Rat Nests in Glendale, Arizona

Glendale residents are concerned about rats.

We believe a pack of rats has taken up residence in our garage. They pull items from the garage into one area, bring in dog feces and cactus fruit. They also makes nests everywhere and leaves mice looking droppings. Rats have gotten out of the small mouse traps and larger rat traps. The large wire traps have not yet been tried. A box of rat poison was found eaten - half of the container too, but the rats are still here. HELP!" Tiffany K.

We seem to have rats nesting in the space beneath the house extension, and they have chewed through the floor so they can enter the house. I know there are at least two of them and they are not fully grown yet as I saw them last night. I don't want to poison them because we have dogs who can get to that area. I am also not particularly fond of the idea of using snap traps for much of the same reason. Sandy J.

We have a rat infestation which started in and under the shed in our back yard. I counted 40 rats running on the fence at dusk last night. They have destroyed much of my garden and continue to do so. They are now beginning another nest under the window closer to the patio near the foundation of the house. They are burrowing into the ground to make their nests at the foundation of the house. We have used traps-- both glue and spring-- and caught about 10 and have used poison. It started months ago and is escalating. Our efforts seem futile. Please help! Robert C.


We solve many types of wildlife control conflicts in Glendale and surrounding areas. Give us a call if you need expert animal removal and/or live wildlife trapping. We can also perform an inspection of your property to evaluate the problem.

Many of the projects we solve involve raccoon families in attics and chimneys, mud swallow nests on stucco, woodpeckers drilling siding, voles and gophers destroying lawns, rats or squirrels thumping and bumping around inside walls and in attics, bat infestations, skunks stealing pet food and snakes living in crawlspaces and stone walls.

Along with physical damage and disease, wild animals also bring along disturbance and nuisance with all their noise and commotion and smell. Baby raccoons chirp and chitter like little birds; raccoons and rats will fight all night and keep people awake; skunk smell takes the cake, but have you ever smelled a dead animal in your ventilation system? We have seen much, much more than these problems, but that is a general idea of the kinds of problems that my professional wildlife removal operators and I are prepared to solve.

Not only do my technicians and I trap and remove problem wild animals, we do a lot of other dirty work, too. Don't hesitate to call us for dead animal removal, pigeon waste cleanup, bat guano removal, mouse droppings, decontamination, repairs, above ground and below ground rodent slick fencing, odor control for skunk spray, and the like. We are a full service pest control company with a wide range of animal control solutions.

I have been in the professional wildlife control business for many years. My favorite stories and experiences are removing bats from schools and churches.

For pigeon and bird control, bat removal, or relief from other pest animals, call our wildlife management experts. Many nuisance wildlife companies offer critter capture and control; our wildlife operators provide professional pest wild animal management. We remove the following AND MORE:

  • Bats from attics, eaves and belfries
  • Pigeons from rooftops
  • Swallow nests from eaves, stucco, log siding, and exterior walls
  • Voles that tear and dig up lawns and destroy root systems
  • Moles and gophers that damage golf courses and gardens

  • Feral cats from parks and neighborhoods

Swallows in Glendale, Arizona

The following are swallow problems related to us by residents of the Glendale Area:

We have a swallow problem. I have a two story stucco home and the swallows have taken a liking to it (under the second story eves). I have kept the mud washed off, but would like to find a solution that would keep them away. I am interested in decontamination and prevention of future nests.
Angela M.

We have a problem with barn swallows. We have one nest on our front porch and we cannot go outside without them swooping down and attacking us. The new birds are looking like they are ready to leave the nest soon and we were wondering if this will be the last of them this season or will there be additional hatching birds.
Jodie H.

I noticed today there were a bunch of swallows flying around my house. I walked around to inspect what was going on and to my surprise this year we are being visited by more than our normal family of mud swallows- they brought all their friends...All my eves are being covered by mud. I sprayed the walls down to slow them down because they are just starting to put in the mud shelves that are necessary to wall in their nests. I know this is a lossing battle and would like to get information on the siding you offer for the eves.
Thanks, Megan P.
