How do you know if you have rats in your home? Well listen closely, sometime the house makes noises. Listen carefully for the sounds it makes. When you are hearing

  • Creaking
  • Shifting
  • Knocking
  • Banging

  • Grinding

This may be other noises going on around the house and are not signs of rats or rodents. No rats make sounds like:

You hear the noises above, that is not your home, those are rodents. And you would want them eradicated from your property immediately! They reproduce rapidly and can damage your home faster than you could blink an eye. Typical places where rodents slip through are:

  • Openings where the A/C line enters the wall
  • Gable Vents

  • Louver Vents
  • Tree limbs near roofs
  • Gaps under the garage door
  • Doggy doors
  • Metal flashings around roof vents
