Rat Removal in Newmarket
How We Do Rat Removal in Newmarket
At Icon Pest we ensure thorough rat removal in Newmarket. We inspect your home or business as well as the surrounding area. Once access points for these pests have been identified, we seal all holes, cracks or voids with strong metal screens or glue.
For the next step, we believe in a humane, eco-friendly approach. Some companies, or DIY homeowners use poison to rid their space of rats. Aside from the danger this can pose to small children or pets, ultimately this often creates more problems down the road as the rats die in hard to reach places and you don’t see them. This results in a horrible stench, possible staining and more work, sometimes even extra professional help.
Instead, we install traps with bait to lure the rats for removal. We then humanely dispose of any captured rats. Your home will be rat-free before we leave the property, but we do suggest repeating rat removal in Newmarket every six months to ensure no new entry points have occurred as rats are always looking for ways inside warm, food-filled places.

The Cost of Improper Rat Removal in Newmarket
The cost of rat removal in Newmarket is minimal compared to the damage a rat infestation can cause, especially with a little bit of time. There are three ways rats cause damage:
Rat feces and urine can contain a number of infectious diseases and viruses harmful to humans or your beloved pets. People can become infected when they eat food that has been contaminated by the rats, or touch rat urine or feces or come in contact with their nesting materials and then touch their eyes, nose or mouth. These droppings can remain infections for around a week and can even cause allergic reactions in some people.
Furthermore, once dry, the fecal matter and any diseases or viruses it’s carrying can even be breathed in, one reason it is particularly harmful if your infestation is in your ventilation system.
With enough time, rat urine can build up and cause what will appear to be water damage in your walls or ceiling.
Rats teeth are so strong that they can cut through materials like wood, plastic, aluminum, concrete and even steel. This means nothing in your home is safe from their destruction. They will chew on weatherstripping, vent covers, wires, and structural beams. Just imagine the damage that can be done if they chew through a water pipe to make way for their nest. They will also chew on stored items in your home, causing the need to replace them.
Rats have been known to chew through live wires, causing short circuits or even worse, sparking house fires. An estimated 20-25 percent of fires from unknown origin are caused by rodents.
The holes they create can even be used by other pests, further worsening your infestation problem.
Rats use their claws to dig up insulation and other materials for their nests. Rats will scratch at furniture or other fabrics, causing extensive damage to your belongings. You may even find claw markings on your walls. Using their claws they can climb walls and other areas to further spread disease and fecal matter. Rats can also spread disease by scratching your skin.
Keep your family, your home, and your pets safe by calling Icon Pest for your rat removal in Newmarket.
