Rat Control

Rat Control & Rodent Removal Services

Humane Solutions provides Poison-Free Rodent, Mouse, and Rat Control Services with guaranteed results. We take a skilled approach to focus on the root cause of your rodent problem, which is often available resources and structural flaws allowing infestation.

We are proudly serving communities in the Okanagan area, Greater Vancouver, and the Islands in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

Permanent rodent removal requires unique expertise.

Rodents do not magically appear in your space just because you have crumbs behind your stove; they often exploit common structural flaws to gain access to structures for shelter and food.Similarly, extreme exterior rat and mouse populations are also usually due to available resources and ideal habitat.

Our rat control process usually consists of

  1. In-depth assessment
  2. Address available resources and structural flaws
  3. Install one-way doors to allow trapped rodents to exit
  4. Set trapping stations if necessary to address population
  5. Pull equipment and apply the warranty to structural work
Mice and rats can reproduce quickly. If you spot signs of a potential rodent infestation, you should act fast to minimize potential property damage and mitigate health and safety concerns.

Start with a Pest Impact Strategy Audit

Maybe you want to take a step back and look at the big picture before you pull the trigger on a new program or provider. Or maybe you have a pest-related problem you are having trouble solving. If this sounds like you, starting with a PISA could be the best starting point.

For the cost of an average callout, a PISA will empower you to make cost-effective, sustainable pest management decisions.

British Columbia’s Ban on Second-Generation Anticoagulant Rodenticides

As of July 21, 2021, a controversial 18-month ban on second-generation rodenticides was enacted by British Columbia’s Ministry of Environment without extending forewarning to pest control companies and other affected industries. The move has been received as bold and met with polarizing opinions from industry and the public. In retrospect, the ban has been in the works for a while. Local organizations such as the OWL Rehabilitation Society and grassroots movements such as Rodenticide Free BC have been collecting data on the use of rodenticides and lobbying the government for years.  Broadly, the ban was driven by two main factors:
  1. There is little evidence proving rodenticides have a meaningful and long-term impact on micro and macro-rodenticide populations and their associated problems.  
  2. There is mounting evidence of the environmental degradation caused by the mass use of rodenticides.  
While the order is in place, the Ministry conducts a scientific review to make recommendations for future use of SGARs in B.C.

Nope. You have likely purchased your stations and their contracts typically don’t hold water. Simply call them and state you won’t tolerate poison on your property and if they can’t provide an equal trapping alternative, you don’t want their services. Usually, they pull you from the route and leave the equipment for us to deal with. 

This works most of the time. We’re here to help at any point.

Most of our clients experience overnight, permanent results for structural rat control services and an immediate improvement for exterior rat management.
