New Orleans Rat Removal and Rodent Control

The best rat removal company in New Orleans, LA 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 New Orleans 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

Orleans Parish County, New Orleans Rat Control Situation:

Hi from New Orleans. I must say ure website is absolutley brilliant.Thank you for such a wealth of advise. I realise now that setting traps willy nilly doesn't work. I have caught a couple of mice over the past 6 weeks. But there is still something crawling around up there, and i CANNOT GET IT. Originally i'm sure it was mice as i caught 2/3 of them. But today i saw some rat droppings. I feel a bit spooked as i can hear this rodent on and off during the night. Sometimes right behind the wall at the head of the bed!! Have u ever heard of a cat used in an attic space (where i have a rat) to catch a rat? I have the cat, but maybe id have a problem with a lost cat in the attic if i put her up! What do you think? Thanks again for your greta website.

My response: You can try putting your cat up there, but it probably won't solve the rat problem. Inspect the house and find out how the rodents are getting inside. Seal up every single last entry/exit hole and gap with steel. Trap, properly trap on rat runways, ALL the rats, and remove them from the house.

I have been reading a lot of your website and am sure I can NOT do this myself. I am going to contact Trutech in Gadsden and hopefully can get them to come out and get rid of this problem. I read your price range and maybe they will let me pay a large amount down and monthly installments for the rest if it is much more than 500.00. My house is very very small so I hope that's a plus. Anyway I apologize for emailing you three times. I should have read further before contacting you. Thanks again! I forgot to mention that my attic is impossible to even look in. There is only a very small hole hat is supposed to be the attic and it is in my closet but I could not even get my head through ANSI am a small woman. Thanks

New Orleans Rat Control Tip of The Week

Why Glue Traps Are An Inhumane Option For Rats

Glue Traps Won't Kill An Animal:
A glue trap will not humanely kill an animal; the glue is not toxic in any way. A glue trap merely traps the animal in one place and ensures that over the course of several days the animals will die of dehydration, starvation, or eventually suffocation. Many animals end up removing their own skin and fur to get away. Some rats will even take off some of their limbs trying to get free and can be successful in doing so with glue traps.

They Can Be Harmful To Your Pets:
Getting a pet stuck in a glue trap can be just as damaging. If your pet happens to stumble across one of these traps they could end up with it stuck to their fur and the need for shaving or immediate medical care.

They Lead To Harmful Smells In Your Home:
Because the animal will likely die of suffocation this can often lead to the glue trap starting to smell depending on the area of your home that it is in. Rather than having harmful odors throughout your home, it would be wise for you to consider a different option that is much faster for killing a rat.

They Don't Remove The Problem:
Glue traps don't target nests and they don't take away the chance that rats could continue to breed and increase their numbers. Choosing a different type of trap could be a better option for targeting parents that can breed in the area.

They Don't Seal Up Other Areas Where Rats Could Get In:
A glue trap is a temporary solution and it will only work on the rats that you have inside your home. If rats find a different area to get into or they are able to burrow deeper, the glue trap will not stop them.

Rats Are Quite Intelligent:
If you have a glue trap that's in a regular spot, rats may soon start to avoid it over time. No matter how tempting the glue bait may seem, a rat may actively avoid a trap after it's been in an area for some time.
