Rats are some of the most problematic rodents we encounter. They can cause many issues such as eating and contaminating food, damaging structures and property, and spreading parasites and bacteria around your home. If you think you may have a rat problem, call Critter Control of Miami right away. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to trap the rats, allowing more time for them to multiply.
Signs of a Rat Problem
Rats are most active from June through February and in the fall will begin entering homes and businesses in search of warmth and food. Once they find an accessible food source, they will often nest within the walls or crevices to stay close to the food.
You can look for signs of infestation by examining baseboards, underneath sinks, and in cabinets, making sure to pay attention to any droppings or grease stains you may find. Inspect food containers for holes, as well as keeping an eye out for any nests typically built in empty boxes or crates. Of course, the most obvious sign of a rat problem is physically seeing one. If that’s the case, contact us immediately!
What’s the Best Way to Get Rid of Rats?
There are many articles online that explain how to trap rats yourself. This can be a challenging task for home or business owners, especially if you have a rat infestation in your home or office. Misusing rodenticides could potentially put your children and animals at risk. Trying snap traps is an alternative, but will have you checking every day for dead rats to throw away before they begin decomposing.
