Rat Control

Smell a Rat? Call Hoffman’s Exterminating!

Of all the rodents you may have to deal with in your life as a property owner, rats are almost certainly going to be the worst. Bigger, and capable of leaving more damage, the main thing that separates a rat from its closest relative, the mouse, is actually fear of humans. Mice tend to be bolder, less wary of things in their path, and more prone to exploring what’s in front of them. But make no mistake, this is not a good thing. Rats’ cautious nature also makes them harder to catch, meaning that a rat infestation may end up taking even more time and money to take care of than your average mouse problem.

The good news about rats? They are no match for our experienced pros at Hoffman’s Exterminating! We offer rat control backed by 30 years of experience and a passion for helping local property owners. Our reputation is built on delivering quality care with customer service, and for our team, no job is too big or too small. Plus with 100% satisfaction guaranteed on every call, there’s no reason not to hire Hoffman’s for rat control and extermination today!

Rats 101

Like mice, rats are attracted to any environment where they can find a reliable food source. You may see different types of rats depending on whether you live in the city or the country, but to prevent rat infestation, proper home sanitation and cleaning is always key. You should also seal and weatherstrip as much of your property as possible, as rats can squeeze their body through a hole as narrow as 20 mm. If you do see a rat in either your home or commercial business, never hesitate to contact a pest control professional. Again, because of their furtive nature, rats will hide as much as possible, so even if you see one, there’s always a chance there are more hiding around your property.

Top signs you need pest control for rats include:

  • Dark droppings
  • Scratching noises (typically coming from your walls or attic)
  • Footprints
  • Rub marks
  • Gnawing marks on plastic or wood
  • Food packaging and wires that have been torn through
  • Small tunnels, or “burrows”
  • Nests (usually made of shredded material, such as fiber or fabric)

This winter, be on the lookout for rats in your attic and insulation. These pests often seek shelter inside your house when it gets cold out, and like to make nests in the warmth of your insulation. Hoffman’s can thoroughly assess your attic and the rest of your property for rat infiltration, and provide safe services for children, pets, and everyone else in your home or business. Our extermination methods are extremely effective, and we may be able to offer exclusion tips to help prevent another infestation from occurring in the future. Remember, rats tend to be wary of anything new in their surroundings, including traps, so even if there is only one rat in your house, you should never hesitate to call our rat control experts at Hoffman’s.
