How To Identify A Rat Infestation

Appearance - Rats have red eyes, black or white fur, and shrieks. They are typically 6-10 inches long (depending on the type) with a hairless tail. Brown rats (also known as Norway rats) are slightly larger than roof rats, with a thicker body, smaller eyes, and a shorter snout than their black rat cousins.

Behavior - Rats tend to be bigger than mice or other rodents, often found in basements, garages, outside near garbage disposals and even scurrying around your home. They are nocturnal. Rats can fit into holes that are ½ inch or even smaller, so having any open holes or gaps in your home may be a way that rats are getting in. Rat droppings are pellet-like in appearance.They are dark colored and about ¾ inch long.

Why You Might Have Rats

Rats, like any other species, need a place to live and breed. Homes, garages, and apartments provide the perfect location for rats to keep safe and be able to eat, sleep and reproduce without disruption.

Holes in your foundation or walls that lead from a basement or outside are an opportunistic entrance for rats to find their new accommodations within your Rochester residence. Being able to fit in ½ inch or less spaces gives rats a leg up in entering your home, even if you have tried to fill in obvious holes and gaps in your walls and foundation.

Having rats does not mean you live in unhealthy conditions, but having food sources accessible could entice a rat to enter and begin living in your home. Professional rat control is recommended before one rat turns into a full blown rat infestation.

Reasons To Treat Your Rat Problem Immediately

Rats tend to scrounge through garbage for food, and this causes them to be carriers of many different bacteria and diseases. They also are known for being traditional carriers of fleas and ticks due to the conditions they tend to live in. Flea bites from rats can cause extreme allergic reactions and ticks can carry Lymes disease.

Beyond topical threats, the bacteria carried on rats can cause leptospirosis, which can affect the liver and kidneys, and salmonellosis, which produces cramping and diarrhea.

These threats and the rat droppings they will leave behind could cause you and your family to become very sick if a rat infestation is left untreated.

What to expect from our treatment


  • Target the Source
    First we identify and target the source of your Rat problem with our custom treatment.
  • Inside Treatment
    We then treat unfinished basements, garages, crawl spaces, trash areas, attics; wherever there is the possibility for a pest to enter your home or make residence, we will create a barrier to protect you. We deploy a variety of techniques depending on what works best for your situation.
  • Outside Treatment
    We create a protective barrier around your home using a granular base around the foundation. We then treat windows and doors, as well as under siding, to keep the pests out. We will also place a granular bait in your flower and mulch beds so that it is taken back to any potential nests, destroying them.
