Harrisburg Rat Removal and Rodent Control

The best rat removal company in Harrisburg, PA 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 Harrisburg 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

Dauphin County, Harrisburg Rat Control Situation:

David, I found your website very thorough and educational, especially when researching how to handle the rats in my walls/attic. I do have a question though. How do you install steel mesh barriers in the crawl space with the dirt? Won't they dig and try to get under the mesh? Unfortunately, I do not have a husband and need to try to resolve this issue myself so want to do it "right the first time". Any help you can give is appreciated.

Hi David, I found your website "Rats In The Attic" very interesting. I live in a 2-story house. My bedroom is on the second floor, and I get awaken many times at night by the sound of a rodent chewing in the ceiling, but there is no activity there during the day. I could not find any place the rodent could get in there, even from the attic. I liked your idea of setting a trap in the attic to lure this rodent from the ceiling space, and would like to get your advice. Do you have any suggestions on how I could figure out by the sound alone if the rodent is a mouse, a rat, or a squirrel - so I would set an appropriate trap? Please let me know the size of the trap and what bait should I use for this rodent. Thank you.

I have Rats in my Garage and have been using a Rat Bait plus I have a pest control company come out but the Rats do not like HIS bait but seems to be ok with the Home Depot products. What do you charge to take care' of these pasty rats? I just dumped my 2nd dead rat in the trash can for this week!

What if there is scratching at 8:30 in the morning as well as around almost 11 at night on inconsistent days? Is it most likely a rat? The scratching noises arent small mouse ones . I put the fireplace on ( which i just read not to do) and deetermined it isn't in the fireplace because the scratching continued after the fireplace was on for a couple minutes. What could this be ? And outside in our very small backyard... Where are some possible entry points? Would the entry point most likely be where the rat is scratching or if the scratching is in he back yard walls the rat could have come from all the way in the front if the house (should i be looking all around the exterior if he house?)

Harrisburg Rat Control Tip of The Week


What Attracts Rats To Your Property?
Being a homeowner, you definitely don't want rats to infest your home and make it their nesting place. If you are concerned about this, you need to know certain things that can attract rats to your property and do all you can to keep those things away from your property.
In order to help you prevent a rat infestation, right here we will be sharing all the things that are capable of attracting rats to your property. By knowing these, you will be able to keep your property safe from rats.

1. Food Substances
Unlike other household pests, rats are not picky eaters. They tend to eat all kinds of food, provided they are placed where they can easily access them. The moment a single rat gets to know that your house has an abundant supply of food, it will invite others and your property will soon become a nesting place for rats. To avoid this, the best thing you can do is store your food properly and dispose of leftovers when you no longer have plans to eat them.

2. Pet Waste And Trash
Just as mentioned earlier, rats will feed on anything they have access to and this includes your pet's food. When you have pet food around at all times, rats will find their way into your home.
This also applies to having trash around your property. When rats want to hunt for food, the first place they visit is trash cans because they feel that your leftovers might be disposed of there. The longer you keep trash in and around your property, the more likely rats will be attracted to your property.

3. Dripping Pipes
Rats are thirsty animals and are always in search of clean water to drink. If you have dripping pipes or sprinklers around your home, this will tend to attract rats to your property.
