Coachella Valley Rat Control


Rats are attracted to our homes in search of food, water, and shelter. They are easily confused with mice, but there are some important differences. Most obvious is that rats are significantly larger than mice with a bulkier shape. Most rats will be from 9-11 inches long with tails that measure another 7-9 inches.

In Coachella Valley, you will most often see two different types of rats: the roof rat and Norway rat. Norway rats are familiar with most people. These rats are occasionally called brown or sewer rats and can be found in large cities. Norway rats have a large body, small ears, and a pink tail. If they make their way into your California home, they will likely remain in the basement or foundations.

On the other hand, roof rats are also called black rats and are more often found in country areas. These dark colors rats have long scaly tails and large ears. They are great climbers and enjoy warm climates like those found in Coachella Valley. You will find them in your home in the attic, walls, or ceiling.

Even if you have rats in your home, you will probably not ever see the actual rodent. Most likely you will find their sign. If you have large droppings, dirt or grease marks on walls, or chewed up furniture, you likely have a rat problem.

Finding rat sign means that you should call a rat exterminator, like Bug Guys Pest Control, immediately. Because rats reproduce so quickly, just one in your home could cause a rat problem.


If you think you have rats in your Coachella Valley home, you need to call in a professional rat control specialist immediately. It is important not to let a rat infestation take hold on your property. Rats can carry a number of different diseases, including leptospirosis, which affects the liver and kidneys, and salmonellosis, which can lead to cramping and diarrhea. In addition, many people are allergic to rat hair, droppings, and/or dander.

In addition to the health problems they can cause, rats are a nuisance. They eat human food and the items that they do not eat are spoiled when they come into contact with rat feces or fur. Also, a rat infestation can damage the structural integrity of a home. They gnaw and burrow through a number of different materials, including cinder blocks, concrete and aluminum siding. Finally, when rats nest in your home and its walls, they can leave behind a foul odor that is upsetting to many homeowners.
