We will also work with you to ensure any entries are sealed off in your home to prevent future infestations. Manning’s team of exterminators is the best choice for rat removal


Two common rats in North Carolina include:


  • Roof or Black Rat: find their way into your attic and roof, and cause damage to electrical wiring.
  • Sewer or Brown Rat: burrow in gardens and your home’s foundation or lower levels.

Why Are Rats Dangerous?

It is important to get rid of rats as soon as possible to avoid damage to your home and your health. Nothing is off-limits to rats within your home, from metal to plastic and even wooden beams, they will sink their teeth in and cause some serious damage. They also can transmit numerous diseases, posing a real health risk to humans. 


While opossums are not aggressive or a threat, they can certainly be a pain to deal with. Their hissing or drooling is often mistaken for rabies, but rabies is quite rare in opossums. A mother and her babies will often find their way under your deck for a nice place to rest, which can also make it difficult to get rid of them.  Manning’s team is well equipped and experienced to handle your opossum removal needs! 


How to Prevent Opossums 

There are several steps you can take to prevent opossums from prowling around your home or even entering your home. The steps include:


  • Make sure your trashcan lids are secure
  • Pick up fruit that may have fallen off your trees
  • Put up any pet food that may have been left outside 
  • Close pet doors into your home


Just the presence of a snake is enough to send a shiver down your spine. Sometimes it can be difficult to determine if a snake is venomous or not, so it is best to consult the experts.
