Dallas Rat Removal vs Dallas Rodent Control?

Knowing the difference in Dallas rodent control and Dallas rat removal is really the question. Sometimes you need one and not the other and sometimes you only need one. It is best to first have a Dallas rat removal service performed. Upon completion then continue with a Dallas rodent control service.

What is a Dallas Rodent Control Service?

A Dallas rodent control service is your local pest control service. They can put rodent bait boxes surrounding the house or structure. Pest control services use a rat poison in each box and must be monitored every month.

A wildlife removal service can put out rat boxes with rat poison if they have a pest control license. If the wildlife removal service does not have a pest control license they can use rat traps inside the bait boxes. Each trap should be monitored monthly but may require more visits to remove and reset traps.

Dallas rodent control should not be the first course of action with a rat infestation. Pest control companies do exactly what their name says, CONTROL. Control methods may kill the rats present but many things can occur when poisoning rats.

Here is a list of situations why you DO NOT want to have rat control service initially…

  • Poisoned rats die in walls and attics and cannot be found. Rats may die in an enclosed area. Often these enclosed areas are impossible to access without paying an absorbent amount of money. Demo can be extensive to get to a 3 inch area in an attic corner or wall.
  • Dead rotting rat carcuss’s on property. I’ve seen rotting dead rats in trees, in the yard, in the bushes, in the gutters, and even by front door.
  • Poison in house, attic, and in the garage.
  • Once all the rats that are present are poisoned and no more activity is present homeowners finish with proper rat proofing. Pest control services generally do not rat proof. Read about rat proofing later in this article.
  • Cleanup is not generally provided by pest control services doing Dallas rodent control. Any feces left in the attic is potentially dangerous. The CDC says rats directly transmit to humans Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome, Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome, Lassa Fever, Leptospirosis, LMC, Onsk Hemorrhagic Fever, Plague, Rat-bite Fever, Salmonellosis, South American Arenaviruses, and Tularemia. Yeah, not cleaning can truly be harmful. Diseases indirectly transmitted by rodents are Babesiosis, Colorado Tick Fever, Cutaneous Leishmaniasis, La Crosse Encephalitis, Lyme Disease, Murine Typhus, Powassen Virus, Scrub Typus, Rickettsialpox, Relaspsing Fever, Rocky Mountian Spotted Fever, Syvatic Typhus, and West Nile Virus. Yeah, not cleaning can truly be harmful.

    CDC Recommends How to Prevent Rodent Infestations

    The CDC suggests to prevent rodent infestations you should…

  • Seal up! Seal up entries on the structure the rodents are invading to prevent future infestations.
  • Trap up! Trap up all existing rodents in and around the home or structure.
  • Clean up! Avoid illness by never avoiding any precautions that need to be taken to prevent illness.

    How Much Does a Dallas Rat Removal Cost?

    Dallas Rat Removal cost can vary from a couple hundred dollars to thousands of dollars. Why to wide range of dollars. It all comes down to how long the rats have been there and to how many rats are there. One rat typically is does not cause very much damage or leave much feces and urine. However, 50 rats left in an attic for a long period of time will be very expensive.

    Usually people notice noises coming from the attic after a family of rats have been there for about 3 months. So usually around 2-8 rats are present. 2-8 rats do enough damage to leave a pretty good amount of feces and urine soaked insulation. This cost an average of about $1000-$2000 for a full Dallas Rat Removal service. How many entries are created by the rats and how much insulation is contaminated is the determining factor.
