Portland pest control

We Oregon's top experts in rodent control. We are not a typical Portland rat removal or pest control company. We don't treat rats or mice like insects, because they are not - they are mammals! You can't just use poison to get rid of them, like you can with insects. Unlike most Portland pest control, we focus on complete and permanent solutions. We don't just use poison every month. We solve your rodent problem forever, by following these steps:

  • Inspect the entire house, ground to roof, and the attic
  • Seal shut all entry areas, no matter how small, with steel
  • Set a dozen or more rat or mouse traps in the house and attic
  • Remove all rodents as they are caught and monitor for activity
  • Once there is no more activity and no more caught, we're done
  • When necessary, we clean rodent droppings, replace insulation, and repair chewed electric wires

Portland Rodent Removal Tip:

What are some home remedies to get rid of rats and keep them away?
Rats are highly invasive and hardy critters that are generally found around human environments. They like to live close to human environments and can be very destructive. When rats infest, they should be handled as soon as possible. Home remedies could be applied in getting rid of critters and getting them out for good. 

Home remedies work in different ways to make an area uncomfortable and unappealing to the critters. When trying to get rid of rats with home remedies, it is important to know which ones are effective. In this article, we highlight the different home remedies that work for getting rid of rats. 

Mothballs work for getting rid of rats as home remedies. They are readily available and can be applied in different indoor spaces. You can simply get and apply them in infested areas and susceptible areas. The critters particularly find the odor of mothballs unappealing and will leave an area that has a high concentration of the odor. 

We should mention that mothballs could be poisonous and should be applied with caution and kept from the reach of children and pets. Remember to keep the concentration safe and reapply regularly to keep the critters out for good. 

Cocoa powder and plaster of Paris
You can make a home remedy for getting rid of rats by mixing cocoa powder and plaster of Paris. Make the home remedy by mixing one teaspoon of cocoa powder and plaster of Paris. This remedy works by the cocoa powder attracting the critters that will then eat the mixture and feel suffocated and dehydrated. Apply the mixture along the trails of the rat infested areas as well as susceptible areas. 

Onions and garlic
These spices can be applied as home remedies for getting rid of rats. This is because rats do not find the smell of onions and garlic appealing. Get onions and garlic from the kitchen and drop cloves and bits in infested areas as well as areas that could be easily infested. 

Onions and garlic are perishable and should be applied accordingly. Remember to check them out and reapply as required.

rodent trapping Peppermint oil
Peppermint oil is a common and readily available home remedy for getting rid of rats and keeping them away. You can get peppermint oil from stores and apply it directly as a rat repellant. Apply peppermint oil by soaking cotton balls in it and placing the balls in infested areas. 

This is an excellent option for indoor spaces. The odor will drive the critters away from the area. Although it is appealing to humans, rats find the smell of peppermint oil very irritating. Remember to reapply when the odor reduces. 

Pepper flakes
Use hot pepper flakes and apply them around infested areas to get rid of rats. This works for mice, as well as rats. Simply sprinkle the flakes around corners and doorways. 

Ammonia is an effective home remedy for getting rid of rats from infested areas and preventing infestations. Apply ammonia by spraying it on cotton balls and placing the balls in infested areas. Ammonia works to keep rats away by suffocating them. The critters hate the smell of ammonia and will leave an area after some time. 

Owl feathers
Owl feathers work as a repellant for rats because owls are natural predators of rats. When rats see owl feathers, they assume that the owl is around and will be scared to hang around. Simply place the owl feathers in infested areas and places that could be infested. 

The home remedies highlighted above are readily available and can be easily applied to get rid of rats and keep them away for good.
