At night, do you hear what sounds like animals running through your Clearwater, Florida, attic, or scratching in your walls? Although rats and mice are active all four seasons, as temperatures decrease, rodent activity increases. Now is the time to prepare. Being a rodent exterminator can be difficult work that requires industry knowledge and experience.
With 40 years of experience, we know what to look for and how to approach your individual situation. To achieve rat control, Soles Exterminating follows a 4-step process. Each step is as critical as the next.
Before the rat removal begins, we must first determine where the rodents are entering the structure. During the inspection, we will search for common access points and weak spots. At most, rats only need a hole the size of a quarter to get into your home; if they can squeeze their head through, they can squeeze the rest of their body through.
Once the access points are identified, the potential points of entry need to be closed. Our team will close most holes, but for large repairs, the homeowner will need to contact a professional specializing in home repair.
Inconspicuous and secured traps are set within your home to catch and trap any rodents that find a way inside the structure. We will continue to return until we are both confident the problem is solved.
After a thorough inspection of the exterior, weighted bait stations are strategically positioned to cut down on the surrounding rat population. These stations are then monitored and re-baited on a routine basis by one of our trained technicians.
