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.

At this point there had been rat sightings and other evidence found
throughout the home. The Seattle Rodent Pest Control service investigation
begun by locating the rat nests, urine and feces and even found dead rats
in the attic and crawlspace. All other rooms in home were also checked for
rodent infestation. The pest control technician found that the insulation
was damaged due to droppings and pee which creates a horrible smell and
germs were airborne throughout the entire home. Because the rat infestation
being as widespread as it was an outdoors search for the rodents outside
was completed. Areas checked were garages sheds and other areas used for
storage. More importantly the perimeter of the home was checked for any and
all openings such as, holes, cracks and crevices that were giving the
rodents access to the home.
