Common Signs of a Rat Outbreak

The first step to preventing a rat infestation is to know what attracts them to a space. When they decide to nest, it is usually in a place that has easy access to sources of food and water. Rats like to hide in dark, wet, and isolated spaces, such as:

  • Drains and sewers
  • Dark storage areas, such as sheds or garages
  • Kitchens
  • Attics, walls, lofts, and basements

Rats will eat almost anything, whether it is cardboard, insulation, drywall, or electrical wiring. Because of this, they can quickly cause extensive (and expensive) damage to your property. When you see tail marks, oily footprints, or general debris and crumbs trailed around your business, these are telltale signs of a rat outbreak. It can be difficult to figure out how large the rat population is when investigating it on your own, and with the serious health risk this pest poses to humans and other animals alike, it is best to leave the extermination to the experts.

Rat Removal Process

Taking on a rat outbreak can be a time-consuming and dangerous process to do on your own, which is why Critter Control of Tampa is here to help. We’ve designed our commercial rat removal service to protect you, your employees, and your customers by implementing a three-step process.

Step 1: Sanitation

When rats invade your property, it is usually in search of food, water, and shelter. Our trained technicians will perform a free inspection to investigate what could be attracting the rats to your property, and recommend ways to make your business less attractive to them in the future.

Simple ways to make your business less noticeable to rats include:

  • Eliminating trash
  • Keeping areas clean, especially kitchens
  • Replacing broken wastebaskets
  • Keeping the landscaping near the building well maintained and keeping it clear of dog excrement, food leftovers, and woodpiles.

Step 2: Exclusion

During our inspection, we will check over the building to find out how the rats are entering, and then make the appropriate recommendations to ensure they don’t get back in. Ways to prevent rats from coming back to your business include:

  • Covering all vents with hardware cloth
  • Securing gaps around loose pipes and filling in any holes
  • Adding metal kick plates to discourage chewing on walls
  • Replacing weather stripping on doors and windows
  • Sealing any cracks in your walls or foundation
  • Replacing broken windows or doors

Step 3: Prevention

After determining the cause and extent of the rat outbreak, we implement a custom-designed preventive rodent control program specially catered for your business’s situation. Not only will we get the rats out of your commercial property, we will take steps to prevent them from returning in the future.
