Humane rat removalCommon first reactions to learning of an infestation of rats in your home can range from disgust to the overwhelming desire to pack up all your belongings and move. However, after unpacking your bags and reflecting on the situation, you may have a more reasonable and empathetic response to your uninvited guest. Perhaps you want them gone, but not necessarily terminated. At Critter Control® of Tampa, we understand that all lives are precious, even the life of a rat. That’s why we practice humane ways to get rid of rats through our CritterSafe® program.

Effective CritterSafe® Solutions

Our CritterSafe® process begins with a thorough home inspection during which our qualified technician identifies how the rats were able to enter your home. Common points of entry include:

  • Garage doors
  • Ventilation ducts
  • Holes in the walls and floors
  • Cracks in the foundation
  • Underground pipes
  • Gutters
  • Roof corners
  • Chimneys

Humane Removal Practices

Our technician will first attempt the use of non-lethal methods to safely remove the rats from your property. Such CritterSafe® techniques include the use of live catch traps and off-site release. While we are determined to minimize harm, oftentimes an infestation warrants extermination. In such cases, we use humane, eco-friendly sprays with non-toxic ingredients that are not harmful to pets and children.

Permanent Exclusion and Restoration

After the removal of all rats, we seal off every potential access point into your home with one-way doors to keep the rodents from returning. After exclusion, our technicians will repair any damage caused by your infestation. Restoration ranges from replacing chewed up drywall and insulation to cleaning up rodent droppings.

Professional Rat Control

While rats can be a serious and costly nuisance, their destructive behavior doesn’t have to result in extermination. At Critter Control® of Tampa, we understand that rats are just displaced wild animals trying to survive. If you suspect you have a rat infestation in your home or around your property, our expert technicians are committed to using humane measures to permanently rid you of rats.
