Pittsburgh Rat Removal and Rodent Control

The best rat removal company in Pittsburgh, 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 Pittsburgh 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

Allegheny County, Pittsburgh Rat Control Situation:

Hello David, Thanks for a comprehensive excellent web site. My cat passed away a while ago and the rats moved in ! Never had a Rodent problem in the 18 years previously. Always had cats though. I am from Western Pittsburgh and my house is a 1950's open eves with that blow in insulation that's about 25years old. I have done my best to wire up all holes but a few still exist . Aside from boarding up the whole eve all way round which then restricts airflow in our hot summer. I have laid 15 traps to start with, a few small and a few large. Baited with peanut butter and pressed the peanut butter onto the tab so it's not just resting on there. I got 1. Now whatever is up there is licking of the peanut butter of the large and small traps ! Damm varments. I have set all traps rights to the edge off the lever. On firm surfaces like the rafters. Maybe it's the quality of the trap ? I may have to order some of your victor traps from the U.S. So my recent rebaiting happened yesterday and I checked today, yep a couple with half the peanut butter licked off. It's the fancy organic smooth peanut butter too. Appreciate any suggestion's David, apart from getting another Cat.

Pittsburgh Rat Control Tip of The Week


How Can I Scare A Rat Away From My Property?
Scaring off rats from your property can seem like a simple task, but you must not forget that these rodents can completely take over a territory they feel safe in; wherever they can get food and shelter, they will stay.
If you want to scare away all rats, you must fix the problem from its roots. This means making a complete inspection to evaluate which are the potential hiding places for them and how many rats there could be on your property. Once you have answers to these questions, you can pick the method that suits your situation the best.

How To Avoid The Presence Of Rats On Your Property?
While there are many reasons why a rat may decide to enter your home, the most common cause of this may be a lack of hygiene; not regularly doing deep cleaning in potentially exposed areas. Another reason these rodents may be attracted to your property is the presence of accumulated garbage or improper food packaging.

Natural Solutions To Keep Rats Away
There are many ways to scare rats away. You can use classic methods, placing rat traps and poison at specific points on your property, or hiring a pest extermination agency. Another option, -and the healthiest one for both the rats and your family-, is based on using natural remedies to scare off rodents.
  • Mint: It has a strong smell, ideal for scaring away rats. You can simply make a mint tea and use it to aromatize different areas of your house, specifically access points to the property.
  • Hot Sauce: Spreading hot sauce in some areas of your home could also keep rats away. However, you should be careful where you apply it in case you have pets or small children.
  • Onion: Placing containers filled with onion pieces in areas of your property can also be a good way to repel rats.
The rats' incredible sense of smell can be your best chance to scare them away from your property. Regardless of the option you choose, it is essential to maintain proper hygiene in every space in your home.
