For centuries, rats have plagued both congested metropolitan areas and rural areas alike, causing untold damage and spreading disease. Being the adaptable creatures that they are, rats have taken well to nesting in our homes and offices. If you suspect that rats have taken up residence in your home or office, don’t wait to take action. These critters are known to carry a number of different infectious diseases that can put you and your family at risk.
What Can You Do?
Don’t be fooled by the numerous commercial trap options available for handling a rat infestation, we never recommend that a homeowner attempt to trap and relocate rats on their own. Putting yourself in harm’s way just to try and remove a rat from your home is not worth it. They often build their nests in attics and crawlspaces, and are very good at staying out of sight, so if you do see one or two around your home, chances are that the infestation is much larger than that. Even rat waste can transmit dangerous diseases, which is why our rat removal technicians will thoroughly clean any affected surfaces once your infestation has been removed.
