Ann Arbor Rat Removal and Rodent Control

The best rat removal company in Ann Arbor, MI is Attic Rat, Inc. This is because Attic Rat is not a traditional pest control company or exterminator. They are an animal removal company that specializes in rodent control. Rats and mice are not like insects, but most Ann Arbor pest control companies treat rodents like insects - they use poison. Poison is a stupid and even harmful way to treat a rodent infestation. Poison will never kill all the rats, and the process is never-ending, with never ending invoices. Attic Rat does rat removal the correct way, with PERMANENT results in as little as a week. Once you hire them, you'll never have to see them again. See their year 2021 prices below. This is the process:

  1. Inspection of the entire house, in the attic and top to bottom, including roof
  2. Identification of all rat entry holes, and sealing them shut with steel repairs
  3. Trapping and removal of 100% of the rats inside the home or building
  4. Cleanup of rat feces and odor, and repair of rat damage such as chewed wires

Attic Rat Cost

Washtenaw County, Ann Arbor Rat Control Situation:

I came accross your article about killing rats or rodents in the attic. I had a very bad squirrel infestation in my attic, and I had to get professional help. They did just what you recommended by putting cages in two places on or near the roof that were accessable to the attic. It did work for a long time. About eight years in fact. Had no problem after that until now. This problem just started, and I am not sure what is running up there. So far I have not seen any evidence . I never considered rats, but if it is that, I will start leaving a bunch of heavy duty snap traps right away. There is no way however that with the size of my attic, that I am ever going to find their entrance and exit points. I may have to resort to the professional again . Thanks for your info. I hope It might do the trick.

Aloha David! Am I glad to find you! Read your site a few minutes and saw your invite to e-mail you and here I am. Our great hunter cat just brought a baby rat to the front door and when I opened it, I THINK he carried the little creature in. happened so fast, I'm not sure it was in his mouth, but I'm pretty sure and worried about it if he did. He must have been ready to play with it some more, dropped it in the room as he came in, and now I don't know what to do. We share a house, and this room is our bedroom / living room with lots of nooks and crannies, dressers, couch and places to hide..... and die. It was stil very young, so maybe not weaned yet? Can babies survive without a momma rat? It had about a 3-4" long body and a 4-5" tail maybe. It was playing dead by the door and suddenly Kitty Kun, picked it up and ran in with it. (I think) Don't know if it was injured, but I'm also worried about fleas fleeing if the rat dies. What to do? Thanks so much, am especially worried about germs and fleas. With warm aloha, Gail

Ann Arbor Rat Control Tip of The Week

Ways To Get Rats Out Of My Garage

Clean Your Garage Out:
Before you begin setting down traps to work on removing rats from the area, you need to eliminate places where they can hide. Store trash and other items outside of your garage. Clean out your garage to make sure that there is no need for a competing food source or a problem with rats hiding in enclosed containers.

Setting Traps:
Setting down traps and using various methods for getting rid of rats is the next step. You can consider items like glue traps, snap traps, and certain types of poison. Rats can easily track poison around a garage so it can be important to keep your pets out of the area whenever possible.

Seal Up Areas Of Your Garage:
If rats have the chance to get into your garage, this could mean that their numbers will grow. Sealing up the ceiling and looking for signs where rats can get in can be important.

Making sure that you dispose of materials where rats have been can be important. Get rid of nest materials and make sure that you remove any of the rat carcasses from your garage as these can start to smell and cause other issues. Proper disposal can be a solution that will help you to remove the rats from your home and make sure they do not return.

Use Bleach:
Rats have a great sense of smell and they will often avoid areas that have been cleaned or bleached. If you have an area that has been bleached, that will often prevent rats from making their way into your garage and avoiding the area.
