Rat Removal by Oregon Insect and Rodent Control

Rat Removal in SE Portland

Rats in the Attic

Rats often find their way into your attic through damaged eaves and vent openings, and once they have gained access, they can be difficult to remove. 

Rats are nocturnal and sleep during the day, searching for food at night and returning quickly to the attic. Professional-grade traps are often the fastest way to kill them instantly.

Rats in the Garage

Often, rodents take advantage of the clutter in your garage for concealment. Remember to store any dog food, bird seed, and fertilizers in a  tightly sealed container. If you can slide your finger under or around your garage door, it is accessible to rodents.

Rat Pest Control

If there is no source of food, rats will move on. However, rats may still be close if you still smell a stale earthy smell. Rats are known for digging extensive tunnels and burrowing around your home or business.

FAQs About Rat Control in SE Portland

Are Rats Dangerous?

Rats can be dangerous creatures to humans due to the diseases they carry. Some diseases spread by rats are:

  • Hantavirus
  • Rat-Bite Fever
  • Leptospirosis
  • Monkeypox
How Do Rats Get Into Your House?

Rats are able to compress their bodies to fit into very small holes and other spaces around pipes and cables in your home. They’ve also been known to chew through wood and siding to get into a space.

Some rats are also great climbers and will access your home or business with the help of nearby trees.

I think There May Be Rats in my Yard, Is it Okay To Leave Them Alone?

If you’ve seen rats in your yard, there’s likely a food source nearby, such as a vegetable garden. While it may seem innocent to leave those outdoor critters alone, it’s important to remove them. Once they make a home and find a place to burrow, their population can grow quickly, and they may try to move into your home.

Will Rats Bite?

While you won’t really see rats seeking people out just to bite them, they will typically bite if you handle them or they feel threatened. Those bites are not only painful but can also be dangerous due to the bacteria rats carry. We recommend calling in the experts at OIRC for your rat removal needs.
