See How We Perform Rat Control


An exterminator arrives to inspect your home. The aim is to find the entry holes and how severe the infestation is. To make sure the survey is thorough, special endoscope cameras are used for walls and hard-to-reach place.


The pest technician will seal all rodent-sized holes with durable materials and sealants. Then, traps with bait are placed strategically around your property. The traps are always in places where pets and children cannot reach them.


If you choose the full treatment option, you can request your Fantastic rat removal specialist to return to your property and re-examine it, within a period of 3 months after the initial treatment. If there's any ongoing rodent activity, then you get we treat again,


Lastly, the technician will offer you some great advice on how to protect your property from rats and other pesky rodents. You can request dead animal removal as well.
