When rats enter your home or business, it is important to handle it as quickly as possible or else you run the risk of damages to your home or spreading diseases to your family or coworkers. The best way to keep rats from costing you hundreds of dollars in damages is to catch them early on. Look out for the following warning signs that could mean you have rats in your home:
- Foul odors. The longer rats stay in your home, the more time their urine and feces have to build up and create a foul stench. When their waste seeps into your walls and ceiling, it can also leave stains.
- Noise in your ceiling or walls. A rat’s favorite place to build their nest is in your walls or attic. Since humans don’t frequent those areas often, they can rest there undisturbed and have access to nesting material like attic insulation.
- Ruined belongings. Along with chewing on the infrastructure of your home, rats file down their large incisors using any of the stored personal belongings that may be in your attic.
What We’ll Do
Rats have the ability to reproduce at an alarming rate, which means if you are not aware they have entered your home, you may not notice them until it is too late. By hiring an expert exterminator from Critter Control® serving Ft. Lauderdale, you get the assurance that the rats will be taken care of quickly and safely. In some cases, it is necessary to exterminate these vermin rather than trap and release them, as a large population of them can do extensive damages and pose a serious threat to the health of those around them.
