Thank you so much for ridding my home of RATS. This was a harrowing two month adventure. The first company I called spent a lot of time telling me how hard it was to rid a house with a flat roof of these pests. I travel for business often, leaving my wife at home in a rat infested house, complete with noises in the night and bites taken from food in the kitchen. You guys were instrumental in isolating and catching the rats, which required many visits. Thank you so much!
