Even in a large city like Tampa that is always growing and is constantly bustling, rat infestations remain a threat in residential and commercial areas alike. Making sure that your home or business is free of invasive critters is imperative to protecting your family’s well-being, as well as that of your business assets or employees.
What Makes a Rat Invasion Dangerous?
In spite of their small size and elusive nature, rats can do serious damage to a home or business and often introduce a host of dangerous, infectious diseases wherever they go. Some of the most common rat problems we see include:
- Soiled, damaged, or destroyed attic insulation, wiring, and even water pipes – all of which can be costly and time-consuming to repair
- The introduction of dangerous infectious diseases like leptospirosis, Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, and even the bubonic plague into your home, which are often dangerous or even deadly in some cases
In order to stop a rat infestation before it grows out of control, you should call for professional help at the first sign of their activity. Though there are countless DIY rat removal options available, they are often only somewhat effective at trapping the critters, and they do nothing to address the cause of the infestation. To keep yourself out of harm’s way and ensure that the infestation is completely dealt with, you should always use a professional rat removal service like Critter Control of Tampa.
Why Critter Control?
Due to their ability to reproduce very quickly, rat populations will often outpace a DIY homeowner’s ability to remove them with commercially available traps. That combined with a rat’s ability to become aggressive if they feel cornered is a perfect reason to call in professional reinforcements.
