Rat Removal

If you have baby rats in your home or on your property, the best way to remove them is to call a professional pest control company. Rat removal can be dangerous and tricky, and it’s best to leave it to the experts. However, if you’re up for the challenge, there are a few things you can do to try to get rid of baby rats yourself.

The most important thing is to seal off any access points that the rats may be using to get into your home or property. You can do this by caulking up any cracks or holes in your walls, floors, and ceilings, and by installing door sweeps and window screens.

You can also try to bait the rats into a trap. There are a variety of different rat traps available, but the most effective ones are the snap traps, which kill the rats instantly. Be sure to place the traps in areas where you’ve seen evidence of rat activity, and always use caution when handling the traps or the dead rats.

Finally, you can try to scare the rats away by using deterrents such as ammonia or pepper spray. However, these methods are often less effective than traps or exclusion measures.If you have any questions about how to identify or remove baby rats, please contact a professional pest control company.

How Big Are Baby Rats Compared to Mice?

The size of baby rat can vary depending on the age and breed of the rat, but they typically range from 2 to 4 inches in length. Baby mice, on the other hand, are usually only about 1 to 3 inch long. So, baby rats are generally larger than baby mice.

In addition, baby rats have much larger ears and eyes than baby mice. Their ears are about the size of a human thumb, while their eyes are about the size of a nickel. Baby mice have much smaller ears and eyes.

Finally, baby rats are typically much more vocal than baby mice. They make high-pitched squeaks and chirps, while baby mice are generally quite quiet. So, if you hear a lot of high-pitched squeaking, it’s likely that you’re dealing with baby rats. If you only hear occasional squeaks, it’s more likely that you’re dealing with baby mice.

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.
