Rats are a formidable a foe. They will do just about anything to survive. In this case a new client of ours was having a rat infestation that previous pest control companies could not solve. Since rats were inside the structure using a rodenticide was not an option as they could die inside & cause an awful smell. For this reason we used mechanical traps to crash the problem. The rats were inside wall, ceiling, & floor voids and there was evidence of chewed wires. With the risk of fire high we needed to crash the population fast. After the initial visit we returned three days later to find a trail of blood to a wall void with just a snap trap. It looks like the rat could not pull the trap off him so he chewed his paws off. This is the challenge we are faced with rats, they have a stronger will to survive, even more so than humans. We offer humane control of nuisance pests but with commensal rodents (rats & mice deriving benefits from man) we are forced to use whatever means possible to eliminate the serious health & safety risk they pose to our quality of life.
