Have rats invaded your New York property? Rats in New York are a problem that The Bug Stops Here can most certainly fix. By using efficient pest control methods, our exterminator team can obliterate your rat invasion, while also teaching you how to prevent the pesky creature from returning.
Identification is a key aspect of our pest control methods. When our exterminator team is preparing to exterminate a rat infestation, we immediately try to identify the creature. If the rodent is 10 to 12 inches in length, grayish black color, and weighs an average of 1 pound, we can identify the rodent to be a Norway rat. Norway Rats are commonly found throughout the United States and are usually what we find in homes and businesses.
How do rats gain entry into my home or business? In cooler weather, rats often seek warmer shelter and new food storages. This is the time when they search for ways to enter your home or business. Since rats are intelligent creatures, they usually can gain entry through holes around soffit vents, around cables entering the building, through holes in gable vent screens, and through turbine and box vents on roofs. When an exterminator professional arrives at your New York home, we search in areas where you have stacked firewood, stones and bricks, and piles of leaves or other debris. Most of the time, we can locate several rats in those areas if you have an infestation.
When an exterminator team arrives at your home or business, they will show you how to prevent further rat infestations. The first step for pest control is to eliminate any harborage, since it attracts rats. The second step is to seal as many holes and cracks you can.
