Sacramento Rat Removal Tip: How To Get Rats Out Of Your Walls
It has happened to the best of us and to many other unsuspecting people. They lounge around on the couch at night, perhaps enjoying their favorite show. Suddenly they begin to hear scurrying and scratching noises in the walls.
The first instinct is usually to ignore it. Maybe it will go away? Not likely. Unfortunately, there are probably rats in the walls and ignoring them will become painfully difficult. It will also lead to bigger problems.
At this point, you are at a crossroad. Do you attempt to solve the problem yourself or do you call a professional? It is certainly easier to call an experienced rat expert to get rats out of your walls, but you will have to reach into your pockets to pay for the service.
While you contemplate this very important decision, let's explore how the rats got into your walls to begin with. Obviously, they haven't always been there.
Rats most often enter homes through the roof tops. Other times they may find their way in from the basement, crawlspace or even around the soffits. They are typically scavenging for food or looking for a place to nest and reproduce.
Your house provides a great shelter that is free from common predators. It is warm and cozy with plenty of things to chew on. There is usually a water source near-by as well.
Most often, rats fall into walls from the attic as they scavenge for food. Depending on the texture, they may actually even crawl down the walls and get stuck. Rats often crawl along piping, wires and anything else they can grip.
Removing a rat from the wall cavity means you must first isolate the location. This is most often done by smell and sound. A little guesswork and the process of elimination helps too.
Once the wall containing the rat has been isolated, you must determine how you will contain the rat. This also depends largely on whether the creature is still living.
A gloved hand will need to cut a small hole near the bottom of the wall cavity. You will then need to either remove the dead carcass or coax the animal into a trap for relocation.
If the animal runs back and forth between the attic and the wall cavity, it may be necessary to place traps in the rat's traffic areas.
Once the animal(s) has been removed, you can begin the clean-up process and repair the wall. Just ensure that you have located and sealed off all entry points to prevent a re-infestation.
