Kent County, Grand Rapids Rat Control Situation:
My name in Nia, I have a horrible mouse and rat problem under my outside deck. I have called a local company and they put down bait traps. Every month they check them and all the bait is gone. I looked out the back window at night and see the mice ru Ning around from under deck into garage and along the sides of the house. I am soooooo scared one will get in the house. I hope it's not already. Please call me and direct me as to what I should do next. My husband acts as if he thinks it's not a big deal. Help me please.
Hi David, just been looking at your website. I have found a run into my compost bin and also in the 1/2 foot wide gravel soak away around my house this week. I obviously now need to get rid of the source of food, i.e. the compost bin and remove any shelter, so my mission is a good old tidy up in the back garden this weekend. However tonight i was kept awake by scratching in the house, gotta say freaked me out a little. I have already put poison down in a bait box this week which is already all gone!! So do i continue baiting or shall i trap them? Am i right in thinking that the poison will try them out so even if they die in the wall they wont smell or will they go seek water and hopefully die outside!!!! wishful thinking on my part i guess!! I just don't want stinking rats rotting in the walls! Anyways hope you can help, Kind regards Hayley in Grand Rapids
Grand Rapids Rat Control Tip of The Week
What Is The Cost Of Rat Removal?
Having rats in your home comes with the immediate need to get them removed if you don't want them to cause damage that you can't afford. And to remove them permanently, you have to get it done properly.
The first thing you need to do is hire skilled professionals. We have seen many homeowners choose pest control companies where they are asked to pay a sum monthly just to remove the rats in their homes without getting the results they desired.
You can't afford to make the same mistake. If you want to hire a professional to help remove the rats in your home, you need to choose a wildlife removal service. Apart from getting rid of the rats in your home, they will find and seal off all possible entry holes and prevent further reentry. With their services, you will be able to get it done once and for all.
There is no exact fixed cost for removal. The amount you will be paying depends on several factors. Ideally, if the rat problem you are having in your home is not a complex one, the total cost of removing the rat might run between $300 to $500.
The cost of a rat removal service depends on the part of the country you reside in, the number of rats that need to be removed, the number of service traps that will be needed to remove all the rats, the number of repairs that need to be done, and if cleanup is needed after removing the rats.
The initial cost you will have to pay might seem expensive but you need to understand the fact that it is worth it.
