Albany County, Albany Rat Control Situation:
Hi David, I am writing you from Albany NY and I've had /have mice and rats around my property and mice in my roof. A licensed pest control company has done a quick inspection in my roof and because of insulation he put blue/green dry/dried blocks in the roof (forgotten the name!), and he has done this at least twice. He found one mouse in the roof space/ cavity. This mouse was the only one and he found that was underneath one air-conditioning duct. The stink in the house was bad but he placed a deodorising item in that spot. I really feel that there is still activity as I seem hear persistent cracking sound coming from the roof space on occasions. Evidence of having rats (lots of poo was found) in my garden shed. Bait was placed in the shed and it seems that the rats may have "relocated" after having eaten this dry stuff and probably would have died somewhere else. Nothing observed but I really feel at un-ease about my beautiful house that is only just 7 years old. I am really thinking that a few run down houses away from me is where the offending creatures are coming from. Both on the left and right side of my house are the course of the trouble and I have parted with $600.00 in pest control and $3.500.00 in gutterguard, professionally installed. The council has written letters to the occupiers of these houses. Also the weep-holes are fitted with a barrier against vermin. I cleaned out the shed and have disposed of as much stuff possible. My family has helped cleaning that area and sealed the holes and entry points as well. How am I able to find someone who can address my needs to identify possible hick-ups which may have been overlooked? You are saying that I may need professional wildlife removal instead of pest control, as they really don't address the problem properly? Hope I make sense with my letter and I live in Salisbury,South Australia, 5108 Thanks in advance
Albany Rat Control Tip of The Week
What Is The Cost Of Rat Removal?
Having rats in your home comes with the immediate need to get them removed if you don't want them to cause damage that you can't afford. And to remove them permanently, you have to get it done properly.
The first thing you need to do is hire skilled professionals. We have seen many homeowners choose pest control companies where they are asked to pay a sum monthly just to remove the rats in their homes without getting the results they desired.
You can't afford to make the same mistake. If you want to hire a professional to help remove the rats in your home, you need to choose a wildlife removal service. Apart from getting rid of the rats in your home, they will find and seal off all possible entry holes and prevent further reentry. With their services, you will be able to get it done once and for all.
There is no exact fixed cost for removal. The amount you will be paying depends on several factors. Ideally, if the rat problem you are having in your home is not a complex one, the total cost of removing the rat might run between $300 to $500.
The cost of a rat removal service depends on the part of the country you reside in, the number of rats that need to be removed, the number of service traps that will be needed to remove all the rats, the number of repairs that need to be done, and if cleanup is needed after removing the rats.
The initial cost you will have to pay might seem expensive but you need to understand the fact that it is worth it.
