Springfield Rat Removal and Rodent Control

The best rat removal company in Springfield, MA 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 Springfield 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

Hampden County, Springfield Rat Control Situation:

Hi David, Saw your site on the internet. Most informative. My concern is as follows: My wife regularly puts out a tray of bread crums on the outside (rear of house) path for the wildbirds. To day at 2.30pm while at the kitchen window she saw a 'rat' about 8-11 inches long (and as fat as was big) feeding off the breadtray then running into a cavity in an adjoining wall & repeated this a number of times. The rat after its last feed then ran down towards the rear of the garden which adjoins some other gardens and disappeared. I purchased rat poison from our local store and placed it in a covered runway at where the rat disappeared. I would appreciate your views / advice on any of this.

Hello my name is Linda and I have a problem, you are so kind to offer advice through email. I am a single middle aged woman and have just purchased my first very small home in Springfield MA. I live just barely from paycheck to paycheck or I would call a pest control so I am looking for a way to do it myself....uugh! If that is possible. Anyway the problem is I am hearing scratching in one place above my infrared heater that apparently used to be a fireplace but has been closed off under the mantle and the gas heater was hung. It has been going on for a few weeks and I hit the wall to make it stop. However, today I began to hear the scratching and then after hitting the wall I heard scratching on the wall across the room, when I hit that place I heard the running through the wall. It has calmed down now but I know this is not good. Do you have any suggestions that will not be to expensive or something that I myself may can do. Thank you for any advice you may have!!

Springfield Rat Control Tip of The Week


How Far And High Can A Rat Jump?
Jumping is a major part of many animals' survival instincts including rats. But in the case of these small rodents, they have a special way of using this particular survival instinct to their best advantage. One of the most common rats around, which is the brown rat, is known to be able to jump over four feet horizontally or in a downward slope and leap vertically to about 77 centimeters without hurting itself. This clearly shows how high rats can jump and how well they can suspend themselves in the air.
The jumping performance of rats depends mainly on their species because some rats are big while others have lighter bodies which tend to support agile movements. For instance, black rats with lean bodies are known to be able to leap over five feet. While brown rats with large body frames find it quite difficult to leap but do well at jumping downwards.
Another reason why some rats jump better than others is mainly because of their better survival instincts and hunting abilities. Rats in the wild are better at jumping than those in the suburban and urban areas. Therefore, you shouldn't expect the rats in your home to jump or leap that high.
Rats are naturally silent animals and will prefer to move around unnoticed. But in some cases, they make use of their jumping skills. One of the special cases in which they use their jumping skills is when they see a possible threat or a predator. They often use this to propel their speed and get away as soon as they can. Their speed and swift body movements are one of the ways they can stay alive and avoid been eaten by a predator.
