Was referred to USS by my brother. Had an ant infestation that would get really bad every summer. Muzafar came out on short notice and treated my house. He was very cordial and knowledgeable. Got the job done at a fair price and haven’t seen an ant since. Will deff recommend and be using his services yearly to treat my house.

How do rodents enter your home?

Rats will first enter through whatever opening they can discover. They can fit through gaps in walls, between pipes, electrical lines, and other places because they can shrink their bodies to incredibly small sizes. Rats can squeeze underside, rear, and front doors that don’t reach the floor and under garage doors that don’t have bottomed sweeps.

Well, rats have sharp teeth and powerful jaws, which is something about them. They must chew and nibble on objects to keep their teeth in check because they are constantly growing. Rats can swim up pipes and enter homes or buildings through basement restrooms because they are excellent swimmers and breathers.

Certain rat species make great climbers. For example, roof rats received their name because they get onto rooftops, and enter attics and upper stories by gnawing through or pulling up shingles or roof tiles to gain entry.

What are the signs of rat’s infestation in the house?

Your home has multiple indications of rodent infestation. Among them are:

Rat droppings:

If you discover rat droppings near your house, this is a strong indication that you may have a rat infestation and will require professional assistance for rats control and removal.


Markings around the walls and low below are major signs. Rats tend to stay close to the walls when they explore a room since they are dirty. When they do this, the walls will have unclean smudge marks.


Well, noises comprise chewing sounds or scratching sounds made by rats as they dart throughout the house or between walls. Rats must continually gnaw on objects to prevent their teeth from becoming out of control. They will occasionally chew on wood and other materials, which may be heard plainly by people within homes or buildings.


If you come across heaps of fabric, newspaper, and insulation, you may be able to identify rat nests. Because rats are excellent at hiding, their nests may be concealed in walls, crawl spaces, basements, or attics.


Rats that have dug into gardens or lawns may leave noticeable holes in the ground. It’s advisable to consult rats removal professional if you notice any strange holes in your yard, as gophers and moles are among the other rodents that will do the same.

How can I get my home free of rats?

Rats accidentally enter your home and discover that food and shelter are readily available to them. This is why you have rats in your home. In general, rats seek locations to construct their nests, have convenient access to food, and rear their young.

Items include holes or apertures in external walls, openings beneath doors, entrances into crawl areas or basements, and windows without screens.

  1. Trees or plants bordering the side of your property will give rat’s easy access to the interior walls or internal areas within your home.
  2. Damage to your roof and easy access to attics.
  3. Lawns overgrown with debris, clutter, or wood.

It is hard to get rid of rats once they are in your house. Once rats have established nests within your home, you will likely require the services of a professional rats extermination specialist to eradicate them. Thus, even a small number of rats concealed in a crawlspace or attic can quickly multiply and start a new infestation.

Frequently asked questions - Rat control and removal

In addition to the well-known Hantavirus, leptospirosis, rat-bite fever, tularemia, salmonellosis, and lymphocytic choriomeningitis are among the illnesses that rats are known to transmit.

Small rodents like rats and mice typically do not carry the rabies virus. Though rabies in tiny rodents is uncommon, they pose a risk to human health from various sources, including their bites. Larger mammals, including raccoons, have been reported to have rabies.

Mice start building their winter nests in homes as early as October, reproducing in the early spring.

Rat removal will take about three weeks for a comparatively small infestation. This situation is where a few rats are running around, nothing too alarming. However, severe rats extermination may take up to three months.

One of the best and most humane ways to eliminate rats from your house is to use traps. Usually, pest treatment businesses employ live or snap traps, which can be baited with food to entice rodents inside. Poison baits are yet another well-liked method of controlling rats.
