San Diego 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 San Diego, CA, I
recommend The Wildlife Specialist. I believe that this company knows what I know about
rat control, so give them a call at 858-257-3420.
San Diego 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 San Diego, 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 The Wildlife Specialist at 858-257-3420, 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.
The Wildlife Specialist - 858-257-3420
I asked The Wildlife Specialist to describe their service range, and they said, "We service all of San Diego County, including Coronado, National City, Chula Vista, Imperial Beach, Spring Valley, La Mesa, El Cajon, and more!"
As a licensed and insured wildlife company in California, The Wildlife Specialist is fully
qualified to handle rodent removal problems, far more effectively than
most San Diego pest control companies, and never with the use of poison. To
find out about the specific terms, and to schedule and appointment,
just call 858-257-3420.|
San Diego County, San Diego Rat Control Situation: Hi David, Is a UV blacklight still useful, exterior-wise, if it rains after the rodents leave their urine stains? I am in the process of performing exterior maintenance to better exclude my roof rats. 1) I have a 25 year old cedar shake roof in San Diego California with openings under each shake along the rake edge of the roof at the gable ends of my house. There's no drip edge, i.e. under the shakes I have roofing paper (now somewhat curled) that runs more or less up to and rests right atop the fascia board. Because I have skip sheathing, and since the cross section of a shake is a wedge that is up to one inch at the upper, thick end, this appears to create many huge entry points along the rake edges even though the sheathing is rabbeted into the fascia board. As a result, I'm thinking of getting a UV blacklight to use outside the house to sleuth for urine stains along the upper edge of the gable end shakes and fascia boards. My question is, how easily does the winter rain wash away the urine, rendering this a pointless exercise? 2) I noticed a new product called "rat-out gel" and was thinking of applying it along the rake edges mentioned above. Or, maybe I should just buy many rolls of X-Clude and use that instead. Or maybe both. Any comment? Thanks very much for your website, Doug
My response: First off, I do not have experience using UV lights to detect rat urine. But I do suspect that rain will severely limit the effectiveness of this approach. I have never heard of Rat-Out Gel or XClude, but I typically stick to physical barriers rather than repellent type devices. If your roof makes this impossible, you might have a tough time keeping the rats out.
