Proper Rat Removal

Hi my name is Brendan Mangnitz and I am the owner of 24/7 Wildlife Control. I have been in business now on my own for nearly five years and I have been in this industry for close to 10 years working with friends, family and other companies while learning, training and understanding the wildlife removal & nuisance animal control industry. I started off by graduating from the University of South Florida with my Business Management degree. After this degree I got into the field of wildlife control because I knew there was a big issue with rats getting into people's residences and I realized that there are not many professional rat trapping companies. I wanted to be one of the most professional rat removal companies and rat trapping companies out there. You want to hire professional and honest bat removal and rat trapper that is properly licensed, insured, bonded, has workers comp, but additionally you want to hire rat removal companies and rat trappers that show up in uniforms, have wonderful customer service, have clean trucks and respect both of you and the animals like the rats being trapped. We treat our animals in a humane way.

Professional rat trapping generally involves the rat trapping company to initially come out to your home and perform a free inspection and evaluation in order to determine that you indeed are having an issue with rats or that you may have rats in the attic. During this free inspection and evaluation, the professional wildlife and rat removal company will get in the attic and take a look at everything that's going on and identify whether or not you do have rats in your attic. We will look for rat poop and we will also identify the rat poop based on the smell and even take a look and listen for the sounds of the rats. Once we are in the attic and it is confirmed that you are having an issue with rats, a professional rat removal company will then get on the roof and walk the exterior of the property to identify the areas that the rats are using to get into your home.

The bait that’s used to catch rats will depend on the age and maturity level of the rats. What I recommend for people trying to do this themselves, or if they want to make sure that the company they’re using is doing a good job, is to look for certain signs with rat trapping. You can look at the picture of the rat trapping to the left. This is a live rat trap. I put the bait for the rat in the back of the trap. The idea is that the rat will smell the bait; Rat bait will smell good to the rat and the rat will enter the trap and the door and will then close inward. The rat can now not get out of the trap. This is humane because the trap will not kill or harm the rat.

Rat poison is very dangerous. You never want to poison rats; always trap the rats as there are no effective deterrents. In my opinion, for rat removal, the best way to get rid of rats is to trap them by using a bait such as cat food. Cat food is a good bait for rat trapping but every now and then you may accidentally catch a cat. If you catch a cat in your rat trap you should open up the door and let the cat out and reset the trap. Marshmallows and peanut butter are a great idea for bait and a certain trick for catching rats. This rat bait is attractive to more juvenile and baby rats; it's sweeter and they generally seem to enjoy it.

Customers ask me all the time how to get rid of rats permanently and the simple answer is once you catch the rats and you know that there are no more rats in the attic, you need to close off the access point to prevent more rats from coming in. This is called an exclusion; you definitely want to hire a professional rat removal company to perform exclusion work and rat removal in the home in order to guarantee that no more rats come back. 24/7 Wildlife Control is a rat control company with services in almost every major city in this country, but for the areas that I do not service there are professional rat control companies near you.
