First thing the homeowner needed to do was to find out if a Rat Infestation was present. The suspicion arose due to the scratching and squeaking noises heard late at night and seemed to be in the attic. There were a couple of rats seen scattering in the guest room upstairs. Feces and urine were found in the food pantry along with chewed up marks on different boxes of food. The Dad decided enough is enough and started the search for contacting a Seattle Rodent Pest Control Service to exterminate the rat infestation and provide Attic/Crawlspace Cleanup.
At this point there had been rat sightings and other evidence found throughout the home. The Seattle Rodent Pest Control service investigation begun by locating the rat nests, urine and feces and even found dead rats in the attic and crawlspace. All other rooms in home were also checked for rodent infestation. The pest control technician found that the insulation was damaged due to droppings and pee which creates a horrible smell and germs were airborne throughout the entire home. Because the rat infestation being as widespread as it was an outdoors search for the rodents outside was completed. Areas checked were garages sheds and other areas used for storage. More importantly the perimeter of the home was checked for any and all openings such as, holes, cracks and crevices that were giving the rodents access to the home.
Having a rat problem can and did cause damage when the Rat patrol made itself comfortable in the home and outside structures. There are many ways these rodent pests can gain entry into a home or building. Good thing to remember is that rats can squeeze through holes the size of a quarter. The damages incurred required the removal of insulation and the installation of new. The attic and crawlspace needed to be thoroughly cleaned. The Rats and Mice left stains and unpleasant odors and thus required the need to deodorize areas affected. All entry points around the outside were checked for entry points and all holes, cracks and crevices were sealed to prevent further access to the home. All provided by the professional pest control technician.
