This article will analyse and recount a rat extermination and pest-proofing service in The Beaches. This infestation was a long-standing rat issue on the customer’s property. It will detail the steps taken in exclusion, by the technician, to eradicate the rat infestation. This visit is located between Kingston Road and Queen Street East in the beaches in east Toronto. The technicians, before the exclusion, must first inspect and confer with the customer or customer’s on the issue and then must inspect for levels of activity. The customer’s original complaint was a rat infestation that has been going on for a long period of time and that the shed on their property was the focus of the infestation. A technician was sent out to inspect the property for exclusion and activity. The Beaches, East York: Toronto’s Pride and Joy in the East End The beaches are a favourite spot for almost all Torontonians. With winter as harsh as it is, most people in Toronto spend half the year longing for warmth. When the summer does come, or even the early spring, people flock to Ontario beaches for a day of swim and sun. This area was once a swamp however, it was drained and the forest was cleared and a board-walk was built. From then on the beaches have been one of the most beautiful parts of Toronto. Exterior Inspection When the technician arrives on site they will perform an exterior inspection of the outside of the house. The initial inspection on-site revealed a severe rat issue and a large number of openings around the garage-shed. Wall vents that were open to access were found as well as burrowing under the shed. Foundation gaps were located and the property had a large amount of detritus material throughout the yard. Interior Inspection The interior inspection showed that the shed needed interior exclusion to prevent rats from entering and disinfection from the previous occupation. Initial Measures The technician found detritus and possible burrowing in the garage shed. Preventative exclusion was needed to keep the rats outside and to prevent them from managing to invade the house. Tamper proof bait stations were placed around the property to reduce exterior rat population. Proposed exclusion The technician excluded using brown metal flashing around the perimeter of the garage as well as around the kick plate, on the inside where wood was being chewed. This is key in all rat treatments whether the rats have gotten inside or not. Two wall vents were sealed off and a one-way rat door was installed at the foundation gap. Conclusion The technician excluded the garage-shed fully from the inside and attached a one-way rat door to the foundation gap. The rat issue was severe but after extensive exclusion and commercial grade rodenticide treatments the rats have been exterminated from the property and the home is now safe from a rodent invasion.
