One of the issues with a rat infestation is that they can spread dangerous diseases or aggravate existing conditions, including:
- Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome
- Lymphocytic choriomeningitis
- Bubonic plague
Because rats can carry these diseases, we strongly recommend that you do not try to address your rat problem on your own. Leave the dirty work to the experts at Kilter Termite and Pest Control!

Rats are mammals, like cats and dogs, which makes them tricky to deal with when compared to insect pests. Rodents are very smart, which can make tracking them down and eliminating them very difficult. But, because rodents are just looking for food, water, and shelter like other pests, it means that by finding the sources of these resources, we can effectively eliminate these creatures.
With our Southern California rat exterminator services, we emphasize fast and effective solutions that limit the amount of disruption to you and your family. We will first conduct a thorough home inspection to identify the size and scope of your rat problem before we design a solution for your unique situation.

The pest control technician told me that for my own safety, I should leave the house during the treatment. Is that necessary?A:
To ensure that the treatment is being done properly, the homeowner should observe the treatment process. Unless the homeowner is chemically sensitive, there should not be any adverse health problems associated with a treatment done correctly. Ask questions of the pest control technicians. Keep track of how long it takes them to do the job.
My next-door neighbor has termites and is going to have his house treated. I've been told that the termites will attack mine.A:
Termites move randomly through the soil searching for a source of food (wood). They do not have the ability to know exactly where your house is. So, if your next-door neighbor treats his home for termites, your house isn’t automatically the termites’ next lunch. No, your house does not need to be treated; but, if there are active termite infestations in your neighborhood, it is a good idea to have it inspected.
How do I know if I am getting a good inspection?A:
The best thing you can do is to be involved and observant in the inspection process. For example if you request an inspection and the inspector doesn’t inspect obvious areas such as your garage, attic, basement, etc., then you may need to consult an additional company. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
How long do we have to be out of the house?A:
Fumigation process normally takes 3 days and 2 nights unless there is a holiday or weekends or if special arrangements are made. Kilter’s Stay in Your Home termite treatment requires no leaving your home at all.
