Our Proven Step-by-Step Rat Removal System

Rats bring with them so many diseases and gross habits, and they can wreak havoc on your home. Rodent control is not something to let go by the wayside—you need to contact a professional rat removal company right away if you suspect you have an infestation.

Here at Omega Animal Removal in Dallas, we are experts in both rat removal and rodent control, among other things. We have been in the rodent control industry for many years and we are proud to be one of the most trusted rodent control companies in the greater Dallas area. We know rodents and we are experts at rat removal, and we are here to help you. Here’s a breakdown and overview of our trusted step-by-step rat removal process.

Step 1: Trapping & Removal

We start by sealing off entry points into and out of your home, essentially trapping the rats. We know it sounds horrible to force the rats to stay in your Dallas home, but if they have a way to get food from their “regular” food source, they typically won’t take the bait that we set for them. So once they realize they have nowhere else to go, we are able to trap them with our live cages and snapping rat traps. We may also install rodent excluder valves, which allow the rats to leave the home but not get back in.

Step 2: Full Home Exclusion

The next step, and perhaps the most important, when it comes to rat removal is sealing off every single entry point into your home. This includes an incredibly thorough investigation by our Dallas rodent control specialists. They will explore prior entry points on both the ground level and the roof, and they will also look for potential entry points that rats may try to utilize in the future and completely secure them.

Step 3: Decontamination & Restoration

Once we know the rat removal is complete and has been effective, you need to have your attic decontaminated, both for cleanliness and future rodent control. Rats are nasty creatures, and you need to clean up their mess before it gets worse. Insulation quickly absorbs rat waste, making the smell horrific, and they can chew or claw holes in air ducts and other areas that may cause further issues down the line. Dallas rat removal absolutely must include this step to reduce the pheromones and smells left behind that can attract more rats in the future.

Step 4: Outside Population Control

Although we know that our indoor rat removal is incredibly effective, rats will continue to live outdoors for as long as the world exists, and we want to reduce their ability or desire to even come near your Dallas home or property again. We utilize bait stations around the perimeter of your home to kill any rats that try to invade your space.
