Nobody likes the sight of big black furry creature hiding in their kitchen cabinet but this unsightly appearance isn’t the only things homeowners stress over when they have a rat in their house. If your humble abode is infiltrated by even one of these rodents, you should act fast. Hire a professional pest control service to get rid of the problem before it multiplies and causes an infestation.
Why Do I Need to Get Rid of Rats?
The damages done by rats in your home are numerous. Everyone knows the basic one: they eat your feed and pollute them. Food poisoning is a pretty imminent threat caused by rodents in the house but there are more damages these cunning little animals can do!
1. They chew and gnaw all the time: Rats and mice can’t get enough of chewing and gnawing. They can chew just about anything and this could be pretty damaging to your property. Wood, clothes and even wires are not safe when a rat has invaded your home. These rodents also gnaw at furniture and can cause the upholstery to tear and get damaged.
2. Insulation Problems: Perhaps one of the favorite things mice like to chew is the electrical insulation on wires. This could result in your wires getting naked and hazardous and could potentiate a fatal house fire.
3. They build nests wherever they can: Be it in the couch or in your washing machine, these rodents will find a place to make a nest just about anywhere that’s dark and humid. Appliances can get damaged and broken from the inside.
4. They can cause disease: Apart from the damage done to your home, the most dangerous consequence of rat infestation is the threat to your health. Along with food poisoning, rats can cause other diseases through the spread of bacteria.
Protect your home and your family from the dangers of a rodent in your house by hiring an pest exterminator immediately!
