Tulsa County, Tulsa Rat Control Situation:
Hello: I hired a company called Guaranteed Rodent Removal here in Tulsa OK to help me get rid of a rodent infestation. However, I'm not sure they did the job correctly. I'm not comfortable climbing into the attic to see if they exterminated and disinfected correctly. The garage was a horrible infestation. I did not move any boxes or any garage clutter out until they came back to seal, deodorize and sanitize. My concern is how to know the attic is really handled correctly, and there is no damage due to chewing. They said none, but so uncomfortable going up there. Then, still have some shelves in garage to go through with boxes of Christmas items and I know there are droppings there. What was the point of deodorizing and sanitizing if the droppings are still there. How do I know the scent is out? Also, boxes in the attic with Christmas items they did not want to bring down. But, I think they have to so I can go through them. I'm so skiddish about going through all of it. Have read and read on the internet until I am worn out about what and how to do. I just have to have confidence everything was handled correctly. Can you help assist me?
I can hear a rat or mice chewing and running inside my bedroom wall at night. I rent and there is a unit on top of me as it's a duplex. I'm scared it going to get it? What do I do? How do I get it? Set traps outside? Any advice to get it to stop and kill it would be great.
Your article is excellent however find it confusing that some of the companies you recommend do not follow your advice. They use poison, don't remove the dead mice/rats from the attic. How can I find someone in the greater Tulsa area (not downtown Tulsa) that follows your methods? What does it cost to Bac-ASAP an attic or the whole house? 1250 square feet.
