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.
Tulsa Rat Control Tip of The Week
Is It Common For Rats To Die During The Winter?
Nature gave rodents characteristics to survive different times of the year. A very useful feature in rats when winter is coming is being more aggressive to make sure they obtain greater amounts of food.
These animals will eat a portion of their food but will save the other part in their burrows. Among the most common provisions are pet food, dead animals, paper, plastic, fabric, and seeds.
If Rodents Do Not Find Shelter And Food, They Will Not Survive Winter
Rats have the capacity to generate extra energy through different activities that help them to keep their core temperature. However, eventually, this mechanism is harmful since it can cause inflammation in their muscles and stress for generating that amount of heat.
During summer, these rodents at 4 months old have already had their first litter of pups. Throughout their lives, they can reproduce at least 10 times. When a population is exterminated, this can regenerate in a short period. However, during winter, their reproductive capacities slow down, so if a population is exterminated, it may not be regenerated.
It is important to remember that these rodents easily adapt to any warm place in your home. They can invade the majority of places that surround you and move in the dark. Although you do not see it, your house might be infested with dozens of rodents.
Each rodent has an extra store of energy during the winter that will increase their need to feed. They will also shelter and organize in colonies with a very specific hierarchy.
With winter arrival, you must be watchful. One of the best options is to find a specialist to guide you with the most effective ways to avoid unwanted guests.
