Once sealed up we will quickly and quickly eliminate the rats with baited snap traps.  We will return multiple times within 7-10 days to remove the snapped traps and set and bait new ones.

Rat Poison Services

February 4th, 2012

 

Tampa Rat Poison Exterminator Services

 

•  Placing Poison out for the rats and mice in your attic should be the very last resort that any homeowner should consider for do-it-yourself.  Don’t believe everything you read on the packs of Rat and Mouse Poison.  When the package states in big red letters  ”ONCE  RATS EAT THE POISON they will go outside in search of water and die”…..nothing could be further from the truth!  Rats that have eaten the poison are not guaranteed to go outside and die.  It is very likely that they will stay right where they are in your structure and will gnaw the black insulated foam off freon lines from your ac in search of the ice cold water that these lines sweat once the foam is chewed off. The point being that the odds are high that they will just stay inside and die which will result in you, your family and friends having to deal with the hideous odor of decaying rat flesh (for a few months in many cases).

•  Poison should only be considered to be used outside when one is wanting to reduce the amount of rats running around your home at night but only after all entry points have been sealed and rats and mice can no longer re-gain access inside the home.

•  Commercial-grade, industry approved commerical weighted bait stations can be used for the rats outside of your home or business.  We help determine the appropriate number of poison bait stations based on the layout of your location and provide monthly monitoring services insuring stations are keep full of fresh poison bait.

•  When the need arises and you want the removal of a dead rat or even a family of poisoned rodents from your attic or walls feel free to contact us immediately by phone or email after hours! 

•  1:00 AM Emergency Home CallsAll too often is the case that it’s after hours and you’re trying to get some sleep but the rats you previously heard running in the attic are at it again.  Except now, they have chewed through your walls and are nesting under your bed or the beds of your loved ones.  Even worse, a few of them may have eaten some of the poison you put out and are now rotting somewhere within your attic or walls….the smell being so rancid you just need to leave for the night.  In situations like this one, you can try contacting us by email requesting an emergency visit.  (Understandably, after-business-hours visits will be higher than our standard service fee.)

How to Trap For Rats And Mice

February 4th, 2012

How To trap for Rats and Mice Yourself

Do not use poison

Using poison in your attic when you are hearing or seeing rats in your attic or walls at night is not the answer. Once rats consume a lethal dose of poison; whats your guarantee that the rats will somehow just die outside and not somewhere within the hidden voids of your walls of your home?  Rats dying in the walls of your home creates yet another complex situation.  So before you just throw some poison in your attic consider the piece of mind that comes with a professional exclusion service by Nelson’s coupled with our Lifetime Rat or Rodent warranty for your home .

The best way is by using snap traps

• Using snap traps is the fasest and most effective way for one to eliminate any rat infestation within their home or attic. 

• Dont be cheap….buy 15-20 Snap Traps and place them throughout your attic.  You don’t want this job taking months to catch the possible 12 to 25 rats or family of rats that could be either living or nesting in your attic. 

• Be sure to bait each trap (With a good bait) & one with a rat attractant lurer (this is very important).   If you can’t locate rat lurer, try wrapping peanut butter in a paper towel. The paper towel works well because if you just dab some peanut butter on a trap, more often then not the rats and mice will simply just lick it off without setting off the trap. 

Where to set the snap traps 

• Locating the right places where recent activity has been identified is very important place to start for the average homeowner attempting to successfully & quickly eliminate a rat infestation in your attic. Finding tunnels made by the rats in the insulation is a very good place to start when wanting to better understand the best place for one use snap traps to catch rats and mice.

• Trapping rats with cage traps can be a very lengthy process with little to no success. However, when the rats are running around the kitchen, trapping inside the home with pet/child proof trapping stations is of the utmost importance for everyone’s safety including children and pets.

•  If for any reason you begin to have second thoughts on trapping for rats and mice your self feel free to call upon our services.

Contact us and we’ll have our owner come out and inspect your structure to identify the areas that are allowing your unwanted rodents access inside.  At that time, his professional recommendation will be made and you will be advised of your all-inclusive price that will not just include sealing up your openings, but trapping and the assurance of unlimited No Charge return visits including re-baiting and removal of your unwanted rodents.

Tampa Animal Waste Clean Up

February 3rd, 2012

Tampa Animal Waste Clean Up Attic Services

 

Remove and eliminate Rodent, Rat or Squirrel waste

Our Attic Clean Up & Removal Services include removal of animal waste and odor from rat urine & droppings left behind in attic.

• Wild Animal Waste is a Biohazard

Just because your attic might be out of sight,  is no reason to ignore the biohazard build up from nesting wild animals. Choosing to ignore this severe health risk can have very serious health consequences for you and your loved ones. Ignored rat or animal infestations even over a short period of time can also pose a very serious health risk to your fresh air that is pumped throughout your air conditioning system. Avoid the possibilities of constantly breathing in the spores of rat feces or the germs of urine build up from within your attic or air conditioning ductwork. ( insert video of palm harbor homes compersimesed air system )

• Rat – Rodents or animal dropping left behind only to be later photographed by a prospective home buyers home inspectors service to be detailed in his report of necessary and recommended things to have addresses prior to the closing of sale of your biggest investment…..all too often grossly neglected feces and urine build up within the attic brings about a doubt or a steep finanical mess just before a scheduled closing with the bank.
         
• Left behind animal waste including urine – will attract other animals including rats rodents & mice. Rodents are very tenacious & inquisitive resulting in their constant quest to seek out new potential nesting sights
 
• All too often customers think that burning strong oil essence is all they have to do to somehow remove the smell and waste issues left behind…Nothing could be further from the truth.   Burning peppermint oil essences can help at masking the awful permeating smell of rotting flesh of rats coming from within your walls or attic.  Living in Tampa, FL especially in the summer months will cause one to quickly wish that they hadn’t used poison in their attic in lieu of sealing up the home professionally and quickly trapping the rats.                                                                                                       
Here are some examples of pictures of animal waste left behind in customers attics, kitchens and  inside their air conditioning duct work.
