Miami-Dade County, Miami Rat Control Situation:
I have rats and more of them now. I paid an animal control company alot of money, called them back multiple times and still had problems so i finally gave up even though they had a "lifetime garantee". I am going to look carefully at who i get help from as thousands of dollars on my budget is sorely missed. So Why do all these other places that you recommend have the same pictures and ads/ how are you all connected? Valerie
I recommend companies that I have spoken to personally. What company did you hire? If they gave you a guarantee, they should honor it.
Hello, Approx 5 years ago, I moved into a 20+ yr old, 3 level condo with finished basement. Shortly after moving in, I came home to find a dead mole lying in living room (main level). I also used to own a cat, whom I'm sure spent the day playing with the mole before it met its maker. That was the one & only rodent I have seen since living here - however - every winter, and in the same location of my basement wall, I hear scratching & gnawing. It comes & goes. I'm guessing it is probably a mole. The annoying sound is coming from near the baseboard and I'm on a concrete slab. I have sheetrock walls. Will it eventually dig its way through my wall? I reluctantly purchased a RID-X plug-in and that's not working. Any suggestions? Valerie
I'm not sure what animal is causing that scratching. Rats and mice tend to try to break in during cold weather.
Miami Rat Control Tip of The Week
How Can I Get A Rat Out Of My Car?
Clean Up Your Car:
When a rat no longer has access to the food inside your car it will no longer have a good place to nest, sleep, or find food. Rats always nest close by to where their food source is and if you have a large amount of garbage in your car or items that can be fed upon, they're much more likely to stick around.
Trim Back Foliage From Your Car:
When you notice branches that overhang your car it's possible that you can have problems with a number of uninvited guests. Trimming back the items around your car can be a crucial way that you can prevent pests like rats from having a direct line to get into the vehicle.
Close Up Your Car:
Make sure that you are closing up your car. If you have a window that is open, a sunroof that opens, or a door that doesn't quite close, a rat can make their way in quite quickly and easily. A rat only needs around half an inch to get into a space and even though it may not seem like there is that much room, a rat can make it into the area easily.
Remove Moisture And Damp Clothing From Your Vehicle:
If you have paper, damp clothing, or other items across your vehicle, they need to be removed quickly. Damp clothing can be an ongoing problem when it comes to attracting rats and keeping them in your car.
Set Down Some Traps:
A quick set trap that you place in your car in the evening or a metal pedal trap can be a great way to manage a rat problem in your car. Making sure that you can trap the rat in your vehicle can be crucial to building a better method of keeping rats out of your vehicle.
