Seasonal Alert: High activity pest
Hundreds of small mice infiltrate homes across the region on an annual basis. They are the most active animals during the winter period. In fact, mice, rats and field mice are more susceptible to invade your home in the winter. When the temperature goes down, rodents may have difficulty finding reliable food sources outside. During this time, they will seek heat, shelter and food in your home, away from the cold, rain and snow. If you encounter a problem with rats, please contact Capital Wildlife Control for immediate assistance. We are the animal control experts in the Ottawa-Gatineau region and rats removal is our specialty.
What Can We Do For You?
The rat rarely bites you but if he bit you it can transmit diseases such as plague (Pastereulla pestis), typhoid fever, tularemia ( Pasteurella tularensis), salmonellosis and trichinosis. Their life expectancy is less than 1 year, they usually have 5 to 6 litters of 10 babies per year.
|Capital Wildlife Control’s technicians have been specially trained to spot and identify entrance points of rats. These rodents can easily use cable or pipe holes to make nests, which can damage your property and create risks for your health. The strategic and systematic elimination of all rat is the least expensive and the most efficient method to solve an infestation problem. Making sure to block all possible access points is pertinent. Poisoning and trapping mice can do harm to humans and their pets.
