The Lake Nona area is well known for its high end, high-quality homes, but rat infestations are still a possibility in even the newest house. Keeping rats from getting a foothold in your home is important to ensuring the safety of your property and family.
Why Are Rats Bad?
Rats are small in size, but the damage they can do is anything but. Some of the most common issues we find include:
- Damaged or destroyed thermal insulation, wiring, and even water pipes – all of which can lead to extensive damage and expensive repairs
- The introduction of dangerous infectious diseases like leptospirosis, Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, and even the bubonic plague into your home – all of which can be deadly under the right conditions
- Chewed up and contaminated food containers in your kitchen as they search for an easy food source to feed their young
The most important thing to remember when you discover rat activity in your home is to act quickly. Even a small infestation can result in big damage, and even though there are many DIY options on the market for removing rats, you should always leave it up to the professionals for the best results.
