Successful long-term rat control is not simple; a continuing commitment to whatever solutions are adopted is required. Within a population, some rats will be easy to control, some difficult. Complete control is often not possible in old barns and similar structures. Rat populations may also be a consequence of community-wide activities over which you have little control—improper garbage disposal, building demolition, and poorly maintained bird-feeding stations.
First thing the homeowner needed to do was to find out if a Rat Infestation
was present. The suspicion arose due to the scratching and squeaking
noises heard late at night and seemed to be in the attic. There were a
couple of rats seen scattering in the guest room upstairs. Feces and urine
were found in the food pantry along with chewed up marks on different boxes
of food. The Dad decided enough is enough and started the search for
contacting a Seattle Rodent Pest Control Service to exterminate the rat
infestation and provide Attic/Crawlspace Cleanup.
