Rat Extermination

Rat Extermination in [kds_locationRats are a problem just about everywhere in the United States. While most people think of rats as a singular gray rodent scurrying about dark alleys, there are actually several different kinds of rats, including cotton rats, roof rats, and Norway rats.

What makes rat extermination so difficult is their biology and habits. Rats are instinctively wary of things new to their surroundings, including rat control measures such as traps and bait. That’s why it’s so important contact professional rat exterminators such as Ford’s Hometown Services.

Rats tend to colonize in attics, burrows, under concrete and porches, in wall voids and other hard-to-reach places where they can introduce disease-carrying parasites such as fleas and ticks into your home, as well as diseases and bacteria in their feces and urine. All of this makes rat extermination critical for your family’s health and protection.

In general rodents (and there are over 2000 different species!) are rapid breeders and their skeletal structure makes it easy for them to slip through cracks and small spaces to get into your home, garage, and sheds where they can set up house and multiply. Rat removal by rat control specialists such as Ford’s can make a big difference in how quickly you can eliminate the problem from your property.

Rat extermination methods can vary, depending on the size and severity of your challenge. Some of the more popular and effective rat control methods include rat baiting and rat poisoning. Ford’s rat exterminators will carefully diagnose your situation and recommend the most effective rat removal process to ensure that you have complete rat elimination.
