Rat Control Introduction

sgp badge

Sgt. Poopers provides all-natural non-toxic rat control in Dallas, Texas. Anywhere you see rat droppings, you're looking at a surface contaminated by infectious rat urine which can spread 35 diseases. Once rats have marked an area with urine, it tells the whole rat community the area is safe from predators, provides good food, and sex is available. As a conservation company, our four-step holistic approach to rat infestations deals with all factors that create the problem in the first place.

"This whole neighborhood has a terrible rat problem because we're right next to Turtle Creek. At night, they congregate on our patio and leave droppings. We tried everything to get rid of them and absolutely nothing worked. Sgt. Poopers came with a fresh approach and we noticed a complete difference the very next day. The rats have cleared out of our yard." KB

Helps prevent more than 35 diseases spread by contact with rat urine, rat feces, and contaminated dust including leptospirosis, Hantavirus, Lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCMV), Salmonellosis, Rat-bite Fever, Toxoplasmosis, cow pox virus, Q fever, pneumonia, plague, typhus, and tapeworms.

How to Get Rid of Rats

sgp badgeMany Dallas neighboorhoods are plagued by rats including Highland Park. At Sgt. Poopers, we can eliminate any outdoor rat problem within a few days and without using any chemical toxins, poisons, traps, or unsightly bait stations that totally don't work. Everything we do at Sgt. Poopers is safe for people, pets, and animals.

Traditional exterminators use a primitive approach to rat control that ignores critical factors which contribute to rodent problems in the first place. Sometimes they also have the disadvantage of spreading toxic synthetic chemicals, which can backfire by causing serious heath problems in humans and pets. In contrast, Sgt. Poopers is a conservation company, not an extermination company, so our protocols are based on the principles of conservation. Our approach is common-sense, holistic, always safe, and 100% effective. Our methodology works and you will see immediate results. On top of everything else, no contract is required.

Enjoy a Rat-Free Yard

But there's something else. Unlike traditional pest control companies geared to visit your home only once a month or once per quarter, we come weekly or even daily, so provide a FAR higher level of service for the same price (or less). Sgt. Poopers developed an exacting rat control protocol that works because it handles all relevant factors of outdoor rat infestations. There are five steps:

  1. Remove dog waste 2x to 5x per week (food for rats, roaches and flies)
  2. Remove rat feces
  3. Disinfect urine-marked areas and pathways with a special disinfectant
  4. Deodorize urine-marked areas and pathways with a special deodorizer
  5. Apply our proprietary essential-oil blend that repels rats (irritates their mucus membranes)

Rats are resourceful survivors, remarkably intelligent, and morbidly unsanitary. If you want to stop a rat infestation, we can help.

Get Rats Out of Your Car

Rats are resourceful burglars and can take up residence anywhere including inside a car you don't drive daily. Rats can damage the electrical system or fuel system by chewing on wiring or fuel lines. They can also build nests on top of catalytic converters or mufflers that can easily catch on fire. I put out just such a car fire once—a harrowing experience due to the danger of the fuel tank exploding. A rat or squirrel had made itself a nest of grass and leaves on top of the muffler just under the gas tank.

Our proprietary essential-oil blend smells great and stops rats from making nests in cars, equipment, or other places as long as it is regularly re-applied which is easy for us to do. Our treatment smells wonderful to humans, but irritates rodent mucus membranes in a non-harmful way. Just like you'd rather not live in a home that smells like a skunk, they'd rather not live in a nest that smells like our essential oil blend.


Diseases Spread By Rats

There's an urban myth that rats lack bladders. That's not true, but what is true is that rats urinate constantly wherever they go, dribbling and smearing small invisible droplets of urine to mark their territory and even each other. They also defecate frequently and you've no doubt seen their droppings. What you don't see and what most people don't realize is that anywhere you see rat droppings, you are also looking at a surface that is thoroughly contaminated by rat urine and dangerous pathogens.

