Oak Forest Rat Removal and Rodent Control

The best rat removal company in Oak Forest, IL 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 Oak Forest 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

Cook County, Oak Forest Rat Control Situation:

I saw your article about rats and you said to email with questions. We can hear rats in our walls and have seen some in other areas of the home. It is an older model mobile home that was previously rented and not taken care of well. We have tried to remodel but need to know if it is possible to solve this problem first or should we begin looking elsewhere.

Last night, I read your site and it is pretty good how to catch the mouse. I am scared to see or catch the mouse in the basement. I try to set up all sticky pad and snap trap with dry shrimps today. I hope it will be killed the mouse. Can you help me how to rid it of the basement? I don't know where the mouse came in the basement, how come? That is very grossed when the mouse runs around in the basement. Sometimes, I can't find it or it gone then later it comes back. WTF! (sighing)

I own a restaurant in south Chicago near Orland Park that is maintained, exterminated, clean etc.... As you describe it is the entry of the building that is allowing us to be infested. We are part of a building that is very old and I have had pest control, supposed rat exterminators come out and bill me and now my problem is worse than ever! I am in Orland Park and am asking before I lay out another grand if you can help guide me to selecting a company that will address my serious problem. I know the building has to be sealed so I know that is the first step. Any advice is so appreciated. I really liked your website for its information, as well.

Oak Forest Rat Control Tip of The Week

Non-lethal Ways To Get Rid Of Rats
If you are the type that considers rats as small cute-looking creatures, you might feel bad for wanting to kill them because they are causing a nuisance in your home. The fact is, your feelings do count. But at the same time, you can't afford to continue watching as these little creatures destroy your home and put your life at the risk of contracting diseases.
We understand how you feel, which is why we will be sharing non-lethal ways to get rid of the rats in your home. With this, you will be able to get rid of the rats without actually killing them.

1. Get A Cat
Cats and rats are natural enemies. If you have a cat in your home, rats will try as much as possible to do all they can to avoid your home. The sound and smell of the cat alone will trigger the sense of the rats and will make them stay as far away as they can. With this method, you will be able to get rid of the rats in your home without even having direct contact with them.

2. Trap And Release
This is another way to get rid of the rats in your home, the only issue with the use of this method is that cannot be used in a home where there are many rats. This is mainly because rats are smart and will end up figuring out that it's a trap after they see it capture one or two other rats. To trap and release a rat, all you need is a live trap and bait.
Also, you need to understand the fact that when you capture a rat and release it into another environment, its chances of survival are very slim.

3. Use Natural Rat Repellent
Just like other animals, rats are sensitive to some smells and they will do all they can to stay away from those areas. You can take advantage of this as well and use it to get rid of the rats in your home. A mixture of cayenne pepper and peppermint will help you get this done.
