Not only do rats cause extensive damage due to their chewing, nesting, and hoarding habits, but they are also extremely unsanitary creatures. And, when your business becomes infested with them, you are put at risk to receive hefty fines, or worse, are forced to shut down all operations until your rat problems are resolved.
Because your business is how you and your employees earn a living, it’s crucial you hire an experienced wildlife removal company to avoid losing both profits and customers. Critter Control® of Tampa’s commercial rat removal service gets rid of all unwanted rodents, allowing you to promptly carry on with your daily work activities.
At Critter Control® of Tampa, we’ve designed our commercial rat removal service to protect you, your employees, and your customers by implementing a three-step process.
- Sanitation – Rats invade businesses in search of food, water, and shelter. Our trained technicians will perform a free consultation to investigate what could be attracting the rats to your property. We will then recommend ways to make your business less attractive, such as:
- Eliminating trash
- Keeping areas clean, especially the kitchen
- Replacing broken wastebaskets
- Keeping landscape near the building well maintained
- Exclusion – During our inspection, we will check how the rats are entering and then make the appropriate recommendations to ensure they don’t get back in. Those suggestions could include:
- Covering all vents with hardware cloth
- Securing gaps around loose pipes and filling in any holes
- Adding metal kick plates to discourage chewing
- Replacing weather stripping on doors and windows
- Prevention – The best way to keep rats out of your business is with a custom-designed preventive rodent control program.