  • sgp badgeRat urine is also responsible for the spread of many diseases including Leptospirosis which infects 100–200 Americans every year. If not caught early, Leptospirosis can result in liver and kidney damage. Complications include renal and liver failure, and cardiovascular problems.
  • Lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCMV) is another infectious disease (this one is viral) spread by rat urine. Human victims can experience long-term effects of lymphocytic choriomeningitis, while others may experience only temporary discomfort.
  • Other diseases spread by rat urine or feces include Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome, and salmonellosis. For this reason you should not go barefoot nor touch rat infested areas.

Socially, rats message each other through urine marking. This chemical messaging system communicates "this area is safe from predators" and "this area can provide good food that is safe to eat." Rat urine is also an advertisement of sexual availability which attracts many more rats.

Compounding the problem, rats multiply quickly. Female rats can produce 15 litters and 2,000 decendants in 12 months. While not all will survive, that's still a big number.

Removing Dog Waste (Rat Food)

Sgt. Poopers can enable you to enjoy your home the way it was intended—rat-free and disease-free. Both rats and cockroaches can eat dog waste. Rats then eat the cockroaches. It's always best not to leave food of any kind outside where rats can eat it. That includes bird seed which is a rat favorite. Sgt. Poopers will keep dog waste removed daily. Each spot where dog waste touched the ground is disinfected and deodorized with our non-toxic food-grade control agent so as not to attract flies, cockroaches (food for rats), and rats.

Disinfecting Rat-Infested Areas

sgtpoopers buttonSince rat urine and feces are loaded with disease, the first step is to thoroughly disinfect these surfaces. After we sweep up any feces, we apply our EPA-approved and EPA-registered, CDC-listed, NSF-certified "No-Rinse Required" food-grade hospital disinfectant that kills 99.999% of bacteria and viruses including eColi, Salmonella, Listeria and even super bugs like MRSA and HPAI in less than 60 seconds. NON-TOXIC to humans and pets, our disinfecting agent is the same new-generation chemistry used to stop the Ebola virus when it invaded Dallas in 2014.

Unlike chlorine bleach, which emits toxic fumes—trihalomethanes (THM) and haloacetic acids (HAAS) have been linked to cancer—our disinfectant is completely safe and non-toxic to humans and pets. It is EPA-registered in all 50 states; hypo allergenic; pH balanced; odorless with no offensive odor, no perfume, no fragrance, no taste; non-corrosive so it is safe on treated articles like carpeting, fabrics, natural stones, granite, marble, tile, plastics, furniture, wood, and draperies; and non-irritating to skin. It's application does not require gloves or respirators; and it does not contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs). As a bonus, it also kills and prevents spores from mold and mildew for up to seven months, breaks down and eliminates allergens from pet dander as well as dust mite and cockroach allergens.

Deodorizing Rat-Infested Areas

While rats mark areas as safe for hospitality, food, and sex, they don't have a method for marking dangerous areas. They only urinate to mark "good" areas. So by neutralizing the embedded layers of rat urine, we create a warning declaring the area as "unsafe," "there's nothing to eat here," and "there is no sex here." Our EPA-registered deodorizer eliminates all kinds of foul odors including from urine, feces, cigarettes, wood smoke, trash, septic systems, mold, mildew, stale cooking, rotting food, and more. Despite it's effectiveness, It remains completely safe for animals and can be used directly on pet bedding and sleeping areas. We apply to all contaminated surfaces that rats visit to eliminate embedded odors. This is how we completely eradicate urine odor so there is nothing left to attract rats.

Repelling Rats

sgtpoopers buttonSgt. Poopers uses an effective and 100% natural, all-organic deterrent that is non-toxic to humans, pets, plants, and beneficial insects like bees and butterflies. It is a proprietary essential oil blend that is Texas sourced with thousands of five-star reviews. Using a multi-step filtration process, this blend is purified of all unnecessary contaminants and any other potentially harmful ingredients. It does not contain phenols or phenolic compounds which can be harmful to birds. In fact, this blend is so non-toxic it does not require regulation by the EPA and cannot be over applied. Though it is an oil blend, the mixture is water based and leaves no oily residue. It does not attract dirt nor leave a slick surface once dry (which only takes a few minutes). The area can be immediately occupied by pets or anyone. Except rats! With the prior step of deodorizing done, the essential oil will be an effective deterrent that keeps rats out.
