All of the rat control services Peachtree company offers are completely humane. We utilize safe rat control methods in all animal trapping, and then we release the captured wildlife in a new location where they can continue to thrive.

There are two rat species that are closely associated with man and his dwellings, the Roof Rat and the Norway Rat. Both rats are considered Commensal rodents in that there are no wild populations of these rats, only populations associated with humans.

Roof rats are very good climbers and can be found in the upper portions of structures while the Norway rat is an excellent digger and can be found in burrows around and in the lower parts of structures. They both feed on a wide variety of food items, but poor sanitation around dumpsters is a contributing factor to these rats being found near structures.

Roof rats are smaller than the typical Norway rat. Their size allows them to fit into the smallest openings, easily gaining entrance to any home. Often found nesting in the upper levels of homes, hence the name Roof rat, these animals can cause unprecedented damage to the structure of your home, including your attic.

With the growing population of the large, semi-aquatic river rats, otherwise known as nutria rats, homes around the community are frequently falling victim to the damage and inconvenience of these rodents. Good sanitation and exclusion repairs are the key to keeping these rodents from entering structures.

Rat can pose a safety and health risk to you and your family. As carriers of different diseases, they can transfer these infections through their urine and feces, or through direct contamination of your stored food. Even fleas that have bitten infected rat could transmit the disease to a human or a pet.
