Rat Removal in San Diego

Brown rats have acute hearing, are sensitive to ultrasound, and possess a very highly developed sense of smell. The vision of a typical rat is poor, around 20/600. Rats perceive colors similar to colorblind humans, their blue perception, however, also has UV receptors, allowing them to see ultraviolet lights that some species cannot.

Rats are considered omnivores and eat a wide range of foods, including seeds, fruit, stems, leaves, fungi, and a variety of invertebrates and vertebrates. They are not very specific in their food preferences, which is indicated by their tendency to feed on any meal provided for cows, swine, chickens, cats, and dogs.

Rat Control & Removal San Diego

Rats Chew Electrical Wiring & Contaminate Food

Rats breed rapidly and can easily take over a structure in a matter of weeks. They destroy insulation and wiring to create their nests and contaminate food sources in your home to feed their young. Rats also spread disease through their feces and urine and can bring other unwanted pests to your home like fleas, mites and bed bugs. It is important to exterminate rats as soon as you detect them, to prevent a colony from establishing in your home or business.

What Our Customers Are Saying

5 star review

Hearing noise in the walls and I did not know what was going on. I called a few companies, they were very expensive and did not find everything. Thank God I found License to Kill. They found how rodents were getting into my home and they came up with a solution on how to get rid of them. They were half the cost and came back to do follow up services like remove the dead bodies. Now I'm on a monthly pest control plan. Anyone in San Diego with rodent problem should give License to Kill a call.

I heard rodents in walls and in the attic. I called several companies but inspections were fast and very costly. I called License to Kill, they went everywhere and found a solution and came up with a monthly program that worked for me. I recommend them to anyone in San Diego.

5 star review

I usually don't take the time to comment about a service, however, I have been quite impressed with License To Kill. We had a rat problem for a long time and tried many different things to get rid of them. Finally, we called License To Kill and they took care of the rat problem in a very prompt, professional, and affordable way. I wish we would've called them sooner. I also appreciate that they didn't try to sell us a service we didn't need. They are fair, honest, and true professionals. From now on, I surely will call License To Kill for any and every pest problem we have. Thank you so much!

  • "License to kill got rid of the mice in my garage and the ants in the patio! I tried another "big name" company first but they were rude and blamed me for their lack of success. License to Kill came out and found out where the mice were coming in from, fixed it and got rid of the mice inside. They also eliminated my ant problem within a couple weeks time! Job well done!!!"
