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
City Subways And The Presence Of Rats
Rats, like pigeons, badgers, and foxes thrive in urban environments, even moving to these places. Cities are full of garbage dumps, abandoned lands, and sewers that can provide a cozy burrow for rats to live in and raise their families. Human beings have provided the perfect conditions for the well-being of this species.
Sewers And Rats
Sewers can provide everything needed for an exponential multiplication of rodents. The problem is that the more rats there are, the more they need food, so to get it they will be severely aggressive towards each other. This aggressiveness and the search for new food sources can cause serious damage to the city.
Rats Are The Real Infection
These rodents are known for carrying bacteria that cause infectious diseases leading humans to death. Something similar occurs with rats when they spread through sewers, subways, garbage dumps, and train tracks.
Rats survive thanks to the mountains of garbage in the city and play a vital role in reducing this waste. However, wiring or holes and infrastructure problems can be just some of the catastrophic consequences for the city's subway system.
Humans love junk food and in big cities, high-calorie garbage has given the rats that eat it the energy they need to grow exorbitantly even creating resistance to some rat poisons.
The well-being of citizens begins with professional pest control combined with a mind-set of not throwing garbage into the environment. Briefly, if there is neither food nor garbage, there are no rats. The fewer rats there are in places like the subway, the fewer rats will be able to reach homes. The more we take care of the city, the fewer health problems or economic damage there will be.
