Check out our special detailed report about rats and mice and how to get rid of them.
A roof rat is an exceptional climber and prefers to nest above ground in an elevated location. These locations can include your attic, trees and sometimes your sub areas. Norway rats on the other hand prefer to live underground and in the sewers. The Norway Rat is substantially larger than his nimble footed cousin the Roof Rat. Both of these rats only need an opening roughly the size of a quarter to gain entry to your home. The mouse being much smaller then either of the rats only requires an opening roughly the size of a dime.
The first step to a successful rats and/or mice control program is a thorough inspection by an Omega technician. They will be looking for entrance points, harborage areas and possible food sources. Your Omega technician will identify these problem areas and recommend the best solutions and treatment strategies for keeping out and getting rid of rats and mice. If rodents are inside the structure we recommend using traps as opposed to rodenticide (poison). The reason for this is that we can not guarantee where the rats and mice will die once they ingest a lethal dose of poison.
Listed below is a short list of items you can check to ensure rats and mice do not enter your home or structure:
