Richland County, Columbia Rat Control Situation:
David I recently cleaned up after a mouse along with disposing of the rat poison and i'd like to know how easily can a disease be contracted from their feces/ urine ? & can I be poisoned by breathing in the rat poison? I'm very concerned bc I have a very weak immune system and when I was cleaning out my cabinets everything was on my hands directly ' when I wasn't washing them ' then a cloud of feces And rat posion went up n my face so thank you for the information and help. And do you know if decon pellets will cause mice to dry up , not smell and virtually turn to powder after dying?
Came across your website whilst trying to find a solution to a rat problem in my house. We have rats coming into the house, we don't know how they are getting in, will a rat come into your house, up your guttering and under the tiles? also, would a rat eat threw a felted flat roof, as we have put a tiled roof over our flat roof, which leaves an area underneath where rats could travel along. That is the only way the rats could be getting into the house.
Hi David, I found your page about rats traped in the wall. for exactly a week now we have a rat (I assume cause it is loud) or mouse trapped in the bedroom wall. It is always up at night scratching the wall inside the same wall. We currently rent our house and they sent pest control. All they did is set up traps around the house and in the attic. They said that there are tunnels going through that wall but it is really hard to see or get to it ?! I asked them if they can throw poison down those tunnels but i dont think they did. They said that they will not cut a whole in the wall especially because it is not a drywall (it is the house wall) and that it has to die like that. I am so terrified and cant sleep here anymore. I am afraid of them chewing through the wall while im asleep. What do you suggest I should do? How long does it take for them to die or chew through the wall? HELP!

Tips To Get Rid Of Rats In The Attic
It's normal for you to have that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach when you keep hearing that scurrying sound coming from your attic because of the indecent activities of rats. To put an end to this weird feeling, you need to get rid of the rats living in your attic.
Have you been wanting to do this but you don't know how to go about it? Right here, we will be sharing some tips on how to get rid of rats in the attic. With the following tips, you will be able to do as you please and keep your attic free from rats.
When it comes to getting rid of rats in your attic, the first thing you need to do is to inspect your house in order for you to know exactly how the rats got into your attic. Being a very flexible animal with an ability to sneak around and pass through openings as small as a quarter of an inch, rats can enter into your attic through different openings. What this implies is that you need to inspect your attic properly to know how they got in.
The second step you need to take is to inspect your attic to know the extent to which the rats have damaged your attic. Rats in the attic are capable of chewing your wires and tearing the insulation in the roofing for their nests.
After inspecting the attic, the next thing you need to do is seal up all the entry holes that you were able to find while inspecting the attic. This should be done with durable materials that rats can't chew. Materials like this include steel screens and metal.
Lastly, you need to trap or kill the rats using either a snap trap or a one-way exclusion funnel. Do not use rat poisons to get rid of the rats in your attic. It will only create more environmental problems instead of reducing them.
