The Tampa area and more specifically the Hunters Green area has seen plenty of growth in recent years, and though this influx of people and business in the area has had a positive impact, it has also attracted more activity from wildlife like rats and other rodents. These invasive species like to take up residence in homes and offices, and preventing that is critical to the health and well-being of your home, business, and loved ones.
Why Are Rats Dangerous?
Because their small bodies allow them to sneak into buildings through tiny openings and access tight spaces, rats can do serious damage to a home or office building. Common types of damage we see include:
- Damage in the attic area including damaged or soiled insulation, electrical wiring, and even damaged water piping – all of which can be costly to repair
- Damage to occupants in the form of infectious disease. Rats commonly carry diseases like leptospirosis, Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, and even the infamous bubonic plague, and can introduce these into your home or office, putting everybody at risk
Another reason for concern with rats is the speed at which they reproduce. A small number of rats can turn into an uncontrolled infestation in a short amount of time, increasing the chances for costly damage. Though there are numerous do-it-yourself rat trapping and removal options available, the most effective option will always be to call a professional wildlife control service like Critter Control® of Tampa.
