Frequently Asked Questions

What kills rats instantly?

 

Snap traps are among the quickest and most effective means of killing rats if placed properly and when a large number of traps are used. As technology continues to progress, electronic rat traps are being developed and sold. While these traps show considerable results and are electronically connected to cell phones or other devices a homeowner will know immediately when a rat is caught. It is best to ask your pest control professional whether they recommend and use these products.

Which Scents Keep Rats Away?

 

Rats have an initial aversion to some odors and tastes, but no repellent products have been found to solve a rat problem for more than a very short time, plus no truly effective rat repellents are presently known to be registered for use.

Smoke or gas cartridges are registered and sold for controlling burrowing rodents. When placed into the burrows and ignited, these cartridges produce toxic and suffocating smoke and gases. Because Norway rat burrows can extend beneath a residence and have several open entrances, toxic gases can permeate the dwelling. For this reason and because some fire hazard is associated with their use, smoke and gas cartridges aren’t recommended for rat control in or nearby homes.

DIY Rodent Control

 

DIY rat control can sometimes rid your home of rats but can also pose hazards. In most cases, safe and effective rat control is best left to professionals  For numerous homeowners, household methods of getting rid of rats are commonly used; however, there is a critical need to focus on educating the consumer about potential dangers and drawbacks when using self-help rat control and then let the consumer make the decision about how to proceed with eliminating the rat problem.

The answer to this question is directly related to the degree of caution exercised when using rodenticides and traps. To maximize safety, always place traps or other rat control products in protective containers designed for protection of people and pets. Also, one must always avoid handling dead rodents with bare, unprotected hands and prevent contact with rat ectoparasites or diseased animals.

Pest busterzz is THE best!! Our apartment building is infested with German roaches, but they kept them out of our apartment. by the 4th treatment we weren’t really seeing any. By the 6th treatment we were able to go without seeing 1 for a full month. They also ended up getting in our car and they got them out quick! They set the proper expectations from the beginning and always explain what they are doing and using. I would recommend them to anyone

Pest Busterzz hizo un excelente trabajo en mi pequeño apartamento con una fumigación profunda en cada rincón, me explicó muy bien como iba a ser el procedimiento y las medidas de seguridad que debía tomar ya que luego de rociar los químicos debía esperar varios días a que estos hicieran su efecto, al el día de hoy no he visto ni una sola cucaracha y eso me hace feliz. Gracias Alejandro por el buen trabajo y tu profesionalismo.

Whatever you’re paying Alejandro, it isn’t enough. Alejandro takes phenomenal care of our property and leaves no stone unturned when it comes to pest/rodent control. I recently needed rodent control service and Alejandro went to the moon and back to ensure our home was defended properly and odor free. His knowledge and natural ability to be two steps ahead of the situation was most impressive

Super happy to leave a review for these guys. When I came into my family’s house it had a German roach infestation in both the kitchen and the bathrooms especially, but also throughout the house. After two appointments the roaches were COMPLETELY GONE. Not one was seen after and I haven’t seen them now in months. These guys are miracle workers, professional, and timely. If I ever have a need again they will be my first call. Highly recommended!

You don't have to look any further!!! This company is AWESOME!!! I was having a major problem with iguanas that were destroying my house & I called a couple of companies and decided to go with this one. I'm so HAPPY I did. Alex was the gentleman that came to my house and within 20 minutes he got 6 big daddy's. I was floored to say the least. He's a professional and an asset to this company. He came back once a week for a few weeks and completely took care of things. I would recommend them so HIGHLY!!!THANK YOU GUYS FOR EVERYTHING. YOU'RE THE BEST

I had a really bad German roach infestation in my car 😫 After trying to treat it myself with no results, I finally decided to call Pest Busterzz. Alex came out the same day and treated my car. When I say I saw a change in 24 hours, I saw a change! No more live roaches! I stopped seeing any activity at all in the next 48 hours and I finally have my car back! Thank goodness for Alex and Pest Busterzz!
