Scranton Rat Removal and Rodent Control

The best rat removal company in Scranton, 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 Scranton 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

Attic Rat Cost

Lackawanna County, Scranton Rat Control Situation:

Hello, I've seen your website and wanted to thank you for supplying such helpful information. Are you located in Wilkes Barre? Is so, do you ever accept jobs in Scranton? Scranton is about 1.5 hours north of Allentown. Even if you don't accept jobs out of your home area, I wondered if you would give me some information about cost and details as to what the service includes.I have rats in my attic. I have seen an entry place they use at the edge of my screened porch. Several months ago I also had some rats inside my house. Before I realized That I had a rat problem, I had the habit of leaving my sliding glass door open for the breeze. I believe the rats entered that way and/or via a ceiling vent in my laundry room that has been bent. I was able to get rid of the rats in the house but not the rats in the attic. I can hear them and I periodically see one or two when I go on my porch. That is how I know one of the places they are entering the attic. I will need these services: 1. Finding and sealing entry holes 2. Setting snap traps for any rats that are in the attic 3. Removal of dead rats caught in traps 4. Decontamination of attic areas where rats have been 5. Decontamination of the area of the house where I think they were hiding. I know it is not possible to give an exact quote without seeing the house/attic, but I do need a ball park figure for the services above because I am retired and live on a fixed income. I will need to know how much to budget for having the services done. Thanks in advance for the information.

I moved into an apartment complex a week and a half ago. A nice quiet one on the outside looking in. First issue were flies piling in one window so maintenance sealed the window. Then lizards under my sink in the bedroom. Now rats are using the restroom throughout the kitchen and living room. One hole was patched behind the toilet in my bedroom last week. I was awakened just now by the rat trying to chew through the patch. I'm exhausted by all of this. If maintenance patches all of the holes that I can find to point out then what happens to the living things in the wall? I signed a lease for 13 months, so I definitely don't want dead things in the walls while I'm here. I tried glue traps they won't walk on them. I just feel that being a new tenant yet to cook a meal here that this is a lot to deal with. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Scranton Rat Control Tip of The Week


Black Rat Biology
The black rat (Rates Rattus) has likewise been known as a ship rat, rooftop rat, and old English rat, among other names. It is a long-tailed rodent that is native to Asia. However, it is found in practically all parts of the world today. Black rats prefer hotter zones, however, are profoundly versatile, and will look for cover in natural (woods) and unnatural (homes and structures) areas. It is bigger and more aggressive than its brown-colored cousin, but is more vulnerable to cold and has a more constrained diet. Black rats are generally omnivores. They are a genuine threat to ranchers since they will eat a wide scope of farming harvests, seeds, and feed. A large population of black rats can decimate a field of crops, or contaminate a barn full of feed and hay.
A common black rat is 5.02-7.19 in long, including its tail, and weights 4.12 oz. when fully grown. Notwithstanding its name, the black rat is normally not black. Its coat is typically extremely dark brown. In the wild, black rats want to settle in burrows made using the ground litter (leaves, twigs, etc.) found on timberland floors. In urban settings, they like attics and upper floors of structures, making homes from discovered litter, destroyed paper, and insulation.
They are also tasty meals for coyotes, wild dogs, and other predator winged animals. These obtrusive pests are difficult to dispose of once they move in. Talk with your neighborhood experts on approaches to shield your home from being overrun. Keeping your yard free of clutter, yard debris, standing water, and trash will deter them. You should keep all garbage in fixed holders, and pick up outside pet food and feed. Routinely check your home and building for cracks and openings that would give black rats a path to your home. Black rats are keener on living in their normal habitat than in your home; however, they will consistently exploit food, water, and safe shelter.
