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
How Do Rats Use Pheromones To Communicate?
Rats communicate using releaser pheromones to send information to other rats that they are in their own territory. Rats often urinate in areas to send information that they are ready to nurse or that a specific area where their nest is located is their own. Rats use these releaser pheromones to claim territory and to make sure that other rats will stay away.
Primer pheromones are designed to be excreted during the peak of fertility and this is the type of pheromone that sends sexual signals to males in the area. These scents are released in order to attract males and to make sure that the female is going to mate during a time where she is more than likely to conceive.
Primer pheromones are some of the main types of communication tools used by rats and it's one of the most powerful ones that can be sensed in the area. These responses are triggered by the area of the brain called the Vomeronasal and this refers to the overall sense that an adult male gets of the pheromone.
These types of pheromones are designed to be useful for identifying something about the animals or about the area. Rats often use these to convey fear or to share information about an area. Certain species of rats can share information about a food source, safe space, and more with these types of pheromones. Most of the time informational pheromones are designed to identify the smell of other species and to warn other rats of dangers in the area.
Scientists are continuing to study rats to determine the total number of ways that they are able to communicate by pheromones alone.
