The Montverde area has become an increasingly popular residential area of Central Florida in recent years, and though this influx of people and business has brought businesses and families to the area, it has also brought with it an increase in rat activity. Protecting against invasive animals like rats is important not only to the wellbeing of our homes and offices, but to the health of you and your loved ones as well.
What Makes a Rat Dangerous?
Thanks in part to their small size, rats can infiltrate most homes or offices with ease. Their bodies can fit through openings smaller than an inch in diameter, meaning potential trouble for your valuable assets. Some of the most common kinds of damage we see rats create include:
- Soiled or destroyed attic 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 or business – all of which can put your loved ones or employees at serious risk
One of the things that makes a rat infestation so dangerous is how quickly they can reproduce. A small handful of rats can take over a property in an alarmingly short amount of time, so it is important to seek help as soon as you notice their presence.
It might seem like a worthwhile idea to buy some of the many DIY trapping methods available on the market, but without the necessary knowledge and experience most DIY efforts are ineffective and do nothing to address why the rats were able to enter in the first place.
