    Frequently Asked Questions

    How do I get rid of rats and rodents in my house?

    Rats and rodents are not some of those pests you can easily remove on your own. Often if there is one there are many more and others will follow unless the entry points are sealed. You can try to limit their return by securing any food sources such as trash cans and pet food but unless you identify and seal up the point of entry they are almost certain to return.  Contact the professional rat and rodent removal specialists at Papa Squirrel for a free phone consultation on how to handle your rat problem today.

    What kind of damage can rat and rodents do to my house?

    Rats are master damagers. They can damage wooden beams, joists, chew plastic pipes, and even metal ones, in some cases. Rats can easily chew through most household items such as paper, clothing, foodstuff. They can also chew on some of the important structural components of the home.

    Rats can chew plastic coatings and electrical wiring putting your home at risk of short circuits and fire hazards. Along with the risk of diseases, you’ll understand that leaving rats and rodents unchecked in your home can be highly consequential.

    How fast do rats and rodents multiply?

    Rats and rodents breed faster than most other pests so there is a great risk that they’ll multiply exponentially if left unchecked within your home.

    A female rat delivers an average of six litters annually with each litter consisting anywhere from 5 to 12 rat pups per litter. New rat pups reach sexual maturation at just nine weeks. So, two rats can multiply to as many as 1,250 rats in under one year!

    How long does it take to get rid of rats and rodents from my house?

    It all depends on the removal method selected and the severity of the infestation. Most will take anywhere from a few days to a week but can take up to several weeks in severe cases.

A thorough inspection of the entire house will be conducted to identify where the rats may be entering followed by sealing up those entry points preventing any further infestations.

    Do rats and rodents carry diseases?

    Rats and rodents carry diverse diseases with varying levels of severity. These diseases can be transferred to humans when they invade food sources within the home. Some are also left in their droppings and urines which can be infectious when their nesting is moved.
