Jefferson County, Birmingham Rat Control Situation:
Hello David, I believe I have roof rats in my attric and I would like your help. Would you be able to come to my house this week to see what we have going on and let me know the cost? Besides the trapping, do you also do the clean up? I see a bunch of poop up there and don't want to get sick for it staying up there. Thanks you!
Beth, My partner Ben is the rat expert. He does perfect rat control work. Ben is available any day this week. He will do an inspection of the house and attic, and find out how the rats are getting in your home, and seal shut all the entry holes. He sets traps throughout the attic to trap and remove all the rats until they are all gone. The process usually takes 3 service visits, and the cost of the project usually ranges around the $300 - $400 range total, unless you require many repairs, in which case the price could be higher. If you want a free inspection and price quote, Ben can do that. If you accept, he sets the traps and starts the repairs right away. Ben also does attic cleanup and decontamination. He will be able to quote that after an attic inspection. Depending on how big the attic is, and how many droppings, the decon runs from $200 - $300. Ben will call you later today to set up an appointment time.
Thank you for responding so quickly. :) Thank you for your help! Ok, I'm in for the removal for sure! My house is about 1800 livable sq ft with a 2 car garage. I believe my attic is 2400 sq ft. How do you accept payment? Checks? Credit cards? I'd like a quote on the clean up too. I won't be able to do that this week, but I know it has to get done. It's just bad timing with money at the moment...but after my tax return come in we'll be back in business. My husband is available Tu-F morning from 9-10:30am. I'm available tomorrow any time after 3pm and evenings the rest of the week. When you have time, call me and we'll set it up. Thank you so much. If possible, I'd like to have something in motion by Thursday. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
Birmingham Rat Control Tip of The Week
Why Don't High Pitch Sound Deterrent Machines And Strobing Lights Work Against Rats?
The first thing you need to understand about high pitch sound deterrent machines and strobing lights is that these machines have been officially announced as being fraudulent by the Federal Trade Commission. This is enough proof that the efficiency of these repelling devices is self-proclaimed and that they don't have anything to offer when it comes to repelling rats from your home.
Have you been wondering why these devices don't work against rats? Right here, we will be sharing all you need to know about them and why you should consider other means of getting rid of the rats in your home.
High pitch sound deterrent machines or strobing lights that are designed to repel rats using mechanical means. The former uses high pitch sounds that don't affect humans and is not audible to the human hearing to irritate the eardrums of small animals like rats and make them stay away from the areas the sound is coming from. While the latter is designed using a short wavelength of light rays to scare rats away in the night whenever they try to move around.
These devices might seem like a perfect way to repel rats, but the fact is that neither of these devices work. Rats are smart animals and can easily figure out if something poses a serious threat to them or not. Once they figure out that it doesn't, they will continue with their activities and withstand the effects caused by these devices.
Having shared this, you must consider other ways of getting rid of these rats in other to avoid wasting your hard-earned money. Neither of these devices will give you the results that you desire.
