Our Approach to Rat Control in Portland, OR
Inspection & Analysis
Before applying any rat pest 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.
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).
Our rat 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 pest 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, rat removal really is that simple!

Rodent Maintenance Program
- Spring and Summer – Rats become more active looking to reproduce so they search for opportunities to build new nests inside your home to care for their young and collect food.
- Fall and Winter – Rodents seek shelter in your home where it’s warm and dry to escape the harsh weather conditions.
Our Rodent Maintenance Program is designed to protect your home from rats and mice by:
- Placing bait stations on the exterior of your home by the fence line, shrubs, and other locations to intercept the rodents before they get to your home.
- Set up an inspection, maintenance, and rat removal schedule based on the observed activity around your home.
Frequently Asked Questions
Our experienced rat exterminators work throughout the Portland and Vancouver metro areas. We’re happy to come out to your home and offer you a free, no-obligation quote.
“How can I tell if there are rats or mice in my home?”
Rats and mice are nocturnal, meaning you’re more likely to experience signs of an infestation rather than the rodents themselves. Here’s what to look for in your home:
- Small piles of droppings
- Damage to food, especially packaged foods in your pantry or pet food in the garage
- Dark grease marks along walls caused by the rodents rubbing their oily fur as they travel
- Pets paying new attention to the walls or other areas where rats might be hiding
- Scurrying sounds inside the walls at night
