At Rid-A-Critter, we make a science out of pest rat control.
Most rat exterminators kill rats by setting out rat poison. We don't. With the exception of a few commercial accounts where exterior bait stations are required by law or industry standards, we don't use rodenticides to kill rats. Rat poisons are unnecessary and potentially harmful.
What we do is remove existing rats from your home or building non-chemically using various types of traps, and then seal your home or building to keep rats out. Our organic approach to rat extermination is safer and more environmentally friendly than using poisons.
Non-chemical rat control is also more permanent. Without rodent exclusion, rat control becomes a never-ending battle because new rats move in to replace the old rats. You'll develop a lifetime relationship with your exterminator, who will show up every month to set out more poison, but never permanently eliminate your rat problem.
That's not how we do rat control. We practice non-chemical rat control that is consistent with Integrated Pest Management (IPM) standards, and emphasizes rat elimination using trapping, habitat modification, and rodent exclusion.
Trapping and removing rats from your home or business without using poisons means reduced risk to humans, livestock, and pets; as well as less risk of rats dying inside your house or business and stinking it up. It's the smartest and most-permanent way to solve a rat problem.
There are a very few situations which require the selective and judicious use of rodenticides (rat poisons), even in the context of an IPM program. For example:
These are exceptions, however. We complete the overwhelming majority of commercial rat control jobs, and all residential rat control jobs, without using any poisons at all.
