Since rats are no strangers to homes and businesses in West Palm, it is important to learn the best ways to rat-proof your buildings. Once a rat finds its way into your home, it’s very easy for the infestation to grow due to the rate at which rats can reproduce. Rats are most comfortable in your walls and attic, so they could live in your home for months until you realize they are there. And while they’re there, they’ll have no problem wreaking havoc in your home by chewing wires and ripping insulation. Trust the rat experts at Critter Control® West Palm to quickly and efficiently remove all the unwanted critters from your home. While dealing with rats in the meantime, you should remember the following:
- Do not touch the rats or their droppings
- Keep nesting materials out of reach such as paper and cardboard
- Try using repellants like mothballs or essential oils
- Coordinate with apartment neighbors to keep watch of the rats and their movements
- Keep food stored properly
- Call a pest control specialist
If you happen to see them, steer clear of rat droppings. Rats carry a plethora of fatal diseases that can spread through bites or their waste. If you believe that you are encountering a rat infestation in your home or business, you can trust the experts at Critter Control® West Palm to clear them out in a humane and timely manner. After they are removed, we’ll clean any messes the rats left behind, and seal your home so you won’t have to worry about future infestations. For a free consultation, call us today at 561-274-0224.
