Rats can be bold and aggressive if threatened. When they bite, they spread viruses in their saliva. And they can pose other threats to your health. Exposure to rat feces and urine transmits infectious disease when the fumes are inhaled, and if they contaminate your food.

Signs of Rat Infestations

In the Carolinas, there are two common species of rats?Norway (or brown) rats, and Roof (or black) rats. Adults of both species measure 10 inches in length. Signs of rats infestation include:

  • Seeing live or dead rats inside or outside your home
  • Scratching noises in your attic or walls
  • The sound of animals running across your roof
  • Holes in your walls
  • Droppings

Rat Treatment Information

Most rodent issues can be resolved with regular treatments. For more serious infestations, we can perform monthly, or bi-monthly services.

  • Your technician will perform a thorough inspection of your house for suspected and current activity. We will focus on normal rodent-activity areas, such as your home’s exterior, attic, basement, kitchen, crawl space and other locations.

  • Your Bug Ivey specialist will create a customized treatment plan for the type and amount of activity you’re experiencing. We use a combination of bait stations, traps and exclusion methods to treat rodents.

  • Monitoring is a key to obtaining control over rodents in and around your home. During follow-up visits, your technician will check bait stations, monitor traps and inspect for rodent entry points into your home.

  • After your treatment has been completed we will guarantee your home free from rodents for 30 days from the date of your  treatment. If you have any issues during your warranty period, let us know and we will send a technician at no cost to you.
