Rats around the house

Rats are a nuisance, destructive, unsanitary, and can carry dangerous bacteria and viruses. You may become aware of a rat infestation due to scratching sounds from walls, floors, or ceilings. Evidence of an infestation may also be discovered by their droppings. Other signs of an infestation include the strong scent of urine and chewed holes in siding, molding, or cupboards. A rat’s nesting habits can cause difficult-to-repair structural damage to your building, and their eating habits can cause contamination of food storage and food preparation areas.

Client Testimonials

Extreme takes care of bugs in our rentals. They have done bed bugs, roaches, rodents, and spider/ant sprays. We’ve had them remove bee’s nests. These guys have done it all. Rick there is a cool dude. Best pest company around hands down.”


Awesome job handling our large yellow jacket nest. We had no idea where they were coming from but Tyler found it pretty quickly. He was on time, very personable, and he quickly took care of the problem. I’ll use them for any problems from here on out! Thank you!!

Happy with our residential service. We pay a year in advance, and get a discount. And, when we get the occasional pest, it seems like the next day is time for our next treatment – we don’t see any more after that. No complaints, and better yet, no bugs.

I used extreme exterminating because I had a massive ant problem I came home work and my kitchen was just flooded with them. I called Extreme they showed up their prices were great I haven’t seen 1 and since the day they sprayed


Matt is knowledgeable and honest. Thank you so much for not taking advantage of my moms situation and having great communication throughout the process. Will recommend.


Had my exterior sprayed because of lady beetles, boxelder bugs, and stink bugs. Extreme Exterminating did a great job! They were fast, reasonably priced, and very thorough.


Fantastic experience! Boxelder bugs gone for good! Fast, easy to work with and extremely knowledgeable. I will use them again for regular pest control.
