Rodents – Rats & Mice Exterminators

Serving Georgia & Tennessee

Georgia and Tennessee are hotbeds for rat infestations; the Atlanta metro area is consistently ranked in the top 15 most rat-infested cities in the country. Conventional wisdom states that if you see a rat, there’s half a dozen more you don’t see; given how fast rats can multiply, all it takes is a small crack in your siding or an open trash can out back for your home or business to be completely infested.

What types of rats are in Georgia & Tennessee?

  • Roof rats

    Roof rats are excellent climbers, so when they invade homes and other buildings they can typically be found in the upper parts of them, like the attic. They can be found commonly living around riverbeds, wharfs, and dock areas. They often live in colonies, and once they scavenge a food source, they will return to it repeatedly in groups. Their bodies are long and thin; adults can be 6 to 8 inches in length, with their tails adding another 6 to 8 inches to their total length. Roof rats are typically black in color, speckled with brown hairs. Their underbellies can be white, gray or black in color.

  • Norway rats

    Norway rats, unlike roof rats, are not good climbers and therefore typically enter buildings through basements. Outdoors, they can be found living in fields, farmlands, and in woodpiles. They are larger than roof rats, with adults growing up to 7 to 9½ inches in length. They are also much heavier than roof rats. Norway rats are brown in color, with black hairs running throughout their fur. Their underbellies are usually grayish-white in color.

The Keys to Rodent Control in Georgia & Tennessee: Inspect, Interview, and Strategize

You’ll rarely find just one mouse or rat. Mice are mature enough to breed at age 5-8 weeks. In one year, female mice typically have eight litters, with 4-7 pups per litter. Rats can breed at age 8-12 weeks and have 4-6 litters of 8-12 pups per litter. Rodents need a constant source of food, water, and shelter in order to thrive, and all it takes is a small gap in your siding or underneath a door for them to begin nesting on your property.

To determine the scope of your rodent problem and propose the most effective solution, Allgood Pest Solutions technicians will conduct a thorough interview with you and inspect your property for areas where rodents are likely to nest and thrive. Our specialists will search for signs of a rodent infestation, and select the proper tools and techniques necessary to eliminate rodents from your property without endangering your family, employees, or the environment. Once target areas are established, our specialists will recommend the use of either rodent traps, baits, or a combination of the two.
