Rat Control

Rat Control

Need the help of experienced rat exterminators? Are you worried about a rat or rodent infestation in your home? Rats and mice carry disease and can damage your home and destroy your property. They’re among the most common pests in the Portland and Vancouver area and also one of the most difficult to eradicate. To protect your home and family, you need to stay one step ahead of rodent infestations.

Thankfully, EcoCare Pest Control can solve your problem.


Our Approach to Rat and Mice Control & Extermination

1. Inspection & Analysis

Before applying any rodent control treatments or deploying traps, our experienced exterminators will start with a thorough inspection of your Portland or Vancouver area home. We’ll inspect the foundation and exterior of your home for small cracks and crevices that rats or mice can use to enter. Then, we’ll look inside your home (including the attic and crawl space) for rodent nests and infestations.

We’ll explain our findings to you and recommend a treatment plan that will actually work.

2. Exclusion

The key to control for any rodents in your home is exclusion– that is to say “rat-proofing” your home. Adult rats can squeeze through an opening as small as ½”, and mice even less. Even the smallest gaps must be sealed to keep them out of your home. We’ll pay special attention to openings around pipes, wires, crawlspace and attic vent screens, dryer vents, roof adjoinments and more (places other exterminators may overlook).

3. Eco-Friendly Rat Extermination

Our exterminators rarely use rat poison on the interior of your home. The use of poisonous bait can cause rats to die inside an inaccessible interior wall, leading to additional pest infestations and horrible odors in your home. Instead, we normally use powerful rat traps to efficiently and humanely dispatch these rodents in your home.

Our eco-friendly approach to rat control is safe for both people and pets. You can stay in your home while we work!

Inspect. Exclude. Exterminate. When done properly by the experienced Portland and Vancouver exterminators at EcoCare Pest Control, eliminating a rat or rodent problem really is that simple!

Conducive conditions include greenbelts, marshy wetlands, neighborhood sewer problems, compost piles, feeding stations for chickens, squirrels and other wildlife. As a result, you may be well-advised to have a regular rodent maintenance prevention program.
