Rats are a common nuisance for home and business owners across the country. They have the ability to invade offices, homes, apartments, attics, and even cars in search of water, shelter, and food. It's important to hire a professional exterminator who is experienced in trapping and rat removal. These pests are very adept at making homes in tight spaces. If you hire our rat removal specialists, you'll have your entire property inspected closely. This survey helps us to understand your primary rat problems and how they developed. We use our decades worth of knowledge and experience to develop a bespoke and effective strategy for handling the issue at hand. You can rest assured that our removal specialists will take care of your rat problem no matter the extent.

Our services extend beyond the removal of rats from your property. We also take some preventative measures to ensure that rats cannot return through open entry points. These pests can enter into small holes in your attic, basement, or garage. We will take extra steps to locate and seal up any openings that may encourage rats to enter. The inspection process takes us all-around your house from the attic to the basement. As these rodents can carry ticks, lice, mites, fleas, and other unwanted insects, it's important to work on a method of trapping, exclusion, and removal as soon as possible.


There are many steps that are involved in the process of rodent removal. These steps include inspection, exclusion, reduction in population, trapping, and sanitation. Professionals and exterminators look for ten telltale signs of rodent activity in a home: rodent odors, rodent sounds, living or dead rodents, urine stains, grease marks, runways, burrows, gnawing damage, tracks, and droppings. Due to the rate at which rodents defecate, droppings are the most common signs of a rat infestation. The Roof and Norway rat are some of the most common rats found in homes in Cumming and other towns throughout Georgia.

Trapping and exclusion are two preferred methods for dealing with a rat infestation. Snap traps are an effective tool for trapping these rodents. Snap traps are comprised of a wooden, plastic, or metal trap that has a loaded spring and a snapping hinge. The goal of these traps is to kill rodents quickly and painlessly. These traps can be used throughout your home whether the rats are in the garage, attic, or basement. Exterminators will place these traps in areas with the most rat activity.

Exclusion is another effective and popular form of rodent control. This method is accomplished by sealing off all points of entry into your home. When dealing with rats and an infestation, prevention is much better than a cure. Exterminators can help by sealing off and locating all points of entry. Our professionals will determine whether trapping or exclusion is the best form of removal for your unique situation.

Rats act the same in Cumming as they do in other environments around the country. The real differences in behavior aren't due to the location of the rodent but its particular species. For example, roof rats are better climbers than Norway rats. However, Norway rats are also able to climb up trees and make their way into attics.

Although chewing may seem like an annoying habit, this can actually be dangerous to humans. Rats who gnaw on plastic and wood end up leaving big wholes in walls and floors. The chewing can even take place near wiring and cause electrical hazards. Rats chew continuously in order to wear down their teeth that continue to grow for their whole lives.

Exterminators look for areas that provide a source of water and food during the removal process. It is in these places that a majority of rats will congregate and build nests. Homes with a lot of trash lying around have a habit of attracting rats for this reason. It's important to maintain a clean house when hiring a professional for rodent removal.
