About Rats: The rats in Texas are Roof Rats (rattus rattus).
They commonly enter homes and attics, and can be heard at night
scampering across the ceiling or up and down the walls. They are
common disease vectors, and as rodents, they pose a threat with
their chewing. Chewing on electrical wires can create a fire
hazard. The only way to solve a rat problem is by finding and
sealing all points of entry shut. Never use poison for rat
control! Only creates a bigger problem!

Hi, We might have a rat or squirrel in our attic, it is definitely something nocturnal since it only makes noise at night. We live in a two-storey detached home in Plano. How much would it cost to assess and fix the problem?
I read your web site about mice and rats getting under roof tiles (barrel tiles). I have that very problem.
Rats have destroyed a section of tar paper under the tiles, have scratched through the shiplap board on the eaves, and have chewed through the roof plywood into the attic.
I hired a company here in Dallas. On the phone they explained that they can trap the mice or rats but they do not do any work related to preventing them from getting in. Your web site gave some good photos showing what you do. Is there someone here in the Dallas area that can do a similar job?
I started to cut up chicken wire and push it under the tiles. It is tedious work and doesn't seem strong enough to deter a really aggressive mouse or rat.
Hi, I’ve got a problem with rats in my apartment building. They come up from underneath my A/C closet (I think), crawl up the pipes and settle between floors – above my ceiling, below my upstairs neighbors’ floor.
From what I can tell, there is a mother rat and a litter of young – probably about 5 weeks old. There is no way a person can physically gain access to the area to remove the raccoons by hand, other than cutting
a large hole in the sheetrock. There is one licensed guy in Fort Worth (who supposedly does this sort of thing) the nationwide directory and he is a total slacker and completely unreliable. None of the other
pest control places in town will deal with trapping a raccoon, and my landlord made it very clear she doesn’t want to be bothered by this sort of thing.
What should I do? Any advice would be most appreciated.
Hi, I live in Plano TX and I have a neighbor who is trapping rats and then submerging them in a trash can full of water killing them. She has a hole in her attic where rats are getting in, so to try to
eliminate the problem she is trapping and killing them. I would like to know the correct way to remove the squirrels and if she has the right to kill them. Also, if you have a copy of any laws to this
effect. Please try to get back to me ASAP as her actions are very disgusting.
Hi David, Thank you so much for your very informative and helpful website. I'm still debating on whether or not I can tackle the problem myself. I'm not confident that the "rodent control specialist" that I met with will do the job as thoroughly as you say it must be done. He didn't want to inspect the roof because we don't have an attic, but I fear that there could be ways for them to get from the roof into the walls. His estimate for removing infested insulation is $3000 for the 1500 sq ft house AND the same to put back new insulation, which seems like robbery to me. The initial plugging of mostly perimeter, ground level holes near vents and pipes is $600 seems more in line with your guidelines. If I can do the clean up myself, then I can replace only the insulation that is truly contaminated with droppings, without overpaying for all of it to be done when that might not be necessary. I have one question that you did not address on your site: rat mites. My tenant showed me small red bites that she and her family have been getting lately even though there are no droppings or indication of rodents in the house itself (only in the crawl space under it.) Do you think that rat mites are the likely cause? Could mites be getting into the house? If so, is there a special anti-mite fumigant that should be used in the crawl space after the clean up and before any new insulation is put in? Can it be used in the house where kids live? I found your site only when I decided that I needed to be more informed before meeting with another company. I also emailed your suggested specialist, Animal Damage Control
in Dallas TX, but it looks like they may focus on "wilder" animals like skunks, raccoons etc., so we'll see what they say. Many thanks again for your time. I look forward to your response. Sandra
My response: I don't know anything about rat mites, but I've never seen or heard of them before, so I don't suspect that is the cause of the small red bites.
