Rats rats rats rats rats rats rats rats. Soooooo many rats!
They live and nest and feed in our homes and businesses, cars and trucks, attics and crawlspaces, wall voids, wood piles (they LOVE woodpiles).
They come in uninvited and cause billions in damage around the world annually to homes, businesses and agriculture.
Rats will often make their presence known by chewing water lines (causing flooding), pulling out and nesting in insulation, and by leaving clear evidence (more poops and evidence of chewing in your living spaces such as basements, kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, and yes even bedrooms.
They live as well in Burrows in the ground which can be difficult to locate but which can be identified by seeing a clear and obvious round to oblong shape hole which is smooth and will often have loose dirt piled up around the opening.
We are experts at locating these areas and dealing with them PERMANENTLY!!!
The two species on Vancouver Island are the Norway Rats which are the more prolific, and the Roof rats, which are smaller and less prolific than their ground-dwelling cousins but can be equally as damaging to your home.
Both species will have several litters a year and will have anywhere from 4 to 7 babies per nesting cycle.
We offer a variety of eradication options depending on your situation and we’ll price accordingly.
Programs include trapping out the existing animals, blocking their entry points, basic non-structural repairs to concrete, areas, door and window frames, around the gutter lines and soffit areas too.
We will also cut back trees and brushes from off of the house to prevent further ingress into building and will clean up existing messes (yes poops) and damaged insulation and other items that are beyond repair or usefulness due to fecal matter and urine damage.
We also offer weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual plans for both home and businesses such as restaurants, hotels, food processing plants and farms.
If you call sooner, rather than later, you will save yourself not only the grief and inconvenience of dealing with a rat issue but also save money, as the longer they are around the more expensive it will be to deal with in the future!
