Rat Control And Removal

Rats are a common pest for both homes and businesses. But, due to their size, are much more destructive and aggressive than mice. A common treatment for rats is poison, but this is neither effective nor a permanent solution. We here at Magic Touch Extermination and Wildlife Control guarantee that we will rid you of your problem permanently by checking every hole, crack, or possible entry point for rats to get in through. We will inspect every part of your house, and seal off every entrance to the home. If you need your rat infestation permanently addressed and live in New York City or the Long Island area, call Magic Touch Extermination and Wildlife Control today!

Why You Should Remove Rats

Rats are not only a nuisance, but they’re a costly and dangerous issue. They chew through wires, creating the potential for fire, and make their homes inside your walls. They chew anything near them, using what they find for their nests. Furthermore, rats can carry a wide range of illnesses with them. Rats can carry a wide range of diseases, including Leptospirosis, Lassa Fever, Salmonella, Rat-Bite Fever, and the Plague. Rats can cause damage that costs hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars to repair. Furthermore, rats are much more aggressive than mice. If backed into a corner, a rat is almost certainly going to lash out. This can be dangerous for pets and small children who find themselves in that unfortunate position.

How We Handle The Problem

The solution begins during the inspection, in which we will trace out every inch of the house and determine where the rats are entering and exiting. Once we figure this out, we place traps to ensure that every rat is killed in a quick and humane way. Poisons are not effective at killing all the rats and create a long and inhumane death for the rats. Once we ensure that all the rats are gone, we go about filling every crack and hole in the house with non-chewable steel to make sure that the rats have no way of getting back into the house. We make sure that every hole is filled, for rats will return if any are not filled.

Why Poison Doesn’t Work

Poison is a trick employed by pest control companies to keep you calling them. Even if most rats are killed, just a few rats are needed to begin the problem again. Furthermore, by not filling in the holes, rats will simply wander back into your house. Poison isn’t a humane method of extermination, either. In fact, it creates a lot of pain for the rats. We at Magic Touch Extermination and Animal Control ensure that all the methods used are humane and quick. Poison also leaves dead rats inside your walls and, when the bodies begin to rot, will leave a foul odor in your house- a smell that’s unbearable. Our methods are not only humane but don’t leave the rats inside the walls of the house.

Decontamination And Repair

Rats leave behind damage, droppings, and disease. We will clean the infested areas, repair the damage, and ensure that all signs of a rat infestation disappear with the rats. We want your home to be clean, tidy, and a place that doesn’t look infested. These are especially important for restaurants, hotels, and stores. By cleaning and repairing, we make your store or home look better than it did when we arrived. Along with a clean looking home or store, it will also be rat-free!

General Information

Pricing of removal depends on the location and severity of the infestation. For a ball-park price estimate, call us today. A more specific price range will be given during the inspection. We always make sure you understand what we plan on doing and include you throughout the whole process. Any questions you have will be expertly and honestly answered by our professional staff. We ensure that you are comfortable with the plan before we begin.
There are two notable species of rats in the United States, the Black Rat, and the Norway Rat. The Norway Rat prefers to stay on the ground, whereas the Black Rat prefers trees, attics, and high-rise buildings. Rats are omnivores and will, therefore, eat pretty much anything you put in front of them. Rats will live anywhere that provides them proper shelter, mainly making their nests out of shredded materials from around the house. Rats will use anything for their nests with no preference for any particular material. Rats can spread disease through droppings, contaminating food, and biting or scratching. Rats will, again, destroy just about everything in their sight. From electric wires to outdoor gardens.
