Rat Removal in Pickering
The Humane Approach to Rat Removal in Pickering
We value humane and eco-friendly treatment options for rat removal and do not recommend the use of poisons. Over time, the rats will ingest this poison and then die in areas you don’t see. This will eventually cause a foul smell in your home and possible staining, turning one problem into another.
At Icon Pest, we believe the ideal approach to rat removal in Pickering is through humane and eco-friendly approaches. We recommend hiring our professionals to strategically place baited traps throughout your home, business, or other areas of infestation.
We do not recommend the use of poisons. Not only can they be dangerous for children and pets, but it’s likely you won’t find the dead rats until they emit a foul odor. Even then it can be difficult to locate these sneaky pests. This can cause even more problems for you and further frustration.
It’s also imperative to seal all possible points of entry to prevent further infestation. To the untrained eye, these accesses can be difficult to find. But with the experts at Icon Pest, you can rest assured that your rat removal in Pickering will be done quickly, correctly, and at a fair price.
Signs You Need Rat Removal in Pickering
There are some common, telltale signs of rat infestation you can look for to know when to call Icon Pest for rat removal in Pickering. Some signs you can look for:
- Scratching or scurrying
It’s likely that the first sign you’ll notice is a sound. Rats are not quiet animals. Their claws make scratching noises and you’ll often hear the pitter patter of their feet scurrying around in your walls, ceilings, floors or in your cabinets, especially at night.
- Foul Odor
Rat urine has a distinct smell. It is often described as smelling like ammonia and is a pretty sure sign that you have an infestation, as the more rats, the more urine.
Rats tend to follow the same paths, leaving feces along the way. These droppings look like dark grains of rice and can be found anywhere they are traveling but you’ll often notice them in your kitchen first.
While looking for food and building their nests, rats will gnaw on a variety of materials in your home like papers, furniture, carpet, boxes, plastic items, just to name a few. But also be on the lookout for more extensive damage like chewed wiring, drywall, ceilings or other structural damage.
Call Icon Pest immediately if you notice any of these signs. We can come within 24 hours to assess your home or business and offer effective options for your rat removal in Pickering.
