Hamilton County, Chattanooga Rat Control Situation:
Hi David, I hope this email finds you doing well. I am really hoping you can help me... We have a dead rat in our attic. My husband works from home, and when he walked into the den (next to our bedroom) he smelled the odor. Because he works from home, he'll be smelling this odor until it goes away. I keep calling several numbers but I don't get someone on the other end and I haven't received any call backs. Is there anyone you can recommend in Chattanooga TN??? Please help! Any suggestion are welcome. Any way we can disguise the odor in the meantime or perhaps make it a bit more tolerable given my husband works from there? Many thanks in advance!
We purchased a new 2014 Ford Edge Limited with all the bells and whistles about 4 months ago. My with drives like a road warrior as she just had the 20000 mile checkup completed about two weeks ago and no rats. Tuesday morning she started the car and all the lights and warning lights stayed on so she took it to the Ford dealer in Temple, Texas where she was working. The service tech opened the hood and said they would take it back and check. When the mechanic started moving stuff out came a Hugh rat about 8" long (including tail). The damage was extensive to wiring harnesses. He told my wife they get about 4 of the per month on the new cars now! Apparently some idiot tree hugger decided to use "Soy" based wiring instead of rubber or poly as insulation in all the new cars! Rats love it! He said the rats was probably only there a few days and maybe only one night ! $1200 to fix this damage but if the rats show back up it could continue to cost more. The insurance we have covers this damage with a $250 deductible. My question is how do we prevent this from happening again? This is apparently a big problem on all new cars made in the USA. Feeling lost without a solution.
Chattanooga Rat Control Tip of The Week
How Can I Get Rid Of Rats Outside My House?
Having rats outside your house disturbing your peace is indeed a big deal. Apart from being a nuisance outside your house by creating burrows in your yard or lawn, it's just a matter of time before they find their way into your home. This simply means getting rid of the rats outside your house is as important as getting rid of those in your house.
Have you been looking for the best way to do this in order to keep your environment free from rats? Right here, we will be taking you through some of the most effective and humane ways to get rid of the rats outside your house.
The use of traps in getting rid of rats is a method many people are quite familiar with. To use this method, all you have to do is to buy a trap from a store, bait it, and set them around the places where the rats frequent the most. Before setting this trap, make sure your pets are locked up in a compartment or restricted from moving around your yard to avoid injuring your pets instead of the rats.
2. Smoke Bombs
If the rats have successfully created numerous burrows around your house, using smoke bombs is the best way to get rid of them. To use this particular removal method, all you have to do is release the smoke bombs into all of their burrows. It is very effective, but you need to avoid using it on burrows that are close to trees and other flammable structures in order to avoid fire hazards.
3. Use Dry Ice
This particular removal method is the best option if you are in an urban area. Dry ice is a solid that releases carbon dioxide when dropped into the burrows of rats. When the dry ice is released, the carbon dioxide anesthetizes the rats and kills them. This particular method is very quick and humane.
