Las Vegas Has A Rat & Rodent Issue
Here in Las Vegas, many home owners experience rat, mice, or rodent issues, especially during particular times of year. In Las Vegas and the Southwest especially, rats and rodents move from dwelling outside into your home because the environment becomes harsh, and plainly put, your home becomes much more inviting.

Most Common Rodents in Southern Nevada
The most common rodent associated with problems in the Las Vegas Valley is the common Roof Rat. The Roof Rat has been living alongside humans for hundreds of years and can be found in nearly every nook and cranny of America, but more prominent in urban environments. They. scavenge when absolutely necessary but typically feed on natural food like seeds and vegetation.
Because of the speed that Roof Rats reproduce, an unchecked infestation can quickly go from bad to worse. These rodents can cause an unbelievable amount of damage from burrowing and nesting as well as health hazards from large amounts of fecal matter which is extremely harmful to humans.
Reliable Rodent Pest Solutions
Seeking rat or rodent pest control? If rats or mice have become a problem for your home or business, there are a handful of things you should know before contacting a pest control specialist.
As with any wild rodent, we strongly advise you not to handle them yourself. Rats, mice or any other wild rodents carry diseases, harmful bacteria, viruses, and other organisms especially harmful to humans. Rats and other rodents are carriers of more than 60 documented diseases and viruses. Probably the most well-known of these diseases is the bubonic plague. Also known as the Black Death, bubonic plague is transmitted by the bite of infected rats and rodents or the fleas they carry. The bubonic plague is deadly to humans and it is not worth the risk to you or your family.
Finding a rodent within your home or business, the best advice is to contact a local pest control professional for safe removal and control. Typically the presence of one rat can be a strong sign of possible infestation. Rodents are extremely resilient and can prove difficult to properly control without the help of a pest control professional. Not only can rat infestations cause serious and costly damage to your property and belongings, the diseases that can be transmitted by rats and other rodents can be extremely harmful to you and your family. If you feel you may be experiencing a rodent or rat infestation, please contact experienced pest control professionals immediately.
HOW WE TREAT FOR RODENTS LIKE RATS OR MICE
There are different methods out there for Rats and Mice but some sure-fire ways to get these little guys under control are standard in the industry. With a little experience and some hard work, your rodent issue should be handled fairly quickly.
Bait and snap trapping are the number one options out there. Professionals like Red Rock Pest Control are licensed to use specific baits designed to attract Rodents and kill them in a humane manner. Bait is always used inside of a rodent station. This is the safest method to keep your pets and other unwanted guests away from the bait. Unfortunately for the Rats or Mice, they love these boxes and once they feel comfortable accessing the box, it’s game over for them. They can’t resist the bait.
Snap Trapping is another option. Sometimes we must use snap traps for Rats because, in places like attics, Rats and other rodents are a little more comfortable and curious. Setting traps also ensure you don’t have a dead rodent stinking up your house after dying.
There are other key things that can be done to help out with a rodent infestation. Exclusion work such as sealing up openings is a good start. Also keeping trees trimmed away from your home will keep roof rats from sneaking in through openings on top of your home.

Easy Mice & Rat Prevention TIps
If you own a home or property her in the Vegas valley, there are a few areas that you can check immediately for signs of rat or mice trouble.
If you have extensive landscaping and vegetation, start there. You will see signs of nesting, burrowing. Check near wood piles as well. You may also see seeds or other signs of feeding. Aside from vegetation and landscaping debris, also check around heating and cooling piping, PVC pipes or really any small cracks or crevices that enter your home or property. Rats and rodents can fit inside of any hole or entryway that they can fit their head into, which means anything smaller than a quarter! It’s pretty remarkable when you see it on a Nature documentary, but not so remarkable when it’s your home. If you are experiencing rat or rodent problems or would like to ensure you never do, call Red Rock Pest Control for your free inspection.
We called yesterday and spoke with Dustin who was very professional and friendly. We had John, his partner out this AM ( came right on time within window of 2 hrs given) and was sooooo great! He explained what the process was and why as well as answered all our questions! He even helped roll out 4 long rolls of carpet ( not installed yet in our new home) to spray them preventatively! He was very professional and friendly as well! He will be back out in a month so we will see how the spray works… But so far the service has been excellent! Thank u John & Dustin!
