Los Angeles Rat Removal

My name is David, and I work in Orlando, but I've spent years training dozens of wildlife pros, and getting to know hundreds of them throughout the country. If you need a rat removal company in Los Angeles, CA, I recommend Animal Trapping and Removal. I believe that this company knows what I know about rat control, so give them a call at 213-233-9495.



Los Angeles County has a documented rodent problem, which is not uncommon in many parts of California. If you need to get rid of rats in the attic or a building in Los Angeles, you don't want to hire a pest control company or exterminator, you want a wildlife control specialist to do the rodent removal work correctly. Call Animal Trapping and Removal at 213-233-9495, and describe your rat or mouse issue, and he will be able to give you a quote and schedule a same-day or next day inspection to solve the problem.

I asked Animal Trapping and Removal to describe their service range, and they said, "We operate in the city of Los Angeles, including the the following areas: Encino, Van Nuys, Sherman Oaks, Studio City, Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica, Hollywood, and Beverly Hills." As a licensed and insured wildlife company in California, Animal Trapping and Removal is fully qualified to handle rodent removal problems, far more effectively than most Los Angeles pest control companies, and never with the use of poison. To find out about the specific terms, and to schedule and appointment, just call 213-233-9495.

Los Angeles County, Los Angeles Rat Control Situation: Hi David, I’m in southern California. I have at least one rat in my ceiling, maybe two or more. I've read your website and really appreciate the great insight you're providing. Based on your advice, I've caught 3 rats around the outside my house (over the last 2 months), trimmed trees back (3 days ago), and plugged all the access holes I could identify (3 weeks ago).

Yet I still have at least one rat in my attic. Though I've place several snap traps (baited with peanut butter and bird seed) in the attic, I get no nibbles. I also cannot find any evidence of their paths. I've moved the trap several time with no success. From inside the house, I hear them in sections of the attic (about 3:00 am) that are completely inaccessible to me (because of firewalls.)

So I hired a pest extermination company. For $275 they put some poison bait stations outside, and three snap traps in the attic that are baited with a beef jerkey substance. The traps are near the attic access panel - not near the rat noise activity. The guy's reply was that the scent would lure them. He also reviewed my hole-plugging and said it was fine. He didn't get onto my roof. It's been three days and I check the snap traps in the morning and around dusk each night.

My questions are:
1. Is it safe to assume that the rat(s) sleep in my house during the day and at night they are coming and going outside? Does this mean I've missed an access point?

2. Considering the inaccessibility, is it common to drill a hole in the ceiling (like a 4" hole for recessed lighting) to place traps in the attic for those inaccessible places? If I drill a hole, then I can stick a camera up there and take pictures to look for evidence, place the traps, monitor them, etc. But then I've got a hole to deal with.

3. Is it worth parking myself on the roof and patiently waiting to see where the rats are coming and going?

4. Have I given the beef jerkey snap-traps enough time to do their thing? Any other advice? Thanks for your help!
