Rat Removal

Behavior & Risk of Rats in Your Home

Rats and humans have coexisted for centuries, and having rats in your home isn’t necessarily a reflection of your home’s cleanliness. Many buildings in the area are affected by rat or other rodent infestations, and that’s where we come in. Metro Wildlife and Pest is proud to be your local leader for rat removal in the Charleston area, and our team can assist you in getting rid of these unwanted visitors. Rats are incredibly smart, resourceful, and great problem solvers. However, they can also cause damage to your home and put you at risk for flea and tick issues and rare diseases like hantavirus pneumonia. If your property is currently hosting rats, it’s time to call your local wildlife removal company!

Rat Removal & Remediation Process

There are several steps involved in rat removal, but you can trust our experienced technicians to handle it with ease. Because rats can chew through walls, and they’re notoriously persistent, it’s important to have a long-term rat control strategy. We’ll begin by inspecting your home for entry points, then sealing those entry points, effectively locking the rats inside. This makes them easier to trap, which is how we’ll remove the rat population from your home. After trapping in key areas, we’ll seal off any remaining openings, and may recommend population control services (bait stations) to continue monitoring the problem. In the vast majority of cases, these strategies work well, but you can always trust Metro Wildlife to stay on top of your rat issue, no matter what.

Clean Up

Removal of rat droppings from your home will help reduce odors as well as help identify activity in future inspections. If the droppings have been removed, the new droppings will indicate new activity.


This process helps reduce any lingering odors and will kill any parasites the rats may have been carrying and left behind. It may not be possible to clean inaccessible areas.
