Portland rat control

We are experts in rat control, and are not your typical Portland, Oregon pest extermination company. We don't use poison, since it simply doesn't work, not to mention it causes rats a long, painful death! Poison doesn't kill right away, which means the poisoned rats almost never die where the poison was originally placed, and finding the rodent carcasses means it would take even longer to rid your house of rats. So instead of poison, we use humane and permanent rat control methods such as snap traps, or exclusion and relocation. We completely solve your rat problem by taking these steps:

  • Inspect the entire property, ground to roof, and the attic
  • Seal all entry areas shut, no matter how small, with steel - rats can get in through the tiniest of holes!
  • Set a dozen or more traps in the house and around your property
  • Remove all rats as they are caught and monitor for activity
  • Once there is no more activity and no more rats caught, we're done
  • When necessary, we remove feces, replace insulation, and repair chewed wires

Portland rat removal tip of the month: Mothballs or peppermint oil for rats - It does not matter what the winning pick is between mothballs or peppermint oil; the outcome will still be the same. Peppermint oil is the herbalist's substitute for mothballs, both products supposedly running mice and other pests out of a home from smell alone. It is not true that rodents will scurry away from bad odors. At the most, an animal that does not like a particular smell will just avoid the immediate area around the odorant. Think about your own aversions to smells. Most smells are tolerable once you are a certain distance away. For mothballs or peppermint oil to be potent enough to cleanse a house of pests, no humans would be able to live there, either. Despite the logistics of the theory being poor, you need to take into consideration where animals like mice and rats like to live. Rodents can live in the worst, most deplorable conditions, not giving a second though to the fumes and odors that comes from piles of refuse. These creatures have adapted to a life of scavenging. To think that peppermint oil or mothballs would be more offensive than piles of human waste found in a sewer system is foolish. Not all animals will share the aversions to aromas that humans have exhibited. Each species is able to cope with different levels of smell, and the effects of odor vary between individuals. If you really want to get rid of your rodent issue, seek the means to trap and remove the animals from your property.
