Most pest control companies use poison to kill rats. This method, on it's own, creates it's own set of problems. First, poison is indiscriminate. The EPA estimates that 10,000 children in the United States are injured by rat poison every year. Secondly, poisoned rats often die in inaccessible areas of your home like heating and A/C duct work and in between walls. That creates a "dead animal smell" that is difficult to locate and even harder to live with. Depending on the location and humidity levels it may become impossible to stay in the home until the carcasses are removed. Third, poison doesn't stop new rats from entering after the old ones are dead. A rat exterminator will show up month after month checking and refilling bait stations but never get rid of problem rats for good. And that's fine with the pest control company. it keeps them coming back and collecting a check from you every month.....FOREVER!
The only way to keep rats out is exclusion or "rat proofing" your home. Most pest control companies don't do that. It's not in their self interest.
Rat traps work well to get the infestation under control. They are a non-toxic method of rat control that is relatively inexpensive. Care must be taken to keep traps away from children and household pets. Many rat bait boxes have enclosed, locked areas within them to place 1 to 2 traps. The bait boxes themselves can be locked making them inaccessible to children and pets. This is the method that we employ in residential settings.
Jarrod's Affordable Wildlife Eviction is the fastest growing rat trapping and removal company in the southeast United States. There's a reason for that: We work hard to be.
There are some wildlife removal companies out there that use high tech cameras and thermal imagers to find where your rat problem is. It's a nice gimmick but it can cost you extra money. Those devices are expensive and the cost gets passed on to you.
At Jarrod's, we rely on decades of experience and know-how to get rid of rats and make sure they don't come back. There are no hidden costs and no surprise fees. Our "rat patrol" actually inspects every inch of your home to determine how and where the rats are getting in. Using evidence like droppings, nest locations and gnaw marks we lay out traps and repair and seal holes or gaps where the rats are entering.
After the rats have been removed we can deodorize and sanitize the areas with powerful disinfectants and insecticides to kill any residual parasites or microorganisms that the rats may have left behind. We also can do partial or full insulation removal and re-installation if necessary. Our expert wildlife techs will answer any questions you have at any point.
Commercial Rat Removal
There are some situations where using non toxic rat trapping methods are not practical. Generally speaking, commercial businesses don't have high risk situations like children and pets around. Getting rid of rats in commercial properties sometimes means using toxic rodenticides (rat poison). All our bait stations are enclosed and, due to their placement, pose no risk of accidental ingestion. We use toxic methods to eliminate rats in the following situations:
Rat prone places like sewers, storm drains and large public areas
Warehouses and loading docks that keep overhead doors open for long periods of time
Large outdoor rat infestations in agricultural areas like farms and livestock enclosures
Food Processing and Bottling Facilities
Stables and barns
All our bait stations are covered and tamper resistant so there is no risk of accidental ingestion when we place them in the above areas and types of facilities

Industrial Rat Removal
Industrial parks and factories have all the necessary conditions for rats to thrive. There is always food, water and a place to hide available. Not only that, but no one that works in these places is actively trying to remove them. A program using both bait and traps is usually the best method of getting rid of rats and is relatively inconspicuous. Your customers won't even know you have had a problem with rats and mice.

"Miles and Daniella came out as soon as I called them in a panic because I found snakes under our back porch. They were so professional and made me feel at ease once they removed them. They set up a trap just in case there were any more in the hole under the porch. I highly recommend using them for all of your pest and wildlife removal needs. It’s February and snakes are already out!"
