No matter where you live in Central Florida, including the beautiful city of Windermere, it’s possible rats may invade your home and take up residence in your attic. Keeping these critters at bay is critical to a clean, healthy, and safe living environment for you and your family.
The Impact of Rats to Your Windermere Property
Although small in size, rats can be destructive. If they’ve made your property their home, they can:
- Damage your attic insulation, wiring, and structural beams
- Carry diseases, such as leptospirosis, rat-bite fever, and hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, which are potentially deadly
- Bring fleas into your home and spread them to your pets and family members
- Contaminate your pantry foods while looking for supplies for themselves and their young
Without swift action, the potential impact of these critters heightens. You can attempt to remove the animals yourself, but doing so often puts yourself and your family in danger.
Professional Rat Removal is Critical
Without the proper tools and experience, rat removal can be nearly impossible. Rats are intelligent creatures, and they are quick to identify threats and change traveling patterns to avoid foreign objects in their path, such as traps. In addition, their aggressive nature when threatened can result in severe injuries to individuals who try and remove rats without the proper equipment and experience.
