Reno Rat Removal and Rodent Control

The best rat removal company in Reno, NV 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 Reno 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

Which is easier to trap- mice or rats?

These are very confusing animals. They look the same and the only major distinction is that one is big while the other is very small. They are enemies; one will hunt down the other and destroy it.

How do you tell you are dealing with a mouse or a rat?

Rats are medium-sized rodents that are classified to be having a long and thin tail while a mouse is a small sized (sparrow-sized) rodent that also has a long but thin tail. Rats are different from the mice in several areas. They have genetic differences, morphological differences, growth differences, and anatomical differences. All this will help us know the real rodent and the ease of catching them.

Genetic differences

It is proven that the rats have 22 chromosomes but the house mice have 20 chromosomes. The genes of a rat have some counterparts while that of a rat has a genome.

Morphological differences

In general the rats are much stronger, larger and heavier than the house mice. The body parts of the rats are much developed than those of the mice.

Growth differences

The mice will generally take a shorter period of growth than the rats. Rats will generally take longer to develop than the mice. Rats' gestation takes an average of 24 days while the mice take 20 day.

Anatomical differences

Rats have six nipples while the mice only have a pair of five.

Which are easier to trap?

Without knowing what you are dealing with, it might be difficult to hold/capture the rodent. Now that we have looked the differences, we can now determine which is hard to trap.

Rats are very hard to trap believe it or not. This comes because of the fact that the mice are very curious to know about new things while the rats are cautious of the new things they find their way.

Therefore, the rats will tend to avoid the new things and therefore not be trapped easily. Mice go for it and get caught in the process.

Therefore, you need to unset the traps in the paths of the rats and place them in unusual places. For mice, you can just set the trap in the path and they will get caught. Therefore, rats are very hard to trap due to their curiousness.

Finally

Before embarking in any trapping, you need to first of all understand the kind of rodent you are dealing with. Then afterwards decide on the method of trapping to use.

Reno Rat Control Tip of The Week


Are Rats Smart Animals?

Rats can be trained:
In studies on rats, it's been very easy to train these animals. Scientists have worked with rats to help teach them how to get through mazes, play fetch, train them to dismantle complex items to get a reward, and more.

Rats stick together:
Rats have high levels of emotional intelligence and they often communicate well with one another to warn each other of threats. In a borough of rats, each will work together to make sure that everyone can stay safe. With communications through their squeaks and noises as well as through pheromones it's possible for rats to continually relay information about the surrounding environment and work together to survive.

They have been shown to have personalities:
In observed behavior some rats are considered to be social, others are entertaining and some are fun-loving wanting to play with objects they find like toys. Each rat can have its own tendencies and display their own levels of intelligence.

Rats are social animals:
Rats live in groups and this makes them very social animals. Even though rats typically sleep 12-15 hours a day, they are social during the time that they are awake.

They can recognize each other and come when called:
Rats can be trained to recognize names, they can come when called and they can often tell more about rats and their behavior by watching them. Rats display recognition that goes far beyond what the average animal conveys.

Rats can smell and find their way into many spaces:
Rats have the power to make their way into many spaces. They are often some of the perfect creatures for making their way into your plumbing and they regularly travel through cracks and areas across the home to find food. They are tenacious creatures and they can be considered very smart when finding food.
