Buffalo Rat Removal and Rodent Control

The best rat removal company in Buffalo, NY 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 Buffalo 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

Erie County, Buffalo Rat Control Situation:

I absolutely love your site. I recently cleaned my garage and found piles and piles of mouse poop and did exactly what you said not to do....poison. I also have a little guest house on the farm that has evidence of gnawing right into the foundation on a porch and of poop in the closets. I can also hear noises in the attic when over there at night. I feel like they are everywhere! I find the occasional poop in the house inside a drawer and then when I put out poison we find a dead one and until reading your sire we thought it was over for the moment. Now I am totally freaked out! My question is what size Victor traps for house mice and do you have a suggestion for ordering in bulk since I am working on multiple locations now. I do need to find someone handy to seal up entry points first. Where are you located and do you know anyone good in Maryland? If not I am prepared to roll up my sleeves and learn..... Thanks for your help.

I have house mice in my attic, garage and outdoors by potted plants. I have trapped and killed all in the garage but I still have them in the attic. I looked at your directory and there seems to be no one in las Vegas who specializes in this that you recommend. I have a pest control service but as you stated, they do not do a proper job. Can you recommend anyone to check to house an seal up entry points and eliminate the mice for good. Your response will be greatly appreciated. Regards, Marko

Buffalo Rat Control Tip of The Week

What Are Possible Diseases Rats Can Carry?
Apart from causing severe damage to the structure of houses, rats are major carriers of life-threatening diseases. This simply shows how important it is for you to remove them from your home and make sure they don't find their way back.
Disease transmission from rats to humans can occur through several routes. These include;
  • Human exposure to wastes of rats such as feces, saliva, nesting materials, and urine while handling or removing them from homes.
  • Bites from rats that are infected.
  • Unsafe handling of rats (touching of rats without wearing gloves) and eating food that is contaminated with rat feces, urine, or saliva.
Diseases can be transmitted from rats through any of the above means. This clearly shows that if you have rats running around your home, you are at a high risk of getting infected. The following are some of the possible diseases rats can carry.

1. Hantavirus
This particular disease is one of the most life-threatening diseases that rats carry. Currently, Hantavirus is yet to have a known cure, vaccine, or treatment. Some of the symptoms of this particular disease include abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, and nausea.

2. Salmonella
This particular disease is a bacterial infection carried in the digestive tracts of rats. When they pass feces, it usually contains a large proportion of this bacteria. If by mistake you consume any food substances that are contaminated with this bacteria, you might contract Salmonella. Some of the symptoms of this disease include diarrhea, vomiting, fever, chills, nausea, and abdominal cramps.

3. Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis Virus
This disease is another life-threatening disease that rats transmit to humans when there is contact. LCMV is capable of causing encephalitis and meningitis if not quickly managed at its early phase.

4. Rat-bite Fever
Unlike other types of diseases, rat-bite fever is only transmitted when a rat bites you. The bacteria of this disease is found in the saliva of rats. The symptoms of this infection include high fever, muscle pain, headaches, and skin rash.
