Atlanta Mouse and Rat Control & Removal
|About Rats: The rats in Georgia are Roof Rats (rattus rattus).
They commonly enter homes and attics, and can be heard at night
scampering across the ceiling or up and down the walls. They are
common disease vectors, and as rodents, they pose a threat with
their chewing. Chewing on electrical wires can create a fire
hazard. The only way to solve a rat problem is by finding and
sealing all points of entry shut. Never use poison for rat
control! Only creates a bigger problem!
Rats and mice are common nuisance rodents in southeast Georgia. In Atlanta and Fulton County, rats have become a particularly common problem, as they have invaded many
homes in the area.

Atlanta Rat Control Emails:
I am looking for help in removing a (we hope?!) wood rat from my back yard. I can't tell if you do removal from OUTSIDE houses, or not, from your website. Here's my story. We moved into our new house in July (Atlanta area) and had a very large woodpile taken away. (The former owners called it "seasoned" wood ... but it was rotten and filled with several rat nests!) I've seen one brown rat, whom we have affectionately named "Harvey" - and have never seen more than one, at least not at any given time and he's the same size, etc., so I honestly think it may just be one, at least one that "lives" in our yard. We see him around dusk, and occasionally out under the bird feeders at night. I have also seen a few droppings on my back deck, and he jumped from the railing one recent evening (back deck) to a shrub next the deck. The dogs went crazy but didn't get him. Now that the weather is cooler, I fear he may try to move to a warmer environment... like our house?? We also have a wooden shed in the back yard that the rat (and no doubt other critters) may go under. I had it sealed, and look occasionally for droppings, but have seen non INSIDE the shed, where I also keep bird seed - prior to having the holes sealed, it had been eaten, so I think I've successfully kept it out (for now). We now have a second dog who is part terrier, and she can actually get UNDER that shed, so I'm also worried about the pets and the potential for diseases from the rat or its droppings. It also spends time under our back deck since the dogs go under there a lot - same concern re its droppings, etc. I have put out a rat trap (just a large mouse trap) a few times the past few weeks, but nothing. It was tripped once when I placed it on the top of the fence. I'm hoping you can help. Please let me know what you think.
Can your Atlanta rat removal and trapping help us? -thanks.
Hi, I was inquiring on your rates for mice extermination. I live in an older 3 family in
Lawrenceville GA and we normally get just one mouse every 6 months. However, recently there has been a problem and 9 have been caught in the past few weeks. I can’t seem to trap any in my apartment or the basement, but one of the other apartments has caught many. But I did see one yesterday in my apartment so I wanted to look into what it would cost to have the house treated. Best Regards, Kristen
There is no easy way to go about this. But I'd like to do so anonymously. It has now taken impact on my health! I have mites biting me. A person
I've been hanging out with has literally 30 rats. Free roaming in her house... I've never been in her house, no one is allowed in the house. But I have seen pictures of the animals. And I have been introduced to at least 6-8 of them. She calls the home a rat sanctuary. Is there such thing allowed by law?! This seems very extreme, and I know if it's impacting my health as of recent, it's definitely impacting her neighborhood and her health. What can anyone do about this?
I need Atlanta rat control services. I am an extremely clean person, and have picked up something from her serious overload of critters. -bugged
Do you do "mouse proofing" of houses? We have always had a few mice come in, and 2 yrs ago had flying squirrels (we hired a pest control company that trapped them all and sealed the entry), but wonder if anyone offers the service of going over the entire house from top to bottom to seal up, and if so, what is a ballpark price? We have a house (LR/KIT/2 BR/2Bath) not large, plus a garage with a 2nd story guest room on it.
